Ready or not.....

Post by Vanilla2 on September 29th 2010, 5:03 am

One day it will all come to an end.

There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days.

All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten will pass to someone else.

Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.

It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed.

Your grudges, resentments, frustrations and jealousies will finally disappear.

So too your hopes, ambitions, plans and to-do lists will expire.

The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away.

It won't matter whether you were beautiful, handsome or brilliant.

Even your gender and skin colour will be irrelevant.

So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured?

What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built, not what you got, but what you gave.

What will matter is not your success, but your significance.

What will matter is not what you learnt, but what you taught.

What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice that enriched,

empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example.

What will matter is not your competence but your character.

What will not matter is how many people you know, but how many will feel a lasting loss when you're gone.

What will matter is not your memories, but the memories that live in those who loved you.

What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what.

Living a life that matters doesn't happen by accident. It is not a matter of circumstance or of choice.

Choose to live a life that matters.

Very Beautiful Vanilla2 Very Happy

What i felt it speaking to me was, to be the Best Person i can, Help Others, without expecting anything in return. Love all, open up & do what i need to do Spiritually.

I've always felt good when i've helped others, but when i expect things in return, it becomes less meaningful. We all know how to Live Rightly. When we are Aware of it, our Life seems to have more of a Purpose. Live Life Rightly & Learn From all Your Experiences.

Many Blessings

Peaceandkarma, do not feel negative, read it again, there is so much that does matter.
The positives far outweigh the negatives. flower

wow Vanilla, beautiful words. to be remembered always.
I posted two threads in the "Angels" subforum that I wanted to bring to your attention, if you're interested in reading some astounding angelic experiencies that happened in Valencia (Spain) in 1987.
cheers, and thanks for your post. It was just what I needed to read.
