“The talents each of us have are literally God given, and they are given to be ex¬pressed. Failure to express them results in great discomfort in our physical bodies. The talents want out. Holding them in requires effort and is a major way we resist the natural order of the Universe. We hold them in at our peril and at great cost to our spiritual well-being. Just because our society often discourages the free expression of our individual talents does not mean that they have no value to us or even to society. In fact, the opposite is true.
The Universe, in its infinite wisdom, does not create talents without the corresponding need in others to experience the expression of these talents. If a musician has the inspiration to express in a totally new musical form, there are always people who will enjoy hearing music presented in that way. In truth, each of us is a Beethoven, DaVinci or DiMaggio in the area of our talent. We are each created to be a superstar. It is for each of us to locate the talent and then express it. As we express it, we learn its value in creating a life of pleasure, abundance and joy.”
Arnold Patent, in “You Can Have It All”
