2 In In the Stillness

Day 31: Play Your Part.

This month has been an extensive journey for me. I hope that as you’ve read along in this series, you have come to feel an increase of peace in your heart. Maybe you’ve had a spark of an idea come to your mind, or an impression to add some peaceful ritual to your daily life. I hope you have gained some insight into who you are and how you personally experience true peace. From here, I encourage you to continue the quest for peace and write down additional insights in your journal. As you seek, you shall surely find.

Today I want to leave you with one final thought at the conclusion of this series.

Be your very best self!!

I hope you know that you don’t have to be someone else to be happy or full of peace. You just have to be the very best version of YOU that there is.

You are amazing. You have sparks of divinity within you. You were sent to this earth to accomplish a specific mission that no one else could ever do.

Your job as you rise each morning is to “be who you really are and do what you really love.” (to borrow a phrase from Bernadette Logue.)

I love the song that plays at the end of the new film, “Meet the Mormons,” (which I HIGHLY recommend). It’s called “Glorious” and sung by David Archuleta. I have loved and poured over this song for several years (performed by Russ Dixon). The words and melody are so powerful and poignant.

Click on this link and listen to this song if you haven’t already. You will be changed:

There are times when you might feel aimless
You can’t see the places where you belong
But you will find that there is a purpose
It’s been there within you all along and when you’re near it
You can almost hear it.

It’s like a symphony just keep listening
And pretty soon you’ll start to figure out your part
Everyone plays a piece and there are melodies
In each one of us, oh, it’s glorious

You will know how to let it ring out as you discover who you are
Others around you will start to wake up
To the sounds that are in their hearts
It’s so amazing, what we’re all creating

It’s like a symphony just keep listening
And pretty soon you’ll start to figure out your part
Everyone plays a piece and there are melodies
In each one of us, oh, it’s glorious

And as you feel the notes build
You will see

It’s like a symphony just keep listening
And pretty soon you’ll start to figure out your part
Everyone plays a piece and there are melodies
In each one of us, oh, it’s glorious

What part will you play? What melody lives within you that you need to let shine forth? Who were you sent to this earth to be?

“What E’er Thou Art, Act Well Thy Part.”

As you live each day as your highest, truest self, I can promise that peace will be yours to keep forever.
