Catch yourself the next time you are staring at the complete vastness of our world. To comprehend the amount of space your eyes can hold or fathom the span of time it took to create everything before you will only wear out your mind and heart. You find yourself looking at everything yet at the same time into nothing. Things appear so far away yet feel so intimate at the same time. It is meant to be this way. To be reminded that even in the vast nothingness, you are still intimately known.
Everything changes. Nothing stays the same. We often return to places we love the most. Places that give us solitude and remind us of how small we are in a larger picture. We come back to connect to it. To belong to it. And leave forever changed because of it. Just like waves, we return to where we’re from and can change the landscape over time, or be changed by it. We are a part of something so much greater. With no beginning or end in sight, nothing could separate us from this calling, this longing to be known. To belong.
Our hearts have been seeking almost all of our lives. Looking for truth. Searching for meaning. There will be times when we are fortunate enough to get a glimpse of what we have been searching for. When we finally feel our hearts beat and our lungs fill. Our soul becomes still. We are thankful for this moment and hopeful for our lives. Like a gift given by someone who knows us truly and all we desire. We become alive. And we will continue to live to for these moments.
