We are here to be ourselves

I have been reading Living an Examined Life: Wisdom for the Second Half of the Journey by James Hollis, PhD. The author is a Jungian analyst and executive director of the Jung Society of Washington, DC.  I should begin with the first chapters, but today I am reflecting on Chapter 10 whose title is "What Gift Have You Been Withholding from the World? He tells us that we are here to be ourselves. Our gift to the world is our uniqueness. "Each of us has something to bring to the mosaic of time that is unfolding in and through us whether we are aware or not."

God loves each of us for our uniqueness. No two people are exactly alike. Let us learn to praise God for the gifts He has given each of us and thank Him for creating us just as we are!
