Greatest expression of you

Last Sunday, my post was Becoming the greatest expression of you. So, what is the greatest expression of you? If you are like most people that I ask this question, you may be struggling for an answer. I like to think of the Greatest Expression as being your best self. To help me create that mental and emotional space, part of my daily morning prayer and meditation is, “God, let me be as good as Luna (our dog) thinks that I am.” If I can be as good as she thinks I am, I’m having a great day! Another way of thinking about this, is to reflect on how your children or grandchildren (niece, nephew …) thought of you when they were about four years old. That’s that age of innocence where they look to you for love and protection and they love you unconditionally.

If you were being the person that your dog, or the young child in your life thinks you are, who would you be? If you were to be your best self, who are you? How would you love? How would you feel? How would you think? How would you live? How are you being in this world? What are you doing differently than you are now? Being this person, how do you feel about yourself? How would your relationships with others be different?

When I first sent people home to contemplate on this and to write their “Greatest Expression,” I began receiving two and three page documents. These epistles were heartening to read, but I realized they weren’t functional. I came to this realization when I found a six page purpose statement that I wrote for myself about 15 years ago, lost in a file drawer. I hadn’t looked at it since it was filed away all those years ago. It was too cumbersome to be a practical guide for my life. After glancing at it, I quickly moved it to the circular file.

The Path

In her book, The Path, Laurie Beth Jones teaches us that a purpose statement should be no more than two or three sentences in length, understandable to a 7 year-old and you should be able to recite it with a gun pointed to your head. Now, that is useful. So when I ask clients to write their Greatest Expression, I now specifically ask for two or three sentences. When it’s short and to the point, it becomes useful, and I believe that it becomes more meaningful to you. Two or three sentences is something you can easily read every morning as you brush your teeth whereas most of us are not going to read several pages every morning.
