The great paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings
but shorter tempers; wider freeways but narrower viewpoints; we spend more
but have less; we buy more but we enjoy less.
We have bigger houses but smaller families; more conveniences but less
time; more degrees but less sense; more knowledge but less judgment; more
experts, yet more problems; more medicine but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little,
drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, read too little, watch TV
too much, pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions but reduced our values, we talk too
much but listen too little, love too seldom, and hate too often. We've
learned how to make a living but not a life. We've added years to life but
not life to years.
We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the
street to meet a new neighbour; we've conquered outer space but not the
inner space; we've done larger things but not better things.
We've cleaned up the air but polluted the soul; we've conquered the atom
but not our prejudice; we write more but learn less; we plan more but
accomplish less; we've learned to rush but not to wait. We've built more
computers to hold more information to produce more copies than ever, but
we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast food and slow digestion; big men and small
character; steep profits and shallower relationships. These are the days
of two incomes but more divorces; fancier houses but broken homes. These
are the days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throw-away morality,
one-night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from
cheer to quiet to kill.
It is a time when there is much in the show window and nothing in the
stock room. A time where technology can bring this note to you, and a time
where you can choose to share this insight, or just hit delete.
Act upon now...
Remember, spend more time with
your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to
someone who looks up to you in awe, because soon that little person will
grow up and leave your side.
Remember to give a warm hug to
the one next to you because that is the only treasure you can give with
your heart that doesn't cost a cent.
Remember to say, 'I love you',
to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all...mean it. A kiss and
an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.
Remember to hold hands and
cherish the moment, for someday that person will not be there again.
Give time to love, give time
to speak, and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind. Life
is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that
take our breath awaiting till end of our life.
