Week 18 with MKMMA

This week we are supposed to read obituaries from newspapers, asking of ourselves 3 questions.

   a. What would that person give to change places with me and have just one more day?

   b. Who can I let know how grateful I am for their presence today?

   c. How will I behave today to finish the masterpiece of my life elegantly?

Profound questions, reminding us that we are each a Great Miracle of Nature, and live up to the promise and not just fade into the background.

During reading the GS scroll V, I see the connection between these questions and the real world obituaries and how if we haven’t lived each day as it were our last, living in the now, being a part of the lives of those close to us, we might just slip away with little regard from others, as if we were meaningless. 

I have also observed that these lessons are intended to help us overcome our fear of death, because when we do, we are free to live in the NOW, for we do not know when it will be our turn to pass on. So we should not waste our precious days, as every moment of our limited time here is indeed precious. Not living in the past, or worrying about the future, instead we need to focus on being an integral, positive, enthusiastic, loving influence in the people surrounding us.

I now see the real purpose of the Franklin Makeover. It is to remind us of these virtues that we all possess, but may have forgotten or pushed aside during our struggles to provide for our families, or “Get ahead”. By focusing on each virtue we are re-introducing these into the core of our being.

Never be afraid to tell those close you, I Love You.

Peace and Aloha, Steve
