The Missing Piece
Have you ever experience it …as if you have everything in your life but you seem to be floating , looking for something missing in your life … and your search leads you to nothing …as in…
I have the blessings of a good career with a stable income ..all my children are college graduates and have a work of their own..I have my own house , own car , all the physical manifestations of a prosperous life … I have the so-called trimmings of a simple life… I have joy in my heart but still I am a searching for something I can not define .
Until I found this book of John Gray and he was discussing about our love tanks .
He said we have ten love tanks to fill in :
1. Love and support of God
2. Love and support of Parents
3. Friends, family and having fun
4. Peer support
6. Relationships, partnerships and romance
7. Unconditional love to someone
8. Giving back to community
9. Giving back to the world
10. Serving God
I was so amaze while reading because little by little all my questions on myself are being answered by the principles of the book of John Gray.
All along I was searching and looking for all sorts of solutions for my life journey. Sometimes I also feel guilty because I am so blessed but I am still looking for something which I can not even define to myself. Do I need to give up something right now ? But on second thoughts I told myself am I sure to give up what I’ve worked for and even ask in my prayers. Every day there is a little voice nudging me to find my real purpose in my life . I am in my midlife and just like a teenager looking for his place under the sun , the so called identity crisis .
I am looking for a place where I can make a difference and share my experiences . I feel I can still stretch my abilities and help others be a success.
When I came upon this book of John Gray , I realize what has been missing in my life . I have to strengthen and improve my relationship with God by serving the community and giving back to the world all the blessings God has given me . Serving God by serving His people with the talents and skills that He has given me to improve myself.
The missing piece in my life … is God.
It is just right under my nose and I haven’t seen it…
Thank you John Gray for enlightening me with your book on Love Tanks.
