I draw on the essence of who I am.
Everyone I know draws on the essence of who they are.
Everyone I don’t even know, all over the planet, draws on the essence of who they are.
The beginnings of character, taught and exemplified to us when we are small, are what grow within us.
We measure ourselves against those standards.
We see how others are expressing them, or sometimes, not expressing them, and we look at ourselves again.
We continually cultivate the higher essence.
We seek to uplift.
We look for ways to serve.
We notice the “small” judgements we make.
We become aware of them and work to redirect, appreciate and become generous in our assessments.
What we hold within about anyone else becomes what we see in ourselves.
So we uplift and purify our own judgements, in order to uplift and purify our own essence.
Then, out of that great reservoir, we let our essence create an inspiring life.
