The story of You! The talented one.

Once upon a time in a world far far from here. A world where a lot of Ideas lived happy and free. There was one special creature, it was unique amongst all the Ideas that lived there. The day it was born all the Ideas came together, to watch the wonder amongst them. A couple of them deliberated to put a tag or label on this creature so they could differentiate its kind from the Ideas. They called it a person, which means for them "we came together". It was the wonder of all Ideas, it was raised by all of them, it was the first person in the wonderful world of Ideas. The joy they saw in the person, when they were nurturing it was so overwhelming, it made them grow bigger. So the bigger they grew, the more they knew, the more they were be able to teach the person. As the years passed by the person grew attached to the Ideas.

One day a big Idea came to the person, to announce that more of its kind has been born in their world. That it's no longer unique amongst the Ideas. As if the miracle of the one and only person in their world was no longer a miracle, but more of a result of something that is happening. After the announcement, the Ideas decided to spread all over the world to nurture every new person, and do so in their own way. The same as had happened to the first person, they enjoyed the joy of every person and grew even bigger.
Of course, not all of the Ideas went to the other new persons. Some of them stayed with the first person, and thought it more and more. This person became bright and wise from the knowledge of all the Ideas. The first person traveled the world visiting the other Ideas.

After a couple of years the world of Ideas was no longer theirs. It all became a chaos in their world. Ideas were running every second from person to person. As if their perfect world no longer existed. Even though they got so big from the joys of the persons. Their world was more a world of persons with some big Ideas amongst them.
Meanwhile the first person didn't forget anyone that raised it. The first person continued to visit every single Idea, all over the world. It came to notice that the Ideas weren't as happy as they were the day when It was born. As if the Ideas are happier when they are all together in one place. But for some reason It didn't want to tell the Ideas about this and kept it to Itself.

Years has passed and the Ideas lost their world, and they decided to go back together. To deliberate a way they can witness the joy of every person in the world without getting separated. After a lot of deliberating they made 2 discoveries. First they discovered that they were happier when they are together. The first person was also there, felt the same way and also had the same remarks. It felt happier when it is together with the happy and free Ideas. The second discovery the Ideas made was that their size was related to the amount of persons in the world. That the bigger they get, the more persons will be born. They decided to share their discoveries with the first person. It remarked that, it also noticed this when traveling around the world. At that moment they decided to share their memories of the past with each other. It was a moment of joy, fun and laughter. A big Idea that raised and stayed with the first person asked for something they can differentiate the first person from the others, a new label, and the others Ideas agreed to this. It took them a while to bring something up.

The day they brought this something up was a very special day. It was a day where every person in the world came to the place that all the Ideas were, claiming the Ideas that raised them should return with them. It was a day of chaos. The first person was the only one who could protect the Ideas from the other person. It cried and suffered a lot from the damage all the person caused it. But eventually all the persons retreated and said to return the next day. And that this will continue until the Ideas return with them. The first person was laying in front of the Ideas badly injured. It was this moment, they brought that something up. They decided to call the first person "You" which for them means “Shelter of Ideas", for them the first person, now called "You", was their hero of the day. They treated the injuries of You and provided it with more teachings. The next day the other persons left to come back the next day again. This went on for 6 days and after every day You got less injured from the person. As if You have gotten stronger with every teaching for the Ideas. On the 7th day, You stood tall in front of all the persons and preached full of confidence. You explained a way in which the Ideas can still be together and at the same time be with all the other persons. Where all can be happy, growing full of joy and knowledge.

During this event another miracle was happening inside of You, but this will be left a "mystery".

The way that You explained to the other persons was a way for Ideas and persons to stay connected. But the way had first to be mastered and this will take years. The persons on their turn proposed to come back every year with the Ideas that raised them to the place, so You can master the way. Every year the Ideas were together and celebrated it with You. As if You has manage to control the chaos that was happening in the world of Ideas.
The year came where You has mastered the way along with the Ideas. The Ideas decided to call this way "Talent" which means for them "A way to connect" on the day that everyone was gathered. And on this day You thought the persons a the fundamental piece of the Talent that he called "Imagination". Because of this Talent, will this day be the last time all persons traveled to the same place for the sake of the Ideas. Through the piece of Talent "Imagination" could the Ideas still be together even when they were spread through the world.

So the Ideas acquired their peaceful world back along with the persons. The Ideas grew bigger and the world had more persons. After mastering the fundamental piece of Talent "Imagination" the persons started to learn other pieces of Talents from You. The piece that followed Imagination was "Creativity" which led to creation of many things in the world. As for You remained the most Talented one in the World.

~The End~

The message that I’m trying to bring with this story is this:

You are talented, You have great ideas within you, Use them to take away the chaos in this world. Share your ideas with others to make them bigger. Let the miracle in you change the world to a better place for all,
