Just like a river, life keeps on flowing. It never stops and takes a break.
I have been in the habit of dividing my life into segments, somehow thinking that there is a “stop” when one segment comes to an end. But life does not “pause.” It doesn’t even slow down. It just keeps flowing like a river.
And one day this river will be swallowed up into the great ocean of eternity.
As long as I am on this earth I have influence. I can make choices. I can affect outcomes. One day I will no longer be able to do so. Maybe I will look down from somewhere in the sky and see what is going on here on earth. I don’t know. But I won’t be able to talk to anyone, or do anything. Have you ever thought of this?
