Finding Neverland

A bird does not sing because it has an answer;

it sings because it has a song. – Chinese proverb

What is your song? It sure is good to know and have confidence in your song. When the seas of life become choppy and you are tired, knowing your song gives you peace, keeps you focused, and enables you to stay completly centered.

The truth is that we all came with a song in our heart. I call it our Neverland. This Neverland is designed into our hearts – it is the rhythm that we were created to dance to. When we lose our hearts we lose Neverland. We settle for an okay life believing honestly that this is as good as it gets and that Neverland is just a dream for children – it’s not practical or realistic. However, that is a lie. God and the forces of creation want our success and designed you for that purpose. It isn’t a fairytale.

In the movie Hook, Peter Pan loses his heart and forgets his Neverland. He forgot who he was and stopped believing that there was any power in Him. He lost passion, real joy, vision, and the fire of a heart fully alive. Sadly this happens to all of us. Maybe you forgot and maybe you don’t remember that even ever knew.

You see, Neverland is real but it isn’t for children. It isn’t a place where we play all the time. (retirement) Neverland is when you live the life you were designed for. When your work, and play flow from this design. When the cries of your heart shout loudly into the world in a beautiful symphony of sound.

Beware though! Just like in Peter Pan’s Neverland there are pirates that try to end you. They want Neverland for themselves and will do anything to get you to forget that it is real or that you have value.

Time is chasing after all of us – don’t wait for Neverland to find you. It won’t happen.
