"All good things come to those who wait." ... old English proverb, circa 1509

1) "All good things come to those to whom all good things come."
2) "Don't wait for all good things to come."
3) "All good things come to those who create all good things have come."
... Laurence Platt, circa 2009



You're beyond compare. You're scintillating. You're ineffable. You're beyond language. You're extraordinary, remarkable, impeccable, immaculate, and by the way you're brilliant too. I'd also add divine  but given our propensity to add meaning where none is required therefore bringing on confusion and unnecessary innuendo, I won't.

I'm not referring to your personality, as charismatic as it is. I'm not referring to your body, as gorgeous, muscular, svelte, and just plain sexy  as it is. I'm not alluding to what you do in the world, as successful as you've become. Neither am I drawing a bead on the things you say, although God knows  I could talk with you until the sun comes up and beyond and still want more.

And as for who you think  you are or consider yourself to be, that's not it either. Neither am I touching on who or what you'd like to become. Similarly, I'm not isolating who or what you want to be known for. Indeed there may be something here you've considered ie when they speak about you after you're gone (and they will), what would you want them to be saying about you?

Whatever it may be, I don't care. Really I don't. It makes no difference to me. When you and I consider what we'd like to bequeath to our heirs or to the world at large ie what we'd like our legacy  to be ... well, whatever it is or may be for you, that's not what I'm referring to either.

I'm referring to who you really are. And even as I say that, I have to make a very precise, rigorous distinction because if I don't, you'll miss what I'm bringing into focus under the microscope.

What I'm referring to, what I'm distinguishing, what I'm speaking about as "beyond compare, scintillating, ineffable, beyond language, extraordinary, remarkable, impeccable, immaculate, brilliant, and divine"  (Ooops! I shouldn't say it ...) is who you really are as an experience  like a possibility for you  - in other words, as who you experience yourself to be.

I'm not expressing my opinion  of what I think of you. I'm not saying how I judge  your deeds. I'm not implying I regard you highly  as a human being - neither am I implying I don't. In fact, if I could, I'd say what I'm saying here, and then I'd disappear entirely  because if you associate what I'm saying about you with me, you'll miss my point entirely.

It's who you really are as an experience for yourself about which I'm speaking. You may not get it immediately because you're a human being with barriers aka "stuff"  in the way between you and full Self experience and full Self expression. If so, please listen what I'm saying as a reference to an experience for you of yourself like a possibility.

You're beyond compare, scintillating, ineffable, beyond language, extraordinary, remarkable, impeccable, immaculate, brilliant, and divine.

(There! I said it.)
