Life

Life is a gift. It is given without instructions, directions, or an owner’s manual. Life is a performance with no dress rehearsal and a great symphony with very few encores. Some people have near death experiences but I’m more interested in “near life” experiences.

True living means giving all that we are and have to everything we do. Life mirrors the enthusiasm and commitment we bring to it. Loving people live in a loving world, lonely people live in a lonely world, and hostile people live in a hostile world.

When we are asking life to give us something, we will receive it when we start to bring it into our awareness. In other words, we get what we bring. The quality of life is not measured by the number of years but by the understanding that life happens to us by happening through us.
