Time Marches On
“The only thing that stays the same is that everything changes”
I really like this Tracy Lawrence song. We, at times, enjoy the illusion that things stay the same in our lives and our world. In reality we wouldn’t really like a world that stayed the same. When I look in the mirror and see more gray hair and a few more wrinkles – on those days I might sometimes wish things stayed the same! Then I remember the ancient wisdom teachings that advise we develop a deep relationship with that part of us that is never born and never dies. That brings a smile to my face. What a crazy adventure being a soul is.
Everything changes – every nano second of every day. Life changes. Today the daffodils are blooming in my yard – a sure sign that winter is ready to go back to sleep and that warm spring breezes and all sorts of flowers are ready to awaken. I watched a pair of eastern blue birds on my porch this morning. It’s clear that blue bird courting time of the year is here – it looked like love to me.
I wonder what will awaken in me this spring? What will change?
Isn’t it pure magic that . . . Time Marches On?
