A walk

A walk is a time to ponder, “my life.” 

A life is a gift bestowed, but you must be present in it, to shape it intentionally, the way a potter shapes his clay. If you don’t, someone else will.

It is easy to drown, in daily chores, losing sight of one’s bearing.

To labor day after day; to toil in the details, and yet never step back, is unwise; we will get lost in bushes instead of climbing to the horizon. After all, life’s satisfaction comes from progress and progress happens when we take time to review and adjust the course.

Where am I heading?

Is this where I meant to go?

How did I get here?

Am I in control of my destiny?

These are questions of sweet solitude–a time deliberately taken off to dream the bigger dream..

If progress is important, vow never to fall asleep to your vision. Before you do fall asleep, ask of yourself:

 Whom have I loved today?

What have I build today?

What have I learnt?

What step have I taken today toward a greater life?

Just Next to You

Image

Hello My Friend;

What makes life a chore, a bore, is a life devoid of variety and freshness. Step outside of your mindframe; it isn’t that the moment is stale; no, every nano-second is dripping with freshness like morning dew.

You ought to know that standing just next to you is the Other You that you haven’t gotten to know yet. The Other one will have kissed the girl that you did not dare; the other one began medical school at the age of forty two; the other one befriended cancer and defeated the pest; the other you dropped out of engineering school and became the Chinese pianist. All of this, the Other You would have done if only you had known that standing just next to you is the undiscovered Self.

You see your neighbor sees your neighborhood differently than you do; your own son sees life differently than you do. Who is right then–you or your son? Well,everyone is right because what one sees is the only reality that one sees.

The enlightened one is driving in the street right now . Behind the steering wheel he recites the mantra–there must be another reality just as I am driving through my own. There must be thousands of realities and each one that I believe will take me sailing like a small boat in an infinite ocean.

Bon Voyage!
