I’ve always wanted to live the best life possible.
The whole reason for learning and practicing Ascension meditation, to consciously and actively have a better attitude, to clearly see what limiting thoughts and attitudes I have, all of it is to make the most of my time here.
I realised early on that life is short. All because I had so many friends and acquaintances die in their late teens and early twenties.
One guy I worked with went to the doctor with a sore stomach and was dead 2 weeks later. One friend died on a kayaking trip. A friend was on a cycling trip and got hit by a car. Another, a brother of a friend, crashed a plane. So many more stories.
It’s not pleasant at all, but I’m glad it happened. Like all things, death has a silver lining.
Death has been the greatest lesson - simply because the presence of death is an awesome reminder that we don’t have a whole lot of time.
See when you think you have a lot of time, you tend to waste it, you tend to postpone. You tend not to worry about squeezing the most out of life because you can do it, well... later.
But those who realise how precious this life is, that time indeed is running out, they really do get the most out of each and every moment. They don't wait until later.
Each person, each conversation has greater significance because you don’t take things for granted.
Each dream, each great ambition, you don’t let a doubt or a limiting thought get in the way of you making it happen.
You don’t have the time for a life that is not yours, living and doing the things you can’t stand and can’t accept.
Come to terms with the fact that life is short. Develop the ability to make the most of each and every moment, to make sure you live your dreams, to live the best possible life.
