Thaaat's better. A bit of great rock classic music in your head to set the tone!
So I hope you read yesterdays blog with the enlightening news about how few days you have left. Pretty shocking, huh?
That's what I hoped to do...shock you. Most of us just go through the Busyness of life. One day leads into the next, leads into the next...
I'm sorry to be so dramatic but my little fall from grace has, weeell, sorta shaken me up.....big time. It has caused that big question mark to become a continuing part of my, now very short existence. See, by my reckoning I have maybe up to 5000 days left. It's panic time. I wasted the rest so I have to work out what I am going to do to make an impression. To matter.
So the questions started. You know the ones, "Why, When, How, Where, If, Can, Will....." and the list goes on. Then attach those words to other stuff. You know "The meaning of life, the purpose of life, the afterlife, beforelife, darkness, the light, birth, death, BLINK......
Why am I doing that? You mean the BLINK thing?
Oh, because that is what happens when I try to solve one of those mysteries that can never, and will never be solved WHO AM I ???
Now I don't expect you to have an answer. Well, you may come up with "Trigger" but I was hoping for a little more spiritual revelation. I mean I know WHO I am. Sorta. But I am very aware of the few days I have left. I have worked my way through it all. I'm not depressed about it. I'm not scared. But I really am puzzled. See when I say BLINK, it is not far from the truth. Nearly all of my life is gone. Nothing really to show for it. And I still can't put a finger on who I am and why I am here. It's sooooo confusing. But I also know that it is a question none of us are going to be able to answer. So, if there isn't an answer, then I figure the next best thing is to do something remarkable. Something special. Something that makes who I am have MEANING.
And so that's where my journey is destined to finish.
When the BLINK is all over, the fact that I will have done something makes my one little 'ole life have purpose. See, I finally got to THINK. It took most of my life to work it out. Because the THINK involves THOUGHTS which are a part of CONSCIOUSNESS, which is indeed your SOUL which is Universal Oneness.
Now I know that will be pretty heavy stuff for a lot of you to comprehend all at once so let me make it a little easier to understand.
What ever names we give to the unexplainable, like soul and consciousness, it helps us to give meaning to the question marks. By thinking before blinking we can become a lot happier and accepting of our ultimate fate. The BLINK is not finite. It is part of something much bigger. It is why we pray. It is why we meditate and seek enlightenment. It is something INFINITE. To BLINK is only a small part of our role. All it takes is to THINK before the BLINK.
The question I have asked in the title "Who Are You" is ME asking myself. By thinking I am beginning to understand.
I don't know where my life has gone, I really don't. It is a BLINK. But it is not pointless anymore. Now I am beginning to grasp who I am. My life will be over, in a BLINK. But now, by thinking, I KNOW there's more to look forward to because we are all ONE of the same. So....
WHOOOO AAARE YOU ???
who, who, who, who
I reeeally waanna know.....
