Beatitude of Gratitude – Every Moment of Being is a Gift


Paradox_of_TimeAs life is lived, we have been truly privileged to experience the gamut of beauty, emotion, happiness, contentment, fulfillment, peace, love; and equally sadness, darkness, anxiety, anguish, violence, turbulence, perhaps even abandonment and punishment.  Yet, at both ends of the spectrum, we are vastly better human beings as a result.

Life, if nothing else, is preparation for our continuing journey.  It is a learning experience, an opportunity to share ourselves with others and to receive love from others.  IT HAS PURPOSE.

Everything in life has a purpose.  It is profoundly our responsibility and obligation to search for the truth and purpose of our individual being.  It is our nature to pursue spiritual understanding and comprehension.  It is boldly, our destiny.

Why is it then, that we spend perhaps 95% or more of our daily breaths on things that, in the larger canvas of consciousness, are meaningless?  Have we become mere creatures of habit, unintelligent amoeba in the biology of our environment?  Are we simply Deathbedgoing through the motions?

We hear time after time after time again, from people on their deathbed, how they wished they had done all these other things (in life); not wishing what they would not have done…  they receive or experience that clarity of purpose, albeit and ironically, a bit too late.

“For men to cry, to admit defeat, to nurture and demonstrate their innermost emotions and feelings to and with others; that my friends, is to live.  To acknowledge our weaknesses, joy in our strengths, and commit with our entire being to seek improvement and understanding.  Society has all but taken control of our sense of what is and is not acceptable in behavior, and worse, in thought!”

Depp_QuoteIn a spiritual context, are you worth saving?   Well, are you?  More simply, are your sacrifices in this life worthy of eternal redemption?  Think hard and long before reaching a conclusion.

Judgment_Day_GateAnd what if the End of the World is today?  Have you and I earned salvation?  Have we atoned for our transgressions against God and our fellow human beings?  Is our life review a documentary or a horror story?  Will the judgment we receive be a just one?

Indeed, let us seriously and deliberately decide to live life with purpose, get serious about our faith and seek to understand, serve others and through the process, learn more about ourselves in an eternal perspective or context.  We seriously need to become better planners.

Look not to your habits, but to your Heart as a SILO (Sacrifice, Intent, Love, Obedience).  Refuse to become a “test case” for a lobotomy experiment.  Create a robust, meaningful and experiential existence… and then, share it with everyone you know.  Because, you and I are worth it.  Be well.

Open your mind, heed the words, lest not judge what we know not.  Only that it will BE.
