”Old legends fade while new giants emerge in our world of sobering truths and eternal hope.”
So, we as the advanced species, need to learn to emulate the animal kingdom by getting past blame. In removing blame from our lives, we take a firm stance against assigning responsibility to anyone else for what we are experiencing.

I have in no way achieved this Utopian state but am able to see the faint glimmer of its glow.
I don’t apply a bevy of lifestyle shaping tools but If there is one force that guides my daily life, it is that I commit myself totally to this day, every day. I celebrate the moment I am in.

I regularly meet so many people who are anxious about the future but while many are on that road, there are even more who waste their days regretting what they have done or not done. They spend their entire lives fretting about things that never were and things that never will be. I was like that until I rubbed shoulders with death. Now my eyes are wide open, and my whole life is centered on this day. I will die or I will fly, based on what I do today.

Today is a gift, that’s why they call it the present
