The Stages of Life

“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.” T. S. Eliot

And Aren’t We Beautiful….

The river rages with no break

Ocean waves take a break in between

crashing into shore

but the energy is relentless.

It is like the stages of life.

We sometimes find ourselves like the ocean

Rising up high and

crashing down into a low.

Then we reach a point of being like a river

Constantly moving forward

not looking back

not taking time to stop and reflect,

Missing out on the experiences happening all around us.

Many times, we choose to become like a gentle brook or stream

Just gently, smoothly drifting along

Taking time to embrace the moment,

Speaking wisdom.

How many times do we stop and honor ourselves? Our feelings, our highs and lows?

I allow myself in this Holy Instant to just be.

I sit here and envision what was --

That scared little girl

That rebellious teen

That broken young woman enduring physical, emotional, mental

abuse and trauma.

There were dark nights of the soul necessary to process it all,

Stopping the madness so the light could find me.

In any given moment, I can be that river, stream, ocean or even lake of contentment.

I choose and therefore I am.

Dear Angels, having the freedom to choose how to live our lives is something we take for granted. Instead of being angry at the world I live in, I can choose to collaborate with others to make the world into what I do want.

Dear Ones, your choices contribute to the formation of your identity and determine the course of your life. It's important to note that human existence encompasses more than just the act of choosing. Other aspects such as relationships, experiences, emotions, and external factors also shape your being. Nevertheless, the ability to make choices is indeed a significant aspect of human existence and personal autonomy. Therefore, we implore you to choose wisely in any given moment whether to be the river, ocean or stream.

Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.

Today, I promise to be fully aware of how I present myself as I move through the stages of life.
