Random thoughts on The Mundane Moments in life and Every Day Sacredness;

Random thoughts on the mundane moments in life and every day sacredness;

We all take life for granted and we hear this all the time, reminding us to be grateful for
all that we have! But I’ll let you in on another secret; we have to! If we didn’t how could most of us pick ourselves up out of bed in the mornings and go about our lives? The Bible says live each day as if it was our last, and keep our house in order! This is true that we should do this, but it is also true that we shouldn’t think about it! Dwelling on dying is how people convince themselves to stop living! Fear of death prevents us from Love of Life! If we knew the exact moment we were going to die, nothing would seem to matter anymore besides that! Every moment should be precious, and every moment should also be mundane! Going about our lives as if we were immortal isn’t wrong, it is a vital imperative! This doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t stop and smell the roses, or count our blessings with gratitude! No, far from it! Because if we look at every mundane moment as sacred, we will live in appreciation! There is a famous movie called “The Crow”, where the main character; a ghost of sorts, utters one of the truest lines ever uttered in a movie, “Little things used to mean so much to Shelly, I used to think they were kind of trivial; Believe me, nothing is trivial”!

All those little mundane moments add up to make the story of a life! We carry those stories with us into the next life. They are for us, not for those we leave behind! They have their own stories to write and to remember! We don’t necessarily forget our dead! We often carry them with us and they become part of our stories! But neither should we live in their shadow! Life is for the Living! All the stories of all of those who went before us, most of them have been forgotten, and yet because they all helped to inform our own, those people still Live within us! However focusing on their stories, is not as important as writing our own! So, Live each moment as if it were your last, and keep pretending you have all the time in the world! Make that time count for something! Make that memory to last for yourself! In the end, that memory is not only what we leave behind, but what we carry with us! That memory is what changes us, and it is also what changes the world and everyone in it, whether or not they ever realize it! Make the memory count!


Quote from the film “American Beauty”;
“I'd always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die. First of all, that one second isn't a second at all. It stretches on forever, like an ocean of time. For me, it was lying on my back at Boy Scout Camp, watching falling stars. And yellow leaves from the maple trees that lined our street. Or my grandmother's hands, and the way her skin seemed like paper. And the first time I saw my cousin Tony's brand-new Firebird. And Janie... and Janie. And... Carolyn. I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me, but it's hard to stay mad when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it. And then it flows through me like rain. And I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life. You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. But don't worry, you will someday”.

"Dance like no one is watching, love like you'll never be hurt, sing like no one is listening, and live like it's heaven on earth."- William Purkey
