Way 44. Make one audacious request per week (what do you have to lose?)
Guess what? I am 100% on target. Even Making the most audacious request of them all, aka, requesting donations to build a $500000.00 capital to start populating the desserts of Jordan. What could be more audacious than that? 🙂
But how am I 100% on target with all 50 Ways To Live On Your Own Terms? In due time and after years of futile attempts to live right, I came to the end of the matter. It all began to happen one morning in June 20, 1985. It has continued until the present.
Perhaps a reminder to my own self on what to do? No need to wonder. No need in trying to figure out what comes next. No need to study and rack my brains to learn what I don’t need to learn. Here is my secret to live on my own terms:
The words of the wise are like prodding goads, and firmly fixed [in the mind] like nails are the collected sayings which are given [as proceeding] from one Shepherd. But about going further [than the words given by one Shepherd], my son, be warned. Of making many books there is no end [so do not believe everything you read], and much study is a weariness of the flesh. All has been heard; the end of the matter is:
- Fear the Almighty [revere and worship Him, knowing that He is].
- Keep His commandments
- For this is the whole of man [the full, original purpose of his creation
- The object of God’s providence.
- The root of character
- The foundation of all happiness
- The adjustment to all inharmonious circumstances and conditions under the sun and the whole duty for every man
For the Almighty shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it is good or evil.
