To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle.
There is an appointed time for everything.
And there is a time for every event under heaven –
A time to give birth, and a time to die;
A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
The bad news is time flies.
The good news is you’re the pilot.
Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute,
day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways.
Patience is a flower that does not grow in everyone’s garden, however you can sow the seed of thought in a persons mind to enable them to grown their own!
It is to better to have and not need, than to need and not have
Don’t forget the forest for the trees!
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming “WOO HOO what a ride!” Have a wonderful day!
If everybody feels fear when approaching something totally new in life, yet so many are out there “doing it” despite the fear, then we must conclude that fear is not the problem
REMEMBER Victim observer judge
E + R = O
Event + response = outcome
We cannot change others or situations or events but we can influence – never try to control as you will lose the power to influence
Real creativity is creating a response, reaction destroys the response
Beliefs: victim, shapes or destroys – what you think is right
Values: love in relationships, happy in life and peace in our hearts – what you care about
Happiness drives life
You do not know what you have until you give it away
Love doesn’t work as long as you think you want something back….. stress is absent when love is present (in general)
If you are uncomfortable in a chair, then move, don’t be a victim of the chair, its not the chairs fault that you are uncomfortable……
Is my mind present enough to make a decision that is creative?
Every time I close my eyes…who are you, theres a place I go when I am alone – be anything I want, anything I want to be……that’s where I am going
It has taken me until now to realise that life in itself, can be as simple as you want to make it, but if you have an issue or a problem then 99% of the time, it is YOU that is the problem not anybody else, and you are the only person who can control yourself and make yourself better, as the good news is, You are the Pilot! You must be the change you wish to see in the world as the past is solid, and the future is liquid and there the past is a guidepost not a hitching post.
We hurt ourselves over and over again and the easiest thing to do is to push the blame on to another person. Always remember – when you point the finger at somebody else, there are always 3 fingers pointing straight back at you!
It is only possible to live happily ever after on a day to day basis, and we do not remember days… only moments, for eternally and always, there is only one now,
One and the same now; the present is the only thing that has no end.
I would like to dedicate this story to every individual that has walked into my life, for good or for bad, most have created some kind of growth. Some have stayed and still play a fundamental part in my life and others have just travelled straight through and we have each continued our own journey.
There is a purpose for everyone you meet. Some people come into your life to test you, some to use you, and some to bring out the best in you.
We look backward too much and we look forward too much; therefore we miss the only eternity of which we can be absolutely sure – the eternal present, for it is always now…
To be continued…
