The importance of values
The value of a human being can be measured by what he or she most deeply wants
Be free of possessing things
Sit at an empty table
Be pleased with water, the taste of being at home
What do we live for?
What do we live towards?
For Finn, the dog
Life is easy
Food, walk, ball, stick
He lives to run, to chew sticks, to eat
And to love and be loved
Not bad if you think about it?!
What do I live towards?
What do I most deeply want?
It makes a difference
What it really value determines everything
How I spend my time
How I see people
How I treat people
What produce comes from the tree of this life
Our values set our path
They are our compass point
Heading into this New Year, my question for myself is simple
What do I value? What drives my best actions
My second question is also simple
What am I going to do today to live toward my values?
What am I going to do that will take me further along
My values path?
I’ll work on that
Right after I take happy dog for his walk
