One thing I know for sure is that the answers to that question will change as my life changes. Or at least I hope my answers change, at least a little.
Another thing I know for sure right now is that I hope I continue to learn and grow, to be open and curious. I believe as long as we are learning we are living. Through knowledge and understanding my perspectives will change.
So what do I know for sure right now where I am in my life experience?
I know that love is the most powerful force. I know that fear is not good for me, or for anyone. I know it’s best to not live in fear. I know that understanding relieves fear. I know that openness leads to understanding. I know respect for others comes from respect for oneself. I know that to get love, we must first give love. I know that the more we give, the more we receive. I know that in any situation there is good. I know that if we look for good and remain open to it, we will find it. I know that light cures darkness and love cures hate. I know that I am thankful for this life. I know I love laughter. I know that I’m making a big pot of chili on my stove at this very moment. I know that if I’m grateful for what I have and appreciate it, I will feel content. I know that contentment is really happiness. I know that if I take my gifts for granted that I will feel ungrateful and maybe even bitter. I know I have talents I have not yet discovered. I know that my six dogs are resting peacefully at my side. I know that I choose how I react. I know that in my choices I build my own experience.
I know for sure that whether I think “I can” or “I cannot” I am correct.
What do you know for sure?
