Life is movement, and movement changes us. Do we have control upon it? Yes, at least in part. Of course we cannot escape the passing of time which aged us and challenged us with some common situations. I remember when I was 40, I discovered that I have to accept some physical limitations – as for example, the need to wear glasses for the first time. Then at 60, I understood that I’ll have to live with the constant presence of pain. Not a big pain – not yet, hopefully – just some discomfort…. but always “something” would hurt, today the back, tomorrow one tooth, then a muscle, etc… This does not depend of us, but something else does: time allows us to accumulate experiences, and those experiences would change according to our capacity to process them, and to the general direction we choose to give to our life.
Life constantly present us with a choice to make. in many situations there is a way toward the light, the good, the beautiful, the just… and another direction which lead maybe not to the opposite – darkness and evil – but at least to a lack of light, to compromises with what we know deeply in our heart, which is the right choice.
And what would be this choice ? Well, in a few words I would say: Always choose to walk toward the light!
