— Eva B., Edmonton, Canada
From a spiritual perspective, your problem is that there is way too much "I" in your thinking. Remember, Eva: You're the faucet; you're not the water. Your human existence is a conduit for something much greater—the divine that lives within you. So start each day asking how you can serve your Creator; how you can put more love into the world; how you can be a more compassionate person. Those things are your greatness. Without a connection to our source, all of us are mediocre really. But connected to the One who lives within us, all of us can be great.
