Four Characteristics Of A Life of Value

“Humans are looking for something, something solid, and something rewarding. Something that our consumption-based, monotheistic society cannot fill.

1. You know which values you value, which virtues you possess, and what makes you ethically/spiritually/emotionally/mentally unique. You know what you believe, why, and how.

You are aware of what the influences are on the values you possess at the current moment, and you make efforts to emphasize those of your choosing and de-emphasize that are really just instilled in you because of culture, genes, religious background, early family environment, etc.

2.  You are making consistent progress seeking and cultivating within you the values that you consciously choose – preferably values that are not harmful to others – for example, passion and courage versus greed and vengefulness.

3. You are excited by your values.  Every day you are proud or enthusiastic of the life you lead, the relationships you are in, the mark you’re leaving on the planet.  You are motivated to live life, to become all you can, to make a positive difference, to come to know yourself. Simply put, the Life of Value is a.) good for you and b.) good for something besides you. 

4. The world breathes a bit easier because you are here. You make some small, positive difference to those around you.”  www.valuesofthewise.com

After thirty years of teaching Inner City, Special Education students and forty-five years of metaphysical studies, I have decided to share my life's philosophical understandings on this wonderful website. For me, everything in my life has been a spiritual experience from being raised in an alcoholic household, to marriage and teaching, and finally caring for an Alzheimer parent. I have sought at least fifteen, personal psychic readings to try and assist me as a wife, teacher and caretaker. I want to share the wisdom that I have gained from following the valuable spiritual guidance from my inner knowing and from heeding the advise of channeled answers from trusted psychics. At almost 70 years old, I am writing, traveling and enjoying retirement in Florida.
