    Die empty

    One of the most beautiful book to read is "Die Empty" by Todd Henry.
    The author was inspired and got this idea of writing this book while attending a business meeting.
    When the director asked the audience: "Where is the richest land in the world?"

    One of the audience answered: "Oil-rich Gulf states."
    Another added: "Diamond mines in Africa."
    Then the director said: "No it is the cemetery. Yes, it is the richest land in the world, because millions of people have departed, "they have died" and they carried many valuable ideas that did not come to light and benefited others. It is all in the cemetery where they are buried."

    Inspired by this answer, Todd Henry wrote his book "Die empty." Where he did his best to motivate people to pour out their ideas and potential energies in their communities and turn them into something useful before it is too late.

    The most beautiful of what he said in his book is: "Do not go to your grave and carry inside you the best that you have.
    always choose to die empty

    The TRUE meaning of this expression, is to die empty of all the goodness that is within you. Deliver it to the world, before you leave

    If you have an idea perform it.
    If you have a knowledge give it out.
    If you have a goal achieve it.
    Love, share and distribute, do not keep it inside.

    Shall we begin to give and remove and spread every atom of goodness inside us.

    Start the race....
    Die Empty
    love & Light
    May God bless all

    The internet, and especially the social media forums, help people who do not wish to hold back. Isn't "Empty that noggin in the bloggin'" already the established norm ? When the world would like to have only the good (& the helpful), the bad and the ugly would also like to empty before they depart. While these contribute to making the good seem better (by contrast),

    Shouldn't we appreciate those who can take it to their graves*, and spare us the pain ?
    *The phrase "take something to the grave" is an idiom that means never reveal your secret.
