Whose Mission Is Important?

We live in a society where you are “worthy” if you will have a diploma, a pile of documents or a large amount of money. A value that can be seen and experienced daily through the way we treat each other. I call it a false value…. Besides, do we have a mission? How important is that?

Why False Value?

Whose Mission Is Important?: Blue Eye

Most of us say that we are created in the image and likeness of a god, that we come from the same source and return when we leave this life. However, you may consider yourself better or worse than others. You think that you know more than others, and you are smarter than others. Your education is to look at the clothes, at work, at home, at the bank account. It is a false worth, and a hierarchy ruled by money and ego.

Is it difficult to see that we all are different beings carrying other life experiences and our perception? That we all have other beliefs, another religion, a different skin colour. We all are worthy in another form.…

Where Is Our Worth?

Whose Mission Is Important?: Money

The worth is in each of us. First of all, we all are born being worthy because we are all created the same. Then, we are valuable in what we put into “fighting” for the good of all. That is, what we do with pleasure, passion and offer to those around us.

We are all born naked, and when we leave this world, we do it without a job, without money, without anything material for which we have strived on this earth. The only fortune will be the traces left in everyone’s hearts because of the mission we all have in this life.  Each occupies a place in the lives of those around him. Directly or indirectly, everyone has a mission to “teach” something to those around them.

Each is the keystone for the others;”

A World With or Without You?

Whose Mission Is Important?: Globe

Could you imagine what the world would have been like without you? To think that you would not have been a part of the lives of those you love. In my opinion, it is like an element of a whole is missing, and then that whole would have had a completely different shape or size.

You can balance the beautiful moments and the ugly moments you went through. You will see that it every time, some people have entered your life for a short time, and you have had others for longer or for a lifetime. That’s because everyone has a mission in each other’s lives, as long as they need to be with them.

“You, man, are your brother’s helper.”

For example, think of an actor or a great singer. Each one got to where he is primarily because of his work, but we cannot deny that someone else came into his/ her life to “discover” him/her. That “someone” entered his life to guide him on the path he wanted to walk, to help him open the gates to achieve his dream. That dream was his mission in this world because he gave a state of joyfulness to many. 

At the same time, you can think that the process of filming a movie means so many people, costumes, screenwriters, image, sound, many details that make up a whole – the film. To exist, it needed all the people who contributed with their time and talent. You might think that in the absence of a category, that movie will not exist, it would not become a whole. A missing element in a whole deforms it, makes it seek its balance in another form, but it will never have it as it should be when all the parts are in place.

The Example of Nature

Whose Mission Is Important?: Flowers

Each flower beautifies the place where it is. It does so by height, colour, smell. Despite that, it doesn’t mean that only one or only a few are valuable. Each of them is worthy and has a role in a garden or a field. Each one is offering its dose of beauty and colour on this earth. The same, each tree gives its fruit or shade to everyone, wherever he is.

Likewise, you man, you can give to everyone, everything you know or can do, without thinking about who deserves and who does not. To do it without making a difference.

You Are a Jigsaw Puzzle

Whose Mission Is Important?: Jigsaw Puzzle

A puzzle is complete when all its parts are in place in their entirety. If one piece is missing or you put a block from another one, the whole thing is no longer what it should be. Moreover, little things make a big difference. We are all “little things” of our humanity, like puzzle pieces. We are different pieces in shape, size, colour but we have a place of our own in this life. Without your mission, the world becomes a puzzle with a missing piece.

With or without a diploma, you are important in someone’s life. You make him pass a test of life. Think of a chair with legs. It will not have balance if one of them is missing. 

A house does not stand if a wall crushes. Every construction needs all its elements equally because all of them have their mission to support its balance. By the absence of any part, it loses its balance, falls, collapses.

Whose Mission Is Important?

There is no balance where some take everything and many nothing. A nation cannot exist through those who put personal interests above the interests of many.

A country cannot be on its feet as long as we don’t put our shoulders for making things work.  And that doesn’t mean I’m better than you or you’re better than me. It means that everyone has the responsibility for what they know and can do for the good of all.

A pyramid exists due to the bottom base made it of the many who support it. When some seek to destroy it, they do with the base that supports the peak where they stay and consider themselves powerful and invincible.

Whose Mission Is Important?: You got this

Everyone has his mission in this world, and there are not small or large roles. No one and nothing should have the right to decide whether or not a person has an unworthy mission, because we each have our role for each other. Each one has its value in the existence of the whole that we call humanity, and each mission is considerable for building a balance of the world. We all have our worth mission and contribute to the worth mission of the others. 

I am made for a purpose. And it is worth expending everything that I have to find it, for I will waste everything that I have if I do not.
