For every breath of life, there is a sigh of death.
For every act of kindness, there is an act of hatred.
For every moment of joy, there is one of sorrow.
For every beginning, there is an end.
The meaning of life encompasses these elements of reality. There’s a particular sort of ebb-and-flow to the process. Something so ordinary at first glance; rapidly transitions to something so incredibly phantasmal and fantastical.
As our lives are ever weighed by the shifting times both ahead of us and behind us, our present moment is ever-morphing to adapt to the unseen trials and tribulations surrounding us.
Change is in the air, ever omnipotent and ever-present. Can you not feel it?
In your very bones, in your very soul and being. There’s something strange coming this way. And yet…there is also a hidden blessing in all of the chaos to ensue. A calling only you can answer.
It’s the call of the human experience.
When the world is faced with the coming dark hour, the cycle is preparing to start anew once more. As history repeats itself, so do we as a people.
For all of our glory and horrors, for all of our accomplishments and shame, and for all of our shared truths and deceptions – there is one constant reality to the universe that surrounds us.
Nothing ever stays the same.
Change is brewing.
A sense of immediate danger emits.
A silent hope bubbles above the surface.
Will you survive? Will I survive? What will become of our future?
Such are the questions of two lovebirds who glide together for one last time before the currents of wind change their course forever. Even at this strange time in our world’s history – it is evident enough that history indeed does repeat itself.
Life for us has always been plagued with war and peacetime, ever like a pendulum gliding back-and-forth ever so slowly.
Time is shifting.
You will be faced with many obstacles that will test everything you thought you stood for.
You will begin to understand and see the world through new eyes.
You’ll morph into a new person altogether, not familiar with the person you see from your reflection.
Just like a pendulum, too, you’ll eventually swing back to your old self. But for now, life is calling upon a darker self. A much more adaptable self.
Though the end is always inevitable, how will you change the world? For your future is just beyond the horizon…
Forever in Your Debt,
Leon R.M. Auguste
