I heard today a dear friend was taken to a hospice.
His name is Maurice, and he has taught me much in a short time about Love. So much, he will, probably, never know the extent.
He has reminded me:
- To live fully
- To love fully
- To make the most of my time here
- To not take anything for granted because it can change in an instant
- To forgive everyone who I ever thought has hurt me, and to do it now. Without forgiveness, love is just an empty word
- To be true to myself and make a stand for what I believe in
- To change what I can and accept all that I can’t
These are just some of the things that come to mind now.
He has reminded me that there are people dying to live – just one more day, one more hour, one more minute, one more moment. Think of all the people you know who are ill. If you don’t know any personally, then think of the people in the news, maybe those who have contracted Ebola, the disease of the moment in the media. Are they hoping to live just one more day?
And you? Are you dying to live? Or are you just getting by each day with a belief that you have a long time to go? Can you really know that to be true? What if this is your last day? What will you think with your dying breath?
I know what I thought as I lay in the operating theatre after my heart attack. I was thinking, “I’m too young to die. Please, God, give me one more day. I’ll do anything You want me to…” I was dying to live. And it’s not a nice feeling, to realise that you haven’t lived fully.
Now the good news. If you are reading this, it’s not too late.
This is a moment of choice. To live life fully, or to die slowly and regret it when it’s too late.
It’s your choice.
Perhaps, like me, you’ll be lucky and get a second chance.
Then again, maybe not. Its 50:50. Do you like to bet on those odds? I don’t. I like them stacked in my favour.
I hope you live before you’re dying to live.
In a week’s time, I get to help those who decided to live now at the Emotional Mastery Retreat.
I love to see the transformations that occur as people experience their own greatness and power: sometimes for the first time in years.
The bad news; this program is fully booked now.
The good news: I’ve decided, for the next Emotional Mastery Retreat in May 2015 (yes its along time away for me to wait to have so much fun again helping people transform!), I am going to giving away a scholarship to one lucky person. Watch out for details of this in the coming weeks.
Until then, stop waiting. Start living.
