The telling and hearing of stories is a bonding ritual that breaks through illusions of separateness and activates a deep sense of our collective interdependence. – Annette Simmons
Kahlil Gibran says that next to hunger and thirst, our most basic human need is storytelling.
Everyday, we are telling ourselves stories in our minds. These ongoing stories, whether they are true or not, make us who we are today and will dictate who our children’s children will be in the future. These stories are being passed on, simply by the way we think, live and act.
“Perhaps it is how we are made; perhaps words of truth reach us best through the heart, and stories and songs are the language of the heart.” Stephen Lawhead
We are building our world and our life out of these stories.
So the question is, “What story are you telling yourself everyday?”
“Is the story you are telling yourself, the truth?”
“How is this story impacting your life and those around you?”
“Would you be willing to change the story in order to create the life you want?”
When our stories are based upon truth and our soul purpose, we will ignite the same truth and story within others and it will move them and drive them in a direction they never thought possible. Who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words, because of your story.
We each have a unique story to express to the world. Each story is as important as the next, and each story has a message for us to learn from.
