Card of the Month:
"I am more than I think I am."
A final lesson I will take away from the fable of Pink
from Pinkton is one emphasizing possibility. As the famous Napoleon Hill book from the 1920s reminds us, “Think and Grow Rich.”
After all, that’s exactly what Pink did.
At the start of his relationship with
Petunia, Pink was somewhat willful and self centered. Bored that Petunia could be so easily counted on to be there for him, he pulled back from the relationship, ultimately costing him Petunia’s love. Mid way through, Pink knew deep down that in fact he had been the one who was wrong.
After making the quest up Pinkton Peak as a seeker of sky
God’s advice, he was able to own his mistake and to know in his heart that in reality it was he who had outgrown Petunia. He was able to let go of the relationship and to leave Pinkton Peak excited about the prospects that lay ahead.
What an optimistic outlook. Ultemately it was Pink’s
sense, consciously or not, of the promise and possibility of new things out there that drove him forward, also giving him the courage to let go of the old.
When we sense, as Pink did, “I am more than I think I
am”doesn’t that make you want to search for your best self and get it out into the world? Doesn’t it motivate you to do more than you think you could?
So, as needed, in what ways this week have you thought about expanding the pool of available options? How have you developed your sense of self worth? How have you confronted something you weren’t sure you could do, feeling surprisingly good after the effort?
Willful young Pink from Pinkton highlights for us this wonderful intuition that expanding possibilities are out there to be explored and enjoyed.
