Going Deeper ~ ~ Know Your Life Values ~ ~ Your Truth
Gentle people: Today is a good day to focus on what you value most in life.
What are the ideals, morals, and principles . . . the TRUTHS by which you
choose to live?
If you make a list, it might include things like:
freedom family education world peace civil rights
love compassion faith spirituality beauty wealth
truth prayer diversity women’s rights simplicity God
fame wisdom fun openness human rights reading
solitude the Arts health learning connections with others
time for oneself personal development study animal rights
worship creativity care for the environment
Go ahead and make a random list of things that come to mind.
Everything is acceptable here.
After you’ve made a list, draw a circle around 5 of these that you think
are most significant to your life. Then, on another sheet of paper draw
a large circle. Thinking of this circle as a clock. Add in the approximate time each day, or week, that you devote to these 5 life values. In the remaining space note where you actually spend your time.
I find it’s important to reflect upon our life values every year because
they really do change. I used to spend most of my time on my health –
trying to find ways to recover from diazinon poisoning. Then I realized I was missing out on LIFE. There was so much I could still do even with
limited health, and that was even more healing!
It’s also easy to get distracted from what we really value in life and get stuck on a path that leads us away from who we truly are.
Are you living the things you value most in life?
May you be guided to know the truth about yourself.
With grace and peace to you,
