We all are of royal blood. We are children of a King and Queen and we have been sent into a world where everyone tells us that we are nothing special. And that staying locked up in the tower (of the world) will be safest. That we should not go out into the kingdom to find out who we are.
I believe that Satan does everything in his power to distract us from finally finding that royal flag and discovering our true identity. We all come from a royal line. We all have the potential of becoming kings and queens, gods and goddesses. But there is always that evil "caretaker" who tries to keep us in a tower away from anything that will remind us of our royal birth.
What keeps you locked up in a tower? And what has allowed you to come out of your tower and actually remember who you are? What reminds you of your heavenly self? Do you really believe that you are royal? What bogs you down? What makes you feel destined for greatness?
Here are a few things/quotes that make me feel destined for greatness:
- C.S. Lewis' entire chapter called "Hope" in Mere Christianity.
- "You were born to Lead, You were Born for Glory" - a talk by Sheri Dew
- My patriarchal blessing
- Every time I go to the temple
- Amazingly beautiful music like the BYU singers concert this weekend!
I'd love to hear what you would say.
"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you into something else is the greatest accomplishment" - Ralph Waldo Emerson
