Strengths have their roots in the character of the Universe. Even deeper, Strength has its unique propelling root. As our social cultures push us to success and glitter, we tend to abandon the magic given to us, and over time, move further from knowing our ultimate strength. Begin to ask yourself: What compels you to find your Purpose in Life and Mission? Is there strength in knowing these roots?
Strength has endless connotations when comparing a bicep muscle to that of a curious mind or to that of a Supernova explosion. Strength is the vigor of Life and is found everywhere. Mankind devours itself in the mysteries surrounding its origin. What was the first man like? Were Adam and Eve really our first Earthly parents?
Which of the many faces of strength do you find compelling? Since everyone is unique, it doesn’t really matter to another. However true, the individual’s quest for strength preoccupies himself most of the time, at least subconsciously. The desire for wealth, fame, knowledge, even an identity, leads the way for most mindsets to build physical strength in society. On the other hand, the “Couch Potato” simply doesn’t qualify.
The design of the human body, especially your DNA, is empowered by strength. What’s being inferred here builds itself on the self-healing and problem-solving capacities inherent within the DNA molecules. It’s a fighting machine for your survival and does it’s very best to keep you going in Life.
Here’s where we find the essence of strength, which happens to be an automatic and self-propelling aspect to consider. The very design of your physical, social, emotional, and spiritual bodies find their roots in strength to exist. The driving force of strength predicates itself on continued strength; a self-fulfilling prophecy, indeed.
The stronger you become, the stronger you want to become. It’s a natural process, but the root of power now appears. With many successes, this behavior can become addictive—as we have seen throughout history and now the ego finds a purpose. What causes us to argue, become aggressive, and to dominate others all find its root in sustaining power. Strength serves as a camouflage of many human behaviors that are also shortcomings.
The ability to stay focused can be considered a valuable strength. Actually, staying focused is a masterful strength. Focus plays into some of the Divine Aspects of Strength, namely: health, joy, honesty, trust and peace. These require a strong conscientious mindset to weave oneself through all the trials and tribulations that Life steadfastly brings knocking at your door.
On the forefront of strength comes health. Having a healthy mind and body are fundamental behaviors to build upon. Why? Because having a sound mind and body takes discipline that requires focus and determination. These are strengths.
Maintaining a positive attitude, staying happy throughout the day sets the sparkle for joy. There is strength in joy as joy influences your surrounding and attracts the positives that reinforce an unbreakable loving attitude.
There is a major challenge in Life, and that is being honest, all the time, everywhere, and for every matter, whether personal or social. Honesty and integrity bound each other in the highest pursuits of human perfection, power and Divine Expression. The strength behind honesty is paramount. Honesty can be said to be one of the individual’s greatest strengths respected by others. Whom do you know exemplifies honesty?
Trillions of relationships compose our society. Without relationships, our social world would be flat and boring. The building blocks of a good relationship comprise themselves upon trust. Thus, it is trust that strengthens the relationship. Since trust has a twofold aspect—trust and trustworthiness—it’s dynamic. Relationships flourish when this dynamism becomes balanced and strengthened by trust.
Finally, everything boils down to the strength of your well-being. We all live to be happy, safe and secure, and peaceful. The strength of your everyday peace could serve as your litmus test. Take inventory of all we addressed: your physical body, attitude, your DNA self-healing and your values. How do you feel about each? How does your Life spin around them?
Though all this may take some time to determine, your ultimate goal should point to a peaceful state of being. And, it is the strength of living that every day state of peace, which best determines how you handle the many aspects of strength.
Peace and Health,
