It’s simple to forget the ego only wants you to love you. Selfless is a ridiculous concept to the ego.
At home the ego can lay quiet, giving room for the soft side to come to the front. The soft side wants to please, honor and love. The soft side will bend, give freely and compromise. The soft side will speak words of affirmation and listen. But when we step out into social situations the ego can become a dominate force. If we’re not careful, we can let the ego steer us in the wrong direction. We can get hard, self-centered and harsh with our words. We can do and say things that we would never do if we were coming from a place of love. The if it’s not about me then it’s not for me can become our mantra.
If you move from the soft place of love you can change the world. You can improve your relationships. If you can pull from your inner well of love that is overflowing and just waiting to be tapped into you can quench the thirst of the people around you.
When you choose to be in a relationship, you’ve chosen the act of consideration. You must consider how someone else feels and what they want. The act of consideration is not when it’s convenient; it’s a part of the life you committed to. If you are me driven, you will hurt the person you’ve chosen to share space with.
If we can move through life pouring out love and respect, we can live in high frequency. What you put out you bring in. Everyone deserves someone who adores them always and in every situation.
Your actions matter, your words are powerful. Make sure you’re tapped into the right thing. It’s hard to ask the question what and who am I doing this for? It’s even more difficult to look at yourself and take responsibility for your ego.
At the end of the day it all about love. When your life is over, you do not want to regret how you treated the ones that loved you. You can build an empire, but you cannot take it with you. Life is about the relationships you’ve built, the lives you’ve touched and good you’ve done for the world.
I want to share what is said to be Steve Jobs last words. It’s powerful, and if we can truly grasp the magnitude of his words, we can shift our lives.
“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.
However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.
At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.
In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer …
Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth …
Should be something that is more important:
Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days
Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.
God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth.
The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me. What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.
That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.
Love can travel a thousand miles. Life has no limit. Go where you want to go. Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands.
What is the most expensive bed in the world?
Sick bed …
You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you.
Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost — Life.
When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading — Book of Healthy Life.
Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.
Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends.
Treat yourself well. Cherish others.”
