Thoughts on Birth & Death

When you were born,

          You were crying

               and everyone else around you

               was smiling.

Live your life so that:

When you die,

          You’re the one smiling

               and everyone around you

               is crying.

Is it the Beginning or the End of another day?

Reflect:   What is this photo saying?  What question, questions does it evoke, stir up within?  What does it tell you about YOU;  about YOUR relationship to the universe;  about time and the quality of how you are using it;  about this very moment – only here once, never to return;  about ultimate meaning;  about why are YOU here  now, this moment?

Be Still – – – and Know

Mystery of the Present

The Mystery of the Present

The moment past

                        A memory.

The moment to come

                        Anticipation.

Both are distractions to the “now of life”

                        The only reality.
