Inspiration – Love, Loss, Death & Connecting the Dots

stevejobs

The following video is one of my personal new favorites. Being a big fan of Macintosh computers its nice to see the man steering the companies ship has such a good and inspirational outlook on life.

“No one wants to die, even people who want to go to Heaven don’t want to die to get there, and yet, death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because death is very likely the single best invention of life. It’s life’s change agent; it clears out the old to make way for the new. right now, the new is you. But someday, not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it’s quite true. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice, heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

If you take anything from this video, if you only hear only one thing, hear the importance of steve’s message… don’t be trapped by the past. Whatever pattern or way of living that you’re stuck in right now, let it go. There can be peace and happiness in the world but it won’t come about by any means we’ve tried to date.

Don’t let the past be a burden, let it go and LIVE today like it was you last day.

Peace,
~ Echo

Echo,

Thank you. I am an avid Macintosh user and a long time Vedantist. I had not seen this much of Steve Jobs’ “other side”. I will surely bookmark your site and would love to correspond with you or others on these topics and/or chat. My AIM screen name is Bob2ndWave.

Simply amazing. Inspiringly wise words in a time where wisdom is tremendously lacking yet tremendously needed.
