Who do you think you are?

     It's been said there are only two types of people in this world.

Those two people are those who eat pies and those who bake pies.  Let me explain, those who eat pie believe there is only a limited amount of pie so they must take a larger slice of  pie.  Therefore taking away someone else's portion, consumers, so they will have enough.  Eaters are takers.  Bakers believe that there is enough pie for everyone as long as you bake a big enough pie.  Bakers are creators. 

     I believe that baking a bigger pie is what life is about.  If you believe in a Creator it would serve well to notice that new things are created daily.  In Spring you can see new life all around you.  Nothing is taken from anything to make more.  An acorn has in it all that it will ever need to become a great oak tree.  It will need nourishment but it has what it takes already inside of it.

Just as a seed has inside all that it will ever need to succeed and to become what it is purposed to be.  We have inside of us all that we will ever need to become who live our purpose.  You won't see an apple seed make an orange tree.  Nor will you see a watermelon seed make grapes hang on a vine.  The fruit is in the seed and the seed is in the fruit.  Nothing is taken away from an apple to make more apples. More creations are inside the apple.  We are the same, it doesn't take anything away from us to create more.  We are creators by nature and it is our destiny to create.  What is stored up inside of you that only you can bring into the world?
