Follow Rafiki!!!...He know the way

Here is a quick note before I hit the road for our basketball game today…

For some reason I was sitting here thinking about the movie the Lion King. I haven’t seen this movie in a long time. I was thinking about one part in this movie in particular…it was the part when Simba was following Rafiki through the jungle and they stopped running when they came up to this pond. Now Simba was in search of finding who he really was. Rafiki told him to look in the pond. The first time he looked, all he saw was a reflection of his-self. Rafiki said “No! Look harder…” This time he saw a reflection of his father, who was King before he died.

Proverbs 27:19
As in water face answereth to face, So the heat of a man to man.

Now this basically states that the condition of a man’s heart indicates his true character, like a reflection of one’s face in a pool of water. In the Lion King, Simba had run away from being king, when in fact deep down inside he knew he what he really needed to do.

This relates to our daily lives because there are so many people running away from who they really are, or what there purpose is in this life. Next time you look in the mirror (I will do the same)..ask yourself, do people know who you really are? Or a better question…do YOU know who you really are?

Peace and Blessings!!!

People (myself included) must hold themselves to some type of standard. At the same time, one must develop a goal(s) in which he or she expects to someday attain. Ideally, we would hope that this goal leads to a path in search of one's destiny or purpose in life. Individuals must also understand that the essence in finding oneself is knowing that the process is a journey, marathon, but by no means a sprint! It's a gradual process that takes a lifetime!!! We can only work to better ourselves which is why my homie Kanye eloquently says, "Our work is never done." Keep doing the ya thing kid! I hope these people learn something.
