There was this other dreamer,whose dream was to work hard and retire at age 50. He worked hard and achieved a degree of success, held onto his dream of retiring but had no PASSION beyond that.
On his 50 th birthday, friends gathered to celebrate his birthday and retirement. His should have been one of the happiest day of life, had his dreams been properly aligned.
However when he found himself as a relatively young man without his profession to guide him, he faced uncertainty of retirement. It was something he wanted to do but discovered quickly it created no life sustaining passion for him.
In those time we yearn to have more in our lives, we should dwell on the things we already have.
In doing so we will often find that our lives are already full to overflowing.
Ironic that the people in this world that have the most to be thankful for are often the least thankful and somehow the people who have virtually nothing, many times live lives full of gratitude.
One of the greatest lessons was the legacy of the Golden List.
Every morning before one got up, one should lie in bed…or wherever he had been sleeping.. And visualise a golden tablet on which would be written ten things in his life he was especially thankful for…or to be thanked for.
One should be thankful for most trivial things and other days feel a deep sense of gratitude for one’s life and everything surrounding you.
The gift of problems teaches that obstacles ar enothing more than a challenge that we face . When you look at your problems through a spirit of love, you realise that there is a grand design to this world and the problem is given to you for the lesson it will teach you and the better person it will make you.
People can become a family when they add love to their relationships. Without love, families are just a group of people who share the same family tree.
Gift of laughter teaches that in order to love life, you have to enjoy it. When you can laugh at the good things and the bad, you will begin to feel the love , life really has to offer.
