“For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. ” ~ Alfred D. Souza
All questions at the public meeting that day were about life beyond the grave.
The Master only laughed and did not give a single answer.
To his disciples, who demanded to know the reason for his evasiveness, he later said,
"Have you observed that it is precisely those who do not know what to do with this life who want another that will last forever?"
"But is there life after death or is there not?" persisted a disciple.
"Is there life before death? - that is the question!" said the Master enigmatically.
~ Anthony de Mello
“Live today. Not yesterday. Not tomorrow. Just today. Inhabit your moments. Don't rent them out to tomorrow.” ~ Jerry Spinelli
“You're alive. Do something. The directive in life, the moral imperative was so uncomplicated. It could be expressed in single words, not complete sentences. It sounded like this: Look. Listen. Choose. Act.” Barbara Hall
“I believe every human has a finite number of heartbeats. I don't intend to waste any of mine.” ~Neil Armstrong
P.S:Ever so often people tend to put their lives on hold.
The hustle of bustle of making a living seems to take up all of their time, energy and attention.
What would it take for us to live a life of total ease and joy, while making a phenomenal living without compromising on anything ?????
