So… Are you a work-in-progress?
Do you know your progress? As a human being, as a co-creator, as a brother, as a sister, as a citizen, whatever it maybe, how do you measure yourself? What allows you to feel you are making progress? William Julius Wilson says “But the person who scored well on an SAT will not necessarily be the best doctor or the best lawyer or the best businessman. These tests do not measure character, leadership, creativity, perseverance.” Quote from – brainyquote. It is in the nature of us to become complacent and accustomed to a pattern. This looses our focus on our progress.
Well, here goes it. You are moving on in life; day after day, moment after moment, knowing that your existence is in awareness. Awareness in how you feel and how your react, with people and life situations dictate your growth. This too applies to all. We are humans. We inherited our traits through society, our ancestors passing on down through generation to us. Our awareness helps us identify the areas that need work. As we engage ourselves with conscious efforts, we emerge, we evolve, we nourish ourselves. We hope for permanent progress.

Does it happen? How to find out how it happened? That’s whole another thing. Long story short. Simply observed, the same situation that would set you on fire once no longer triggers the similar reaction since you have been working on this aspect, you just might have progressed. Yet, there is no one way to find the way to transformation. You are your own director of your awareness and consciousness.
Today, was a great day, Jesus transformed the face of history. His efforts through His living life set an immeasurable example of resurrection and transformation. His story allows us to introspect selflessly. His teachings of healing and undemanding compassion set forth the awareness one can make effort only if one desires to. Consumerism has changed the truth of any solemn celebration. So, all you peeps, ask this question as you look in the mirror, are you a work in progress?
