When We Reach 102 With No Regrets

In Uncategorized on December 13, 2015 at 10:51 pm

What memories are we making for ourselves and what will others remember about us? Did we help others? Did we inspire? Did we generate smiles and warm hearts? Did we console the sorrows of others? In short, did we make a difference?

What is the movie script that “we” have written for ourselves, the one that others will play back in their minds when thinking about us?

It’s true that not everyone perceives us or our intentions in the same way… Boy, do I know that!

Sometimes we think we’re doing good, when in reality it’s interpreted as negative. And sometimes we mean well with our actions, when no one asked for our help or intervention…


Either way, life is about showing up  and living it the best way we can, with no regrets. It is about taking the gift of our lives and making the best of it. And in the process, hopefully making a difference in this world in whichever way we can.

Here is a wonderful little video of a lady who is 102 years young, as she sees herself, for the first time, dancing on film.

Yes, she’s currently old and incapacitated. But this is not the Real her. The Real her is talented, connected to music, enjoys life and lives in the moment. The Real her, which is her Divine Essence, is filled with effervescence – the joie de vivre. 

18uvapw76nyu5jpgShe could believe that her current physical state is who she really is… She could feel incapable, old, unattractive, forgetful, slow, ill, needy and a burden to others. She may even have forgotten all the wonderful things she did when she was younger – which are just really minuscule moments in time, within the larger framework of the Universe. And within those nanoseconds which form a complete life, a rich history for her life-stream exits.

Based on the exterior or current circumstances, we can’t see the Real her. How could we? But despite outer appearances, that spark that makes her who she is is still there – dormant.

Until we remember who we are – or are reminded – we will believe that we are our circumstances. We are quick to forget the greatness that we are still capable of, and all the greatness we have already accomplished!


The true essence of that wonderful woman, now 102, was captured on film. What we see is her youthful self, expressing within that nanosecond of time called “her life”. It is a moment that represents the choice she made for her specific path, within the infinite possibilities for her life-stream. By observing her past, we can assess the make-up of that soul’s choices. She expressed her life by sharing her talents with the world and enjoying herself in the process. 

And this is all that is asked of us when we come to a world:  to participate and allow Creator to express Itself through us, so that in turn It can know Its Creation because of us.

We are participants in this world, and should be engaged in living the life we have to the fullest; making a difference every moment; and as if there’s no tomorrow.

And then, when we are 102, there should be no regrets…

And our heart should be full.
