Claiming Victory in 2013 – January 10th, 2013, by Danny J. Stevens

“Cowards die many times before their deaths:
The Valiant never taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard,
It seems to me most strange that men should fear;
Seeing that death, a necessary end,
Will come when it will come.”
~ William Shakespeare

To not live the life we were meant to live would be to lead a life of cowardice. Something either is bothering us about stepping out or is holding us back. Even if it is just slothfulness which I doubt that is the case. Have you ever had the talk with the person in the mirror? Some call this a Dickens moment. This is where you see where you could have been but are not. You see what you might have been but did not act. Each time we deny the urge to act on our goals, dreams and destiny we die to ourselves and to humanity as it robs us of our spirit, our ability to dream and our ability to envision the future. In the Christian bible, Proverbs, 29:18 it states, “Where there is no vision, the people perish…” A life unfulfilled is a life filled with many regrets. With each instance a part of us dies.

Living to your calling, your purpose your spirit fills you with life at the moment. There are no regrets, disappointment or discouragement. Does this mean you will live forever? We are all given that we are born and that we shall die. Depending on your beliefs and faith death may have different meaning. For many death is a transitioning to another life. The facts are that the body will eventually cease to function which is death of the body. Spirit however, again depending on your belief it may be different, but from my beliefs the Spirit will continue. The Egyptians, Mayans and many cultures that I known about have a belief which is some variant of belief that the spirit travels to the spirit world. The Vikings believed in Vahalla part of the home of the Norse Gods in Asgard. Every culture has a version of this belief. A singer / comedian Jim Stafford stated he was a Fresbiterian. He believed when you die your souls goes on top the roof and you can not get it down. I needed to end this dialog on a lighter note.

Live your life with the expectation of giving it everything you have got. Don’t let temporary set backs become stumbling stones. Refuse to quit! Refuse to lose! It is your life, how do you want it proceed? You may ask how do I know what my purpose is? You may have been praying for a long time for signs or something to let you know why you are here. Neal Donald Walsch I believe has put this in the most understandable way. This is not an exact quote but he states something like, your purpose is whatever you make it to be. You create your purpose. Taking a look at your dreams and vision and what gives you peace, joy and happiness is likely where your purpose will be. Moving and putting things in to action your purpose will be uncovered but you have to get moving.
