I am sad about the loss of someone so visionary and so young. But I am touched greatly by the huge impact he has made on the world. First, the technology (which I write to you from) has virtually changed everything as we know it. I never thought in my lifetime I could touch a screen and watch movies, play games, read books, visit the internet, travel the world, gain information, write a script, post a blog….spend so much time. And the design is beautiful — like a flat window to a world. I never would have thought such a thing could be made in my lifetime. From where and when I grew up in time — An Iphone, or pad, they are like magic!! Something in dreams.
Second, his impact was huge by the words Mr. Jobs said, about living your dreams and being aware that you are dying in every moment. Who can actually process that and live mindfully daily??? These quotations from him I have seen posted in the last 24 hours speak to that passion of living and working with your heart, intuition and passion. I am consistently moved by the idea that if I can follow my own dreams somehow the universe will rise up around me to support my vision. As someone once said to me “get out of your own way”. I hope that is true…
I take this to mean that forget your idea of who you are — and let who you are flow from some greater and bigger place and all with flow with you?
“Almost everything–all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure–these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.” Steve Jobs
“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. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” ~ Steve Jobs (1955 – 2011)
I also take this to mean that what is really important in every day is LOVE. And speaking to that love. And telling those you love, that you love them. Not taking any moment for granted. Dear reader, today….I am sending love your way. Thank you for reading my thoughts. I do not take that time for granted.by
