OK, keep it light – what do you LIVE for? Health, or wealth? Or can we have both?
Clear mind, happy heart – privacy and quiet without empty loneliness = perfect relationships with others, with our world, with ourselves.
I can live most days without many things which are part of my life – not because I want to, but I know I could. Better question: what can I not live without?
Family is everyone’s easy answer – both for those we have sweet relationships with, and also the ones where things are rocky or disconnected – everybody needs and wants that. But after that, what comes first? Second? Third? Tenth?
This hierarchy, no different in purpose than Maslow’s, but different in other ways for me. Perhaps for others too.
What do we want in life, what do we want as an essential part of our every day?
Are we ready to be clear and to take action on that?
Readiness is like a puzzle game – you need all the parts, need to assemble them correctly. Readiness is a machine – like perfectly machined gears lubricated with silky oil. Readiness is a mindset – it is experience and preparation, it is imagination and abandon. Readiness is steadiness – it is purpose and planning, it is calmness and adhesion to principle.
Readiness is feeling – knowing time and place are aligned with our life.
You are so right. Sometimes we want it so bad and when it doesn't work out be get down on ourselves instead of looking at it might be a good reason it didn't work out because there is a greater opportunity awaiting us down the road, MJ, Calgary, AB
