A heart beat in eternity.
This earth mans residence is a speck of dust in the cosmos. Steel rusts, rocks erode, water pollutes, flesh decays, man suffers. The wheel turns, the wind blows, the clouds gather, the rain falls, the water washes the earth, the rivers run. The sediment is cleared and washed to the oceans, like chloesterol washers from our arteries with exercise, clearing the blockages. The sediment settles, the water clears the silt compacts, completing the cycle.The sun shines the plants grow man rejoices.
The flesh is tender our time is fleeting. Like a heart beat in eternity man will not witness the metamorphic action that completes the cycle. Man is only an infinitesimal part of creation. So look within for all without. If we have the gift we know to give. To want for nothing is to have it all.
An inherent force dominates all things. The power under laying all phenomena can move the largest obstacle and balance every minute detail of action and reaction, relentlessly changing everything to a state of equilibrium. Such a power will have no problem in dispensing with mans efforts to alter this process to his desire. Care has to be taken when interfering with this power. Man’s life is limited the force that governs all is eternal. Call this force by any name you wish as long as you respect the ultimate power I am referring to.
We should live our lives with this thought. All things, both good and bad, change in time. What we perceive as good will not last. So why grieve when the unavoidable happens, change is the way of all things. What we find both pleasant and unpleasant passes, change is neither good nor bad it is only the nature of all things. For peace of mind we have to accept this reality graciously.
Time passes the result is change. We also change and if we understand that greed, fear, hate and delusion are the cause of our problems we can change these faults compassionately sharing instead of greedily hording. Learning and practicing the truth, instead of fearing the unknown and lying because of ignorance, greed, hate or fear. Try to cooperate and appreciate our heart beat in eternity.
