A Long, Fulfilling Life

Long Happy Journey

Everyone wants a long and fulfilling life. So
How do people achieve it? They stay excited
About things they love doing and do them they do
With abandon. Each moment for them is brand new.
The flame of their lives keeps being reignited
By their love for life and their willingness to grow.

Keep it simple. Find out what you love to do and
Do it as early as you can if possible.
Remember what you loved to do when you were young.
What excited you? You can find something among
All those things that will make your life more meaningful.
Doing it causes your consciousness to expand.

Failures are fertilizer. It doesn’t smell good.
You don’t want to roll in it but in it will grow
Seeds of wisdom. Your failures are only detours
Off your path. Get Back On. The decision is yours.
Those who live happy lives learn to go with the flow.
That life has peaks and valleys is well understood.

When you live today as if tomorrow you’ll die
But you learn and you yearn as if you’re going to
Live forever you guarantee your life will be
Most fulfilling and ripe with opportunity.
Give more back than all that has been given to you.
Never retire because you can always retry.

Loosen Up!

Too Hard At Work

All good work is exciting when you first start out.
Then as time goes by life happens and frustration
Is experienced often. The work must go on
But it’s now an entrapment. Ambition is gone
And there’s not enough time left for recreation.
Your dreams for the future are now riddled with doubt.

Don’t Be Tense. To be tense is the surest way to
Fail in any undertaking great or not so.
Your success is a splendid thing but don’t pursue
It too tensely. It will suck the life out of you
If you do it, and you will have nothing to show
For the struggle in all of the work that you do.

There’s an attitude of mind which may be compared
To a clenched fist, a knitted brow, set teeth… and this
Kind of attitude cannot bring any success.
What it will do is make you ill because of stress.
If you play your life like a game then you won’t miss
Opportunities which with others can be shared.

Beyond your wildest expectations you’ll succeed
If you treat your work as fun. The difficulties
Are all part of the game. Laugh at annoyances.
The whole picture will change as your mood enhances
Your becoming. Eventually you’ll find ease
In your work as the tension within you is freed.

Motivation

Clarity Of Mind

The beginning of the rest of your life is right
At this moment. A new world can be frightening
And exciting all at once, and you’re protected
By divinity – the force that has directed
You thus far. You find life to be enlightening
For the most part. It seems that your future is bright.

Think outside the box. Don’t be afraid to explore
Your ideas with passion. Don’t be afraid to
Take chances and to fail in a very big way.
You have only one life. It has to be okay
To climb every mountain. The spirit within you
Keeps experiencing life and asking for more.

Dream big dreams but remember that dreams without goals
Are just dreams which if not acted on will decay
And fuel disappointment. Goals you can achieve
With consistency if in your heart you believe
That you’re worthy of having things work out your way.
You are living a life that no one else controls.

To achieve your goals discipline you must apply
Which you’re already doing. We don’t plan to fail,
But we fail to plan. What is your motivation
For continuing with this new life you’ve begun?
Ask yourself ‘why’ and answer in vivid detail
And your purpose the universe will satisfy.
