Spirit tells me that my body and the personality, or character,
That I have, with help, developed over a lifetime is not real
In any real sense, but just a means to an end.
If that is so then how would I recognize the finish line,
Should I ever get there?
An end does not necessarily mean a finish line.
Spirit tells me that one purpose of a memoir is to move forward
By looking back, as one might do while climbing a high hill or
Low mountain that, for reasons of our own, must be climbed.
Life itself can seem to be an uphill battle, but we might get
Some satisfaction from looking back and seeing how far
We have come. And, then, with a sense of accomplishment,
Turn again our focus ahead, anticipating the pleasure of
Celebrating a mission accomplished.
Does it ever happen;?
Reaching the finish line.
Spirit tells me that we each develop awareness
In our own way and in our own time.
There is no reward for those who
Finish first, for nobody ever finishes.
Thee is no end to what
What we can learn if
We want to.
We each satisfy our individual need
To learn whatever, according to
At any given time.
