Life’s Handbook Continued

16 Jun

In today’s post I will present six more of my verses of philosophy, opening more of my world for you to see. I am presenting these in hope of opening your world to the wonders that await you.

YOUR friends will know you better in the first minute you meet than your acquaintances will know you in a lifetime.

Have you ever paid attention how some people you meet make you feel as if you have known each other for a lifetime? It is amazing how close we come to some, while some you actually have known most of your life know very little about you. Cherish these people, as they cherish you, special friends like that only come a few times in your life.

YOU are led through your lifetime by the inner learning creature, the playful spiritual being that is your real self.
DON’T turn away from possible futures before you’re certain you don’t have anything to learn from them.
YOU’RE always free to change your mind and choose a different future or past.

Your inner spirit or inner self leads or guides you through many obstacles in life. It is important that you explore all the paths you are led to. There are possible futures there that will make or break you, but if you turn and go another direction you just may be passing up the brightest star in your life. The best part of it is that if you decide you want another direction or path, you’re free to change directions and start over with a new future.
I have changed my future many times in my life and have always found happiness and peace in all of them. Life is full of promises and we should freely make good use of all of them.

THERE is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in it’s hands.
YOU seek problems because you need their gifts.

This is probably the most important phrase in my handbook because we are constantly faced with one problem or another. It reminds us that in every situation in our life, we should look for the good in it and make the best of it because in the end we end up wiser and stronger because of it. This is a gift from God and we learn to seek these problems to work through for the physical and spiritual gifts they contain. Grandfather always said when life deals you a box of lemons, make lemonade. There is good in everything so look beyond the bad and seek the good.

THE bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each others life.
RARELY do members of one family grow up under the same roof.

This reminds us that respect for others and joy in each others life is the glue that bonds people together. Blood may be thicker than water, but respect of others bridges that blood forever. It is this respect and joy in each other’s life that forms the true family.

ARGUE for your limitations, and sure enough, they’re yours.

You can do anything you want is life, your only limit is the boundaries you place on yourself. Pretty self explanatory, so why do so many insist they can’t do things?

IMAGINE the universe beautiful and just and perfect, then be sure of one thing:
GOD has imagined it quite a bit better than you have.

Life in a nutshell, you have to crack the shell to experience it to the fullest.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love,

Ed
