You're alive. Do something. The directive in life, the moral imperative was so uncomplicated. It could be expressed in single words, not complete sentences. It sounded like this Look. Listen. Choose. Act.
Your beginning in life doesn't really matter. Yes, rather the bottom line is how and where you will end up. For, surely there is an end to every human/matter. And guess what? The end of every human or matter is better off than the beginning (Ecclesiates 7 : 8). Now, that's why, I'm more concerned with what and how my end will be/become. And you too ought to be more concerned with what will be your end rather than your beginning. Lest you forget. The end justifies the means . And I strongly do believe in that in toto.
Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself... You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Your home is regarded as a model home, your life as a model life. But all this splendor, and you along with it... it's just as though it were built upon a shifting quagmire. A moment may come, a word can be spoken, and both you and all this splendor will collapse.
Your life and my life flow into each other as wave flows into wave, and unless there is peace and joy and freedom for you, there can be no real peace or joy or freedom for me. To see reality--not as we expect it to be but as it is--is to see that unless we live for each other and in and through each other, we do not really live very satisfactorily that there can really be life only where there really is, in just this sense, love.
Your life is the sum result of all the choices you make, both consciously and unconsciously. If you can control the process of choosing, you can take control of all aspects of your life. You can find the freedom that comes from being in charge of yourself.
Your lifetime/life span is limited. Yes! you can't/won't live forever. I mean, you're here (on earth) just for a while. Thus, endeavour to live the life you are meant to live i.e. your predestined life.
Your mouth/word is one of the most powerful tool/instrument which you've got. As a matter of fact, the words of your mouth can captivate/enslave you permanently or liberate you for life. Moreover, the words of your mouth can equally lead you into a mess and as well it can lead you to mercy. So, dare to use your mouth to speak positively and emphatically too all through no matter what you are going through currently. Do remember, a closed mouth is as good as a closed destiny.
Your travel life has the aspect of a dream. It is something outside the normal, yet you are in it. It is peopled with characters you have never seen before and in all probability will never see again. It brings occasional homesickness, and loneliness, and pangs of longing... But you are like the Vikings who have gone into a world of adventure, and home is not home until you return.
Youth is not a time of life, it is a state of mind. You are as old as your doubt, your fear, your despair. The way to keep young is to keep your faith young. Keep your self confidence young. Keep your hope young.
“A river is nearly the ultimate symbol for the very essence of change itself. It flows unceasingly from one point of being to another, yet continuously occupies the same bed or pathway, and accommodates life’s endings with the same musical grace with which it accommodates life’s beginnings, along with all the muted and explosive moments that surface between the two extremes.”
