To: The Strong-hearted,
From me to you, the pillars of a fulfilled life. Pillars to give your house called life strength, abundant success, love, and peace.
I give to you the pillar of compassion. Compassion for your brothers and sisters both of the same and different blood. Our compassion is our strength. Strength to be world changers, mountain movers, and formidable forces in the face of incomprehensible odds. Let your compassion be the catalyst that ignites the eternal flame that becomes the passion for and of life. If this flame grows dim your passion will fade.
I give to you the pillar of hope. Hope that every step leads to a better place than the steps before. Hope that your words will set the world on fire. Hope that everything that you touch turns to success. Hope that just around the corner is the victory of victories. Hope propels us forward. With it the future it always bright; without it darkness snuffs out the light. When you find yourself running out of steam remember it is hope that fuels you, its abundance is never ending. Don’t let your hope for a brighter day blind you from the realities of today. Instead, let hope be the blueprint that fuels your never-ending commitment for change and equality.
I give to you the pillar of self-worth. Self-worth is one of the most powerful tools one can possess. Others cannot find value in something that does not present itself as valuable. Let your self-worth your self-valuation be priceless. Let no one or nothing appraise your potential. Let your self-worth and self-valuation be greater than the universe. For your very DNA is derived from greatness and immeasurable journeys filled with both times of healing and times of great pain. Wear your battle scars like badges of honor. They are proof to the world that when knocked down you will continue to get up. That you will continue remain steadfast in your worth even when the world around you is worthless.
I give to you the pillar of faith. Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Your faith says you can when the world says you can’t. Your faith desires to see what the end will be when the beginning looks bleak. Faith removes the boundaries of comfort zones and thrusts you into a world where the only limitations are those you place on yourself. But your faith must be accompanied by deeds or its value becomes that no more precious than weeds. Your faith speaks even when the world refuses to listen. Your deeds force the world to listen and take account of your existence.
I give to you the pillar of vision. Vision to look beyond your current circumstances and see your destined place and position. Vision to recognize the material in a field of immaterial noise. Vision to recognize those things which keep you from your destined place and those things that will fuel the journey. Where there is no vision there is no hope and no sense of direction. Put on the blinders of self-worth and determination and press toward the mark.
