Today, as I was journaling, this title came to my heart and I thought… How many times have we heard this thought, feeling, action, word, as the answer to all our problems yet we still struggle for solutions?
“Love one another as I have loved you” replaced Ten Commandments and prior to the 10 commandments, there were so many laws & commands that we were doomed to fail. “Not wanting to fail or break the rules” seems more important than the awareness of one logical solution; LOVE. In fact, most religions are fear based. Yes, I said it! We cannot keep 1 commandment, let alone 10 so if you are anything like me, the fear of breaking one commandment might keep us from achieving true unconditional Love. Fear vs. Love = EGO vs. Essence… Fear will keep us paralyzed, unhappy and small; Love, will set us free!
I want you to take a moment and think about this question … How would your life be different, today, if you learned that you only had one week to live? Would you live your life in urgency or would you continue living life as you are doing?
Because I want to hear from you, I will be the first to become vulnerable… (Remember, you can remain anonymous when you share ;-))
If I only had 1 week to live, first, I would confirm that all my affairs are in order. Then, I would surround myself with my family and friends. Although they all know how much I love them, I would make sure, there was no doubt and that each had a scheduled date, with no distractions. At our scheduled date, I would stand face to face, look deep into their eyes and hold their hands. Slowly, I would take my right hand and place it over my heart and then take my left hand and place it over their heart… no words needed, just gratitude. (Wow, tears are flowing, just thinking about it…) After I wipe all my tears, I would give each a treasured possession and would acknowledge their goodness. I would take 100% responsibility for my unflattering behavior and ask for their forgiveness. Then, after all the words are spoken, I would ask them to dance with me. We would proceed to dance, as if no one was watching, to “Suavemente” by Evis Crespo.
What do you think this world would be like, if we lived life with this kind of urgency?
So now, it is your turn to share… How would you spend your last week on this earth? I look forward to read what you would do and in the meantime, I have some appointments to make!
