“With just one short life to live a powerful question smacks us right between the eyes: What obligations come with it?”
This week’s theme layers nicely on top of last week’s MBM, The Bucket List.
Obligation: An act of being morally or legally bound; a duty or commitment. A debt of gratitude.
While philosophers through the ages have struggled with this question, MG asks the listeners to consider the same theme. “Do you think you have any obligations with the life you’ve been gifted?”
MG runs through a list of considerations: Do you have the obligation to care for yourself and others? Do you have the obligation to have the best health possible? Do you have the obligation to be kind — to treat others as you wish to be treated? (The Golden Rule).
Do you have the obligation to find a purpose in life? Do you have an obligation to love? Do you have the obligation to be of service? Do you have the obligation to be happy? Do you have the obligation to challenge yourself? Do you have the obligation to learn, grow and set goals? Do you have the obligation to refine your thinking and your character?
The feeling of obligation drives action! And, if you were to have no obligations would life lose its meaning?
