Something Beautiful

 It seems like everywhere we turn there’s someone trying to sell salvation: a talk show host who wants to change who we are in an instant, creams, drinks, shampoos and clothes that promise miracles, a guru with a way to banish all our troublesSome of them can’t imagine what it’s like to be you.  Many of them try to exorcise their own demons by trying to cast out yours. A few are really trying to do their “civic” duty by youMost offer short term band-aids over a wound they can’t possible hope to understand. Others are trying to sell you something they couldn’t stand to embody themselves. The worst ones just want to take advantage of your personal strife for their own gain.  

Unfortunately, the real question isn’t: “Which one will work for you?” or even: “Who has the best intentions?”. It’s a property rights issue: “Is salvation really theirs to give?”   

Everyone was created for something beautiful .  No matter where you were born or to whom, your life is heading somewhere, regardless of what happens on the way you can do something incredible with the journey.  We are each made  and empowered with the free will to decide what footprints we leave behind.  Each person contributes to society as a whole and, as our society becomes increasingly global, our choices are growing to have a wider, broader impact. With radio, television, satellites and the internet connecting people hundreds of thousands of miles apart one person can change the world by his or her actions or inaction.

Is salvation theirs to give? In a world where little else is certain, the one thing we can each be positive about is that salvation is ours to create, and inasmuch, ours to accept.  It can’t be force fed to us through commercial endeavors, empty political promises, school books or even divinely inspired text.  It’s something we embody when we choose to live our lives to the fullest.  It’s something we personify when, instead of taking what we’re given, like Oliver Twist we get up and ask for ‘…s’more’. It’s symbolized not by pretty words, but by choosing in the here and now to do something beautiful with the life you’ve been given. 

Fallen

In a murky world full of sinister darkness and fallen angels, we rose above the shadowy clouds and our wings found light.  Now many would think to run towards it, bathing in the radiant illumination of souls redeemed, but not we three, anymore than all the others who had risen before only to fail to understand the beauty of joy so destroyed were their souls by abuse.  Buoyant with the knowledge that there was a path not taken but open to all, we returned to the treachery of our sinister pasts over and over again in our minds.

Into our murky actions and sordid lives we sank, re-immersing ourselves in misery so thick that we thought we might drown, but all was not lost.

In times that were often bleak for those struggling to find out who they were and etch a place in this world, we’d found friendship.   Amongst the ashes of our lives, we’d found hope.  Engulfed by fear, we faced overwhelming odds and beat the table. 

                       We were not crushed. 

                                           We were not overcome. 

We did not capitulate to what the world had destined for us.  We rose above and took our lives back. Now we want to shine a beacon for those who came before but were left behind, those who will inevitably come after. 

Now, maybe you’re visiting this page because you recognize yourself in our story.  Maybe you heard of it by word of mouth, and were curious to see what we’re about.  Maybe you’re looking for help and didn’t know where else to turn.  Maybe you’re looking for answers that you feel you just may find here. No matter, you’ve come to the right place. 

                       This is where uncertainty meets destiny…      

            This is where every action you take counts… 

It’s the crossroads where you decide what to make of your life.    

We know.   

We’ve been there and survived. 

Now it’s your turn, but what happens next?  Where does ambiguity turned into confidence in the future lead, when the only thing you’ve ever been able to trust in is doubt?
