…There are many many variations on the meaning of life….yet do we really comprehend any of them? Do we really listen and hear the meaning of these philosophies, these undeniable truths? Yes life is too short. Too short. What do we interpret that to be? That we don’t have enough hours in the day to clean the house and tax the car….or perhaps to soak up the enormous beauty of life that our blessed senses have the miracle of experiencing….
I ask that you look upon the world with fresh eyes…do not mock the singer or song when you do not know the meaning of his tone or lyric…do not mock the junkie in A&E who was abused by his father after watching his mother die….do not mock the notion of religion or even science and technology come to that…for are they not both equally grand in meaning and creation?
We all have our individual preferences….we are not all compatible or agreeable but is it not right that we respect that incompatibility and conflict of opinion so that we may become wiser and grow as a person. It is right and only human to have negative feelings but it is about how we channel those feelings and react to the consequences of these actions…
Smile at your neighbour and someone else will smile back at you…whether you hold the door for a stranger or hold the arm of a friend…do so with great pride and dignity.
I promise you one thing in life…if you live it with poise, positively and proactively you will experience the greatness of life in return…open your mind to all that surrounds you. Visit the theatre…hey if you don’t like it, you tried it…visit the park, the lakes, the mountains, the ocean….
The more you open your mind, the greater the possibilities that become open to you in your life….embrace life and it will embrace you.
And that is why….whether I die in 20 years or 20 mins…I know I go with enormous fulfilment and serenity that although I didn’t see the many wonders of the world…I felt the colours and complexities of life with the simplest of principles…life is too short.
Do not be afraid to aim high above your potential…you will be pleasantly surprised
And remember we are all new to this…from 6 to 60…there are no second chances…
Don’t waste your life making someone else’s a misery…
The doctrine of your life…shapes all that surrounds you….
