Living a Life of Wonder

Submitted by Stephen Winters
Is This Life Horrible or Wonderful?
In this life, what you look for is what you will find.
If you are looking for what is miserable and awful,
    that is what you will find, a world that is miserable and awful,
      filled with every dreaded thing
 
If you look for what is wonderful and awe-inspiring,
    that is what you will find, a world that is wonderful and awe-inspiring,
      filled with all the delights and wonders of this.

A Spotless Life, A Beginning.

As I look around me, my house is a mess, my workshop is a mess, the yard is a mess. In the past I have cleaned up this or that, only to have it become a mess again in a very short time. Each time I did the cleaning, I didn't change anything about be, or how I have related to the environment and my surroundings. I've heard it said that the first thing to change is to admit that there is a problem. More than that is to admit my part of the problem. For much of my life I've been a messer-upper. I have not contributed to improving myself or my surroundings in a consistant ongoing manner.

A Spotless Life

What does it mean to live a spotless life? Is it even possible? In this article, I will attempt to answer this question as best as I can for myself. This will be an ongoing article that I may keep adding to and revising as I learn more. This article was prompted by, and inspired by, my (what I hope to be) series of blog post about living a spotless life.

Living A Spotless Life

This morning I was in the kitchen looking at our black gas range. It is a constant struggle to keep it clean. As I cook I am constantly dropping or drisling small specks of food on the rangetop. Even in my cleaning it is hard for me to get all the specks off of it. It seems that I'm constantly dropping tiny specks on it and it seems almost impossible to keep clean. I've wished for a multi-colored surface that wouldn't show the dirt and specks.

What do I know?

In my life there have been times when I so wanted others to agree with me or to acknowlege that I was right or that I had the answers.
However, the further along I get in this journey of life I get, the more I realize how little I do know. And it is becoming less important to me that everyone (or anyone) agrees with me, or thinks that I am right. It is also less important to me that I know that I am right. I just try to do the best I can and try to do the right thing, with the facts and situations in life as I see them from my limited perspective.
