I Found Life’s Answers in My Room

I found life’s answers in my room; The fan said be cool. The roof said aim high. The window said see the world. The clock said every minute is precious. The mirror said reflect before you act. The calendar said be up to date. The door said push hard for your goals & the carpet said kneel down and pray.

Your Past Shapes Your Future

I cannot shun the past because it contains information that is useful to script future goals. Looking back into the opaque window of reductive retrospect, what essential opportunities exist today that beckon one to seek with unrestrained enthusiasm? What iridescent signals flare from our conceptual self that if we heedlessly ignore their luminous summons, such deliberate acts of omission will suture the apex of our souls, relegating us to the dreaded curse of mucking along in an ordinary life stalled out by our overweening fear of estrangement?

There are certain key tasks in which we must attain at least some degree of mastery in this life if we are not to waste time.

They are:

  1. Making personal contact with God.
  2. Healing & regenerating our own bodies – demonstrating health. Getting control of ourselves and finding our True Place.
  3. Learning to handle other people both wisely and justly.
  4. Perfecting a technique for getting direct personal inspiration for a general or specific purpose.
  5. Letting go of the past completely.
  6. Planning the future definitely & intelligently.

To have made some real progress in each of these points even though we are still far short of mastery is true success. Of course, we shall all advance farther in some of these directions than in others, but some progress must be made in each of them.
