“Life’s too short, and life’s too long
To sell my days ‘til my days are done.
Gonna dance my dance and sing my song;
I know that life’s too short….and life’s too long.”
I so love this song by Daniel Nahmod. (It’s on his CD entitled “Fire” and is available in the Church bookstore.)
To me, “selling my days” means settling for less than what I really want to experience.
As you know, our teaching looks at Jesus as the great example, not the great exception, because He said “greater than these things will you do.” While obviously the Bible did not chronicle every experience He ever had or ever move He made, we know that there is nowhere in the Bible where He experienced lack or struggle. He did what He came here to do.
Contrary to popular belief, we didn’t come here to pay bills. We came here learn what we need to learn, to do what we need to do, and to make a difference. We can’t do that if we are bogged down in old stuff, dealing with health challenges, trying to figure out how to pay the rent.
All the possibility for releasing our old limiting beliefs is in this moment. That’s what we do on Sunday mornings, and in our classes during the week.
There will never be a better time to accept the joy and passion that Life (and life) has for us. I choose joy and passion. Don’t you?
