Thank you for the Gift of Life

 

We are distant

So we count the seconds

Painfully aware that our appearance on Earth

Is only a tiny insertion into Creation

 

Yet we feel eternity,

Long for eternity,

Know deep inside us

That we are eternal

 

Struggling to find meaning, understanding,

In the apparent contradiction of our few years

And our knowing.

 

Something in us is from the core

We are coded to know it,

Recognize it,

Be with it

Yet trained away from it all our life.

 

So we re-petition that

Which gives us life

Each day

 

Thank you for the gift of life

For the ability to perceive beauty

To see colors

To feel love

Thank you for the human faculties

 

May I remember the Great Purpose

May I remember my purpose

May it continue
