Paradox Of Life.

by Patrick Liew on February 19, 2014

Humanity is known to swing from one extreme to another.

Every one of us is capable of switching from one polarity to a diametrically opposite polarity in life.

We complain about a lack of time but we waste time on many unnecessary activities.

We long to be rich but we spend a lot of money on non-essentials.

We know importance of being healthy but we do not avoid putting junk food into our mouth. We do not avoid living a sedentary lifestyle.

We wish for happiness but we seldom change our attitude or pursue activities to raise happiness level.

We want to be wise but we do not push ourselves to pursue knowledge and apply it diligently in life.

We hope to have more friends but we do not strive harder to become a better friend and stretch out our hands of friendship.

We love to have a happy family life but we hardly spend enough quality time to build it.

We desire job satisfaction and fulfillment but we do not focus on initiating action and making things happened in the workplace.

We pursue the brightest future but we do not learn vigorously from the darkest of our past.

We expect others to set their life right but we are not fully committed to living life in the right way.

We seek deeper meanings and a higher purpose but we are not completely prepared to change and live on a higher plane in life.

Perhaps, the reason for the paradox is because we do not control our body but our body controls us.

We are not a master of our mind but we are a slave to it.

We do not direct our heart but our heart directs us.

We do not take charge of life but life takes charge of us.

The Bible counsels us to come to a moment of truth.

A moment when we must acknowledge that we are not leading life but life is leading us down a less-than-desired path.

In that moment of truth, we decide to cede control of our life and invite our Creator to take charge of our life.

As the Creator of love, He will help us live up to our highest potential.

He will help us navigate every unpredictable twist and turn in our life and through it all, help us live life at its best.

When we choose to walk with our Creator through the journey of life, we will be able to rise up to our highest calling and achieve fulfillment in life.

Please don’t tap on human resources. We can only achieve what humans can achieve.

Tap on Higher Intelligence. We will enjoy infinite power.
