To Herself

Let Death Make Us The Best People We Can Be

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?

To Herself

Are You Truly Free?

Getting more does not assure you will find fulfillment. But try wanting less, and you will find peace of mind.

Once you’re on that road, you will question that decision once in a while when you start comparing yourself with others.

And why do you do that?

Ego. It always wants to know where it stands– its place amongst the crowd.

You cannot know everything about the person you’re comparing yourself with more than you know yourself. So don’t be foolish to wish about trading places.

Instead, adjust the lens and focus on your own path.
Where are you right now?
Where do you intend to go?
How far have you come?

Looking inward, you’ll realize you already have everything you need; your path is your primary business.

And know that freedom is about finding peace and contentment in the here and now. It recognizes that this moment is enough.

You are not living years but a million moments that make up those years. So, if you can find peace and contentment in each of them, you could say your life has been complete.

And that matters.
