Three Urgent Life Lessons

by Joe Vitale on November 23, 2011

As I write this, my mother is dying. She is in pain, looks horrible, and cries out a lot. It shakes me to the core to see her this way. She’s beyond recovery with any of the healers or healing I know.

My father, 86 and going strong, is her basic caretaker. He has refused most offers of help. When I return home to see them both, I struggle with what I see.

I’ve been reflecting on the insights here for you and me. This is a time of letting go and processing. There are at least three urgent life lessons that I feel compelled to share with you. Maybe you know them; maybe you don’t. But I feel obligated to describe them, hoping they will help all of us.

Here they are:

Health.

If you don’t take care of your health, your enjoyment of life, and most likely your length of time here, will suffer. This isn’t to be taken lightly. I’m not just talking about how you feel today, but how what you do today will influence how you feel a few years to decades from now. You are sculpting your future self from today’s thoughts, decisions and actions.

My mother hasn’t taken care of herself. For the last 13 years she has suffered from depression and procrastination. Over time, that created the deteriorating body I see today. Yet my father has exercised every day for the last fifty years. He’s 86 and basically in good health. Seeing him handle my mother is an inspiration.

Your health should be your top priority.

Wealth.

Unless you do something today about your finances, years to decades from now you may find yourself relying on others. That may not be a good thing. The health care system we currently have in the USA isn’t very healthy, or reliable. You don’t want to burden family or friends, and you don’t want to count on them. The only way out is to be financially free. That way you can hire the best care, even a personal doctor or nurse. You can take care of yourself and be comfortable.

My parents are “OK” financially. Their bills are paid. They have some insurance. But they can’t afford what I think my mother needs right now. I can, of course, and I am doing whatever my father will allow. But I don’t think you want to end up in a position where you are dependent on others.

Your wealth should be a top priority.

Happiness.

Throughout life, the goal seems to be happiness. A better word might be contentment. Yes, we want life experiences and “stuff,” but that’s because we think they will bring us happiness. The real goal is to be happy now.

My mother is not happy. My father is, or at least appears to be. And I confess that during this time with my mother I have had difficulty finding my center; that place of peace in the center of the cyclone. Yet happiness, or contentment, is the secret passageway to making all of life enjoyable, or at least acceptable.

Contentment should be your central priority.

Those life lessons are important. But how do you make them a reality?

Here are a few answers that have helped me:

Health.

Take care of your health

Take care of your health

Today the average life span is about 78 years. Thanks to better nutrition and better medicine, we are living longer. But you can’t stop there. Read Dr. Marc Gitterle’s book on anti-aging, called Growing Young. I realize there are numerous books on health and wellness. I know Dr. Gitterle. He’s helped me. His book is a breakthrough. Get his e-book direct from his website or get the printed version at Amazon. (I don’t make a dime when you buy it.)

Wealth.

Take care of your finances

Take care of your finances

According to the Associated Press on November 17th, “People who are 90 or older have nearly tripled in number since 1980, to 1.9 million…The trend is posing unique health challenges and adding to rising government costs for the strained Medicare and Social Security programs.” Save yourself. Read Attract Money Now. It’s free. I wrote it to help you out of the money mess. Quit giving your power to others; quit being a victim; quit complaining. Find your path to freedom. Get it direct from this link: http://www.attractmoneynow.com (Remember, it’s free.)

Happiness.

Erase beliefs to be here now

Erase beliefs to be here now

This moment is the miracle. Even with all the challenges, even with all the sadness, even with all the suffering, this moment is still a miracle. Finding peace within the circumstances of the moment is your test. There are many ways to help yourself return to this moment. When I was getting on a plane to see my mother a few months ago, and I knew she was in ER and didn’t know what I was going to face, I had to slow down my breathing, quiet my mind, and return to the serenity of the moment. My being at peace when I got to see my mom also helped her relax.

When I review this post, I see that I’m describing what others have said is our search and our right: the pursuit of health, wealth, and happiness. It’s not new. It’s centuries old.

The real question is, are you actively pursuing these?

The key word is actively.

It’s one thing to nod your head and agree with me. It’s quite another to stand up and do something.

I’m asking you to do something.

As I was writing this post for you, I learned a friend of mine from college died.

Then I learned the mother of another friend passed away.

What’s the best way to deal with these life challenges?

Nature reminds us of the way:

A cat we’ve had for over ten years suddenly stopped eating, looked ill, and left. He was feral. We had never been able to touch him, let alone catch him. But I marvel at how in tune with nature he was. He didn’t complain or second guess or doubt. He accepted his moment and moved on.

Sandy moved on naturally

Sandy moved on naturally

But the story gets even better.

Our dog, Wolfie, has never slept indoors at night. Not in ten years. Not during heavy rains or deep freezes. Never. But once our feral kitty left us, Wolfie moved in. Somehow Wolfie knew her friend no longer needed her outside for protection or company.

It’s inspiring to see nature work in such perfection. I want to be so in tune with my Divine connection to know what to do in each moment. For now, it’s writing this message to you.

What is it for you?

Finally, I’ve sometimes asked my readers to join me in holding an intention. Whether to stop a hurricane, clean up an oil spill, or put out wildfires, every time I’ve made such a request there was a measurable difference in the world.

This time I’m asking you to help my mother.

Please hold the intention that she is at peace in her body and mind. Send her love. Pray, clean, meditate, or whatever else you feel guided to do.  Ask for her most benevolent outcome.

Thank you.

I love you.

Ao Akua,

joe

PS — I wrote a song called “Three Months” that you’ll be able to hear on my forthcoming music CD, Strut! It’s based on a true story, where a friend was given three months to live. The song asks you to reflect on the question, “What would you do if you had three months to live?” It might be worth meditating on today, especially since tomorrow is Thanksgiving holiday in the USA: What would you do if you were given a short time on earth? What are you grateful for? Who are you grateful for? Who would you call? Thank? Hug? Kiss? What would you do? The moment to do something is right now. BTW, Happy Thanksgiving.

Dear Joe,

My prayers go to your mother. My own father passed away about a decade ago, after suffering a stroke that put him in a “zomby” state for 12 years…I sincerely hope that this won’t be the case with your mother.

No matter how the situation turns out, I think she must be proud to have a successful son who helps people for a living!

God Bless you!

Hi Joe,
My prayer for your mother is that she is comforted now , relieved of pain and aguish. That the realization of the love surrounding her from her family and God be fully revealed now.
Included are the prayers for you and your family too. That you all feel the release of anguish, knowing the love and support that flows to you from so many.
Many blessings,

Tom

Dear Joe
Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts at this challenging time. If you’re able, talk to amazing, miraculous Miracles Coach Janeen Detrick about BodyTalk (she told us about it and we now use it daily in our work helping humans and animals find emotional balance and grow together.) You’re so right that the animals already know this instinctively, but the balancing of BodyTalk helps all living beings at the level they need. Because it is guided by Innate Wisdom, humans can’t interfere with their own personal agendas. It supports the” best outcome” for the individual and can bring both physical and emotional peace as needed.
Here’s their website: http://www.bodytalksystem.com

Hope this helps.

In the meantime, love and healing energy is being sent to your mother, your father, yourself and your whole family, again for the best outcome. Much love from your “birthday sister” (exact same birthday!) Sue Reid xxx

You were the one that taught my that my outer reality is a reflection of my inner reality.

So as with you I will hold this intention of your mother finding peace and contentment.

Sandy is at one with the universe.

He is “in” Love, just like the news Esther Hicks broke about Jerry.

God bless you Joe.

God bless your Dad.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

I love you.

Thank you.
And may God bless Mom she understanding.

Wow. I think YOU need to learn more important life lessons Joe.
You have done nothing but criticise your mother and blame her for her situation. Not a word of love was spoken, not a word of understanding. Depression is a MEDICAL CONDITION!!!!!!!
My guess is you have not given her the support to help her find proper treatment. She is more than aware of your underlying disdain for her. You have helped make her life miserable. Good job!!

Wow. I’m not sure how you came to that conclusion — since you can’t possibly know what proper treatment she is getting — but I’m sorry. Please forgive me.

Adam November 24, 2011 at 6:45 pm

PP, I really feel that Joe loves his mother, as anyone would. I feel that Joe has done an excellent job in respecting his mother here simply by learning from her illness to help people like you and me to live a better life. I understand that you are singling out Joe for blaming his mother when in reality you are also blaming Joe. But this can be a growth point for you. Notice that when you judge others for something, chances are you also do the same thing, but turn your eye to it. Joe loves his mother, and he loves you, thats why he has used this life lesson to help people like you and me. Thank you for your honesty though, as without it, your own growth can not excel. And to Joe, god bless you and your mother and father. Nature will do the right thing, especially with all the beautiful prayers that me, you, and others are saying right now. God bless:)

Hi Joe – I read your emails daily and thank you for sharing personal aspects of your life and experiences. I’m sorry to hear the end is near for your mother – we want them to be around for ever they have been such a big part of our lives. I think it makes us feel a bit vulnerable when someone close is running out of time. I too used to wonder what would I do if I only had a little time left – I don’t think anyone knows until they are in that situation. My husband was given 3 months to live – seven months ago. He has a nasty and aggressive brain tumor. So far he seems happy and content – he has adjusted to losing his short term memory and his eyesight – he can still laugh and smile which I feel is very important – he is enjoying catching up with friends and family – when the time is right and there is no joy in his life then I will give him permission to pass on – I think that to have loving family with you when you go is comforting to the person and their carers. Its hard, but at the same time peaceful for all – better then to lose someone quickly without warning I think. You can take time to talk about old times, good times etc. Be at peace with yourself and accept the love and prayers that are pouring in from your friends around the globe. You have many, many friends who are think of you and praying for you and your mother and father. Take care. You are very important to a lot of people in this world.

Nancy November 24, 2011 at 7:51 am

Sending you love and prayers. Someone told me when my mom died that there are only two kinds of people in this world: The ones whose mom has died and the ones who’s mom will die. And I realized how profound it was to shift from one group into the other group. That was eleven years ago and it was hard for me when she passed since there were so many other upheavals in my life also at the time. Recently though I’ve come to see how the cleaning and clearing work I’ve done around the beliefs I have for death/dying really were not beliefs that I’d chosen but ones that were accumulated unconsciously. And I’ve come to the place that I can celebrate life here physically and life here spiritually and there is a wonderful peacefulness in feeling that there is no differences between them that should make me feel awful. I hope you take the time to enjoy the moments you can with the only person who can hold the title of mom and respect her choices in life and death process as she transitions back to her spiritual life and with time you will find she is here more fully as she merges back into your white board. Blessings and love to you.

Thank you for the message in your blog. You’ve shared great truth. Reading the comments taught me even more.

It also led me to have quite an epiphany this morning. One of the great gifts of love we can give is to honor another’s path. In observing their life, it teaches us many lessons. In offering them help, whether they choose to accept it or not, teaches us even more. In loving them through their choices, it teaches us love and compassion.

Sending love and light to you and your family. As your mom continues her journey my prayer for her is that she is led to her highest good.

Namaste! I am grateful for this message and insight.

Joe,

Thanks for sharing this story. I can’t begin to imagine how difficult this all must be for you. I went through my own experience a year ago when my father who left when I was a child came into my life and then “left” again a short while later. I can’t articulate with any adequacy what the experience was like. It just was and I am so grateful for it. I hope it not presumptuous but I wrote about it on my website. I share it with you and your readers if you don’t mind. here is the link: http://www.spiritual-intuition.com/reflections.html
It is titled: Reflections of my Father – A rift in Illusion

Please know that my thoughts are with you as well as your mother (and your father). I imagine the devotion of your Father to his lifelong love and how hard it is for him to see her wither away. He must be a wonderful man, as are you. Thanks for all you do and God bless. All my best and my sincerest Thanksgiving holiday wish to you and your family.

Love,

Carl

I read your blog post TWICE. We seem to have this in common and our life lessons are – spot on to what you say. Our parents generation, often called the Bob Hope generation may be here to teach us these lessons. I for one, am ACTIVELY pursuing these three areas. Since 1998 I have made HEALTH my number one value. If I don’t HAVE my health, the wealth and what you call contentment, seem to matter less. Thank you for this lovely post. It is ALL in God’s hands and I have faith.

Chris Erdle November 24, 2011 at 12:53 pm

Hi Joe,
I wanted to share with you a story of how I learned the meaning of my Yupik Eskimo name.

I never knew the meaning of my Yupik Eskimo name, which was given to me by my family.

My Mom and I recently bumped into my old Yupik Eskimo teacher at a family food restaurant. I asked my Mother to ask my old teacher to tell her the meaning of my Yupik Eskimo name. She returned to our table with a business card given to her by my old teacher that had the following information written on the back of it: “Egmigarlia means Chris (my name).”

I said to my Mother “that cannot be the true meaning of my Yupik Eskimo name, what did he really say?”

She stated that he was very hesitant to provide her with the meaning. He eventually did. She was hesitant to tell me what he said.

I told her that I really wanted to know. After a little coaxing, she finally told me that the meaning of my Yupik Eskimo name, “Egmigalria” means “one who comes to an end, over and over again.”

A huge smile came to my face – I said to her “Wow, that name has such relevance in my life, as I am a firm believer in reincarnation!” – (a factoid about me which she did not know).

I wish for the most benevolent outcome for your Mother. I am sorry she is suffering, please forgive me. I love you. Thank you both for being such an influence in my life.

Please pass on this story to your Mother, let her know that we all come to an end, over and over again.

Beverly Ambrosio November 24, 2011 at 8:04 pm

Dear Joe,

Nine years ago, this same time of year, my mother was going through the same kind of pain you described about your mother. My mom was dying of cirrhosis of the liver. It’s a horrible way to die because of the intense pain and deterioration of the internal organs, which occurs so rapidly. It leaves loved ones feeling helpless and confused as to why anyone has to suffer so much. The only way I was able to get through watching her suffer in such pain was to tell myself that she was on her own particular journey, and whatever she was going through was meant to be experienced. My heart truly goes out to you because I know what a hard time this is for you.

I am sending a heartfelt intention for your mother to be at peace with her mind and body. I truly believe this will occur naturally because I believe I saw it in my mother. The day before she passed away she wouldn’t get up for any of the nurses, but when I arrived she asked to get in her wheelchair. It was extremely difficult for her because every part of her body hurt. She wanted to go look outside. I wheeled her to the front of the building and she just sat there in silence looking out at the trees. I felt she knew it would be the last time she would ever see the world and she was okay with it all. It was one of the most difficult moments I’ve ever experienced but at the same time one of the most profound. It allowed me to see how precious our time here really is. Now, when my life gets crazy busy, I remind myself to stop and look at everything around me to really “see” it.

I am sending out an intention for peace and inner strength to be with you and your family during this time. Remember to take care of yourself and rest.

Warmest regards,
Beverly

I feel for you with the situation w/your Mom, it’s hard for us when we must look at a loved one leaving, and painful too.
I believe your Mom came here to do what she wanted to do, whatever that may be, and maybe now she feels she has accomplished that. I would bet her soul will evolve from having a son like you :)
I will hold the intention of peace for her – and for you also Joe – and here is a virtual hug for you *HUG* :)

You have my sympathy and empathy Joe.

It is very difficult watching your close family members deteriorate and die. There’s always a piece of you that dies with them. Sometimes that can be good, but it’s always sad. You also begin taking a hard look at your own mortality and your feelings about your own death.

Contentment, for me, in my opinion, can only be achieved whenever you let go of the expectations others have for you, that may even seem like or be your own expectations. Whether it’s yourself, parents, peers or spouses, contentment can only be found when you no longer allow expectations to control you.

May the angels give your mother peace and give you comfort.

Joe,

Peace. Divine Love surrounds her and fills her with peace. This peace resides behind the pain and I imagine that she is aware of the background of peace even now. I see this peace is comforting her and filling her with perfect and benevolent health. Divine Love is the truth. To your mom, your family, your friends, and your animals, I love you. I am sorry. Please, forgive me. Thank you.

All my Love,
Dawn

Joe,
We really are all one…it is inspiring and gratifying to hear you acknowledge that, in your asking for prayers / light/ sharing in helping your Mom. Know she may be your gift in dealing with the way she is. Lots of love and light to both of you.

Dear Joe,
This is such a tender and sacred moment for your mother, your father, for you and all the lives you touch. Death can be so painful–my mom needed morphine in her final days.
But she is giving birth to her soul in the Higher Realms. Labor pains (even in reverse) are painful.
Could she have taken “better care” of herself? Maybe. What if this life passing is perfect? Who are we to judge in the greater scheme of things!
Love & Blessings,
Shelley

It’s so hard to watch loved ones in pain. My father passed away last year and it was heartbreaking to watch him in his last hours. In the end the most loving thing I could do was to let him go. Thoughts, prayers and best wishes for all of you. love and hugs.

many blessings of peace, love,closure and contentment, and a release of fear and worry to you, your mom, dad, and to all people. have you asked your mom what she needs to find closure?does she have unfinished business, does she think she has to suffer? does anything soothe her? i will keep cleaning!
