Facing the Passage

Face which stands before me
With glowing praise adore thee
Tormented cheeks with shriveled smile
Speak of distant traveled mile
A soul whose body consent to rent
Now bent, broken life spent
So as thy journey comes to end
Remember angels God did send
In you the light of life still shines
And in our art all ties still bind
To lead you on to greater place
Of rest & peace with silent grace

The tides go in and out. The day begins and ends, night follows. Something grows, something withers away. There is a start and a finish in our human dimension. Each day we travel towards a passage we must all have to face. Death. It is never like we think it is. We say we can handle it, but we never really know. When someone we love passes we find new emotions we never knew was there. We are humbled by the thought of the passage. Death shows us the fragile nature we really are.

The year is coming to an end. Are we prepared for it? We cannot do without limits and ends. They bring definition to our accomplishments. But we can plan to meet them to our advantage. When we plan to live on purpose we prepare ourselves for the passage. Many people who are in touch with themselves take time to plan, they leave letters, write poem, say farewell to loved ones. Such people knew how to prepare for the end.

But do we end? Energy cannot die. Scientists have proven this. Human beings are energy. The real you in-spirit cannot die, nor can your loved ones. We are transformed into a new potential. The essence of you is energy like electricity, unseen it moves onto another state. What that state is, is the mystery of God’s domain. The passage leads us to the mystery.

Every day it’s important to focus on what matters most. So when we face the passage we travel without regrets so the purity of the next cycle is assured. We are constantly being transformed, throughout life we encounter many little deaths that help us grow. As we evolve we might lose relationships, jobs, homes, loved ones.

As we let go of the old and welcome the new, we gain perspectives and understandings that lead to better wisdom and way of life. Spiritual practices help us look beyond what is happening in the physical world; keeps us centered and able to see the bigger picture. Find your source connection and face the passage before you travel to the end.
