Bathe in Someone Else’s Greatness
When was the last time you were in the presence of some serious greatness? That you were able to bathe in someone else’s greatness. I mean someone who makes you practically weep they are so damn good. Today I am sharing why you might want to get yourself there… quickly.
Last week I had the opportunity to see what has become one of my all time favorite bands, Barnaby Bright. They happen to be pals as well, so it makes it double special.
Becky and Nathan Bliss are a gorgeous husband and wife singer songwriting duo, who no doubt are a hop skip and a jump away from gracing you with their presence on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. When you see them, remember that you heard it here.
(Side note, are you as happy as I am going to bed these days knowing Jimmy Fallon will laugh you to sleep? Just. So. Good.)
Aside from Becky’s angelic and powerful voice and Nathan’s top-notch guitar skills, the pair takes the stage with such captivating presence and power; you can’t not be pulled into their vortex.
Every note, every sound is sweet perfection.
To put it simply, they are living in their greatness.
And here is where I am going to sound really selfish and then give you a tip.
Watching and witnessing them, elevated me and helped me tap into my own potential. It lifted me out of what has felt like the long winter blues. I was not just transported because of the music, better yet, I was transformed.
When someone is at the top of their game, whether it is singing, acting, speaking, teaching, writing or telling jokes, don’t pass up the opportunity to be in the same space to witness it.
I beg of you.
Go. Be in the presence of magnificence.
The vibration of these places is elevated.
There is a quickening of clarity.
There is a force field of love.
These rooms are filled with transparency and grace.
It is likely where God is twinkling.
It is often where Angels are playing.
You will feel it and better yet, it WILL all rub off on you.
You will be bathed in the light that emanates from that person’s skin. And you will feel BETTER.
And it’s not because they are better than you, or special, or a guru. Hardly.
It is simply because when they are doing what they are simply so gifted at, it’s almost like the sea parts.
They step into an ease that is palpable, while stepping out of all the B.S. mental stuff that often weighs us down day to day.
This is not to say they won’t be greeted by their own doubt and fear when they step off the stage or out of the room, oh contraire, they are mere living mortals like you and I.
But for those few moments or hours where they are doing what they are so incredibly gifted at, they are elevated to a godly status.
Being a bystander of this splendor on a regular basis provides long-term benefits.
It gives you something to aspire to, dream about, remember and maybe even emulate in your own unique way.
It is in rooms like these that you will get your best ideas, let go of past hurts and be filled with overwhelming love.
So I ask you, when was the last time you were in the presence of greatness?
Is there a person, teacher or artist who you know just HAS IT? Who lifts you up? Who lights you up? LEAVE A COMMENT BELOW and let me know.
It could be anyone from Beyonce to Amma to your local yoga teacher who just has a gift.
I say by all means, seek them out. Humble yourself. Get up in there. Become a little bit of a groupie. It’s ok. You will still be cool.
Your cells will be transformed and your heart opened.
And that is the coolest sip of Kool-aid any of us could drink.
Here’s to all the magnificent sparkling greatness out there, just waiting for us to drink it in.
