Prepare to Live

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 6:08 am

AliveLots of people are preparing to die. They make sure their insurance and will are in order, burial plot or cremation secured, organ donation detailed, and list the type of funeral gathering they desire. That is quite prudent and my guess is these folks make up a small percentage of the population.

Even less people are preparing to live.

If you don’t feel alive everyday, you are at death’s doorstep.

Feeling alive is recognizing the moment you are in and making the most of it. It won’t be coming around again, so take advantage of it while its here.

Seems we often withdraw from the moment we’re in to be somewhere else. That somewhere else is being in our head – a giant moment killer.

Participating in moments makes us feel alive and well. All else disappears when we engage in the moment. If you are having a conversation with someone and you go inside your head to rehearse what you are going to say, you’ve come out of that moment and, more importantly, lose the aliveness of connection with the other person.

I have no idea how long I’ll live. That decision is out of my hands. Deciding to live everyday of your life is a choice you can make. It starts with participating in life’s moments.

Big and small moments are labels that indicate a head trip. All moments, no matter how they are judged afterward, deliver equal amounts of life.

Prove it to yourself. Participate in more moments and measure you aliveness. What you’ll discover is that staying in your head keeps you in the dead zone. Coming out to play will make you feel alive everyday.

All the best,

John
