This was copied over from my other blog. I think that it will be great to share with you what I experienced in December 2006.
We are now in Teenstreet, enjoying ourselves with the Teens (or should I say stressing ourselves, well actually enjoying cause we are having a break from everything and just playing and doing crazy fun stuff).
Ironically, we are learning about METAMORPHOSIS @ Teenstreet. Something which we have been talking so much about at ICAN lately. Transformation (Change) from caterpillar to butterfly.
Here we are learning about CHOICES and CHANGE. And to my surprise, I wrote my goals for ITP 3 weeks ago and in one section, I had to write down my two biggest learning experiences and I wrote about the importance of MAKING CHOICES and CHANGES.
It is so true that in life, it is about making RIGHT CHOICES. Here we were told of two trees – Tree of Life and Tree of Death.
Often we are all tempted to do things which bring us to the Tree of Death. Initially, the things we do maybe seem good but the root is bad. But the most important thing is to know that when YOU KNOW it’s the WRONG CHOICE, Make the CHANGE and Move FORWARD. Dont beat yourself up, ask for forgiveness from anyone you might have hurt along the way because of your WRONG CHOICE – RECONCILE and CHANGE.
Another thing we learnt here is about BEING and not DOING. We are called HUMAN BEING not HUMAN DOING. Isnt that so true? But so many of us are just DOING and DOING and DOING and some even DOING without knowing why they are DOING what they are DOING.
We are called HUMAN BEING. So BE….
BE, DO and HAVE. BE the person you are supposed to be (BELIEVE and ACT) and Do (Take Action) and you will HAVE.
I’ve also learnt this in Money & You and books that I have read. Seems like this is what my Creator wants me to learn and impart to all of you.
Hope you have enjoyed reading this.
