“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
I promised myself long ago that my life would be a walk with eternity. I didn’t pray to be spared sickness, heartache or any dark moment life can bring. When those dark moments found me, I never prayed for the light, a cure, a way around. I prayed for strength to carry on.
I only wanted a walk with eternity and live my life along the way. I chased dreams that surrounded me like a halo and when I caught a handful, there were more just out of reach. Always on my horizon, in the dark midnights of my walk, my eyes lifted from the harshness of the shadowy ground to see a milky starlit sky. It was there the beacon hung like a lighthouse in a dangerous passage. Lifting my eyes to see the starshine light my way has made all the difference in my walk. It made me realize, my walk with eternity is just over the horizon. However far that might be.
