We spend too much time waiting. Waiting to live, waiting to love, waiting to be happy, waiting to be fulfilled, and waiting to die. Why? Why do we waste the precious time we have on this planet, waiting for things that, if we decided to, we could have now?
We can have life now. We can have love now. We can be happy now. We can be fulfilled now. But you have to want it and you have to act like you want it.
Most of the essays, writings, and talks in this book are meant to inspire you and remind you of your truth. This essay takes it a step further and is meant to drive you to action. You want a better life? Act like it. You want love? Act like it. You want happiness? Act like it. You want to be fulfilled? Act like it.
And that acting goes two ways. Yes, act like you want to experience these things but more importantly ACT LIKE what it is you want. Like attracts like. So before you tell me or anyone else you want to have a vibrant life ask yourself whether you are doing what you can to act vibrantly. The same goes for love. Do you want it? Act lovingly towards others. Do you want to be happy? Act with happiness in dealing with others and in doing your day to day activities. Do you want to be fulfilled? Help someone else find fulfillment and appreciate the things you already have. You don’t have to be satisfied with what you have, but you do need to appreciate the benefit it gives, because what we celebrate and give thanks for – we get more of.
Do you want to experience heaven now? Act like it is here.
