Living in this fast pace society with all the technological advancements, I often question, are we really living? Observe your surroundings; everybody wants more, need more and in the process of getting more, killing ourselves to get more...More of what?
In the meantime, ask yourself, are you doing the things that make you happy. Rather are you doing some of the things that make other people happy instead of following your heart's desire, your passion and doing what you want to do.
I don't think God, the Universe, the Supreme Creator wanted us to work 40 hours a week, for 40 years and barely living off 40% of earned income. That is man's law, greed and vanity that keep us in this insanity and rat race.
In the midst of running on the hamster wheel, slow down and take a detour. You will be surprise all the beauty that surrounds you, despite the craziness and destruction going on around you.
Yes, life can be cruel and devastating but there is a time to tune out the outside world and go within that inner sanctuary of you. Listen to that inner voice, which is your divine guiding system. It will give you peace of mind and if you listen with your heart it will guide you out of whatever situation you are in.
However two requirements are needed to tap into this source; you must have unwavering faith and believe in the unseen power to get what you want, despite what you see, don't see or have.
In a split of a second, life can bring about a dramatic change. Live in the moment and enjoy life as it comes, this journey on this side of the soil is a short one.
Live your life and follow your heart, you got one chance....Live it.
I am a baby-boomer in the second phase of life. A reality check when you realize that you have more years behind you than in front of you.
