Stressed? Take time to rise above it

Stressed? Take time to rise above it


We live in a frantically paced world.  The pace of life sucks you in and it is very hard to escape its grip. The tug of war between living calmly or frantically is harmful to your body and mind.  One must choose the life you desire.

You may need to decide today not to follow the crowd of people running to corporate America and plugging-in to their highly caffeinated world of “get it done yesterday” attitude.

Life was meant to be a flowing experience; moving from one experience to the next. Our existence is meaningful, joyful, purposeful, and satisfying, peppered with a number of challenges.  Faith, family, friends and work should provide meaningful integration, not agitated segregation.

You were not an accident. The sheer complexity of the universe and all its flowing parts, is a work of unimaginable art. You too are a work of art with talents and abilities. Rushing through life forces people to ignore their true talents, causing unfulfilled dreams and drudgery from 9 to 5.

Time is as big in the past as it is in the future. Infinite cannot be measured by man.

Your issue is to deal with your present, pressing, daily issues. First realize you are a vanishing mist, a flower that is born in the spring and withers as the cold winter approaches. You are a participant in a season of time.

Your issues today are not going to stop the sun from rising and falling. You are important, very important. Try to comprehend your frantic life in comparison to the sheer greatness of the world around you.

Stop and actively live life today. Be comfortable in the small part you play in an infinite universe. Regardless of your performance, the planets and stars will still perform their work of cosmic art.

Each day has been blessed. It’s up to you to listen to that God-given voice inside of  you for guidance.

During the day, walk above the congested traffic, the ill-tempered driver, the impatient public, the demanding and hard-hearted manager.

Wisdom allows you to walk above your circumstances. You are above the confusion, emotion, stress and drama. Looking down on your circumstances is much better than looking from below.

Rise above your circumstances. The view is better up there.

It is better to find your mission in life, rather than a career.
