Life simply amazes me. When I think about how beautiful nature just is, I am amazed. Where nature is untouched by humans, it moves through its seasons naturally. The gentle breeze distributes seeds until they find a place to rest and take root. They break through the surface with the urging of the sun and nurturing rain. They flourish, they wilt, and they flower. They eventually return to the soil to be recycled into nutrients to feed other life growth. There is a natural calendar to nature. It isn’t stressed about how to be or what to do. It doesn’t worry about what happens next. And it doesn’t fear about what is or isn’t there. It simply is. Nature truly is a precious gem.
If we could live our human existence through the eyes of nature and just be, we too could live without stress, worry, and fear. We could simply live a precious human life.
Quotes of the day:
“Life becomes precious and more special to us when we look for the little everyday miracles and get excited about the privileges of simply being human.” ~ Tim Hansel
“Use your precious moments to live life fully every single second of every single day.” ~ Marcia Weider
“The most precious gift we can offer is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
“Life is too short to spend your precious time trying to convince a person who wants to live in gloom and doom otherwise. Give lifting that person your best shot, but don’t hang around long enough for his or her bad attitude to pull you down. Instead, surround yourself with optimistic people.” ~ Zig Ziglar
For the next week, I invite you to go through your week:
With the awareness of Dalia Lama’s “A Precious Human Life”.” Read it daily when you get up and go to bed and let it soak in to every pore knowing that life truly is precious.
“Today I am fortunate to have woken up.
I am alive; I have a precious human life.
I am not going to waste it.
I am going to use all my energies to develop myself,
To expand my heart out to others,
To achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings.
I am going to have kind thoughts towards others.
I am not going to get angry,
Or think badly about others.
I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”
Mostly, I invite you to truly feel how precious life is and to enjoy every moment of it. Enjoy the great times. Enjoy the contrasting times. Enjoy the sun. Enjoy the rain. Enjoy the loudness. Enjoy the silence. Enjoy creating. Enjoy learning. Enjoy loving – and mostly, enjoy living.
Until next time, live and love a precious life.
