In a world that often pressures us to conform, gifted individuals must recognize and wholeheartedly embrace their unique abilities.
As the philosopher J. Krishnamurti wisely observed: “We all want to show off. The rich man in his expensive car, the girl who makes herself more beautiful, the boy who tries to be very smart – they all want to show that they have something. It is a strange world, is it not? You see, a lily or a rose never pretends, and its beauty is that it is what it is.”
Similar to the natural beauty of a lily or a rose, our true strengths, giftedness, and authenticity shine brightest when expressed without pretense.
🌹 To defy societal norms and the inner programs imposed by society or genes, gifted individuals require understanding and support.
💎 Giftedness manifests in many forms – from creativity and intelligence to empathy and leadership. Find your unique gift, and you’ll uncover your authentic life path.
🌟 By acknowledging and nurturing our inner gifts, we unlock our boundless potential.
Let’s not just encourage but celebrate the gifted individuals in our lives – our colleagues, friends, and family. We must wholeheartedly embrace their distinctive qualities, unconventional ideas, sensitivities, somatic expressions, imaginations, and vital energy.
Let’s avoid confining them to a box they’ll never fit into.
Together, we can foster a world that treasures authenticity and values every individual’s diverse talents.
In my professional experience, I have worked with numerous gifted individuals, both children, and adults, who, due to dysfunctional family environments, inadequate educational systems, and a rigid, judgmental society, reached a point of surrender. They just gave up.
We lost so many gifted individuals due to a lack of attention to what is one of the most treasured parts of the soul.
But, I have observed that gifted individuals can, with remarkable capacity, rebound swiftly, gaining profound insights and heightened self-awareness in the process. They tend to grasp the boundaries within themselves and are adept at mending their relationships effectively. When they experience acceptance, support, and a sense of safety, they can tap into the full power of their giftedness. Their inner genius, eagerly waiting to manifest through their thoughts, voice, hands, body, energy, and more, becomes a force to be reckoned with.
They transform through the power of their inborn giftedness.
