The Waves of Eternity

Updated: Nov 29, 2022

Have you ever stood at the ocean’s edge on a balmy evening, comfortably alone, bare feet in the warm lapping waves, looking with open mind and wondering eyes at the starry night sky? You feel the waves of eternity gently lapping the shores of time on earth.

Your bare feet are comfortably rooted in the sandy ground, the swirling waves an unconscious reminder of the source of life. You are part of the earth, and you feel safe.

You are at peace as your mind focuses on the brightest points of light, looking for patterns, not knowing what’s out there. You feel young and ancient at the same time.

Your mind drifts along the millions of stars in the Milky Way, and struggles with the incalculable immensity of what you are viewing. You are part of the cosmos. You wonder if we are alone in this vast starry universe.

But then you think, no, there must be other intelligent life in all that vastness, life that is like us, or maybe different. If we exist in this seemingly endless universe, then there must be countless other beings existing right now like you and me on worlds more numerous than all the grains of sand on all the beaches of our planet Earth.

And you know what?

You’re right!
