Fully Awake

Pathetic mysteries and all too familiar places.

The darkness is invaded by an overwhelming light, the shadows crack and break as they fall lifeless and exposed. 

The riddles lie dormant before the creator, as do our lives. 

We walk forward into all that is to come knowing that where we have gone does not determine who we will become. 

For all things pass in their season, both the new and the old will fade; so why chase what cannot sustain, the life you now contain? 

The mysteries we face are but shadows that will break, as we walk into the future that is at stake.

Beautiful is the face of the one who chooses joy as his burden for today. 

For who understands life’s mysteries and could say, what could happen today, if you choose to live fully awake.
