Past and Future Merge in the Present

Spirit tells me that the past and future story of our lives

Merge in the present reality of now. What was is no more.

What will be is not yet.

 

Memories are stories that we tell ourselves, and some others,

In order to explain and, or make sense of the life we have lived.

But, we cannot seem to understand that the life we will yet live

Will be the future of the life that we have already lived. It will

Not be disconnected in any real way from the life we now live.

 

How differently can we expect to live from those elderly people

We now see around us? How differently can our children

Expect to live from the way we live, now, when they are as

We now are? Or, do we believe that we will be in ten years’

Time, as we now are?

 

All the way through life we have had to develop

The ability to adapt to changing circumstances, and to

A changing identity. We were an infant once, and

Then a child. After that we developed, one step at a

Time into the persona we now are. How could we

Expect that change would not continue to alter

The persona we now are into the one we have

Not yet become?

 

So it is, Spirit tells me, with intellectual and emotional

Development, and so it is with spiritual awareness.

We were designed, He tells me, to blend together

Spiritually, as we diversified, one step at a time.
