29

Twenty-Nine.
Life begins, yet again.
Restart the cycle, let this be your rebirth.
Every new year starts with a brand new day,
minute,
second.

Life is brand new in every single moment,
there is nothing that is static.
All things are constantly turning over,
transforming,
reconfiguring,
beginning anew
just to end and start again,
CONSTANTLY.

The unfathomable paradox of life
is that every single moment is completely different from the last,
and yet if you dwell in the moment,
you find that all is One,
never-changing,
utterly absolute.

Can you begin to grasp this insane concept?
That Change and the Absolute are one in the same?
Everything is different
and continually transforming,
and it happens so fast
that it’s impossible to measure!
Understand that this inability to divide time and space to the smallest possible denominator
means that it’s all happening at once.
You can never stop dividing.
It goes on into eternity.

This IS the nature of eternity:
It’s here and now, in every moment, always.

These are the things I think about,
the existential issues that constantly beg for my attention.
If I can somehow grasp the bigger picture,
perhaps I can make sense of my silly little life.
If I can understand the very nature of life,
then maybe I’ll figure out the purpose of my own.

Because I’m now 29.
Which direction shall I go?
What portion of eternity can I grasp this year?
Minute?
Second?

Oh Soul,
you have so many worries,
and the Good Shepherd said to let it go,
you build nothing with anxiety.
To worry about the future
is to lose sight of the Now,
to miss the only life you’ll ever experience…
the undeniable reality of THIS MOMENT.

You may, and should, plan ahead,
but never in fear,
never in doubt.
Those cheap companions blind you to the bliss
of experiencing life in it’s simplicity.

Find a way to live in balance,
aware of the grander scheme of things,
but to recognize that Grand is experienced in the humble.
Let your humanity truly experience humanity,
and let your divinity remain divine.
Let these seemingly opposing aspects of your existence
touch one another
and support one another,

because this is the ALL of life.

Saturate yourself
in this exact moment
and realize,
you’ve lived in this space for eternity.
Let this be your grounding,
your source of peace and stability
as you once again
begin again
and live the truth of
Twenty-Nine.
