A person who is sleeping can be woken up.
A person who is pretending to sleep cannot be woken up.
The worst and the most significant lies are those which we tell ourseleves.
The worst actions are the ones that we take, all the while knowing that our soul does not want it.
The worst thougths are those which tell us that we deserve something less than the best that life has to offer.
The worst words are those which we speak knowing that they will offend someone who truly cares.
And even if you do all of these things, you still remain a worthy, good human being - yet become worthless in your own eyes. You become like a street drug peddler, who looks shiftily in every direction, aware of the dangers, on the lookout for an opportunity to make a sale, all the while knowing that what he is doing is wrong, yet doing it because he does not know any better. The street drug peddler, if he could forget himself for a moment, is a wonderful, magnanimous, great human being. So are we. If only we could forget ourselves.
No matter what your age, sex or circumstances, you are mostly made up of unused potential.
Life does not become great or beautiful by philosophizing about it. Life does not become great by listening to preachers or reading manuscripts of wisdom. Life does not become great by making yourself feel good about how great you are. Life becomes what it is because of a simple word. HABIT.
Your present moment of NOW is the only time in which you are alive. In which you will ever be alive. Your present moment of NOW is dictated by habit. Your life is nothing but a cumulative sum of your present moments.
Finally, a quote sums up what I have to say...
Life is measured not by the number of breaths you take, but by the number of moments that take your breath away.
