Footprints in the Windsm # 1378

What age would I die?

The one that is my own. Well, what can that mean? How does that help? It helps perhaps by saying we can let go of controlling it and let it come to us. It will without our efforts.

The question then is one of helping us noodle out how to live for the rest of our days. Will we be healthy? Will our mental powers stay with us? Will we remain ourselves or become somebody new—less or more? Will we be meaningful, feel meaningful, do meaningful? Will we matter?

The question also turns a mirror on the rest of our lives and asks What matters about my life? Our life together?

It also asks how we want to be treated by others: will we be respected? Remembered? Heard? Part of others?

Given that we have no permanency, what then is the purpose of our days, whether many or few? I see it is about the help we give one another, purposely, wittingly, or otherwise: love.

Please pass it on.
