These are lyrics from an awesome song, Chandelier by Sia.
Now, if I could swing from the chandelier….I totally would, it sounds like fun!! But the fact that one, I don’t have a chandelier, and two if I did have one, I probably couldn’t reach it, rules that out….But I can definitely make an effort to live like there’s no tomorrow!!!
On first thinking about there being no tomorrow, one often thinks of everything they wished they’d done in this life, that they haven’t had the opportunity to do, with a multitude of different scenarios of cool adventures to go on. (OK, maybe not everyone would think like this…..But lets pretend for arguments sake!!!) On deeper reflection, one realises there wouldn’t really be enough time to organise any great adventures before tomorrow arrives, so what would we do once we’d got over the shock of it???
Thinking about this in a positive light often helps to bring our attention to all the things that really matter to us, the things we value in our lives the most, the people we love. Many use this as an example of how the material possessions we have or strive for in our lives mean nothing compared to the people we love.
I agree in as far as focusing on the positive aspects in our lives like the people we love and the good relationships we’re having, is a very good idea and creates even better circumstances in our future experience as the Law of Attraction responds to our positive vibration by sending us more of what we are giving out through our focused thoughts and feelings.
But to then say all material possessions mean nothing……I’d like to see how happy we would be without clothing, shelter, transport, and all the other possessions that make our life Oh so much more enjoyable???
I think many have forgotten that we were Non-Physical beings before we made the choice to come into this Physical world we’re currently living in. We came to experience what this world has to offer, and to choose from all that we see, what it is that we are wishing to bring forward and experience, and that obviously includes material possessions.
Nothing went wrong, and nothing is currently wrong, but it’s true to say that man has come to learn there are limited resources that need to be fought over, that one must fiercely compete and push another down to gain some of these limited resources of money, love, possessions, friendships and whatever else one feels there’s a limited supply of…..and of course, if this is our belief, this will be our experience, we will see evidence everywhere that supports the dominant beliefs we hold.
Whereas the truth is….There is no limitation on the resources one can call on and bring forward through our focused positive attention and belief, our vibration. All that we’re wanting to have and experience is possible, but this I know, is far from the experience of many.
It’s not easy to stand apart from what the majority of society believes when you are apart of that society, but it is possible and the rewards great if one has remained strong in the face of opposition on a grand scale.
As usual, I look at the title of this post and think……Uhmmmmm, I think I may have got a bit sidetracked, Oh well, that’s the way the cookie crumbles sometimes, don’t you think???
For me, living like there’s no tomorrow means doing my best to focus on all the things in my life that are good and bringing who I really am, my best positive self, into the present moment I’m living, especially when interacting with others.
This I believe, eventually brings everything we’re wanting into our life experience!!
And so it is….
