This is another terrific post that was on my Facebook page. It was passed on from another terrific site called zenpresence.com
1. Your human life is impermanent.
Self explanatory. No matter what your spiritual beliefs, this life has limits. Cherish every moment.
2. Life has whatever meaning you give it.
So many people, myself included, waste so many years searching for a pre-packaged purpose to be placed at their feet. Save yourself some time. Create a purpose from your values and beliefs. Creating a list of principles, values, and beliefs is a good place to start.
3. You can ( and do) make a difference.
Everything you do ( or don’t do ) makes a difference. No man is an island. All of your choices affect everyone else in your life in one manner or another. Are you adding value?
I know you have probably heard the saying, there are no such things as coincidences, a million times. Most people just say oh yea you are so right and then move along their day not even realizing what they are not seeing.
I never paid much attention to those things. Things would happen and I would move on. I never put thought into whether this thing led to this thing or not. It just didn’t matter to me. Well, it matters now.
I have to say that once you open your eyes to these things it is hard not to see them. It is also a glorious thing to view. It is like little bread crumbs being laid at your feet and you just have to be wise enough to pick them up.
I had many such things line up for me to eventually make the decision to go see Giselle and follow through with that decision. Eventually I just had to admit that I was meant to get my ass up there. I could no longer ignore the signs.
