Before I can become a great Wine, I must first recognize the essential backbone begins with the grape – the divine essence for which all wine is produced. Without embracing it, I could only be a WINE wannabe and never reach my full potential as a Cabernet Sauvignon.
God gave me intelligence and the desire for expansion and left me in charge of the wine making. The grape wants to turn into wine. God is routing for me because he too enjoys drinking the good stuff – after all life is too short to drink bad wine.
Sometimes during my life, I will need to get stomped on like a grape to get my divine juice out.
I will also need to expand my character by spending time in the barrel of life. This is where some of the necessary work will be done to awaken my consciousness to a new reality and level of being. No longer a two buck chuck at level one. I’ll climb the charts on wine spectator to a more drinkable level.
The time I spend in the barrel will have a profound effect upon the wine I become. Tears of sorrow will enhance my flavor, my personal growth and self-reflection, will deliver character and the tannins of my backbone will become smooth with perspective, compassion, and humility. This process is essential to become a mature and drinkable Cabernet Sauvignon and it is my hope that people will want to drink me up for the richness of flavor, matured to perfection – perhaps with a little pepper around the edges for distinction. My aging will make me smooth on the palate and softer on the finish.
With age, I will only get better and in life I will enjoy getting in my bottle and going on the tasting appointments of life. I now deliver an authentic expression because I am in alignment with my higher self and my divine essence – the two perfectly balanced.
The journey has produced what I have always wanted to become – a Cabernet Sauvignon.
