When we peer through our lens, which part is an illusion and which parts comprise the true picture of who we really are? What is the arc of our whole life? Are we looking through a teeny tiny lens and only seeing the physical, the external? Or are we, at times, able to peer in more deeply at the true self, the one that lasts forever? I wonder if our troubles would seem less urgent if we could see them as a speck on a stretch of life that is eternal...

I have been looking at my life in short arcs for a long while now. It has just been through my experiences this past year that I have been able to put into practice that which I have known for some time. I am eternal. My soul is deep and complex and it would serve me in my daily life to remember this. My true self is really the anchor that can keep me grounded, so as not to be swayed or capsized by my daily challenges. May my lens be clear and true.
