FOR THE THEN
Think of the most famous person you know. Think
back on the day of their birth, their hometown,
the sayings they were most remembered for
including some classic disputes that were
documented. Where they went to school or come by
the wisdom they displayed. Who were their biggest
influences and what were their greatest
accomplishments? How did they die and where are
Most of these people had no idea of who they were
going to become or that their life would be
scrutinized in every detail. Had they known, would
they have lived a completely different life or
just gone about as if it did not matter? Now look
to your own life and how it's being lived as if
there will be no circumstance for living it in any
other way. But what if you did know that someday
your timeline would be under a microscope and all
your deeds the subject of several best sellers?
Some people reading this know for sure this will
be the case whether by birth or accomplishments.

is a fun game to live as if your life will be as
well researched as the person you have in mind.
Consider the people you share your life with and
reflect on your interactions with this new

alter the way you work at your job, study at
school or decide on anything of any importance in
the future? Could you do it free of the ego that
the mind is prone to fall prey to without a firm
grip on what makes a person humble or frustrated
that what you envision is only a game of the
One way to play the game is to write your
autobiography in your head as you go through each
moment the way you would like it to be written.
Consider in the third person what someone
researching your life would note as your major
life achievements before the events so when you
read the story of your life in some future
reincarnation, it will provide the inspiration
found when looking back at those we look up to
now. If nothing else, it will be a story you
wouldn't mind reading several times over and
probably will before moving on to your next life.

and thanked Karra for her help yet once again
