These are perpetual and constant. We cannot see this circle because we are always part of it... Have you ever come to a place in your life where you are confused with what you see around you? Do you interpret that place as a new beginning or do you feel that it is an ending of a portion of your life? How do you know the difference between the two? Are you at a beginning or an end, a block or interruption, a desired break or an untimely dead-end?
That place of confusion is the moment when you let go of the ‘old way’ or is the feeling of sadness when you say goodbye. It is a time when you feel the most alone and when you need the help of others to carry you over the threshold of a new direction in life. You feel fragile and understand the remarkable emotions of being alive.
I’m at a place in my life where these moments of confusion seem to converge into a laser like beam of awareness. Endings and beginnings seem to meld together and each becomes blurred into the other. Instead of seeing the sadness of an ending or the joy and elation of a new beginning I see a continuum of events where each is responsible for the next and all build upon the other. I find confusion is replaced by clarity and sadness is replaced with determination.
By focusing on the wholeness of who we are we begin a new direction in our life. We step forth into the light and become a beacon for others to follow. Our life becomes full of wonder for it is the act of becoming whole that allows us to see with new eyes and to understand our pathway in life.
It is not the beginning nor is it the end that encapsulates our essence but it is the path that lies between. It is that path that forms the story of who we are. We are the sum of all our actions, deeds, and contributions all of which can be filtered like a rainbow or can be seen as the brilliant light of your soul.
"I wanted a perfect ending...
Now, I've learned the hard way that some poems don't rhyme,
and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle and end.
