Reflections in a Petri Dish | As Many as There is Sand Upon the Shore

Dog Poet Transmitting…….

Life can be difficult and even though we live in a magic world of infinite possibility, the world is crowded with bad magicians. It is not that the magic is bad. It is that most of us are unequal to the task, so it makes the world a place of shades and shadows, instead of a timeless Eden filled with light. We can’t say that it is anyone’s fault in particular. It is the fault of all of us collectively and those singular souls who are given wide latitude to perform, also sometimes fail to measure up to their own potential. In times like these, the singular souls are unaware of their own possibilities and fall short out of an inability to deal with their own loneliness and wind up conforming to the crowd. The shepherds get lost among the sheep.

One of the hardest things to recognize is that every moment counts. We diminish ourselves with the memories of our failures and cease to believe in ourselves accordingly. The hammer hand of our conscience turns us into cowards. The promise of our youth inevitably turns into resignation. No one has to die but then… we refuse to change. What is that line from The Bible? “We shall not all die but we shall all be changed.”
