live eternally now means that every second of my life I find the
excitement and greatness in each moment and live it to the fullest.
I walked into a store the other
day and I said Wow, do you look great! The clerk looked at me with a
surprised expression on her face and coyly said Oh! I responded Yes,
just as you were standing at the counter in front of the window the
sun framed your head setting your hair aglow with the most beautiful
colors. Your complexion is so soft and gentle looking, and the
radiance of your smile made me feel I have met a supercalifragulistic
person of the most high.
She looked at me and smiled again
and again. As she waited on me it was as though we were both
transported into another dimension of life. Forgotten was the
merchandise which I purchased and which she so handily delivered. I
slid my credit card across the counter and the transaction was
completed. She countered with picking up a few other items and showing
them to me. We were in a state of bliss without realizing that it was
taking place an exciting moment, great beyond words and actions,
paradise in the most humble of surroundings.
As I walked out of the store I
walked into the next store to look at a valise. I said I am interested
in a compact valise, which will hold letter size papers and my mail.
The clerk looked at me and said absentmindedly We donít carry them.
I browsed through the store and found exactly the valise I wanted. I
returned to the salesman and said I found just what I wanted, thank
you! He said Donít thank me, I did not help you. I was taken aback a
moment and then realized that I had not greeted him with the
expectation of service and completion. I immediately remedied that. By
the way, when I came into the store I noticed you were making order in
the display cabinet. I have never seen cameras presented in such an
eye-catching manner. Do you always create these displays? Shyly he
dropped his eyes and said I always lay out the counter displays. I
said They really look great. He turned back to me and said Sorry I was
gruff with you when you came into the store. I had problems on my
mind. Your genuine interest in my work and me is very thoughtful.
Not big things, but this is what
causes MY world go around seeing myself reflected in the life
experiences of others in a positive way.
When I take time to let my light
shine I see the light of others shining brightly and imaginatively
