Here's some of my take on things at this point in life...
There is an important lesson in everything Teachers are all around you Lessons will be repeated, if necessary You have a major role in designing the syllabus We are part of a greater whole We are no more important than sparrows We have more responsbility than sparrows due to our potential for both good and evil Integrity, honesty and love will save you from having regrets Without service, your life will be meaningless Everything is a gift Not every gift can be returned Everything is temporary, including our own lives You can always make more money, you can't make more time Everything can be transcended We decide what it means Life is not a passive process We always get what we need when we are ready to move forward Acknowledging that you have what you need and taking responsibility in using it is up to you Your stress is your own responsibility, it is not up to anyone else to make yours go away You have to slow down if you really intend to understand anything Over-commiting is a great way to self-sabotage Paying attention takes time. You can't move faster than the speed of life. Life takes time. Multi-tasking is over-rated, anything worth doing is worth getting your undivided attention Having a to do list is not the same as having a life Having a theory of breathing is not the same as breathing Having a loving companion makes life a richer experience, but you still walk your path as an individual. Love is all that matters. Getting older is cool. Rocking cool.
