Happy Birthday Blair!
Wow! Fifty Years of being on this marvelous planet. Fifty years is a long time, a very long time. Turning 50 has wonderful advantages. You are alive and well at the midpoint. Your position is one that not many are able to grasp. They are too consumed with the number 50 and not completely understanding the significance of what the number truly represents. The number fifty is the beginning of the end of relying on the senses. It is the beginning of fully grasping the next sense that waits. 50 allows you to look back in awe and appreciation and yet feel and see the glow of what lies ahead in all its glory.
You were born with 5 senses: Hearing, Seeing, Touching, Tasting and Smell. Those five senses have served you well as you have moved through the first 50 years. However, because your life is eternal; you will now begin to move beyond those five senses and begin to appreciate what Jesus stated many moons ago and that is “Blessed is he who can see without signs.” My interpretation of that is the following: Blessed is he who can move beyond the five senses and begin to interpret the next sense which is “the quiet voice within that is unseen and offers no signs.” It is the voice that has been with you since you took your first breath. It is the voice that requires no hearing, seeing, touching, tasting or smelling. It is the voice where all begins and where all ends. It is the voice that will be with you forever. It is the voice that hears centuries ahead and the voice that holds the whispers of the past. It is the voice that is in union with the Creator.
That voice is your intuition. The five senses are always needed. They make us see, feel, taste, hear and smell our being. They have been instrumental up to this point. However, you must now rely more heavily on YOUR VOICE. It is so important to really HEAR YOUR VOICE. In the midst of any storm or even as the rays of the sun shine mightily, it is your voice that must now become the focus of your soul. The voice is the “director” of your soul. Listen very closely as sometimes the five senses can be simply your “ego” speaking and not your true voice. Always listen carefully! We usually take the incorrect path of thought or action when we go against the voice. When you were a child you used only your senses, now that you are a man, you will speak more from the voice.
Happy Birthday my friend! I am so very proud of what you have become. I’m not speaking of your career; I speak of what you have become as a man. As I have stated to you time and again, “actions will pass from day to night; however, the character of a man will emit a smell that will last centuries.” Your character has the most beautiful fragrance!!! Your children’s children will know of your aroma and your fragrance will linger for centuries. That is why I am so proud of you!
Happy 50th Birthday!!!
Until the next time,
