Going Beyond Limitation

In each person's life there comes a time when he or she pursues growth and expansion on the level of form. This is when you strive to overcome limitation such as physical weakness or financial scarcity, when you acquire new skills and knowledge, or through creative action bring something new into this world that is life-enhancing for yourself as well as others...

When you are present, when your attention is fully in the Now, that Presence will flow into and transform what you do. There will be quality and power in it. You are present when what you are doing is not primarily a means to an end but fulfilling in itself, when there is joy and aliveness in what you do. And, of course, you cannot be present unless you become friendly with the present moment. That is the basis for effective action, uncontaminated by negativity.
(This is an entry for the Power of Now, written by Eckhart Tolle)

Here is a picture of my father, whom I didn't have much of a relationship with up until I was about to get married.... that time frame, 25 years! Since my father has retired from the military, he has been going beyond his limitations as a father, husband, and whom I now consider my best friend!
