When I consider the unequivocal and limited duration of my life, it takes only an instance to bring to consciousness the embodiment of our eternity. Engulfed in the infinite immensity of spaces of which I am ignorant, I am swallowed with sentience…. contemplative, yet optimistic. We live in a world that has lost much, and are left with the unfortunate observation of a demoralization and dehumanization of society. We have also garnered an obsession with too often striving to achieve for the sake of impressing those around us. However, we have lost sight of fulfilling our lives and those we love, and instead become preoccupied by fulfilling the perceptions of our neighbors. Within this collective sphere of betterment, we accumulate vast amenities and material possessions, but in this pursuit we have absconded from our traditions, our faith and the simplicity of which life was truly meant to be lived. Never have we had so much, yet so much meant so little. The essence of love gives meaning to the mirror that life presents to us in our individual lives, as does our faith in God. These are just two factors of true happiness and inner peace, allowing meaning to our existence. But life also brings with it aridity and disenchantment, it is between these two pendulums – the positive and the negative – that our lives are lived. We are all created equal, yet possess different strengths, weaknesses , and personalities….everyone unique, yet patterns under the chaos…fitting together as a massive puzzle, creating one of the most beautiful pictures on life’s canvas. Life offers a wide range of emotions and events; helping us to discover who we really are. Enjoy your achievements ….but most importantly cherish those close to you, these are your real possessions in the changing fortunes of time.
