Why are we born if we have to die?
That question makes it sound as if the two were the only things happening to us.
Maybe the answer lies in not just looking at those two verbs in isolation, but rather in what else goes on with us.
Unfortunately, we don’t seem to be satisfied with things we don’t know for sure. We don’t know what happened before we were born or what happens after we die.
So either we speculate about it and content ourselves with what we believe, or we give up on that and concentrate on making the period between being born and dying filled with meaning for us, the most enjoyable time.
So let’s create a simple equation, ready B (C + C) D = L meaning “you are born then you make (choices and changes) before you die equals life.
We are born at the time, place, and situation we need or the world needs, then we live life making choices and changes all the time before we die and that, my friends, is life in the physical term.
What is life’s greatest gift?
It is free will or choice.
The choice is to select one course of action from a set of alternatives to achieve a goal.
Life is not static; it is a flow. Every choice we make leads us closer to or further from our goals. We continuously need to monitor where we are on our journey.
We need to ask questions: Am I moving closer to my goals? If not, what corrective measures can I take? What action will I take now to realign myself with my goals?
The choice is power. The option is at the heart of life; it is the creative power of life.
Choose intelligence. Not every decision we make is a moral choice.
Decide what you CAN do, not what you WANT to do. Our wants are insatiable.
Choose to live with hope rather than despair.
We cannot choose what will happen TO us, but we can determine what happens IN us.
When we act out of habit rather than conscious choice, the path we’re traveling on is a rut, perhaps even a slippery slope. If we don’t want to end up at the wrong place, we have to be awake. We have to be aware and make our choices consciously.
The choices and changes that we make in our lives reflect the person that we are. Some options are more important than others, and they require a considerable amount of thought. Making the right choice or decision changes your life in the right direction.
Making a choice is an act of exercising your freedom to change your life and be who you can be. Release always brings with it responsibilities. We need to remember that we become responsible for our actions or behavior when we make a choice.
The first step to success is taking responsibility for our actions. We need to make choices and changes to decide on our path of growth freely.
You have choices all the time; change will happen whether you have consciously thought about it or not, but your growth can be slow or fast depends on your options.
There is nothing called death in the spiritual sense, only in the physical. We are just changing forms, everything is energy in this world, like when our dresses are worn off after some time, and we have to change them.
The same way our bodies are worn out or tears down, it is allowed to mix with nature, and life forces join the universal energy!
We die when our task, reason to be here, or the love or hate we gave is complete or perfect for others, even if others or we can’t understand it. We are present in that little part and moment in life and universe, and as nature is perfect, our existence is ideal.
Every year has a spring and winter, and we are the same. Some of us are here to teach, learn, enjoy, and suffer; some to be remembered for significant accomplishments or little, some of us will stay forever alive in the memory of a homeless we gave a coin or a glass of water.
Again, to quickly recap, you are born into this world with a mission or a theme; in the process, you will make daily choices that will also require changes all before you die. When you look at life with the above simple equation, you should enjoy the journey, knowing that you are in control of your choices and changes that will allow you as an individual to grow and share while on this physical earth.
Make your life a meaningful one, challenge yourself every time, do not fall into the mediocrity of many, and accept things in a status quo, or this is the way things are. Take courage, make the tough choices and the right changes, be the difference always.
