"We prevent burning out in this stressful world by doing the right thing the best way we can, by keeping our cool whenever under pressure and by going with the flow of our conscience. Harmony and balance between these three crucial aspects of life is essential towards making one healthy and happy and starts from the very first and last thought of our day.
It begins within us with a thought from which we formulate a feeling and then harness the combination into determined action. When the thought is positive, so is the feeling that immediately follows it, and more likely will be the action. When he thought is negative, so is the feeling that immediately follows it, and more likely will be the subsequent action. It is physiologically impossible for the mind to produce a positive thought, immediately followed by a negative feeling and vice versa. In short, you cannot think good about anything/anybody and then immediately feel bad about what you initially thought good.
The sooner we can learn to trust the vibes we get and start to work with the forces that surround us and the knowledge at our disposal, the quicker our confidence and self assurance will grow and the better person we shall become; the person we were meant to be. Good health and happiness are the closest of friends and usually stick together throughout life. Energy doesn't lie and both its presence or absence are reliable indicators of the state of our overall health. When we come to respect our own body it will serve us honestly. We will be able to read its needs more accurately and attend to all its wants; ensuring we will live less stressfully, more healthily and ever longer.
I know not how much longer I have to live anymore than any of you, but what I do know with every breath of my being, is that holding the above positive views will enable me to live longer than I otherwise would have done. I also strongly believe that if history has taught mankind anything worthy, it is that in the end, goodness shall prevail and overcome. I once heard a tale where life asked death, 'Why do people love me, but hate you?' Death responded, ' Because you are a beautiful lie and I am an ugly and painful truth!'
So please please me by always remaining positive and hopeful in your fellow being and in all the things you say and do and remember that the death of a dream, the death of a cause is only the end if you assume that the story is about you alone.
I will end this post with a quotation from the Greek scholar and philosopher, Epicurus who deals with the three big subjects of fear, death and self within mankind's overall experiences and existence: 'Why should I fear death? If I am, death is not. If death is, I am not. Why should I fear that which cannot exist when I do?' " William Forde: July 12th, 2016.
