Life is like a bicycle; to keep your balance you must keep on moving.
I like this quote from Albert Einstein - apparently he wrote it in a letter to his son.
Photo and quote was found at edu.blogs.com
It is important to keep on moving, but even more important to keep on moving in the right direction.
Henry B. Eyring said this;
"You make choices every day and almost every hour that keep you walking in the light or moving away toward darkness."
There is a great story about Smoke Jumpers that helps us learn the importance of Einstein's counsel to keep on moving, and also knowing what direction to move. It's a great read - Start Moving by Von G. Keetch.
"Relaxing on the ridge may seem a safe way to avoid making mistakes, but it’s also a way to avoid making progress."
His closing testimony is this:
"I testify that the best and clearest direction comes in our lives not when we are just waiting for our Heavenly Father to send help and guidance but when we are anxiously engaged with our back bent to the task. To those of you who are waiting upon the Lord for guidance in your lives—who need help with a major decision or question—I give you this challenge: Prayerfully and carefully use your own intelligence and your own resources to choose a path that seems right to you. Then become anxiously engaged in walking that path (see D&C 58:26–28). When the time for course correction comes, He will be there to help you and to guide you.
The best and clearest direction comes in our lives not when we are just waiting for our Heavenly Father to send help and guidance but when we are anxiously engaged with our back bent to the task."
(But don't read just this closing testimony, the story HERE is a great read.)
MARCH FORTH on this MARCH FOURTH!
