Meditation (2) – 24th December 2017

This Life Will Go By Fast
Don’t fight with people, don’t criticise your body so
Don’t lose sleep over your bills. Look for the person that
makes you happy. If you make a mistake, let it go and
keep seeking your happiness.
Never stop being a good parent.
Don’t worry so much about buying luxuries and comforts
for your home, and don’t kill yourself trying to leave an
inheritance for your family. Those benefits should be
earned by each person, so don’t dedicate yourself to
accumulating money.
Enjoy, travel, enjoy your journeys, see new places, give
yourself the pleasures you deserve. Allow dogs to get
closer. Don’t put away the fine glassware. Utilise the
new dinnerware; don’t save your favourite perfume, use it
to go out with yourself; wear out your favourite sport
shoes; repeat your favourite clothes.
So what? That’s not bad. Why not now? Why not pray
now instead of waiting until before you sleep?
Why not call now? Why not forgive now?
We wait so long for Christmas; for Friday; for Reunions;
for another year; for when I have money; for love to
come; when everything is perfect… look…
Every thing perfect doesn’t exist. Human beings can’t
accomplish this because it simply was not intended to be
completed here. Here is an opportunity to learn. So, take
this challenge that is life and do it now… Love more, forgive
more, embrace more, love more intensely and leave
the rest in God’s hands. Amen.
Pope Francis
