Life has carried me to this moment in time. For an illusion, she certainly bears her weight.
I am 71 years on the planet. My face has, in it, the obvious benefits of everything I have experienced this far. All my sorrows, all my joys – a deep well of gratitude. All tools I know how to use now. I can even articulate them, passing on the challenge they give me to overcome. We are here now, this moment is what it is. I am still learning.
When I look at the balance time gives me, I find the wisdom to see what is good and pure and lovely, the wisdom to keep appreciating truth, and the assurance of eternity – itself a branch of timelessness. Most of all in value, is a relationship with love and compassion.
My heart has been developed with the understanding of Love’s power. It has been the mediator of Love’s dance. My heart has been hurt. It has been pressed into tiny spaces, mocked and finally given a glimpse of where it will take me.
There is a tender respect in me for this outer world we dwell in. I made my choice to place Spirit…Love…in the driver’s seat. Acknowledging Love as the substance for which I hope, the reality of that which I cannot see. We are surely a part of the larger story, we are a part of one another. We are walking together, yet singularly, into the next adventure.
