It is fragile this thing called life but we are one.
All part of one tapestry in life. The warp is our connection to the past and the future, and the weft is that which connects us now. The present.
There is a Maori whakatauki, Ka mua Ka muri, walking backwards into the future. It reminds us that we can learn from the past and it will help us deal with what lies ahead.
I guess the difficulty is that we often don’t see the relevance, meaning and importance of moments- until they have gone. This is why, however difficult it might be we have to accept the current moment for what it is- and to value it regardless. And whilst singularly our life might seem insignificant or unimportant, that it is part of something bigger, that we are part of something bigger.
Perhaps we are like firefly’s. Perhaps we light the way for others.
