A Guide to Good Living – A Creed to Live By

A Guide to Good Living - A Creed to Live By:Live with Intention

Picture: beautiful and deserted Wainui beach, Gisborne, East Coast , New Zealand…a place where I often get my dose (“fill”) of upliftment and inspiration

A Guide to Good Living – A Creed to Live By:

“Don’t judge others (as you haven’t stood in their shoes)
treat everyone with respect (and especially their right to hold certain beliefs)
listen hard and speak less (why we were born with two ears and one mouth)
practice wellness and well-being
play with abandon
don’t take life too seriously (fall in love with yourself and ensure a life-long romance)
laugh (often and especially at yourself)
choose your life path with no regrets
continue to learn (we’re never too old along life’s amazing journey)
appreciate your friends and especially family
do what you love (then you’ll never have to do a day’s work in your life)
and that will ensure success
live generously (not with you don’t have , but with what you DO have) in an attitude, a spirit of gratitude
live with intention and faith
(be bold and unseen forces come to one’s aid)
walk to the edge in total commitment

accept that life is a challenge (huge at times)
so treasure it
then submit to God, the mystery of life, the Ground of All Being
live as if this is all there is.
simply doing your very best and let God do the rest”
– craig (as adapted from and inspired by mary ann radmacher)

 

“Until you walk a mile in another man’s moccasins you can’t imagine the smell.”
– Robert Byrne.

Life is far too important (a subject) to be taken seriously)

“I want to write the way Gilles Villeneuve drove and slid his blood -red Formula One Ferrari… with wild enthusiasm, a sense of abandonment and youthful exuberance, yet also with the artists craft of a Stirling Moss, a Jim Clark, and especially an Ayrton Senna, living on the razor-blade edge of life.”

    MANY MORE COMMENTS OVERNIGHT (many thousands already on this blog (and hundreds of thousands on my other blogs – true!). So hope it’s not slowing down your loading speed!)
    Am having to remove many and so sorry can’t reply individually, but DO try to read as many as possible daily
    so “thanks for the thanx”

    “As we live and move and have our being, so from this vision, we create heaven in our own lives… and perhaps even heaven on earth.”

    – craig (as inspired by Acts 17:28 and the words of Felicia Searcy)

    “Aim at the earth and you may not get off the ground.

    “Aim at the stars and you may reach the moon.”

    “Aim at heaven and you’ll have earth thrown in…

    and you may even hit the stars.”

    – craig (as inspired by the famous quote by CS Lewis – 24th May 2012)

    “When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
    – Leonardo da Vinci

    “If a man is called to be a street-sweeper,

    he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,

    or Beethoven composed music, or

    Shakespeare wrote poetry.

    He should sweep streets so well

    that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,

    here lived a great street sweeper

    who did his job well.”

    – Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Thanks for the follow/link/like/reblog/comment and/or kind thought(s)

    Hi

    CAN’T KEEP UP…BUT THANKS FOR THE “THANX”
    I’ve had many many hundreds of thousands (“zillions”) of comments on my various other WordPress blogs at https://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2011/09/09/craigs-list-of-blogs-updated-sept-2011/
    in recent years …true!) …obsessive or WHAT! Am really pleased you are enjoying my writings, as the reason I write is to share. However I am unable to keep up with the comments and was spending entire days just on replies on my various blog pages.

    Though I’m rather “driven”, I still get really, really fatigued (there’s a few books there). so sorry can’t reply individually to all you good people scattered around the planet, but DO try to read as many as possible daily (and even moderate a few when I get a “mo”), I got swamped with comments on my various blogs, so have had to close them off on all of my blogs, except for one or two of particular interest to me – sorry and hope you can understand.

    * “Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.”

    ~ Franz Kafka

    I do really appreciate your liking, linking to and/or following this blog (and “writing in”), so “thanks for the thanx”

    “When (or if ever) you arrive in heaven, let faith, hope and love be the wings that carried you there.”

    – as adapted from the inspiring words of Jonathan Edwards, former minister in New England, Massachusetts

    – c

    “Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of life one that ANYONE can run and win.”

    “I wish you well on a rainy day
    I wish you rainbows to brighten your day
    To feel your quiet moments with a special kind of warmth
    to remind you that happiness can happen
    when you least expect it.

    I wish you rainbows to make you laugh and smile
    to show you the simple beauty of life
    and to give you the magic of dreams come true.

    I wish you rainbows
    I wish you well.”

    – Larry S. Chengges

    ”Since I can never see your face,

    And never shake you by the hand,

    I send my soul through time and space

    To greet you. You will understand.”
