A Closing Thought

   The following is from the Journal of Humanistic Psychology written by an eighty-five year old man who just learned he was going to die.

    "If I had my life to live over again, I'd try to make more mistakes next time, try not to be so damn perfect.   I'd relax more, I'd limber up, I'd be sillier than I'd been on this trip.   In fact, I know very few things I would take so seriously.   I'd be crazier and I'd certainly be less hygienic.   I'd take more chances, take more trips, climb more mountains, swim more rivers and watch more sunsets.   I'd burn more gasoline, eat more ice cream, and fewer beans.   I'd have more actual troubles and fewer imagined ones, because ninety percent of things we worry about actually never happen.

   See, I was one of those people who lived taking every precaution to avoid life's mishaps.....insanely, hour after hour, day after day.   Oh. that doesn't mean I didn't have my moment; but if I had to do it all over again, I'd have more of those moments.   In fact, I'd try to have nothing but wonderful moments side by side.   Living in the now, not missing the now, because that's what life really is, a wonderful series of nows.   Not tomorrows, they never come; not yesterdays, they are gone; there is nothing you can do about them.  So you made a mistake, so tough.   But between you and me right at this moment, don't you know.    I was one of those people who never went anywhere without a thermometer, hot water bottle, gargle, rain coat and a parachute.

   If I had to do it all over again, I'd travel lighter next time.   If I had my life to live over again, I'd start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall.   I'd play hookey more, ride more merry-go-rounds, smell more flowers, hug more children, I'd tell more people that I love them.   If I had my life to live over again.....But you see, I don't.   You know, I have a strong feeling that this wonderful quality of humaneness with all of its wonders is God's gift to you and what you do with it is your gift to God.    Don't satisfy yourself with anything less than offering God the perfect gift that you are and have a blast doing it."           John D.
