“Destruction is a form of creation.”
That quote is from the 1954 short story titled The Destructors, written by Graham Greene. The idea is that through the process of being destroyed we can find our true self and re-create our being.
The year 2014 is only a few weeks away. The New Year is often seen as a clean slate and a time to start or break new habits. Personal growth and development should always be a habit one should try to improve.
2014 will be the challenge of finding Your Devine Destinee. The Your Devine Destinee challenge was created by this author, Destinee Devina. The challenge is to become the best possible version of you. By using Maslow’s hierarchy of needs this process will guide you to reach nirvana.
Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is often depicted as a pyramid. At the base of the pyramid there are the essential needs of survival, as one travels up the pyramid it becomes more complex needs. Unless the foundation is solid and the needs are met, the pyramid will collapse.
This process of self-actualization will be hard, there may be some blood and tears and you may feel like you’re being torn apart. It’s best to keep in mind that sometimes we need to be torn apart to see what we are made of.
It’s so easy to look at your neighbor and point out everything he or she is doing wrong but remember the bible verse of Matthew 7:3-5 3“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” Other religious and spiritual leaders have a strong feeling towards looking within before making a change. It’s so easy to blame society but we are society. It’s so easy to blame your past but your past cannot define you. Holding on to anger is not going to help you, it's like holding on to a hot stone expecting the other person to get burned. These are the themes we will be addressing the most because people generally have the most difficulty with them.
2014 will be your year. Every week there will be an article posted about the steps you need to take in order to reach Your Devine Destinee. This challenge will be life changing and is only for the strong willed that are ready. To those who are willing to participate, I’m sending you good vibes, prayers and wishes.
