Sometimes the world goes on all around us and we don't notice. Why is that? Are we single-minded or blind? May be a bit of both. Birds continue to fly. The wind continues to blow. The sun rises unbidden. Me? I stand still. I am unaffected by the constant as it meanders nearby me.
If I were to remain still, still in motion and thought, would I perceive the grandeur, the immensity of a universe in which I am but a particle of energy? My heart would still beat, my blood run. So insignificant in the greatness of it all.
Valuable to some, unknown to most, a single consciousness.
Would that I could soar through time and space and return unchanged. I dare say I would still be a single consciousness, but one with inexplicable awareness. Would duty call me? Would I be moved from repose?
I guess, why wait. Only God, these things knows.
