An end without a finish line

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.

 

Then what?

 

A purpose.

 

What purpose?

 

Awareness.

 

Of what?

 

Purpose.

 

 

 

Reaching the 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;?

 

What?

 

Reaching the finish line.

 

For whom?

 

Me.

 

No.

 

 

 

 

Each in our own way

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

Personal interests,

At any given time.
