For those who haven’t taken Justin’s popular Success: Full Living workshop, or even for those who have and want to refresh, I’ll be posting short readings from his book of the same title to share his insights with you. Here’s number 1:
I believe that all people are on this planet for the purpose of enjoying life. . . . Because I believe that all major religions seek to lead human beings to an understanding of life, I also believe that we are here to enjoy friends, family, health, happiness, all the material things that we need, love, joy, peace, as well as all that is good, true and beautiful.
But you and I know that there are people on the planet who are not experiencing fullness. What then is the problem?
From a theological perspective, when fullness is not achieved, there is nothing wrong with God. God dwells within each human being, but we all have free will. If we allow God to work through us then we can expect to experience fullness, but if we do not pay attention to the inner directions that comes from God and do “our own thing,” we can expect to experience limit. We create limit in our lives.
From a human perspective, life is the result of the choices we make.
