More Life As A Race

on August 6, 2013

Continuation from yesterday,

Sixth, Curiosity is the fuel which keeps us going.  Without it you will go nowhere!  My favorite character as a child is Curious George, the monkey in yellow.  If you have not seen these programs I suggest checking them out and even if you have revisit them from time to time.  The innocence of youth is a gift we need not loose.  Curiosity is a big part of this innocence.  Also do not equate innocence with ignorance; it is more accurate to say they are opposites!

Seventh, Go with the flow….  “Resistance is futile” (Star Trek).  “What you resist persists.” (Jung) What this means is to trust the flow of life and do what you must.  Blindly wandering the in dark is dangerous so it is important to find the flow (meaning) and go with it.  The truth of the matter is there is no meaning to life or more simply put, YOU are the meaning of life.  Your life, your creation!  No this does not contradict number 2, because God is all there is.  Your life is God expressing through you (flow).  This is also why nothing is either right or wrong, it is because it needs to be for the experience God is expressing though you.  The part which confuses us is Free Will.  You have both free will and destiny.  Life will unfold as it does and if you really need to experience something then you will eventually experience it.  Love and loss are examples we all seem to experience at some point in life, so learn to deal with them.  You can choose to avoid certain experiences such as fighting, but if “life” needs to experience it through you it will.  Resistance is what causes pain; the more resistance the more pain. Consider this when making your choices in life.

Eighth, Life itself is a relationship, but as humans we are most concerned with inter-relationships with loved ones.  Family is the first challenge we all face and then there is romance.  All I have mentioned prior applies here!  Just understand the world is a reflection of who you are and love is the answer.  While this is simple no one is saying it is easy.  Loving your family and close relations is like loving yourself!  Or it can be the opposite, so consider this carefully as you observe your relations.  Sometimes you will play the antagonist and sometimes the victim, follow the previous advice and all will work out.

Ninth, Take care of your body.  It is your vehicle for experiencing life and if you abuse it life will be cut short.  As we grow the adolescent years are the most challenging to the physical body, between puberty and all the adult challenges we face these years can be most difficult, but at the same time they can be the most rewarding.  You will test your limits and this is to be expected, just do so with caution.  Listen to your inner voice of reason.  This is the voice which is whispering, if you hear it loud and clear then do the opposite! (The ego is loud and demands to be heard, avoid this voice.  Instead get quiet and listen to the still small voice which is your Soul)

Lastly and in continuation of caring for your body understand that life responds to your thoughts about it, and not just your thoughts but those of the majority.  The majority of people believe eating healthy food makes you healthy, but I say having healthy thoughts makes you eat healthy food!  Your beliefs about what you do, including what you eat will determine the outcome.  It is literally possible to think yourself healthy!  Of course the best advice here is Ben Franklin’s saying, “All things in moderation”.  Alcohol is good for you in small doses, but if abused it will kill you.  Fried food on occasion is fine, but eating only fried food will slowly destroy your health.  Strive for balance, love your body, even or especially the peculiarities, and respect others choices to do the same.
