“Live as if you were to die tomorrow.
Learn as if you were to live forever.”
— Mahatma Gandhi
Thanks to nightingale.com for this quote! Learn something new every day — what does this do for you? It keeps you alive in the truest sense of the word. In the last couple of years, I’ve yearned for a quieter, simpler life. I’d rather not hustle and bustle every day doing this and that and just concentrate on BEing. Guess what? That doesn’t do it for me either. I can tell just from the moments I do have (and need!) that it’s not the “be all, end all”. What is it then?
Balance of energy. It’s our responsibility to nurture our souls with quiet contemplation and meditation, THEN to go out into the world and apply what we’ve discovered, as well as interface with others to Learn more.
“It takes money to make money” — I don’t know who first came up with this quote, but I would revise it to “It takes money to completely fulfill your Purpose”. Make no mistake, money is helpful as the means, but is NOT the end! How much easier it is, though, to fulfill our “capital P” Purpose with some bucks behind us!
It IS our responsibility to be good stewards of our gifts, so be in the know. Know what affects your personal prosperity, know how to increase it, know how NOT to decrease it … so that fulfilling your “capital P” Purpose becomes a journey of the soul and not of the pocketbook!
