We sometimes wish we had a different past.
That we didn’t go through all those hardships and pain.
Yet if we had we would not be who we are.
And who we are is a bridge.
We are a bridge from the past to the future.
We are a bridge from darkness to light.
We are a bridge from sadness to joy.
We came here to be that bridge.
To embody it for ourselves and others.
To live our life and learn our lessons.
To unfold as our own unique part of this universe.
Life may seem harsh at times.
It may feel like we’re not being taken care of.
Nothing is further from the truth.
Everything is unfolding exactly as it is meant to be.
We just don’t have the perspective yet.
We can’t see what the future holds in store for us.
What our lives will be like in 5, 10, 15, 20 or 40 years time.
How our own little piece fits in to the infinite puzzle.
We are constantly building ridges from our past to our future.
The bridge is the present.
The moment we are in right now.
What will we do with it?
What will we make of it?
This moment is special, as are all other moments.
What bridges will we will with it?
