The Journey of Life

The Journey of Life

“If you ain’t busy living, you’re busy dying” – Bob Dylan

One of my teachers once said, “We are not here to solve all the problems of the world… we are here to not be ONE of them.” Life is filled with many twists and turns, speed bumps, ditches and dead end streets. This is the journey of life. There are so many things about life that we can not change. We can however, change ourselves. We are surrounded today with many positive celebrity people that look so young in their aging process. I am not talking about plastic surgery but the amount of energy they still have in their lives. They show up in life with an energy in their sixties that most people do not have in their 30’s. I have met people that are only in their 20’s and they are already too old. One of my dear friends just turned 86 and she said that she and her husband went out the other evening with some old people…and I said, “How old were they?” she said, ”Very old.”

This is our greatest challenge when we are hit with life’s tragedies (and we will be). Allow yourself to go through the process; hurt, grieve and do whatever you need to do but make a vow to yourself to stay young on the inside.

Carrying What I Don’t Need

Carrying What I Don’t Need

I think back to my Army days. All those foot marches and all the pain associated with them. As a young private I packed pretty much everything I could before we went out. I wanted to make sure I had all the comforts to help make life easier. I made sure to have extra meals,…

Living in the Absolute and the Relative

Living in the Absolute and the Relative

Siddhartha did not wake up being shielded to real, authentic life as a human being. He saw what was real to others and was guided to understand the way of suffering and of peace because he could sit in both realities. Every day we hear stories that are beyond shocking and within many of us…

“Which One Are You?”

“Which One Are You?”

By Poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox There are just two kinds of people on earth today, Just two kinds of people, no more, I say. Not the rich and the poor, for to count a man’s wealth You must first know the state of his conscience and health. Not the humble and proud, for, in life’s…
