Either Life Is Too Short Or Eternal!

The realization that life is very short brings dynamism in your life. Unwanted things will fall off as well as distractions. When you have to be acting or putting out effort, know that life is short. When you are expecting a result, then you are often frustrated. The ignorant person does it the other way: He hurries for the result and is impatient. Impatience goes away when you know that life is eternal. When you are looking for a return of a favor from someone or a result from your good deed, you want it quickly. When you realize life is short, procrastination falls away. But when you know that there are many lifetimes, you realize that if you don't get it sooner, you get it later. Wake up and see your life is too short. Time is running so what are you doing with your life? Is it being useful to you and the world around you? Realize life is too short. WAKE UP! LIFE IS ETERNAL!

When you want to enjoy the fruit of action know that life is eternal. When it comes to hope, you should know that there are many lifetimes. When you are looking for results, know that time is eternal. If someone doesn't thank you or takes advantage of you, thank them because they will pay you back later with interest. So no one needs to feel sorry that they have been taken advantage of or unappreciated. Know that they will have to be paying you back in the future with interest! When it comes to enjoying the fruit of your actions, good deeds or even blessings, know that life is eternal. Anytime that you are in a hurry, you cannot enjoy. So know that life is eternal.

  4. I'm more of a subscriber to the life is short idea, but I also procrastinate a lot. I have a feeling that means I'm doing things wrong in two different ways!

  5. Hi.
    Yes I live Bangalore, and I am not connected to any of the Reebok trained instructors, though I do know a few of them, but not too well.
    I am a self taught Aerobics and Fitness Instructor, and have been teaching for the last 16 years.I started long before the Reebok people came to India, and I knew about the various training prgrammes available at that time itself in the West.
    Anyway I did attend 2or 3 workshops conducted by Reebok. I somehow felt I did not need any more training or the need to be a certified Instructor.
    I am really happy to see you do so well in your life.
    Apart from Aerobics,I also teach Reiki,which i have been practicing for the last 15 years, and I also write.
    Recently i had the chance to write a very short story in this site as a guest writer, you may like to read it and write your opinion in the comment box given at the end of the story.
    Regarding "time", i thought you might like to read what i had written about it in my blog,"Time, Time....I have all the time" on June 8th 2010. Read it also and let me know your views.
    So now that you know something about me,share something about yourself too.
    Bye, Rama.
