Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:
If you have established your priorities, identified your goals, and identified yourself with the power of your Silent Master, you are ready to make your aspirations come to life! In the next chapter, we look at the fourth stage of the Self Discovery process: rebirth, where you start living the truth of your real Self. Every challenge is an opportunity for rebirth into a new you. And victory is your birthright!
Here is an exercise to help you see where you have placed your priorities in your relationships. Let’s say you do have five days left to live. You have set aside at least one of these days to say goodbye to certain people – to relationships you presently have or have had in the past. First of all, who are these people you want to speak to at the end of your life? Children? Parents? Siblings? Spouse? Old friends? Co workers? And what will you say to them? Write your message to each of them, freely, honestly. Then look closely at what you say. Do your words indicate you may have missed knowing them altogether? Do your words indicate regrets? Anger? Unexpressed gratitude? Un-forgiven deeds? Words you’ve never said, but wish you had? Or is your goodbye filled with peace and love?
What do you discover about your attitudes in this exercise? What changes would you like to make?
