I am but a flame, a spark of consciousness awake, alive, illuminated for a moment.
When thinking about ourselves, in the grand scheme of things, it seems that our lives seem to drudge on – one event after another. We can find ourselves lost in the illusion that our lives will go on forever, that they’re permanent, and that things won’t change. But they do. They are constantly changing, and if we pay close enough attention, so are we. For better or for worse, we’re evolving or devolving. Oscillating closer and further away from Source/God/Creator/Universe in our awareness.
The funny thing is, just like Glinda the Good witch says in The Wizard of Oz, we’ve had the power within us all along. That we have the power to realize our true natures and the ephemeral of our lifetimes.
Taking a moment to quietly meditating on this fact – that our lives are indeed ephemeral – it reminds us once more to seize the day, the moments, and to create and do what we will with our lives. There is no time to wait! There is no time!
