Life is just a moment

A man died…

When he realized it, he saw God coming closer with a suitcase in his hand.

Dialog between God and Dead Man:

God: Alright son, it’s time to go

Man: So soon? I had a lot of plans…

God: I am sorry but, it’s time to go

Man: What do you have in that suitcase?

God: Your belongings

Man: My belongings? You mean my things… Clothes… money…

God: Those things were never yours, they belong to the Earth

Man: Is it my memories?

God: No. They belong to Time

Man: Is it my talent?

God: No. They belong to Circumstance

Man: Is it my friends and family?

God: No son. They belong to the Path you travelled

Man: Is it my wife and children?

God: No. they belong to your Heart

Man: Then it must be my body

God: No No… It belongs to Dust

Man: Then surely it must be my Soul!

God: You are sadly mistaken son. Your Soul belongs to me.

Man with tears in his eyes and full of fear took the suitcase from the God’s hand and opened it…

Empty…

With heartbroken and tears down his cheek, he asks God…

Man: I never owned anything?

God: That’s Right. You never owned anything.

Man: Then? What was mine?

God: Your MOMENTS.

Every moment you lived was yours.

Do Good in every moment
Think Good in every moment
Thank God for every moment

Life is just a Moment.

Live it…
Love it…
Enjoy it…

I choose this little story above for a very personal reason I will share at a later time. All what I want my readers to stop for a moment and think what life is all about. We have 86400 moments daily and every one we waste will never come back. So lets live life to the fullest, meaningful and purposeful. Ask yourself „What legacy can I leave behind“? „What is my purpose“?.

We are still at the beginning of a new year. Goals are written down for 2017. How many did you achieve in 2016? I am not different. For years I write goals down and only a few are accomplished. Some for legitimate reason, others just out of procrastination. Tomorrow is another day. Our time can be limited and we have to be aware of it.

May you all have wonderful, inspiring goals for this upcoming year and please let me know what you do successfully reach them. I would love to hear from you.

Love and Light,

Saskia

A couple called home a small shack near the forest living of the land One day a beautiful colored bird flew into the small room, set down and stayed overnight. In the morning the bird left back to the forest and returned in the evening to spend the night. This happened day after day and month after month. For the couple was this bird a welcomed guest who brought them joy. They enjoyed the company of this bird so much, they named him Happiness and looked forward to his nightly return.

One day late at night a stranger knocked on the door who got lost in the forest and ask for direction. The couple offered him to stay overnight and to show him the way in the morning. The visitor saw this beautiful bird and decided he wanted to have it and pay for .

The couple answer: „we will not sell this bird, but if you like it that much we will give it to you as a gift.“ So the stranger thanked them and ask the men to bring the bird the next day to his Castle. He was the King. The elderly men did like he was told. Arriving back home, people of the king already where there to ask if the bird return to them. The man went into the house and sure, the bird was sitting on this spot. So the man brought the bird back to the castle, but the bird returned again and a third time. Then the king came in person to the couples house to pick up the bird himself. He took the bird and looked him in his face. Suddenly it was as if the bird whispered to him “ King, you don´t understand anything and never did“. The King first was to respond angry, but stopped for a moment to think and like a light bulb went on he understood and whispered back. „Now I do….stay“.

And this bright colorful bird continued to fly from country to country and stayed for a longer or shorter period of time with people who enjoyed him for this moment.

This is what I wish you all. Joy and Happiness in little things…like seeing a beautiful bird.

Happiness lies within and the ability to see it.

Happy New Year 2017.
