What would you do if this happened to you?

It was a Zen moment.  Nearing the end of my walk, I looked straight at the highway ahead and asked,

“What does the world need?”

If the question was a trick horse then the answer was the rider vaulting onto it’s back…that’s how quick it was.

“Everything money can’t buy”

I laughed at the suddenness of it all.  It fit.  It was a recurring theme – everything money can’t buy.

So my question today is, What would you do if this happened to you?

You were the one who asked the question, or perhaps had the thought of it escape you…and then HEARD very distinctly this answer:

“Everything money can’t buy!”

What would you do?

How would you interpret this in your own circumstances?

Would you do anything differently or would this validate the course you are already on?

Many people count their blessings.  Willy Nelson said his whole life changed when he started counting his blessings.  So on the theme of counting,  What are the things money can’t buy?

Here’s my short list:

love/truth/words/creativity/joy/kindness

I guess the things we cannot buy are the things we cannot “own”.

 Isn’t it amazing how the things we cannot buy (own) are our best gifts to give to others.

I leave you with this little project to answer.   

What you would do if this happened to you?

AND

 if you want to count or make a list.  

I hope you will comment on this here and I will leave you with a quote from my friend Grace.

                        “Everything in life that has value

                         cannot be bought,

                         it can only be exchanged.”

                                                  Grace Winnifred Joy

This is what I wrote when I first started here…

Hi and welcome.  This site is under construction.  Right now there is lots of snow and cold so I expect to have extra time provided my satellite connection allows me to work here.  Right now I’m on wi-fi at the Moose.

I will leave you with one of my quotes to digest.

“Love rules – all ways!”
