Moving Forward One Year at a Time

“We’re all the same age but not at the same time” sings Jacqueline Lemay.

What about adding one more year to our earthly life, only once a year since we came to earth?

Is it a drama or a path to pursue? Should we complain or give thanks? Of course, this brings changes. Isn't that what we've been going through since we were born?

Fortunately, we’re not stuck in the same place, otherwise our life would seem rather ugly to us. Each of us has gone through a lot of trials, sufferings and also enriching experiences. Yet we have always advanced one year at a time.

ancestral homeWhen I look at an ancestral home, I feel like entering it, knowing that it has a long history to tell and I let myself be instructed by its experience with great interest. Parts have been broken and repaired; it has changed its colours several times; decorations have been replaced but it remains on the same foundation, still solid and admirable while still inhabited. Isn't that what happens to us too over the years?

"Clouds float through my life, not to bring rain or storm, but to add colour to my sunset" (Rabindranath Tagore)
