For a Great Life, Use 'The Four Stays':

Let's recommit ourselves to...
  1. Stay Hungry (to learn more, to grow more, to exercise more, and to do more)

  2. Stay Balanced (Do not let any one part of our lives take over for very long -- Get rest, fresh air, and a balance of purpose-driven activities every day)

  3. Stay Aware of Good Already in Life Every Moment (This is the Good we see and feel that motivates us, energizes us, and makes us glad to be alive)

  4. Stay Intensely Service Driven (As with all people, we have rare gifts that need to be developed and shared, and many deserving people need the help that ONLY WE can give)

Feeling So Awkward....
by: Laura Teresa Marquez

My love affair with Life has grown so much since I posted this quote. In a very unexpected way, I consider "feeling so awkward" as one of the greatest discoveries and treasures of my life. (Thank you to this website for the opportunity!) When I think about Life, Itself, intensely loving me -- sure there is gratitude and wonder, but "feeling so awkward" also captures the situation, with a feeling very much like that in any great love, only much better because the love is from Life, Itself.

Thank You Laura

Thank you for your contributions to this website. They are really appreciated, as is your comment. I am pleased that you too are deriving benefit from posting your philosophical thoughts.

I have a question. By 'feeling awkward', do you mean something like feeling humbled? Or do you mean feeling awkward in a shy, awkward, kind of way, like you're not sure how to respond to the love of Life?

It would be interesting to hear your experience of life after taking the free course in Conscious Mental Rest, explained on other pages of this site. :-)

Thank you Gavin for your question regarding my feeling of awkwardness.
Recently, I decided to be very quiet, and to strip away from my thought all I had ever known.
Soon, in the empty space, I felt the great love of Life for me. Then, I felt very awkward about receiving such great, effortless love.
First, I felt the awkwardness of being very vulnerable. I'm putting my heart way out here. And if, someday, someone convinces me that this "love" is just a fantasy of my imagination, it would be a major hurt in my life.
Yet, most of all, I felt the awkwardness of total, overwhelming surprise. Anne Murray captured this in the song lyrics, "I fumble and fall, run into the wall, 'cause when it comes to you, I'm...just a kid out of school, a fire out of control, just another fool."
Today, I am very close to believing that the love of Life for me is the only thing I need to be certain about, maybe even the only thing I can be certain about.
In any case, I hope this answers your question, and I am looking forward to doing the CMR Method.

Thanks Laura. That's beautiful
