Life is What You Put Into It

Wednesday, August 04, 2010

A son and his father were walking in the mountains. Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams: "AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"
To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain: "AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"

Curious, he yells: "Who are you?"

He receives the answer: "Who are you?"

Angered at the response, he screams: "Coward!"

He receives the answer: "Coward!"

He looks to his father and asks: "What's going on?"

The father smiles and says: "My son, pay attention."

And then he screams to the mountain: "I admire you!"

The voice answers: "I admire you!"

Again the man screams: "You are a champion!"

The voice answers: "You are a champion!"

The boy is surprised, but does not understand. Then the father explains: "People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE. It gives you back everything you say or do. Our life is simply a reflection of our actions. If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart. If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence. This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life; Life will give you back everything you have given to it."

    I would modify this to reflect the truth, the WHOLE truth and nothing but the truth as follows:( Please note that I stated "truth" instead of "Truth". That's another realm altogether.) : Our EXPERIENCE of life is simply a reflection of our THOUGHTS. All of our thoughts. The mind never sleeps. We are making (not creating) our reality 24/7. We avoid looking at what we are thinking 23/7....LOL LOL

    One of our main problems is that we would prefer to be right than to question ourselves and change our choice of choosing fear over Love. When we awaken and realize it IS up to us to choose once again we enter into True (capital T) Miracles.

    Another apparent point, please allow this: It is easier to mull over intensely insightful phrases than to venture out into the experiential realm of living the dream The only way we can possibly wake up to who we really are is to indeed take action.

    Love ya!
