Believe in your amazing.

Between life and death, there is a space called nothingness. It has no beginning and no end, and it does not have sound or form. It is invisible but it is still exists. That nothingness is complete within itself and is infinite in all directions. That nothingness is the infinity between clinical death and biological death, the infinity between the demise of the body and the demise of the soul. 

That nothingness is the ultimate reality where the true Self reaches a state of complete tranquility. There is no "I" in that space. The "I" becomes nothing and everything and everyone cease to exist, and yet everything and everyone persist in that space.

Not many experience this nothingness (and return to tell the tale), and for those who do, that nothingness is the beginning of the long journey of either complete transformation or complete giving up, of either accepting to settle or wanting to seek the amazing. The reality is that God puts people through only what they are capable of going through, so the obvious choice would be to seek the amazing. To wish to become extraordinary, to accept that they were not meant to settle or to remain ordinary. It is indeed a life wasted for those who give up, for they are not just giving up on themselves but on how He created them in this life. Indeed what a tragedy it is to be a bird in a gilded cage!

Those who dream to be more than who they are, keep running into several such physical, emotional, and spiritual nothingness throughout their lifetime. It is a test of their faith in the possibility of the extraordinary, of whether they are sure they want to break open their cage and fly and not return.

We are always capable of a lot more than we think we are. We are all meant to be extraordinary. We are all capable of living our dreams and also sharing infinite love and kindness with the world around us. We are capable of breaking away from pain and fear and being free from the illusion of life. All we have to do is persist and believe in our own amazing, not the amazing of someone else.
