Enjoy your exclusive excerpt:
I stood at my grandmother's funeral in 2006 and realized with shock that I was actually related to about three hundred of the five hundred people at the funeral. My grandmother lived for 102 years. She had eight children, my dad being the last. There were more than forty grandchildren, eighty-five great grandchildren, at least twenty-five great, great grandkids, and two great, great, great grandchildren whom I knew of. Looking around, I began to feel dizzy. How could I be related to all these people? But more importantly, all these people were here because of one woman. If it weren’t for her, none of us would have been born. (Well perhaps our souls would have been here but not the distinct personalities that we know today.) Irene Serieux was actually responsible for a whole generation.
I am sure my grandmother never dreamed that she would create such a legacy. It was like a movie that opens with one woman, and by the end of the film, she has created a whole village of people, each with his or her own talents, dreams and ambitions. The energy of all these people contributes to the collective energy of the universe. My grandmother never realized it, but she was a force!
And so are you. You have no clue what your life’s purpose is, really. Aside from your immediate contributions to society and your desire to be your authentic self, your life means so much more than you may get a chance to discover in this lifetime. Your life is connected to those who came before you and those who will follow. You are not only creating a life for yourself now, you are a source of influence far greater than you can imagine. You are creating a legacy that future generations will want to know about, talk about, learn from, and eventually embrace.
You know, some people leave their mark on the world, but there are those who actually change it. I am not sure what my grandmother’s individual mark was, but with three hundred imprints (and counting), it’s easy to see how one person can change the world!
Life is short…you are a connecting dot from one life to another. It is important that you understand that. Make this loop count!
