MY THOUGHT 14141
QUESTION 5388: ARE YOU READY TO MOVE ON WITH YOUR LIFE, OR ARE YOU ALLOWING FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO BE ANCHORS HOLDING BACK YOUR SOCIAL AND SPIRITUAL PROGRESS? EmilKoval©2018

QUESTION 5389: AS A SENIOR PARENT, HAVE YOU PREPARED YOUR CHILDREN TO LIVE THEIR OWN LIVES AFTER YOU HAVE PASSED? IF NOT, WHY NOT? EmilKoval©2018

QUESTION 5390: AS A SENIOR OR ELDERLY PERSON, WHICH EVER TERM YOU PREFER, ARE YOU PREPARED TO ACCEPT THE PASSING OF CLOSE FRIENDS AND LOVED-ONES AS TIME PASSES? WILL YOU MOURN YOUR LOSS, OR WILL YOU CELEBRATE THE LIVES THAT THEY HAVE LIVED? EmilKoval©2018

MY THOUGHT 14144
REMEMBER THAT: THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO ACCEPT YOUR ACTS OF KINDNESS, AND THERE ARE THOSE WHO FEEL IS NECESSARY TO PAY YOU BACK IN SOMEWAY. FOR THOSE WHO ACCEPT YOUR LITTLE ACTS OF KINDNESS, CONTINUE DOING SO WITH YOUR LOVE, COMPASSION, AND UNDERSTANDING. THE ONLY COMPENSATION YOU SHOULD REQUIRE IS THERE SMILE OF ACCEPTANCE. FOR THOSE WHO FEEL THEY MUST PAY YOU BACK FOR YOUR LITTLE ACTS OF KINDNESS, DO IT LESS FREQUENTLY OR OBVIOUSLY SO THAT THEY WILL NOT FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE BY YOUR UNCONDITIONAL GIFTS. JUST GIVE THEM A FRIENDLY GREETING WITH YOUR COMPASSION AND YOUR LOVE. MAKING SOMEBODY UNCOMFORTABLE ISN’T AN ACT OF KINDNESS; THEREFORE, COMPASSIONATELY SHOW THAT THEY ARE LOVED IN DIFFERENT WAYS. A FRIENDLY GREETING AND A RECOGNITION OF THEIR EXISTENCE SHOULD BE SUFFICIENT. EmilKoval©2018

REFLECTIONS 047: I WILL HAVE LIVED AT THIS RETIREMENT CENTER FOR TWO YEARS BY THE END OF THIS MONTH. I HAVE MADE MANY FRIENDS, AND THERE ARE A FEW PEOPLE WHO DO RESENT BY GENEROSITY. TWENTY OF THOSE FRIENDS HAVE PASSED IN THE PAST TWO YEARS. I HONORED AND RESPECTED THEIR EXISTENCE WHILE THEY WERE HERE, AND I WILL ALWAYS REMIND OTHERS OF THEIR POSITIVE SIDES. EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE NOT WITH ME PHYSICALLY, THEY ARE STILL WITH ME SPIRITUALLY. WHAT WE MUST UNDERSTAND IS THAT A NON-PHYSICAL PRESENCE DOES NOT MEAN THAT THERE IS NO SPIRITUAL PRESENCE. ALWAYS LEAVE YOUR IMPRINTS OF LOVE, COMPASSION, UNDERSTANDING, AND GRATITUDE ON THE PATHWAYS OF OTHERS. REMEMBER TO DO THIS FOR EVERY PERSON THAT YOU MEET WHETHER THEY ARE POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE TOWARDS YOU. EmilKoval©2018
