Learning to Remember

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”  Teilhard de Chardin

We get so busy living that we forget. We never stop. We uphold our importance. We don’t see the big picture. We live as though this is the only day, as though this (fill in the blank) is all that matters. We take ourselves so seriously.

If we can learn to stop, or at least slow down; widen our experience, recognize that we are a drop in the ocean, a piece of the puzzle instead of the whole puzzle, life will make a lot more sense.

We are born. We learn, explore, search, make mistakes, make amends, learn to live a little more, and finally, one day we arrive where we began. Life is all about learning to remember who we were in the first place.
