Remember the Matrix, that movie that rocked the world several years ago? I am a fan, maybe even a ‘groupee’, of that movie and it’s themes. There, everyone is looking for The One. Well, I’m not Neo, and I don’t do Kung Foo leaps, but I’m realizing that I’m The One.
There were thousands and thousands of little sperm racing to be The One many years ago (I’m not saying how many years, only my doctor knows for sure). When the strong fast swimmers got there, the egg looked at the thousand who made the journey and chose the perfect one, and I’m the result. So, in a way, I am THE ONE.
How do I live today, knowing that this is true for me? I don’t walk on water, the job of being Ghandi or Dr. ML King has been taken, so, when I walk out of my door in a few minutes, what does THE ONE named Sheryl do? What I can do is to be more authentically Sheryl in the next minute that I was in the last. I can remember that I am a light of a particular color and I can shine best by being me.
My new mantra that I offer to you today is this:
There is only one power,
and that is God expressing itself today as
_____________(your name goes here).
Bright blessing to you and to your day. It takes ONE to know ONE. Let’s be ONE together today.
