Imagine A Whole New World

Imagine a complete change in mankind’s mindset.

Imagine every baby coming into this planet being greeted in the delivery room with these words: “Welcome! You made it! You are in Heaven! This is your garden and your playground. Take good care of both: make the garden more beautiful and the playground more enjoyable, and go have lots of fun with everything and everyone in this planet!”

Imagine we also receive this message at birth: “Welcome! You made it! You are in Heaven! Don’t worry. This is a place of abundance. There is more than enough for everyone. You don’t have to be afraid. You don’t have to accumulate. Just take good care of the garden and the playground, help one another, share your toys, and go have lots of fun with your friends.”

Imagine these messages becoming the truth we all live by.

Imagine how the idea that this is Heaven — that we are in Heaven already — could change everything.

Imagine how a slight change in mankind’s mindset could create a whole new world.

Imagine a whole new world.

Imagine.

Don’t Worry

This is attributed to a very wise man who lived two thousand years ago. He was a great teacher who gave insightful advice on how to live a good life. What follows is one of his lessons. Simply put, he told us, “Don’t worry.” Here’s what he said (in my own words):

Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves cannot break in and steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart — and your worries — will also be.

Do not worry if you will have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns; still, your heavenly Father always feeds them. And why worry about your clothing? Look at the flowers in the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet no man, not even the most powerful one, ever dressed as beautifully as them. And if God cares so much for wildflowers that are here today and will be thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you.

Think about it… Why worry? Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?

So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will I eat? What will I drink? What will I wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of those who are afraid. Calmly believe that your heavenly Father already knows all your needs and that you will receive what you need and is best for you in abundance. Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for each day has enough trouble of its own.

By the way, in case you are guessing who taught this lesson, his name was Jesus.

Arrivals and Departures

Life is marked by arrivals and departures, births and deaths. It is a puzzling and yet beautiful journey.

DSCN3506

Sometimes, I imagine the entire world as a giant and extremely busy train station, with people arriving and departing all the time.

For the most part, joy with the arrivals and sadness with the departures of their loved ones are the feelings of those who are not traveling. But those who are embarking on new adventures experience excitement, joy, and a renewed energy to tackle whatever the upcoming journeys may have reserved for them.

Farewells in airports. The endings of romantic relationships. I felt sad when loved ones left. I felt depressed when stages of my life came to an end, and I had to let go of lives that had played themselves out and did not serve me anymore. I felt melancholy and despair witnessing physical death of people I knew, and also of people I didn’t. I empathized with other people’s grief and shed tears with them. But with all that I also came to realize that endings are just new beginnings in disguise.

We are constantly losing and regaining balance: this is the natural motion of life. We are always departing and coming back.  We are always returning to the Source. We came from nowhere and we are now-here, on our way back to nowhere.

Many times I have entertained the idea that ultimate reason for living is to go through experiences that allow us to learn how to properly die. I have decided that I will prepare myself to embrace death, my own, as an exciting departure, one that celebrates the beginning of a new and beautiful adventure.

I am happy with the life that was given to me. I feel blessed for all the love I have received and the love I was able to give. Yes, my life, like all lives, had its difficult moments and tragedies, but I guess we all want to stick around for as long as we can because we love love; we love to love and to be loved.

Arrivals and departures, births and deaths, beginnings and ends are ways Wisdom uses to remind us of the inexorable transformation and the impermanence of all. It is also a way of reminding us that, in the end, it’s all about love: the love we make, the love we leave, and the love we take.

Love!

“This body is not me. I am not limited by this body. I am life without boundaries. I have never been born, and I have never died.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
