“In the endless universe there has been nothing new, nothing different. What has appeared exceptional to the minute mind of man has been inevitable to the infinite Eye of God…There has been joy. There will be joy again.”
I’ve been quoting these words from The Demolished Man for over ten years in my writing. Each time, they seem to uncover something new from my vantage point in life. I have many of these ‘mile marker’ elements in life; quotes, places, people, or landmarks used to store the state of your life in that moment. The markers never seem to change…while the life surrounding them is awash in change.
Everything is in a state of change. Looking back to look forward, my 29th birthday is right around the corner and I have been sorting through a lot of memories that stand out over the past few years. There have been a lot of new faces, places, and experiences in my life, all of which I’m very grateful for. However, there have also been times and memories that I wish could come back for even a short moment in time.
The heart is a wondrous thing to unleash and lose yourself within. Love is like a lightning that electrifies every element of your being when you find yourself lost in its’ power. Rarely is it safe…but it is good.
Money comes. Money goes. A career can consume all of your time and mental energy shortly before it becomes a lingering sight in the rearview mirror of y0ur life. Love is the rock that matters.
With my 29th looming ahead, I’ve reached a point in my life where I can look at it and feel contentment within my own spectrum of accomplishment. In light of this accomplishment, I have a feeling that the best is yet to come and the years of past have simply been a warm-up for what is to come.
