Heart of Becoming

Impress upon this life what you will make of it. Be true to the heart of becoming.

Though the tides have come and gone again and again, always new, it may appear as though this succession of rhythmic waves have extended throughout time. 

Notice how it is always new. Notice now, it is always new.

It may appear to the little child who lives inside the body of the grown one, that the happenings are still happening, as if nesting dolls recording memory.

Has the child looked up to see the new houses on the block, the new faces all around, the construction that has occurred? 

She might be shocked to see the calendar date, the events of late, as if waking from a long dream.

Impress upon this life what you will make of it. Be true to the heart of becoming.

Except in the mind, there is no past. Except in concept, no future.

What, then, will you make of your experience?

Perhaps it's time for some letting go, or the telling of a new, and beautiful story.
