This is the last quote in the challenge, so I decided to include a quote from a well-loved source………..ME! Now, you may think that is cheating, but I don’t see any rules against it. In fact, I may just throw in a bonus quote from me as well. If you don’t like it, well, it’s my blog and I’ll write whatever the F*** I want! So there!
Here it is:
“Never leave Fate in Destiny’s hands.” – Mark Kagy
It’s not very hard to figure out. Those who live life without goals or direction are at the whims of their circumstances, always reacting to external forces. They never assert their will to make something specific of their life, or to make an impact on the people and planet around them. This may actually turn out fine for many folks, but when they die, what is there to remember about them? What did they do with their life? For others, because they used no initiative to help themselves, they end up blown here and there by the winds of circumstance, always in a crisis, never able to get ahead, always reacting to change rather than causing their own change to happen.
Revelation 3:15-16, NIV:
15‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot.16‘So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.”
We are all meant to live with passion, whatever we choose to do, be it good, or bad. The only way to impact your life, and the world around you is to live with passion, and exert your will. Act, rather than react.
I don’t mean for everyone to win the Nobel prize, or become an astronaut, or be a celebrity. I just mean to take steps to control and direct your own life towards goals you set for yourself – whatever you want your life to be, based on your deepest desires. Don’t repress those desires of your heart, act on them! I certainly have not become famous, or won any great awards. But I have purpose and direction. This blog was started as a tool to accomplish a very personal goal – learning to get my ideas into a more organized form, and learning how to better express those ideas. In practicing this, I am also becoming more sensitive to that small voice of intuition which provides Wisdom to all those who have ears to hear. I am developing my inner senses to be more in tune with a higher spiritual purpose. In order to know what that is, I need to listen carefully to my intuition, and my greatest desires. This is not an easy process. Try figuring out just what it is that you truly want or desire. No, it is not easy, but in the end, I believe it will be worth it to all who take control of their own “vessel” and steer it in a specific direction, towards a specific destination.
So, I will include another quote of mine, which might just twist your mind a tiny bit. Some will understand right away, and others may never get it.
“It is both at the same time – for all time, and in One place – everywhere.” – Mark Kagy
Have a great day!
