“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”
– Mother Theresa
Life is worth fighting for － not just physical life, but spiritual life too. To be sure, the world is fraught with impediments to creative expression, little and large dragons that are poised to devour the finer things being born through you.
Forget about genuine misunderstandings! Heartless criticisms, petty jealousies, twisted interpretations, groundless accusation and violent persecution and a host of other focused and coordinated forces will seek to destroy any new release of brilliant newness at every turn. As such, you must take great care to create an inviolate space that is free of judgment, false humility and false piety where that which you create can mature until it is sufficiently strong to stand on its own.
That inviolate space begins in your heart and mind. Once established it flows outward in blessing to the world around you. If you react to how it is received (it is just as likely to be trampled upon as it is to be met with open arms), the flow will stop almost instantaneously. If you learn to remain steady and to trust the process, the inexhaustible fountain of blessing within you will continue to overflow from within outward, in blessing to your world.
There will be bright and easy times, but there will also be difficult and dark times. You may have to fight for your life differently in each, but fight you must. The laws of living are the laws of eternal progress and there is no rest for those who give up, give in and collapse in a heap of futility and self-pity.
Life is worth fighting for － not just physical life, but spiritual life too. Keep going, precious friend. Move forward, push onward, rise upward. Relax into the knowledge that you are good enough, strong enough, ready and able to live life as it was meant to be lived. You are not here just to get by or to simply survive. You are here to LIVE and I have faith in you!
“Life is life, fight for it!“
