My Life According 2 Me
to French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean ...
I am a creation and not a product of some random mutation
I am what I am and when I finally accept me exactly as I am, then I will be
I can, have, and will have a personal and bidirectional relationship with my Creator
My inner core, the center of my being, is what I was made of; Pure and unconditional
There is a purpose for my current life in this limited dimension of universe - A purpose, not a preplanned scenario
Where I have been and what I have gone through and what I have learned
is exactly what I need to be where I am at this very moment
Rima. January 1998
I Promise Myself
To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person I meet.
To make all my friends feel that there is something special in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature I meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of myself that I have no time to critisize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

I asked God to ...
- I asked God to take away my pride.
God said "No", It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.
- I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said "No," Her spirit was whole, her body was only temporary.
- I asked God to grant me patience.
God said "No", Patience is a byproduct of tribulations; it isn't granted,
it is earned.
- I asked God to give me happiness.
God said "No," I give you blessings, happiness is up to you.
- I asked God to spare me pain.
God said "No", Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and
brings you closer to me.
- I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said "No", You must grow on your own, but I will prune you
to make you fruitful.
- I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life.
God said "No", I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things.
- I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as he loves me.
God said... Ahhhh, finally you have the idea!
LET GO AND LET GOD
As children bring their broken toys, with tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams to God, because he is my friend.
But then instead of leaving Him in peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help,
with ways that were my own.
At last, I snatched them back again
and cried, "How can You be so slow?"
"My child" He said, "what could I do? you never did let go"
My Closing Statement
Intrusions and failures are unavoidable at high speed living, but the desire of the soul is to
live the last week of earthly life, "FREE" - Free from all shortcomings, inequities, sins, jealousies,
hates, sorrows, choices and the technology - just one week!.
"Life According 2 Me" is
Rima's interpretation of "my life according to Him".
