I want to give a couple of shout-outs first to my follower Bel and to my Washington state tribe. I appreciate them, growing and sharing the podcast with their friends and family. Let’s get into Your Amazing Life.

I want to start with a quote, this was posted on Reddit byu/mylasttie wrote “We care so much about the health and integrity of our body that until death, we don’t notice that the body is nothing more than a box- a parcel for delivering our personality, thoughts, beliefs, and intentions to this world. If there is nothing in the box that can change the world, then it doesn’t matter if it disappears. I believe we all have potential, but it takes a lot of courage to realize it.” I love this thought. I love the Epiphany behind it. This kind of takes me back to Memorial Day. I have a tradition of going to the cemetery and putting out flags on the graves of veterans. As I walked around and read the gravestones, I was hit by what people put on gravestones. Many had not only the birth and death dates but the number of years they lived. If it was 6, 36, or 106 that tells so little of a person. Then this was one that I just haven’t figured out. On the headstone, it stated “world-class marketer.” Really that was the most important thing about his life? It reminded me of putting your face and name on a park bench. Now he’s marketing to those visiting the dead. What is it that you are doing with this box while you have it?

I want to share a poem by Ron Tranmer called The Dash Between. “I knelt there at the headstone of one I love and cried. The Names, with dates of birth and death, were perfectly inscribed. I pondered these two dates and how little they both mean when compared to the tiny dash that lies there in between. The dash serves as an emblem of our time here on the earth, and although small, it stands for all our years of life, and worth. And our worth will be determined by how we live each day. We can fill our dash with goodness, or waste our life away. To ourselves, as well as others, let’s be honest, kind, and true, and every day, live the way we know God wants us to. May we look for opportunities to do a worthy deed, and reach out with compassion to those who are in need. For If our hearts are full of love throughout our journey here, we’ll be loved by all who knew us and our memory they’ll hold dear. And when we die, these memories will bring grateful, loving tears, to all whose lives were touched.” What will be left behind in your dash? Cause the dash that is what is important. The dates will come and go with or without us. But what is it that is in the box that made a difference for someone else? This is a much-needed message for this time. There are so many people out there in this world filling their dash up with amazing actions. Some who are young and saved others from car fires or kidnapping, another Nicholas Winton who died at age 106 back in 2015, among other things in his dash he saved 669 children from the holocaust. There are many that we look at and we admire what they did with their dash.  Those like Nicholas Winton learned pretty early on that his body was just a box or parcel. If its only job is to deliver our personality, thoughts, and beliefs to this world. How is your body doing? Do your ideas, thoughts, get shared with the world? How many people have you saved? It may have been as easy as reaching out and saying hello and wishing someone a good day. Probably you have no idea how many you saved and that is okay. What is important is that you try each day to save at least one person. It is important that you use your body to share your personality. If you intend to make a difference in the life of someone and you act on your intent you will be able to see it fulfilled. 

We have talked about the importance of nutrition in many of our episodes. I have found a clinically proven product that I drink one packet a day and it gives my body all the micronutrients I need. This is an all-natural product you will love. The packet is filled with superfoods and all their nutrients. Best of all it comes with a 100% Money back guarantee, so there is no risk. Many doctors are now recommending this. Start your day as I do with a packet of nutrition. You are going to want to try this.

We are talking about the body and how it is just a parcel. Its importance is its ability to deliver our personality, thoughts, and beliefs to this world. What matters isn’t when we come to this earth nor when we leave it. What matters is what we do with the in-between of those dates. What do we pursue? Do we get out the message that is inside of you? If we die with the message still inside there is no bigger waste. If there is nothing in you that gets out to change the world then you have failed. If your body’s job is to deliver personality, thoughts, and beliefs to this world How do you accomplish that?

Well, some of it depends on why you are here and what is important to you. But we are going to start with some things that are universal. First off is to find joy. You can find joy in following the natural laws of this earth. Natural laws are laws that are outside of morals and mores. They are outside of religion. They are based on this universe and it is impossible to refute them. It doesn’t matter whether or not you believe in gravity, it works. It doesn’t matter if you believe in the law of attraction, it works. Just like all the other natural laws. I will list a couple but there are many more. There are laws of Karma, attraction, forgiveness, and receiving. These are just a few that I choose. They are not the only ones, nor are they the most important. They are just examples to get you thinking along the same lines. Successful people become successful by applying natural law. True joy comes from following these laws. Let us say we don’t follow the law of Karma and we treat someone poorly. When we then are treated in a way that karma extends, we will not be joyful. Following natural laws brings us joy.

The second universal truth is service. We are built as a group to be part of a family. We desire those ties. The way to strengthen those ties is through service. It doesn’t matter who you serve. It doesn’t matter where you serve. It only matters that you serve. You will learn to love and care for those that you serve. You will be paid dividends that you never expected from your service. Check out Just Serve.org to find service opportunities near you that can help you to do good and feel good. We as human beings we build unity through community service. We are in need of unity in the world today. The answer to some of our problems is service to one another. When you serve others both you and the person you served are blessed.  

The next universal truth is gratitude. Showing gratitude changes our lives so much. It is a simple act but it makes such a large change. Gratitude is a state of mind. It is the cornerstone of living a mindful life. Gratitude is a tool that helps you to achieve happiness, peace, and wellbeing. Gratitude becomes an offering to anything that you believe in. Gratitude is about paying it forward. Sociologist Georg Simmel calls this act “the moral memory of mankind” in his book. Here are some ways to practice gratitude. Start a gratitude journal or jar, write a letter to someone sharing what you are grateful for. Gratitude is an important tool to maintaining optimal mental physical and emotional health. 

It is important to find out what the dash in the middle is about for you. Maybe it will be marketing for you just like the guy’s headstone. Just make sure that you use marketing to get out your story. To get out your personality, thoughts, beliefs, and intentions to this world. I didn’t get it but I hope he did. I hope the dash was meaningful to him and I hope yours is meaningful to you. 

If you are like the many others who struggle with the meaning and the reason you are here. If you are tired of suffering; If you want to struggle less and enjoy more. If you want a truly amazing life that is connected and complete, you need the “you have value program” If you are willing to make some changes, be kind to yourself. I would love to help you to create who you are actually capable of becoming.  Contact me, ken@creatingyouramazing.life.
