“The greatest enemy has always been the same. His name is ignorance and the greatest mistake of all is the mistaken belief that we can ever receive more than we truly earn. Sooner or later there will be an accounting.” From Lead the Field by Earl Nightingale.
Our ignorance of self ensures that our work products will never reflect our true greatness, but it will determine our experience in the world. It is possible to succeed materially without overcoming our resistance to self-realization but the winds of the universe will never be at our back in helping to access our true genius. Knowledge is power. Self-knowledge is power beyond measure. It liberates the genius within us, illuminates our path and floods our spirit with inner knowledge and power that we sensed was there all along but could never fully embrace. In short, it invites us to know our own truth and become artists translating our truth for the benefit of the world.
