History in the making…
As Socrates once proclaimed, “The un-examined life is not worth living”…I heard it said by a bombastic, baptist trained voice in such a way that it got emblazoned in the crevices of my brain.
The examined life, in the larger, bigger, higher picture, is the Aware life.
We examine that which we need to know or better yet, understand more about, thus become more “aware” of.
To know is to be aware.
This morning, pondering my generally “High Awareness” life, especially in the last 12 or so years, I realized that the aware life is most definitely NOT the easy life. No oh no.
What then makes it worth-while, worth our while, this living of a life with the magnifying glass of constant questing and care and expanded awareness, instead of just sliding along like most do?
As a matter of fact, it struck me in the proverbial flash, it is of utmost importance.
You see, our present is our history in the making.
Our present is our history in the making!!!
Every moment is a moment that passes into the collective that we call our past. Drops making the ocean sort of thing.
We are, all of us, constant history makers. And our individual histories, like tributaries, gather to make the grand river of history that is our common past.
Our present is our history in the making…
Do you see that?
At every fractal level, in a time bound reality anyways, that was a staggering thought for me.
I am making my own history, moment by moment.
My most recent history impacts my present most strongly.
My choices make my history….
And that realization was sobering enough for me to make the conscious life worth it’s travails, every one of them…
So re-member, you are history in the making and the past creates the future. The present just is….
Make history mi amigos….
