In retirement: Letting go of the old, following the breadcrumbs leading to the new.


Seize the opportunity life offers, my friend
Otherwise life can become very small.
Broaden your horizons, look beyond what your eye can see.
For the familiar can be enticing and warm the cockles of your heart
But the status quo can be deadening
And life draining rather than sustaining.
Breaking out of the mold of your usual
Can be challenging, sometimes frightening
But it rides a fine line with excitement
Fueling a new aliveness, where sensations are heightened
Passions are ignited and unexpected chance happenings
Produce extraordinary moments that could not have been planned.
So be bold my friend, aim at the moon, catch a star
And dream big, 
Keep your eyes and ears open
Your antennae up and  turned on
To catch that opportunity with your name on it.
For this is your life and you are the author.

This poem reflects the wisdom of age; it is the Sage speaking.
Reviewed by Ann Ingman (Reader) 6/17/2011

There is nothing that you're wanting to know that you do not have the capacity to understand fully. And there is nothing that you're wanting to know that the Universe does not already know that you want to know, and has already begun the process of answering. And so, go forth in excited anticipation that the new ideas will continue to bubble forth, and that the Universal Forces will continue to come forth in loving, benevolent, eternal answering to that which you are about.

Everything that is today could not be if it were not for that which was before.

--- Abraham
