The one constant thing you can count on….
Have you been noticing that the longer your alive the more
change happens? Seems the one thing we
all encounter is change. We grow older
as does everyone else, those babies don’t stay babies. People we love don’t always keep going,
remember none of us are getting out of this life alive. Knowing there are more years behind me and
less in front of me does give a kind of urgency to get where I wanted to
Some of these changes are good ones, knowing more, gaining
more spiritual power, making better choices.
As humans we are not perfect and though we get old that doesn’t mean we
make less mistakes or choose the best thing all the time. If we are lucky and smart, we make those poor
choices less and less and the good ones more and more. I do love that old saying, insanity is doing
the same thing over and over expecting the result will be different somehow. Spirit does teach us lessons, easy lessons
while we sleep or tough ones that put what we believe in to the test.
Horace Greeley once said, you can’t go home again. Meaning the home you left is back in time and
time changes everything. I once went
back to a town I had lived in when I was in first grade. Everything was smaller, the distances shorter,
it wasn’t as bright as it had been in my memories. The house we lived in was a parking lot. Having friends that share a common feeling of
family or connection. Those friends
bodies change but the feelings can remain the same. The person we choose to live our lives with
also change. If we are wise we grow
together not apart. Knowing that person
and loving them warts and all through time.
My sweetie says relationships end when both people give up at the same
time. Simple yet profound observations.
A perfect moment, we collect these memories as we walk our
life path. As you know we can’t take
those physical treasures with us. The
perfect memories we do take with us. The
birth of a child, a perfect summer afternoon sitting on a bench by the water, a
family holiday that’s just right. Whatever
your perfect moment it’s captured in your memory waiting for you to visit it
again. I had a perfect moment last
night. It didn’t last long as they often
don’t. My sweetie and I were sitting
together, a dog or two with us as we watched a movie. I looked down and saw my leg crossed with
hers, Her right leg and my left, two different looking feet but on the correct
left right placement. The universe
saying you are one. This seeming
everyday thing touched my spirit, we are one.
I know that as time goes by our relationship will grow,
change, if we are both wise and make the best choices we will grow
together. That is the one constant thing
we can count on, change. As we travel
through time, let’s think about the consequences of our choices. It is just possible when we reach our life
paths destination we will have collected our perfect moments to bring with us
on the journey to the next life. May we
all be blessed to know how to choose what is best for us and learn from those choices
that weren’t good.
