Revelations in Reverie

The morning vistas alter rapidly, and I wonder why does it enthuse me, not just today, but daily so? Is it the inherent beauty of the landscape that bewitches me – fast-changing displays with a few rapid brushstrokes of vivid hues, tones and shades? Or is it the transient nature of the spectacle itself that plays out at twilight every morn on a set stage at the horizon?

Does life, as we know it, also play out an ephemeral subsistence on this planet, only to move on to more spectacular worlds? Does the soul – an infinitesimal subset of the infinite spiritual energy of the universe – also keep traversing across existences in a three-dimensional world? Or does it, after a momentary advent move on to other frontiers on the fringe of a vast universe, in a dimension where time and space curve back and merge into a single entity? If it is indeed peripatetic in the perceptible dimensions, then what is the purpose of the soul every time it manifests itself in a living entity? Why, am I here?

As I look up to the cosmos, seeking resolution of my disquietude, the Mother reaches out to me from the heavens with her lucent fingers extended. And as the gentle, tender, warm, glowing rays touch my distressed entity, my spirits soar into the ether, suddenly at ease because I know I am getting there, it is only a matter of time – as we humans quantify it!

  1. Sorry, I haven’t had much time to read lately. This post is pretty deep. I felt this way the other night when walking my dog. It was super frigid, but no snow. I was looking down and suddenly I looked up and so many stars were on display in the black sky. Shiny twinkling stars with a cluster of tiny ones – I realized that I saw the small dipper!

    1. Thank you for reading my post; and for sharing your experience with me. 🙂 Such are those moments when we are made aware of the infinitesimal nature of our existence. But it becomes intriguing when you think about the purpose, and probably – importance, of your being – despite being a speck of life! 🙂
