Life Goals and Values

on May 16, 2014

I choose the following goals and values:

GOALS:
1. God Union; to be one with God
2. Love all beings and all situations
3. Be debt free
4. Reconcile with anyone I feel opposed to
5. RECOGNIZE the true needs of others
6. Develop the SKILLS to meet the true needs of others
7. Ease human suffering
8. Integrate my life with nature
9. Simplify my life

VALUES:
1. LOVE
2. Honesty
3. Authenticity
4. Self Discipline
5. Generosity
6. Usefulness
7. Simplicity
8. Efficiency
9. Faith in God
10. Self Appreciation
11. Gratitude

These life goals and values were first published in 2011 in a myspace blog, a service that myspace discontinued.  As I repost them now, in 2014, I’m happy to say that I am now debt free!  My life is much simpler, more integrated with nature and my ability to recognize the needs of others, meet those needs and ease human suffering has noticeably improved.  My ability to forgive, to the point that I can even hug people who I’ve had an intense conflict with, has also improved.  I feel God’s presence in my life more than ever.  Both when I close my eyes and look within, but also during my daily routines.  I find myself in the right place at the right time very often, and the purpose of my life work is more clear every month.  Although my path has been full of storms, it is moving forward in the correct direction and is being graced with deeper states of stillness.  An additional specific goal that comes to mind as I post this article is to spend more time providing holistic humanitarian work to those most in need on this planet.
