Have a Magnificent Day!

Keep Your Fork

posted by The MEGA Coach

Keep Your ForkThere was a young woman who had been diagnosed with a terminal illness and had been given three months to live.
So as she was getting her things ‘in order,’ she contacted her Rabbi and had him come to her house to discuss certain aspects of her final wishes.  She told him which songs she wanted sung at the service, what scriptures she would like read, and what outfit she wanted to be buried in.  Everything was in order and the Rabbi was preparing to leave when the young woman suddenly remembered something very important to her.

‘There’s one more thing,’ she said excitedly.  ‘What’s that?’ came the Rabbi’s reply. ‘This is very important,’ the young woman continued. ‘I want to be buried with a fork in my right hand.’  The Rabbi stood looking at the young woman, not knowing quite what to say.  ‘That surprises you, doesn’t it?’ the young woman asked.  ‘Well, to be honest, I’m puzzled by the request,’ said the Rabbi.

The young woman explained.  ‘My grandmother once told me this story and from that time on I have always tried to pass along its message to those I love and those who are in need of encouragement.
In all my years of attending socials and dinners, I always remember that when the dishes of the main course were being cleared, someone would inevitably lean over and say, ‘Keep your fork.’  It was my favorite part because I knew that something better was coming…like velvety chocolate cake or deep-dish apple pie.  ‘Something wonderful, and with substance!’

‘So, I just want people to see me there in that casket with a fork in my hand and I want them to wonder’ What’s with the fork?’  Then I want you to tell them: ‘Keep your fork ..the best is yet to come.’

The Rabbi’s eyes welled up with tears of joy as he hugged the young woman good-bye.  He knew this would be one of the last times he would see her before her death.  But he also knew that the young woman had a better grasp of heaven than he did.  She had a better grasp of what heaven would be like than many people twice her age, with twice as much experience and knowledge.  She KNEW that something better was coming.

At the funeral people were walking by the young woman’s casket and they saw the cloak she was wearing and the fork placed in her right hand.  Over and over, the Rabbi heard the question, ‘What’s with the fork?’  And over and over he smiled.

During his message, the Rabbi told the people of the conversation he had with the young woman shortly before she died.  He also told them about the fork and about what it symbolized to her.  He told the people how he could not stop thinking about the fork and told them that they probably would not be able to stop thinking about it either.

He was right.  So the next time you reach down for your fork let it remind you, ever so gently, that the best is yet to come.

Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed.  They make you smile and encourage you to succeed.  Cherish the time you have, and the memories you share.  Being friends with someone is not an opportunity but a sweet responsibility.

The Most Powerful Force

posted by The MEGA Coach

acknowledgement IILove is the most powerful force in the universe and love is God’s gift and blessing to us. God’s unconditional love is always available, every moment.

By sharing our love and kindness with others we fulfill our highest potential.  Love is our natural essence and true legacy.  True service and caring for people is a form of love.

Life is a process, a journey full of lessons and growth.  It is an opportunity to actualize our divine potential.  Life is also a package deal, as there is duality to the universe – good and bad, happy and sad, healthy and sick, rich and poor, joy and sorrow, etc.

Everything is temporary except love.  Everything comes and goes except love.

“Kindness is a language that we all can understand. Even the blind can see it and the deaf can hear it.”
Mother Teresa

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
Patanjali

Small steps add up to big movements one step at a time.  Be patient and supportive of yourself.  Make a small change or learn something new every day and see how much you have grown in 30 days.

Be consistent, move gently and steadily in the same direction.

Are You Having Any Fun?

posted by The MEGA Coach

Pandas playingAre you having fun?
How good do you feel?
How often do you smile?

Enthusiasm is contagious.  No one can resist an enthusiastic person.

Energy is powerful.  It cannot be created or destroyed, but it can be focused and directed.  A positive attitude builds momentum in our thoughts, beliefs, words and deeds.

The better we think, the better we feel and the better we feel the better we think.  Good thoughts and feelings lead to better actions.

95% of our negative thoughts never happen.  Why waste time and energy being negative.  Let’s focus on positive and constructive thoughts and opportunities.  What would happen if we surrounded ourselves with uplifting, supportive, loving and fun people?

It’s wise to keep our energy, attitude, thoughts and words clear and positive.
The higher the vibration the better!

Energy attracts like energy so stay focused, positive and enthusiastic.

We Can Adapt to Anything

posted by The MEGA Coach

CameleonChameleons adapt to any environment and blend in.  They blend in so well they become almost invisible.  Chameleons are amazing creatures with special talents.

We too are blessed with the ability to transform and adapt to any situation, circumstance or environment.  We are flexible, creative and transformational.  Throughout history, mankind has adapted to incredible challenges and transcended death defying moments to succeed and thrive.

Regardless of the situation or circumstances, we are always growing.  We are constantly learning, developing and expanding our knowledge, experience and results.  There is one thing that usually changes slowly, if at all – our core principles and values.  They are strongly linked to our key belief systems.  It takes a major life event or experience to change core principles and values.

Healthy core principles are based on truth and natural law, yet sometimes we have established core principles based on emotional situations or incorrect or unclear perceptions.  It is important to discover these and correct them.  Our decisions and choices are based on our core principles and values, so it is essential that these core principles are in alignment with truth and the highest good.

We have a divine potential which is part of our divine design or divine plan of our life.  This is our highest and greatest potential and possibility.  

May you continue to grow, thrive and adapt.
May you live your most magnificent life possible!
