Hi! Just want to let you know….we don’t keep physically fit, we eat too much, we don’t sleep enough, and we work too hard. We don’t take good care of ourselves, we don’t take very good care of his Earthly gifts(nature), and we are too involved with making stough called “money”. Money should actually be considered a gift, something we use to survive and help us enjoy our lives. Many people slave away their comfort to make money and they never seem to have enough; in some books that would be called greed. Everyone who follows the way of good eventually reaps and enjoys-naturally. The good all get a turn at “money” and comfort. The greedos who go around stomping on others and destroying lives just for that horrible stough actually end up with nothing–eventually. Survival is one thing–learn to survive first and enjoy your lives the healthy and good way–and more will be given to you-have a glass of wine- REALLY!! Money may be a gift, but that’s all it is-a gift. There are thousands of other gifts. Take time out and sit down with yourself, your family or even a friend, and make a list of “gifts” in your life. Then make a list of “gifts” you desire. Are the gifts worldly? Are they spiritual? Are they far-reaching? Present it to the One above. Talk to him. He’s your friend. Ask for guidance and direction. Ask to be reprimanded and reminded. Almighty is so very gentle. Get used to his presence. He’s in your heart and your mind. That’s right! Right there in your noggin. He lets you be you-making free-will decisions, using your sense of reasoning, arguing with yourself, and learning from your mistakes. Don’t ruin your life and those in it with greed and selfishness. Look around you. Enjoy the trees, the sky, the clouds, the moon, the sun, the birds, the mountains, the sea. the lakes, the rivers, the grass, the flowers, the ants, the bees, the flies, the rocks, the moss, the rain, the wind, the snow, the breezes, the dogs, the cats, the ferrets, the squirrels……You understand? Have you ever lain down on the grass, the sand, the ground and tried to feel the whole planet beneath you? Try it. Not every planet in the universe has the beauty our earth has. Earth is in the top 10% of the most beautiful planets in the universe. I don’t think we deserve it, do you?
There is no reason why a healthy man cannot live to be 100. We’re so busy dying we forget to live.
