As time progresses
Our life not to be random
It is pilgrimage
As you progress in years you may realize that accomplishments of our life disappear into the past. not fully disappear, but kind of fade. The world lives in the present. Stars and heroes of the past are almost forgotten. They maybe important to you, but become less and less important to the people of the present day.
And yet we feel there must be something that leads to a conclusion, some thing valuable to our life. We want to find some epiphany, some great culmination of our efforts, sufferings and victories to our lives. Something that leaves us satisfied when the clock, our clock, stops.
This is what a pilgrim seeks: some enlightenment. some divine or joyous insight, an answer to the question that leaves us satisfied. The big question that is life itself. We are here, how do we answer that challenge? We are born into this life, what will we do about it?
I wish you well on your pilgrimage.
