Muse-worthy Quote: Life, Story, Book

Life as a book or story is one analogy used by many to explain life. C.S. Lewis’s perspective of life, both here and in the hereafter, as a story in a book is worthy of note.

I believe he is saying:

  • Death is not the end of life (by implication, the word ‘afterlife’ is irrelevant).
  • Life as we know it now, is a phase which preludes another.
  • Life is never-ending.
  • We write our story by how we live.
  • Life, now and hereafter, is connected and inextricably related. Just like the first page of a book and the rest of the book.

Time Flies

Time Flies

It’s July already!

January was just yesterday. Time flies.

In retrospect, I am reminded of how with our choices, we use or abuse this indispensable gift, time.

With the poem below, I describe my life at different times. Like day and night, I have experienced both parts of the poem repeatedly.

My resolve is to live out the second part, consistently.

Undauntedly.

Tick, tock, tick, tock…
The hours slip by.
Day in day out, the sun rises & sets,
And the years seem to fly.
Time passes, we are not left unchanged.
Yet it’s the same sun, in the same sky.
Moments come, full of promise,
Only to flit away, leaving one high and dry
Time flies,
Mumbles the fool, with a sigh.

Tick, tock, tick, tock…
The hours slip by.
Day in day out, the sun rises & sets,
And the wise learn to fly.
Sure time passes, and fortunes are changed.
Yet the limit lies beyond the sky.
Moments come, full of promise,
To leave in its wake fruits, that’s anything but dry.
Time flies!
Exults the wise, with a sigh.

Muse-worthy Quote: Choices, Experiences, Wisdom

Life consists of experiences. As it unfolds, we are dished the good, bad and ugly. Life also consists of choices. When we make them, we experience the good, bad or ugly.

Whatever our experiences, or the aftermath of our choices, we can be the better for it.

The secret is to learn from our experiences. Whether good, bad or ugly, experience affords us the opportunity gain wisdom.

Everyday. We have experiences. We make choices and live with the consequences.

To make the most of everyday, we must intentionally draw lessons from yesterday’s and today’s experiences to be better tomorrow.
