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.
