Quick…without thinking…what is your most precious possession at this moment?
What is precious to you has and will change over time, but thinking about the question always is a good barometer for where you are in life and what your values are. Feel free to share your answer, I am curious to learn what is in your mind
Living possession- Girlfriend. (I am NOT possessive though lol)
Thing possession- iPhone 4s
Education is my most precious possession. Without it...I have no life. My most precious living posession is my family and life in general.
I thought of my family. Then I thought dang, that's not a possession. Well, you told me not to think! I honestly love my family to death. No matter how much you may bicker or tease one another, at the end of the day you'll love each other no matter what.
Sometimes I have a tendency to get too analytical. However, the first thing that popped into my head was, I have no one precious possession. Many, many years ago I told myself I would never cling too much to any possession. They are just things, things break, they wear down, they get lost. You can spend time trying to protect possessions, putting them in glass cabinets, protective cases but with time those things don't last forever and neither do we.
Now I'm not saying don't get car insurance but life is changing every second. Watching water running down a stream, the world and universe are alive. Moving and expanding, like watching ants on an ant hill, or a school of fish in the ocean looking like a tornado. We are in constant motion, ever changing. If anything is precious it's the moment you're in, but it's not my possession.
Toss up between this computer with all my manuscripts on it, the stuffed animal my grandmother made me on the day I was born, or the Colt 1911 handed down from my great-great-grandfather that has seen all the men of my family safe wherever they travelled.
My family. I wouldn't be who I am without them. Everything else is expendable if need be.
My mind. Thank goodness I haven't lost it just yet! Without it, I'd have nothing to do.
I think - without thinking - that It would have to be my beautiful dog!!
My most precious possession is, and always has been, my baby doll. My mum gave him to me on my sixth Christmas. He is 24 inches tall and 50 years old now. I love him today like I loved him 50 Christmases ago.
If I answer this question with out thinking... and quickly I would have to say that my dog is my most precious possession right now. She is the one thing I have that can make one terrible day suddenly all worth while.
It is not material my peace. Once I found it I could do anything and handle anything, I am a new person that grows and flows and nothing can replace that. I am so connected and happy, willing and able, that brings all the good things in my life.
Knowning that I have given my heart to someone and to have felt being loved ultimately and unconditionally.
My human life. Without it I'm currently a little lost.
I need desperately to kill the ego, first, so I can awaken the sleeping "master" within--the true self (child of God).
Once that happens, then all of this physical stuff don't mean squat. But I would like to stick around to help others.
Aww my beautiful babies. I would be nothing with out them. They give me strength & unconditional love. Honestly u will never know what love at first sight is until u look at ur newborn baby for the first time. Even after I pass away there will be a piece of me in this earth.

This list of beliefs I wrote about 5 years ago, came from an approximate 20-year study of the Statements of Beliefs by many different Christian denominations. These were the beliefs I found that were of most common agreement between them. That doesn't mean they represent ALL denominations but...

The moment you realize something,is the exact moment that you should react to it.Do you agree?Some people react slowly,some pass it off as a passing fad,some don't act to a situation at all,and some can't wait to attend to it and solve the matter at hand.Do you have good reaction?

Can you list 5 things you are grateful for that you did not buy?You can be grateful for the lovely rescue cat that is a great companion, but you cannot be grateful because you bought a big screen TV. No money can be spent.

I just had an odd thought. We spend a lot of time in our lives reflecting on our actions, attempting to put things into perspective and wondering how to be better people. We also probably spend a similar amount of time attempting to understand the actions of others and put them into perspective.It...

Can too much money make you unhappy?You hear some awful stories about people who win the lottery or who have lots of money but nothing seems to go right for them.While this may not apply to everyone with money,do you think if you had a lot of money it would make you unhappy?
