A Super Hero Or A Super Human

March 25, 2014

A Super Hero wears his costume on the outside to hide his true identity.  A Super Human uses his outer costume to reveal his true identity.

A human may wear his outer, meaning his physical body, to project to the world that which his emotional makeup tells him the world wants to see.  A human may also try to change his outer to please.  A human may wear his outer to conceal from the world who he truly is.

A Super Human allows his inner to shine through his outer, to give the world that which he was created to give, that which we all need from him.  He was given the attributes, or perceived flaws, and the uniqueness of his outer/costume to accomplish his mission.  He uses the outer to express his inner, not to hide it.  His inner and outer become one.  When they do, he has found true happiness and we all benefit.

The director of a play or movie chooses an actor to play a certain role, not just based on acting ability, but one whose physical appearance the audience will associate with the character of the character.  Our director/our creator chose our physical for us.  It was chosen and given to us so that we could play our role, on this stage that we call our world.  It was chosen and given to us because when used properly, it is consistent with our purpose and mission.  It was given to us so that we may use it to bring a good to our audience. The good that we were uniquely given to give.

Whether you are tall or short, good-looking or maybe not, whatever hair or eye color, etc., etc., etc. The question you must ask yourself is how do I use this for the good?  How do I use this to express my true underlying character?

When you merge the inner and outer, you will be you, through and through!

    Inspiring us to aspire! My default negative “me” will tell me I can’t be super. If I take a big breath and get grounded in reality, I realize I can choose. One of my favorite parts of being human is free will. I can choose to be depressed, or just slog on, OR I can join you and choose to be Super Human today! Thanks for the inspiration!
