Today is a bonus.
How differently will I live if I were only given a day? How will my perspective change?
I love life, sure, but I can’t hold it by the hand. It ebbs and flows through time. The universe will remain.. God is eternal.
The thought crossed my mind as a kid. The world is old. It’s been here for a very long time and will remain even when my time is over. Many generations have passed. Millions have crossed it. A thousand may have sat on this exact spot where I am, at this hour of day.
Where are they now? Are they dancing and swirling in the vast space though I can’t see them?
It’s easy to imagine that when people don’t inhabit a form; or contents of our life disintegrate and we become just one tiny particle (could that be true?).
Or maybe we get dissolved into the universe completely– becoming one with it.
Dissolved into space.
Imagine that about other people.
Imagine that about myself.
So, how would I live today?
