      BE COMMITTED TO KEEPING YOUR LIFE IN BALANCE by Denis Waitley

      It is so important to be living in prime time, rather than watching TV in prime time. On your way to success make certain you grow friendships, not just bank and mutual fund accounts. Life is a collection of memories, not of material things. The Egyptian pharaohs were buried with all their treasures, and were mummified in hopes that they could enjoy their bounty in the next life. But we are only caretakers of possessions. There is a big difference between standard of living and quality of life. Standard of living is based on income earned. Quality of life is the enjoyment of the millions of minutes in between accomplishments.

      Having money is only one aspect of wealth. To the sick person, wealth is health. To the lonely person, wealth is someone to talk to and share with. To the estranged person, wealth is hearing words of love and forgiveness.

      Borrowing the free verse style from Brother Jeremiah's classic poem, I'd Pick More Daisies, here are a few things I'd do, the second time around

      Remember always that you are just a visitor here, a traveler passing
      through. your stay is but short and the moment of your departure
      unknown.
      None can live without toil and a craft that provides your needs is a
      blessing indeed. But if you toil without rest, fatigue and wearness
      will overtake you, and you will denied the joy that comes from
      labour's end.
      Speak quietly and kindly and be not forward with either opinions or
      advice. If you talk much, this will make you deaf to what others
      say, and you should know that there are few so wise that they cannot
      learn from others.
      Be near when help is needed, but far when praise and thanks are
      being offered.
      Take small account of might, wealth and fame, for they soon pass and
      are forgotten. Instead, nurture love within you and and strive to be
      a friend to all. Truly, compassion is a balm for many wounds.
      Treasure silence when you find it, and while being mindful of your
      duties, set time aside, to be alone with yourself.
      Cast off pretense and self-deception and see yourself as you really
      are.
      Despite all appearances, no one is really evil. They are led astray
      by ignorance. If you ponder this truth always you will offer more
      light, rather then blame and condemnation.
      You, no less than all beings have Buddha Nature within. Your
      essential Mind is pure. Therefore, when defilements cause you to
      stumble and fall, let not remose nor dark foreboding cast you down.
      Be of good cheer and with this understanding, summon strength and
      walk on.
      Faith is like a lamp and wisdom makes the flame burn bright. Carry
      this lamp always and in good time the darkness will yield and you
      will abide in the Light.
      Dhammavadaka
