I may be making a grand assumption that you have read my blog on TAKE TIME TO READ TEN SENTENCES. I want to see if you can read ten sentences that may be life changing, then you might take time to read JUST ONE sentence, one that you have selected as the core of what makes life worth living.

If you could choose just one sentence or phrase as the center of your life and focus on that center with all your heart, all your mind, all your strength, would it change you for the better, or just make life interesting.

Write down your one sentence. Have a passion about it so much so that you would trade or sell all the money in your bank, all your houses, your cars, your inheritance to posses and keep it (having and keeping something are different sets of skills). What would that center be?

This is the second, in what I consider are the six fundamental questions each human must ask and answer to reach fulfillment (now and in heaven). The six questions are:

  • What is the purpose of life?
  • What is your purpose within that purpose?
  • What does reality look like?
  • How does it all fit together?
  • How to love fiercely?
  • You know that you are going to die, now what?

If you do have the Christ Principle as your center, all your actions, your motivations, your goals, are all informed in, with, and through Jesus. In this context, being a Lay Cistercian makes so much sense, since my whole focus is on moving from my false self to my true self uses Cistercian practices and charisms (as I know them).
