The goal in this life may not be to live forever
But perhaps it’s to create something that will?
When you’re gone from this world, it’s only your legacy that you leave behind –
What contribution did you make?
How did you impact others?
What example did you set?
For what, will you ultimately be remembered?
When you leave this world,
You don’t carry any of the material over with you
So why spend so much time attending only to your material needs?
Satisfying only your material appetites?
And keeping up only your physical appearance –
Yet so little time cultivating your spirit.
When you’re gone, what you did in this life, not only contributes to the archives of human history,
It shapes the very spirit that you’ll carry with you into eternity.
And you’ve only got one shot to make your mark
To set things right.
So you may as well start now
Because time is truly of the essence
And only in the end, will your realize,
That time is the only currency that ever really mattered.
