Living Life to the Fullest 

Regardless of what experiences we go through, there is always the choice to live life to the fullest. Life and how we live it is a choice and we want to make the best of it. Our life on planet Earth is brief and temporary and we want to fully enjoy it, creating abundance and peace and joy. I frequently get the question, how can you create abundance, peace, joy, and all the good things in life when at the moment there are so many challenges? True, it is a simple concept which is not so easily applied, but that is the game of life. But with Intention and Commitment and daily action, it does become easier to achieve that space in your life. Then life becomes so precious and beautiful. Here are a few ideas for you: 

  1. Script your day: In the morning, just before you get off bed, script your day. Visualize your day. See yourself going out and conquering the world. See yourself surrounded by peace and love and joy in your life. See yourself on top of the world fulfilling your dreams. Do the same at night while in bed ready to sleep. 
  2. Capture each moment: throughout the day, commit yourself to be so ‘present’ in each activity, that you are able to capture the beauty in every single moment of your day. Capturing each moment means that you decide to remain in the “Now”, not allowing the mind to think much of the past or of the future, but the “here and now” appreciating each moment. 
  3. Choose to stay in your Power. In other words, do not give your power to others. It is your choice to not react to others’ behaviors. See others’ behaviors toward you as opportunities for you to be loving, compassionate, forgiving. 
  4. You may have heard many times in your Spiritual path that “you are a Spiritual being having a human experience” and not the other way around. Now, try becoming aware that the Spiritual Being that you are is here visiting planet Earth. Imagine you just landed on planet Earth and become aware of your senses and the beauty around you. Become aware of all the little things in life, the clouds, the trees and plants, the sounds of birds. Become aware of your physical body and the sensations of your body. Remember you are the Spiritual being inside of that physical body. Remember that everyone is a Spiritual being and we are here in this brief and temporary journey, sharing it with our loved ones. Decide to not take them for granted but enjoy each precious moment with them. 

Living life to the fullest and being happy are our choices. At the end of our lives what matters is how present we were throughout our journeys. What matters is not what we accumulated but our interactions with others. What matters is how loving we were toward ourselves and others. Let’s commit today to living life to the fullest, after all, it is transitory and ephemeral.
