Let It Be Your Year to Shine
For the Benefit of All Sentient Beings
by Fred Tibbitts, Jr.
2009 has at last
arrived around the world. Most of us are hoping for change. Change for
the good. The President Elect of the United States has proclaimed “…At
This Defining Moment in American History…Change Has Come to America”.
And changed all we are; no matter our identity or whereabouts on planet
Gandhi said “Be the
change you seek”. But is it that simple? For most of us, our desire
for change is recognition that our lives are less than perfect; that we
feel driven to be connected with a better solution for our unhappiness
and perceived lack of satisfaction with our lives.
Many feel lost.
“Where are the great leaders of the past?” they ask, who arose to lead
us from the depths of despair, giving us hope that the future would soon
be better for everyone. They cry out “Is there not someone who will
show us the way?”
The truth is that we
all have the potential to be great leaders. Be the leader you seek.
Our intuitive self, the home of our connection with the Energy of the
Universe and all that is Real and Unreal, knows the way forward. We
need only ask and our path appears at our feet, bathed beyond our
imagination in the White Light that beckons us to begin our journey.
At every turn, events
and others would have us believe that we are at the mercy of our future;
that we are not in control of our destiny. Those who would discourage
us to be the leader we seek, do so because they, themselves are lost and
do not recognize their Amazing Grace within. Events unfold without
warning, suggesting that our fate is sealed, that we are defenseless to
make a difference or save our souls or more importantly, the souls of
But those who have
become One with their intuitive self and have learned to trust in it
know differently: We can see the way forward and we can be the great
leader we seek. We must have the unwavering conviction to look forward
and not be distracted by events and those who would seek to discourage
us with seemingly irrefutable logic. We must go against the wind, fire
and rain that assault us without conscience.
We must never
surrender our confidence that we will prevail, despite whatever our
analytic mind would argue or suggest we accept as reality. For our
reality, now and forever more is directly connected to the strength of
our belief in ourselves to be our solution and our hope for the
future. Never surrender your dreams. Never give-up and your future
will be what you make of it: Not what events or others would impose upon
Which brings us to
the motivation we must embrace to be the future we seek. Great leaders
are not focused on being great: They are focused on showing others the
way to a better place, never at the expense of any individual or group.
They exist to be a beacon in the night; the White Light that bathes our
path forward to that place where our dreams and altruistic ambitions
await, as a shelter for all from the storm.
If our genuine
intention is service to others, not ourselves, with unwavering
confidence that we can and must make a difference for the benefit of All
Sentient Beings, it will be so. We must be our future, but for the
benefit of all humanity. It is a perfect Universe: We need only
understand how it is organized and that we have the ability to be the
future we seek, but for the benefit of All Sentient Beings, not merely
The beauty of life is
service to others. Let 2009 be the year that we all become great
leaders and embark upon our path to that place which is our hope for a
better world for us all and that we constantly rededicate the merit of
our actions to the beauty of accomplishing these intentions without
recognition or glory for ourselves. Let us all be the Angel we seek.
