Have you seen the movie Avatar?
One of the main characters, Jake, is paralyzed. But every time he gets into the vessel that transforms him into his avatar body, he knows that in that body he will be able to walk, run, and enjoy life.
Can you imagine how that must have made him feel? Knowing that his permanent handicap wasn’t so permanent after all.
In the end (spoiler alert!) Jake chose to live the rest of his life as that avatar — free from his paralysis, with the love of his life beside him.
The truth is, we all live with handicaps. The physical ones are easier to detect, and often difficult or impossible to remedy. But some are less obvious — and as it turns out, these are often curable.
Take, for example, the person suffering from addiction. What would it look like if that person could wake up one day completely free from ever having to deal with that addiction again?
Or consider the emotionally handicapped. A person so insecure that they go through life telling others around them how important they are, how wealthy they are or how beautiful they are. What would it look like if they could see the beauty and importance in themselves?
Are you living with an emotional handicap that you would like to get rid of? Can you imagine a life where that handicap does not paralyze you?
Find the vessel that will allow you to break free from its chains, because a life free of them is so much more enjoyable.
