[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Thank you Hal

There's an 'interactive-mind' and a 'universal-mind'.
The 'interactive-mind' -- accessed through your head-brain -- is the
collection of memories and opinions . . . the known territories of the old
all jumbled together. With this mind running your life, there's zero
inspiration from achieving anything new. This mind fills time with
attractive distractions; being busy protecting territories, but never
exploring the unknown Yogi Singh

Someone I admired a great deal died last night, I spoke to him the morning,
we had a lovely conversation and decided to meet next week. The
conversation ended with me saying I will call you back either later today
or on Monday to confirm the time to meet Then he died

When I got the news I thought about how I did not call him back yesterday.
How many times have I said I would do something and didn't I thought about his work in rebuilding communities and how much he loved
his country I said I will not let his work be in vain, I cannot- how many people give
their lives to a cause to better their communities no matter what? He was
one Taking what the status quo would call risks, always finding a way to
explore the unknown without worrying about what happened in the past. I
really admired him and will do my best to continue the great work he has
started I have been blessed to have known him - a true patriot! Thank you Hal! Peace
