Be Limitless Be Brave To Feel

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs passed away at age 56 in 2011, it is said Steve left behind a deathbed essay about the meaning of life. Whether true or not, it has a profound impact on how I feel about my life and this New Year ahead of me. Here they are…. Steve Jobs below…

I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.

At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.

In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of god of death drawing closer…

Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated to wealth…

Should be something that is more important: Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger days.

Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me.

God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth.

The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me. What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.

That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on.

Love can travel a thousand miles. Life has no limit. Go where you want to go. Reach the height you want to reach. It is all in your heart and in your hands.

What is the most expensive bed in the world? Sick bed…

You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you. Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life.

When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – Book of Healthy Life.

Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends.

Treat yourself well. Cherish others.

Reflections Over Tea

One hour daily spent on your priorities will boost your enthusiasm for life . . . as well as your self confidence….

Enjoyment, Love experiencing what you enjoy doing, I have learnt is a state of being………

Thinking about is the world of I love you as long as you value what I value, as long as you be who I need you to be and as long as you love me as I need to be loved. Which is the sort of love that turns to hate when we don’t get what we think we want but that is not real love.

Real love has no opposite it is a state of being. Giving to yourself with your own passions, then meeting your partner as a whole person committed to yourself first. Then sharing your happiness with openness is Love..Priorities .. Creativeness…. Time …. Allowing …. 

Elizabeth Gilbert new book Big Magic asks a  Question:

Q: What is Creativity?

A: The relationship between a human being and the mysteries of inspiration.

While I sip my tea, workout or sit alone in a rose garden(sipping tea) I connect back to me and my creativity. If I’m super organised I have a pen and note book, on me to write down my ideas. This is the core of my own personal development strategy, time alone, staying in balance with what feels right for me. Allowing others to do the same for themselves, knowing I can’t fix anyone else but I can be there to hear them when they are ready.

This is my understanding of Love being a state of being…..embracing curiosity, loving what I Love the most…
