The Unknown Space In Your Mind Is Your Hidden Light and Strength

Welcome to the Unknown

Sometimes in life you will find yourself in a very unfamiliar place.  This place could be somewhere dark, light or however you wish to see it.  You will make many visits to this place during the course of your life.  

You could come here when you want to reflect, have fear of something.  What place I’m I referring to? Its the unknown.  

Be Free – Its going to be ok

The unknown place in our minds can become anything we choose for it to be.  Remember, this is your space – your rules.  Embrace it and breathe.  Take it all in.  Its good to self discover.  Reflect.  Put whatever you feel looks good in this place.  A tree, a waterfall, a garden, any setting you desire.  See what you just did?  You turned what could have potentially been a dark place, into your place of solitude.  Your Peace.  

Come to this place whenever you feel you need to.  Maybe you’re lost.  Need a sense of direction.  Or maybe when you feel weak.  

Your Weakness  – a Strength in Disguise

Did you know that your weakness could potentially be your strength in disguise?  See, in the real world, weaknesses become shackles for you.  They tie you down, make you feel heavy.  But in this space, the unknown space, it becomes a space where you embrace your weaknesses.  Acknowledgement of your weaknesses is key.  

Here’s what you can do 

I want you to imagine your weaknesses in a form of a shield.  And what is holding that shield?  Your Strength.  Your hand and arms holding that shield is your strength.  Hold onto it with everything you’ve got.  Protect your weaknesses, they are yours to keep.  

Weaknesses  – Key to Your Development

Your weaknesses, believe it or not, are key to your development.  Anything you desire now is within your reach.  Should you choose to protect it.  And this unknown place, is your environment where you will self discover, reflect, sit and think, or perhaps even meditate.  The moment you accept your weaknesses is the moment you will thrive in life.  I am a living example of that.  

Be accepting of everything around you whether you agree or disagree with it.  Acceptance and Acknowledgment is key.
