Hope the weekend brings peace and purpose for you.
If your life is like a train journey……..
Some of the events and people who began your journey with you for various reason have
left the train. Some may come back..ie folks travelling, at college, etc etc.
Tomorrow some of the travellers and events in your carriage today will get off or be ‘gone’.
Therefore the meditation is this. Who and what is in your carriage right NOW. This is people, animals, circumstances like a job, or very tiring responsibilities for an ill relative. a new baby, a new relationship.
All of us have carriages with very different people and circumstances.
Focus in meditation on the NOW. Who or what should be before us to focus absolutely our care, love, our maintenance.
You will stay on this train until your life’s end. Who is with you from the beginning to the end?
Who is in the carriage right NOW deserving of attention and focus.
Something to think about.
See and DO something beautiful. This day….this weekend.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

Nice description of the uselessness of looking back at those who have got off the train, or anxiety regarding who will get on. You are right. Now is the time for our consideration. Past is memories, future is hope, now is action.
