How… Will You Remember Me?


Helen_Keller_Quote_3I find it curiously informing how we direct our attention throughout our lives.  In a telling and deliberate manner, as youth, we absorb information, accumulate knowledge and develop skills as we continuously define who we are, what we like (and dislike), what values we espouse, and most importantly, who we wish to become; perhaps who we wish to become… like.

As adults, we repeat or practice those values, continue to absorb knowledge and develop, perhaps more complex, cerebral and intricate skills, and largely, establish ourselves as social animals in our neighborhoods, communities, groups, associations, families and society.  Many times, we seek out others who share our interests, beliefs and passions.  In a managerial sense, we execute the plan.

As seniors, we guide others, offer our help and expertise, provide moral support, perhaps kscn0017learn new, yet intangible skills, witness the world growing up around us, and yes, reflect much about the past, our acccomplishments, successes and failures, relationships, and with grounded certainty; the could have’s, should have’s, and might have’s; as we look forward to an uncertain future…  OUR future.

“Now, it goes without saying that the behaviors that primarily exist and characterize each of the phases of our lives, sometimes exist in each of the other phases.  To a large degree, I believe that is a sign of a healthy, focused, authentic and self-actualizing human being.  It speaks to clarity of purpose, values, beliefs and yes,the courage to see them manifested in our lives.”

Wisdom_Mark_TwainWhat might not be quite so obvious, however, is whether our values, behaviors, and aggregate plan of our lives, were and are influenced by external forces, such as spirits, past family members, saints, angels and even God Himself!  What is equally amazing and simply incredible is the realization that the same God who spoke to and with, guided, disciplined, comforted and encouraged the Greatest human beings of all time…  is the same God who walks with us every moment of our lives; if we invite and welcome Him into it.

“True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.” – Socrates

To be sure, each of us are indeed, worthy of God’s love, deserving of his Grace and destined to be with Him in heaven one day.  Of this I am certain.  Life is but a preparation, perhaps a dry run and most assuredly, practice, for our eternal and spiritual existence.

Of all the aspects of life that define it, I find one of the most intriguing to be, intent.  The Believedriving motivation, desire or outcome we strive to realize in life is driven, at times in an invisible fashion, by our intent.  True intent reveals our authentic soul and accordingly, is painstakingly guarded to remain unseen, lest we allow others to see us for who we truly are as individuals.  Yet, the most powerful people I know in the world, all share at least one trait, in that they deliberately allow their authentic soul to be visible and manifested in their lives by their actions, words and deeds.

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou

So, in revisiting my initial question posed in the headline, How, and will, you remember me?  And in a parallel manner, how do you project yourself to the world?  What is your intent?  What core values guide your thoughts, actions, words; and prayers?

Peace to you…   Joy to you…   Comfort to you…   Courage to you…   Eternity to you.

Be well and know that God loves you every moment you breathe.  It is your right to be loved, valued and included.                                    Look for the Good, Always.
