Within You Lies All You Need


Within is the person we really are. Within lies our very existence. And only from within can we make it happen. This is where our very all subsists. Within you is the ability, the "what it takes" to make it all happen for you, just the way you want it. WITHIN! WITHIN!! WITHIN!!! Oh what a place! This is the only place that will ever always and fully be yours. The only domain where you are king indeed. Not even the future or the past holds a stake high enough to be compared to that within you. The renowned jurist, Oliver Wendell Homes couldn't have said it better when he remarked, "What lies ahead of us and what lies behind us are nothing compared to what LIES WITHIN US". The past haven gone and the future waiting beyond, you are left with but one great option - That which is within you. Your very bird in hand. I want you to realize that your best bet is in all that you are potentially endowed with within, though it may not appear, as it ought to be at present.

You cannot afford to plan on the past cos it's gone. It is in the tomb. Neither can you build on the future because it is pending in the womb. But you can work on what you've got within you at present. You can if you choose to. Because your endowments within is all you've got. This, you will always have. So, take to Theodore Roosevelt's advise, "Do what you can, with what you have (within), where you are".

Within you is your true story untold. The best person to tell that story is you. And that can only be when you decide and indeed begin to blow your own trumpet. You are your best autobiographer because only you are fully aware of all the good things within you. Take a thoughtful look at yourself. Look inwards and be amazed at the Creator's generosity in lodging inside you those awesome deposits that make for nothing short of success, victory and achievement. Philo Farnsworth was a little peasant farm boy who later became an orphan -at least that was all there appeared to be. But how wrong this turned out to be for within him - all along - existed Farnsworth the electronic TV inventor.

Truly, within you lies the key to your destiny, I dare say. Simply put; WITHIN YOU IS IT!" Within you is contained all the possibilities you could ever hope for in life. So, why exist and die a mirage when there is actual reality inside of you. To die a failure -apart from doing one's self a gross disservice- is to do injustice to God's thoughtful investment in one. I remember the story of the stone that was rejected by a sculptor, Antonio as no good for any sculpting in medieval Italy. Agreed it was an awkwardly shaped piece of marble with no form of goodly appearance. But another Sculptor came - who understood the WITHIN CONCEPT- picked the rejected block and extracted one of the greatest masterpiece `of all times -The Statue Of David. When asked how he performed the feat, the fellow simply responded; "I learned very early in life to see things primarily from within. My job is to 'take away' by unveiling the reality present within. I start working form inside out." That fellow was Michelangelo of Caprice, one of the greatest artists to don the earth's surface.

There actually is something worth bringing out from inside you. Maybe you've never considered what's within you as worth anything to bring out. Perhaps that's the reason you're so far from really succeeding and achieving your goals or dreams. Now begin to place value on that which is within you. Then let's have a proper and adequate showcase of the actual person you are. For within you is all you could ever ask for. So let's have you, the REAL you from WITHIN come out.

By the way, have you ever given thought to what the greatest tragedy in life could be? Well, T. L. Osborn says, "It is for people (like you and I) to live and die and never come out of themselves - to never realize the possibilities hidden WITHIN themselves". This is the greatest of all tragedies in life.
