The Greatness Within Everyone

Everyone has a Greatness inside themselves.  Each and every person has an inner Greatness, that can be seen with the trained (or Awakened) eye.  I finally realized this through going through enough hard times, that I realized that everyone has an inner Greatness that helps us get through those hard times.  Angel Carol by Shauna Nourha

For instance, as we go throughout the day, we really have no idea what kind of Greatness it has taken for each person we encounter to get up in the morning and to keep going.  We are rarely aware of all the inner obstacles with which each person struggles, often daily, such as the self-defeating thoughts that might have gotten planted in their heads through racism, sexism, the put-downs that can go along with being “poor” or not as intelligent as many others.

For all of us, being human requires determination and other forms of Greatness in order to overcome our inner and outer obstacles in life.  Even if our own achievements may seem small compared to the achievements of others, no one else knows what we have overcome in life, and in the negative self-talk that gets planted in our heads, often in childhood, in order to be where we are today.  No one else knows what inner Greatness anyone else has required in order to be who they are and to achieve what they have achieved.

In fact, the more difficult our circumstances, such as poverty, discrimination, trauma, dysfunctional family, and so on, the more inner Greatness we may need in order to get up and keep going in the morning, and to keep contributing to the greater goodness of life.  If you think about it, we have to find more inner strength to serve someone else who has more privilege than we do, especially if our role is simple service, such as serving food, fixing cars, opening doors or carrying luggage.  The strength to deal with the inequities of life and yet to graciously work for someone else’s life to be even better requires an inner Greatness that the person who is being served doesn’t even have to try to achieve.  Servants often have more inner Greatness than those they serve.

This is part of the reason why Jesus taught:  “Whoever would be great among you, they  must be your servant.”  This is also one of the many reasons why Jesus told us not to judge others.  None of us can see, until fully Awakened, the Greatness that often lies hidden with other human beings.

And yet, each of us can cultivate our inner Greatness.  One way to do that is simply to serve others with expectation of benefit or reward, and with no strings attached.

With every breath we choose to take, the Greatness within us comes alive. With every choice we make to overcome our challenges, The Greatness within us wins.

Inside each and every one of us resides this Inner Greatness.  This Greatness strengthens us to overcome sadness, loss, discouragement, fear, anxiety, grief, loneliness, failure, shame, and depression.

We need to find that Greatness within, including the sheer DESIRE to heal all sadness, anxiety, fear, depression, loneliness, and shame.  That DESIRE to heal and no longer to feel those negative feelings is the foundation of our inner Greatness.  Recognizing that this desire is part of our own inner Greatness, we can come to understand that Life offers us this inner Greatness as part of the very plan and nature of Life.

The power of that Greatness to heal and to calm our fears comes from Love.  Love is the very essence of Life, and Love is interwoven into the fabric of our inner Greatness.  The driver of that powerful love within us is the courage to love no matter what.  That Greatness and that Love is within us all.  That Greatness is who we really are.

We are that Greatness whether we feel like it or not.  We are that Greatness even when no one else can see it.  We are that Greatness when no one else is watching.

No matter whatever else we do or say or think, deep underneath it all, that Greatness remains.  As hidden as it may sometimes seem, that Greatness is always who we really are.  Even if we think our Greatness has atrophied, because it is Greatness, it never withers, never atrophies, and never dies.  Our Greatness simply awaits us, and when we are ready, it is revealed, sometimes simply, sometimes grandly.

True Greatness never requires grandeur for itself to be revealed.  True Greatness is even greater when it is revealed humbly, and without fanfare.  Fanfare never adds to true Greatness.  True Greatness is our Source.  True Greatness is our destiny, in this life, or the next.

Love and Light,

Carol “Anandi”

About selfrealizationtherapy

I am a healer, life coach, author, and spiritual teacher. While I am ordained in the Christian tradition, I have also studied Eastern spiritual disciplines and practices, including Raja Yoga Meditation; Intuitive Coaching; Reiki; Falun Gong; and other forms of energy healing for both people and animals. I am available for distance healing and spiritual coaching via phone, Skype, WhatsApp, or Facetime; please email me at: carol.dodson.richardson@gmail.com to schedule a session. My goal is to assist you in connecting with your Higher Self to find fulfillment, peace, health, and happiness in life. I typically work with people for about six weeks, and then they either take classes with me and advance more, or simply go their happy way. While I cannot guarantee results, many clients find that in a few short weeks, more is accomplished than could be with years of traditional talk therapy. Born on the equator in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, I grew up moving back-and-forth between Africa and the United States my whole childhood and youth. We lived in three different countries in Africa, and three different states in the USA. I now live in Maryland, close to Washington, DC. I was widowed at the age of 28 when my 34-year-old husband died suddenly of a cerebral aneurysm that hemorrhaged, leaving me with an infant and a toddler. This crisis led me to believe that God loves us even when "bad" things happen, and also led me to pursue spirituality and become a minister. In 1996, thanks to "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramhansa Yogananda, and a meditation class called Raja Yoga, I started on an Eastern spiritual path, a journey which included becoming a healer and a mystic. On Thursday, May 27, 2010, I experienced what I call an Enlightenment Vision, in which I ascended and was blessed by Ascended Masters of many faiths: Master Lao Tzu, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda, High Priest Melchizedek, Lady Kwan Yin, Master Usui, and then by the Seven Archangels of the Seven Rays. After this vision, the teachings in Higher Consciousness began. Apparently, my crown chakra was opened, and direct contact with the Ascended Masters has been possible ever since. My message to everyone is: this is possible for you to achieve as well, although getting there is not necessarily quick or easy. With a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Center at Houston, and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Texas Christian University, I perceive a unity in my readings in Eastern religions and in Biblical studies. As a result, I believe the original message of Jesus Christ was and is a call to Self-Realization, which may also be called following The Way (a term used in the book of Acts by very early "Christians," although they did not call themselves "Christians;" they called themselves Followers of the Way. The Way, or the Tao consists of the practice of peace and love in every moment, honoring the Divine Presence within ourselves as well as within others. The Way of early Christianity was a spiritual practice which similarly focused not on the material world, but on the practice of Divine Presence within the earthly realm. When we practice The Way, or The Tao, we become one with Divine Peace, Love, and even bliss. When we attain this, we experience the "Kingdom of God" or Reign of God, within ourselves, Nirvana or possibly Samadhi. Achieving this Way within each of ourselves is the only way we will be able to usher in the Reign of Divine presence among us all here on earth. The ultimate goal of The Way, and of Self-Realization, is the attainment of unity with the Divine Consciousness, or Buddha-Consciousness or Christ-Consciousness, within, and beyond our normal mortal mind. This Unity-Consciousness is eternal, but begins in the here and now. May it be so.
