Lessons to live by

"It's what you do in the present that will redeem the past and thereby change the future"

"I am here, I am the result of everything that happened and will happened, but I'm here.  If I did something wrong, I can put it right or at least ask forgiveness.  If I did something right, that leaves me happier and more connected with the now.  You've got to leave in order to return to the present"

"We simply have to trust hand follow the signs and live our Personal Legend; sooner or later we will realize that we are all part of something, even if we can't understand rationally what that something is. They say that the second before our death, each of us understands the reason for our existence, and out of that moment Heaven or Hell is born. 

Hell is when we look back during that fraction of a second and know that we wasted an opportunity to dignify the meaning of life. Paradise is being able to say at that moment: "I made some mistakes, but I wasn't a coward. I lived my life and did what I had to do."
