Yesterday was the birthday of a dear, old friend. He has passed years ago, but he wrote something that speaks to me today, as it did then…it actually made its way out of a storage box this morning…go figure!!!
We move along, doing the best we can,
Occasionally testing the boundaries.
Some, more than others, become bored with the gift of life
and stray far away from the path of righteousness.
And the day will come when each of us will look into the mirror and say,
“It is I who I must wake up with in the morning
and it is I who I must sleep with at night.
It is I to whom I must answer.”
So begins morality and a sense of values, which will deliver the owner a life-long high, which is greater than any chemical on Earth can induce.
Nobody knows for certain, but there is a belief among us that this character is not only carried through our mortal lives, but is also carried into the hereafter…and a clean conscience is a clear path to eternal peace. BF
Happy Birthday, my old-soul friend. Thank you for these words and many others we have shared. I think of you often. Rest in peace.
