. . . a moment for all your insignificant fears to drop away . . . when one HUGE fear makes you realise that it is LIFE that is the most important thing in this world. NOT Money. NOT Things. NOT Technology. NOT Work. NOTHING is more important then YOUR LIFE and the LIFE of your LOVED ONES.
I had a scare this week. A moment in which my hands began to shake, tears pricked my eyes, and fear gripped my heart like fear had never gripped it before . . . and I was helpless, stuck, unable to be proactive. My mum ended up in hospital with a racing heart (in my mind possible heart attack). She was in Australia, I was here in the UK.
My mum is fine. They found out what was wrong and have her on the appropriate medication. Mum, as always, is finding the funny side of it all. Me? I am relieved, but at the same time a little more enlightened. You see this event has made me start to think about what is really important in life. Here is my NEW list -
I have always felt these things were important, but the list has shifted a bit. I now put LOVE first, because I have realised that love is truly the most important thing . . . love of family, friends, self, others, enemies, whoever. LOVE is what we all should focus on. The others in my list are all connected to LOVE, sheltered by LOVE, imbued with LOVE. I know if I can approach everything . . . even sickness . . . even death, with LOVE then I can cope, I can survive, I can continue to thrive.
What are your thoughts on LOVE?
