To a certain extent life is all about connecting with various experiences as we embrace our existence and live our potential. Yet taking ownership of all the thoughts passing through our mind can be a tiring exercise and one we do not need to engage in.
The time to shine as we are passing through the day is always or never right, depending on our perspective of the moment. How we view each situation invariably determines how we cope or indeed thrive with it.
In terms of moving physically from one point or location to another, in many respects the same notions apply. We might be consciously linked to one place, but with forward-carrying momentum we reach another destination by passing through invisible barriers between ‘here’ and ‘there’.
On a personal level, accepting we are just passing through this life allows us the freedom to enjoy what is before us, together with what we create with our efforts. The transient nature of everything should itself be enough of a reason for us to appreciate everything, while grasping onto nothing.
With the minutes passing through the hour and accepting time is of a premium, I will stop now.
