16.Abundance Is A Life Style



Abundance is a life style, a way of living your life.It

isn't something you buy now and then or pull down from the

cupboard, dust off and use once or twice, and then return to

the cupboard.

Abundance is a philosophy, it appears in your physiology,

your value system, and carries its own set of beliefs.You

walk with, sleep with it, bath with it, feel with it, and

need to maintain and take care of it as well.

Its not walk existent with "S" for sap on your forehead

either.It’s a knowing that you're perfect in your present

moment, that what you have right now was most likely based

on choices you made yesterday and what you needed to learn

in order to be in the prefect moment now.Yet not seen as

right or wrong but let go of those judgments and embrace

with a splendidness that you can symbol with just a single

choice right now.

Abundance doesn't inflexibly require money.Many people live

with all that money can buy yet live empty inside.

Abundance begins inside with some main self-ingredients,

like love, care, kindness, and gentleness, thoughtfulness

and compassion.repleteness is a state of being.It radiates

outward.It shines like the sun midst the many moons I the

world.It’s subsistent the sun with discernment and love for the

gift of this being.

Being from the auspiciousness of dump doesn't assent the

darkness to spring or be in the path unless a peerless to

allow it to.The true state of tirade doesn't have room

for lies or games normally played.The space is too full of

abundance.This may be a thwart in that we still need to

shine for others to see.

Progressing into abundance, a transition, requires courage.

It is driven by the feeling of knowing of its possibility

and seeing the little spots and lenient them to grow

bigger.Making them consistent choices and removing all

else, that doesn't fuel that being.

Abundance is seeing people for their gifts and not what they

lack or could be. Seeing all things for their gifts and not

what they lack.

Start by knowing what your abundances are, fill that space

with you, and be fully present from that state of being.

Your profession of voice is telling you this already.

Examples:Coaches have an superfluity of knowing and

possibilities.That is their gift.Consultants and

customer service professionals have the flood of

success, practicality, in common.directing Assistants

and Virtual Assistants have an productivity of coordination and

time management.oceans is all here and there you, and all

within.See what it is, love yourself for what it is, not

what you're missing, or what that can be better.But for

what is, at this present moment.

Be in a state of multiplicity of what you before all have.I

guarantee they are there, it ever and anon is.concealed but there.

Breathe them in as if they are the air you trumpet because

they are yours.Let go of that isn't effuse for

the time being.Name the shoe boxes in your bank with

your gifts of abundance; pull from them every morning if

needed.Know they are there.

Learning to trust in your own exuberance is required.Who

else can you more than yourself?No one.When you commence to

be within your own space of superfluity whatever you need will

appear whenever you need it.That’s just the way the higher

powers set this universe up to work.Trust the universal

energy.The knowing of it all will humble you to its power

yet let the promptness of you shine everywhere it needs to.

Just by stuff from a state of abundance, it is inmost heart you.

17.Human Life a Poem

I think that from a biological standpoint, human life almost reads like a poem. It has

its own rhythm and beat, its internal cycles of growth and decay. It begins with innocent childhood, followed by awkward adolescence trying awkwardly to adapt itself to mature society, with its young passions and follies, its ideals and ambitions; then it reaches a manhood of intense activities, profiting from experience and learning more about society and human nature; at middle age, there is a slight easing of tension, a mellowing of character like the ripening of fruit or the mellowing of good wine, and the gradual acquiring of a more tolerant, more cynical and at the same time a kindlier view of life;then in the sunset of our life, the endocrine glands decrease their activity, and if we have a true philosophy of old age and have ordered our life pattern according to it, it is for us the age of peace and security and leisure and contentment; finally, life flickers out and one goes into eternal sleep, never to wake up again. One should be able to sense the beauty of this rhythm of life, to appreciate, as we do in grand symphonies,its main theme, its strains of conflict and the final resolution.

No one can say that a life with childhood, manhood and old age is not a beautiful arrangement; the day has its morning, noon and sunset, and the year has its seasons, and it is good that it is so. There is no good or bad in life, except what is good according to its own seasoN. And if we take this biological view of life and try to live according to the seasons, no one but a conceited fool or an impossible idealist can deny that human life can be lived like a poem.

人生就像一首诗

从生物学角度来看,我认为人生读起来就像一首诗。人生有着独特的韵律和节奏,有着内在的发展和衰退周期。人生始于天真无邪的童年时代,随之而来的是不知所措的少年时代,笨手笨脚地努力适应成熟的社会。在此期间,既有青春的激情和傻气,也有人生的理想和抱负。紧接着就到了紧张激烈的成年时期,人们从经验中受益,更多地了解社会和人性。人值中年,可以稍事放松,此时性格趋于成熟,如同成熟的果实和甘醇的美酒;人生态度逐渐变得更加宽容,更加冷峻,同时也更加仁慈。再往后,就到了人生的夕阳时期。此时,内分泌腺活动减弱。假如我们真正参透老年哲学,并据此安排我们的生活模式,晚年对我们来说就是平和、安定、闲适、满足的岁月。最后,生命之火熄灭,一个人永远睡去,不再醒来。我们应当能够感受人生节奏之美,如同欣赏宏大的交响乐,我们能够欣赏它的主题,它的冲突旋律以及最后的和声。

没有人敢说,由童年、成年和晚年构成的人生不是一种绝妙的安排。一日之中有清晨、正午和日落,一年之中有四季。大自然如此安排自有其道理。人生并无好坏之分,只有看能否适应“季节”才可以品评优劣。假如我们能从这种生物学角度来看待人生,尽量顺时而生,适季而活,除了傲慢自大的傻瓜和无可救药的理想主义者,谁又能否认,人生可以活得像一首诗呢?

18---Solitude

I find it wholesome to be alone the greater part of the time. To be in company, even with the best, is soon wearisome and dissipating. I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude. We are for the most part more lonely when we go abroad among men than when we stay in our chambers. A man thinking or working is always alone, let him be where he will. Solitude is not measured by the miles of space that intervene between a man and his fellows. The really diligent student in one of the crowded hives of Cambridge College is as solitary as a dervish in the desert. The farmer can work alone in the field or the woods all day, hoeing or chopping, and not feel lonesome, because he is employed; but when he comes home at night he cannot sit down in a room alone, at the mercy of his thoughts, but must be where he can :see the folks,:” and recreate, and, as he thinks, remunerate himself for his day’s solitude; and hence he wonders how the student can sit alone in the house all night and most of the day without ennui and :the blues:; but he does not realize that the student, though in the house, is still at work in his field, and chopping in his woods, as the farmer in his, and in turn seeks the same recreation and society that the latter does, though it may be a more condensed form of it.

Society is commonly too cheap. We meet at very short intervals, not having had time to acquire any new value for each other. We meet at meals three times a day, and give each other a new taste of that old musty cheese that we are. We have had to agree on a certain set of rules, called etiquette and politeness, to make this frequent meeting tolerable and that we need not come to open war. We meet at the post-office, and at the sociable, and about the fireside every night; we live thick and are in each other’s way, and stumble over one another, and I think that we thus lose some respect for one another. Certainly less frequency would suffice for all important and hearty communications. Consider the girls in a factory---never alone, hardly in their dreams. It would be better if there were but one inhabitant to a square mile, as where I live. The value of a man is not in his skin, that we should touch him.



I have a great deal of company in my house; especially in the morning, when nobody calls. Let me suggest a few comparisons, that some one may convey an idea of my situation. I am no more lonely than the loon in the pond that laughs so loud, or than Walden Pond itself. What company has that lonely lake, I pray?

And yet it has not the blue devils, but the blue angels in it, in the azure tint of its waters. The sun is alone, except in thick weather, when there sometimes appear to be two, but one is a mock sun. god is alone---but the devil, he is far from being alone; he sees a great deal of company; he is legion. I am no more lonely than a single mullein or dandelion in a pasture, or a bean leaf, or sorrel, or a horse-fly, or a bumblebee. I am no more lonely than the Millbrook, or a weathercock, or the north star, or the south wind, or an April shower, or a January thaw, or the first spider in a new house.

19.Giving Life Meaning

Have you thought about what you want people to say about you after you’re gone? Can you hear the voice saying, “He was a great man.” Or “She really will be missed.” What else do they say?

One of the strangest phenomena of life is to engage in a work that will last long after death. Isn’t that a lot like investing all your money so that future generations can bare interest on it? Perhaps, yet if you look deep in your own heart, you’ll find something drives you to make this kind of contribution---something drives every human being to find a purpose that lives on after death.

Do you hope to memorialize your name? Have a name that is whispered with reverent awe? Do you hope to have your face carved upon 50 ft of granite rock? Is the answer really that simple? Is the purpose of lifetime contribution an ego-driven desire for a mortal being to have an immortal name or is it something more?

A child alive today will die tomorrow. A baby that had the potential to be the next Einstein will die from complication is at birth. The circumstances of life are not set in stone. We are not all meant to live life through to old age. We’ve grown to perceive life3 as a full cycle with a certain number of years in between. If all of those years aren’t lived out, it’s a tragedy. A tragedy because a human’s potential was never realized. A tragedy because a spark was snuffed out before it ever became a flame.

By virtue of inhabiting a body we accept these risks. We expose our mortal flesh to the laws of the physical environment around us. The trade off isn’t so bad when you think about it. The problem comes when we construct mortal fantasies of what life should be like. When life doesn’t conform to our fantasy we grow upset, frustrated, or depressed.

We are alive; let us live. We have the ability to experience; let us experience. We have the ability to learn; let us learn. The meaning of life can be grasped in a moment. A moment so brief it often evades our perception.

What meaning stands behind the dramatic unfolding of life? What single truth can we grasp and hang onto for dear life when all other truths around us seem to fade with time?

These moments are strung together in a series we call events. These events are strung together in a series we call life. When we seize the moment and bend it according to our will, a will driven by the spirit deep inside us, then we have discovered the meaning of life, a meaning for us that shall go on long after we depart this Earth.

20.Relish the moment

Tucked away in our subconscious is an idyllic vision. We see ourselves on a long trip that spans the continent. We are traveling by train. Out the windows, we drink in the passing scene of cars on nearby highways, of children waving at a crossing, of cattle grazing on a distant hillside, of smoke pouring from a power plant, of row upon row of corn and wheat, of flatlands and valleys, of mountains and rolling hillsides, of city skylines and village halls.

But uppermost in our minds is the final destination. On a certain day at a certain hour, we will pull into the station. Bands will be playing and flags waving. Once we get there, so many wonderful dreams will come true and the pieces of our lives will fit together like a completed jigsaw puzzle. How restlessly we pace the aisles, damning the minutes for loitering --waiting, waiting, waiting for the station.

"When we reach the station, that will be it! "we cry. "When I'm 18. ""When I buy a new 450SL Mercedes Benz! ""When I put the last kid through college. ""When I have paid off the mortgage!""When I get a promotion.""When I reach the age of retirement, I shall live happily ever after! "

Sooner or later, we must realize there is no station, no one place to arrive at once and for all. The true joy of life is the trip. The station is only a dream. It constantly outdistances us.

"Relish the moment "is a good motto, especially when coupled with Psalm 118:24:"This is the day which the Lord hath made;we will rejoice and be glad in it. "It isn't the burdens of today that drive men mad. It is the regrets over yesterday and the fear of tomorrow. Regret and fear are twin thieves who rob us of today.

So stop pacing the aisles and counting the miles. In stead, climb more mountains, eat more ice cream, go barefoot more often, swim more rivers, watch more sunsets, laugh more, cry less. Life must be lived as we go along. The station will come soon enough.

The Happy Door Mildred CramHappiness is like a pebble dropped into a pool to set in motion an Ever-widening circle of ripples. Ad Stevenson has said, being happy is a duty. There is no exact definition of the word happiness. Happy people are happy for all sorts of reasons. The key is not wealth or physical well-being, since we find beggars, invalids and so-called failures who are extremely happy. Being happy is a sort of unexpected dividend. But staying happy is an accomplishment, a triumph of soul and character. It is not selfish to strive for it. It is, indeed, a duty to ourselves and others. Being unhappy is like an infectious disease; it causes people to shrink away from the sufferer. He soon finds himself alone, miserable and embittered. There is, however, a cure so simple as to seem, at first glance, ridiculous: if you don't feel happy, pretend to be! It works. Before long you will find that instead of repelling people, you attract them. You discover how deeply rewarding it is to be the center of wide circles of good will. Then the make-believe becomes a reality. You possess the secret of peace of mind, and can forget yourself in being of service to others. Being happy, once it is realized as a duty and established as a habit, opens doors into unimaginable gardens thronged with grateful friends.

爱美之心

自然之美随处可见。宇宙是它的殿堂。美绽放在春天的百花间,摇曳于树枝与片片绿草间,流连在陆地与海洋深处,辉映于贝壳和宝石的光泽中。不只是细微的事物,还有海洋、高山、云朵、星辰、日出与日落,这些无一不美。

欣赏美的能力不仅增加了我们快乐的源泉,也提高了我们的灵性。美安抚烦躁,驱除忧虑。走进原野与森林,夏季里到海边或山上呆上一天,所有的烦扰将全部涤荡一空。倾听悠扬的音乐,徒劳的恐惧与小小的妒嫉都将成为过去。世界之美引导我们寻找到真善美。
