Lugh was a Celtic god of many talents. He journeyed to Tara, where Nuada was king, and asked to become part of the court. However, the doorkeeper told Lugh that only a craftsman, someone with a special gift to offer the court, would be admitted.
Lugh told him that he was a skilled blacksmith. But they already had a blacksmith.
Lugh told him he was a skilled harpist. But they already had a skilled harpist.
Lugh told him he was a skilled swordsman. But they already had a skilled swordsman.
Lugh told him he was a skilled poet. But they already had a skilled poet.
Lugh told him he was a skilled horseman. But they already had a skilled horseman.
Time after time, Lugh mentioned a skill, and the doorman informed him they already had someone who could perform that particular trade.
Finally Lugh asked the doorman if they had anyone who could perform all those skills. The doorman had to admit they did not, and Lugh was admitted into the court of Nuada.
We all have talents that are waiting to be expressed. We are creative beings, and we were created to allow God to work through us – which means we are here to give something to the world. That “something” comes from a place of love, and we will feel a passionate call from our soul to allow that “something” to come into being. That expression will allow us to be of higher service to ourselves and those around us.
Nothing is impossible. Eric Butterworth said that anything God has done, God can do – which means that because God works through you, your dream – no matter how impossible it may seem – can be realized.
