Life Experience

Life has taught me that slow and steady do actually win the race.

Don’t try to run ahead of your shadow. Don’t try to grab it all at once. Don’t even try to think you can always predict the future correctly. Stick to doing your best at all times, reevaluating your current situation and making decision on how best you can make progress.

Live happily from where you are now, not where you were yesterday or want to be tomorrow. Things always work out- just look back and see the evidence.

Do we have free will?

I was pondering upon the question of free will this morning (11/09/18) and it was dawned on me that we actually do have a free will. However we are not allowed by life and purpose to exercise whatever we think is our free will fully.

Life by its nature is purpose driven, whether we are consciously aware of it or not. Life must live its full course and we have to surrender sooner or later to it or be broken by it if we get in the way.

If you are struggling in any area of your life, take a seat back and check whether you are navigating against the current of life. It may be that a change in the course of direction is highly needed and you must change course to have a whole new experience or continue with the struggle.

Both decisions (to continue with the struggle or change course) are very difficult to our mental self, but to progress we must try something different. Failure to do so will keep us bound in perpetual human suffering.

Today

Today is all you have.

Live your highest ideal today.

Follow your heart today.

Do your best today.

Do not carry over the burden of yesterday into today.

Do not bring forward the weight of tomorrow’s expectations today.

Enjoy what is laid before you today.
