an answer

i guess it's part of my aging process.
i wonder what life is all about a whole lot more than i used to.

i wonder about what i'm doing with my time here
and i wonder what's the point of it all.
i just plain ol' wonder about living.

i never really get any answers.
i just wonder a lot.

today.......i got an answer!
at least an answer that works for today.

it may only work for this one moment in my life,
but i love it and it lit up my heart.
it just lit me right on up.
and i'm holding it right now.

so i thought i'd share.

maybe the point is to soak in every bit of beauty that is around us.

maybe it's to open our eyes to all the different places beauty bursts forth.
and maybe it's to open to that and to soak it in, to be washed with it....
and to dance with it.
to dance and dance and dance with it.

wouldn't that be amazing if that was the point? the deal? the goal?

i sure like that idea.
and at least for today, i'm absolutely taking it to heart.

I like that idea too - maybe soaking in the beauty around us - physically and emotionally and even looking for that beauty when we think it might not be there - maybe that IS what it's about. . . I'm looking. . . .and taking it to heart too - thanks ter

What really resonated with me... "I got an answer! at least an answer that works for today."

What if answers were supposed to be for this moment only? What if we were not meant to cling to them like they were the answer of all answers? What if we're getting answers all the time but just don't see them because we're looking for ONE BIG ANSWER?
And so, yeah, being more mindful of everything around us all the time probably would allow us to see all the little answers that are probably coming to us all the time.
Thanks for the ah ha, Ter :)

Reminds me of one of my favorite song lyrics from "holy now" by Peter Mayer

"So the challenging thing becomes
Not to look for miracles
But finding where there isn't one"
