Nothing Lasts Forever … or Do We?

While talking with a good friend this morning, I realized that my feelings about life being eternal may be questioned and that’s OK.  It’s simply what I choose to believe.  For me, it just doesn’t make sense that there would be this one life and then poof! it’s over and there’s nothing but nothingness.

As we talked over some other things, we were saying how most people live in the past and I think that’s true.  I’ve spent a good portion of my time there.  But now, if I ground myself and remind myself that I am present, here and now, I can let go of the thoughts of the past.  Does it work all the time?  Noooooo!  But it’s getting better.  Do we want to hang on to those good memories?  Of course we do and we should. It’s the cruddy ones we need to let go of.

I was reminded of a quote by Alan Cohen (I really like what he has to say) “If you are living in the past, you are homeless in the now.”

My friend also said that she hadn’t received any post cards from the other side.  Me either and what a bummer!  But something tells me those folks are all way too busy bee-bopping around the universe to send out post cards.  I’d love to hear what you think about this.  Feel free to comment below.

Today’s photo is the last of my lilies.  I decided to leave the one that’s fading away in the vase simply for contrast. Namaste’

  1. I hope it’s not lights out and we are just so much road kill. I believe in progression of the soul and reincarnation………I just hope we are right! If I die first I’ll try to send you a post card from the other side.

    P.S. I’m the lilly on the left.

    1. You’d better get a postcard through to me somehow if you go first. We have a contract, remember? If I go first, I’ll figure out a way to get one to you – LOL! You can’t be the lily on the left … I am! Ha!
