Life and contrast
What is life without contrast?
Contrast allows us to reflect on the blessings in our life.
It is there to present both sides, in-out, good-bad, up-down.
Even though contrast can represent adversities and challenges it also represents the beauty of nature.
It provides opportunity for inner growth.
And that my friend is what this life is all about.
How else can we see what needs to be changed?
Contrast shows us.
There has always been much contrast in the world, and with social media, it is quickly exposed and to more people.
Most of it can be hard to witness, and witness we must for it’s the only way to make changes.
I returned to my home town of San Francisco, I hadn’t been there for about 15 years.
I went for a dear friend’s memorial.
A life was taken too soon.
A long term solution to a short term problem.
A beautiful life cut short.
While others are still being lived.
There’s contrast in that.
Life is short and and seeming long when we are in the midst of a problem, an adversity or some such.
It is in the remembering that whatever is happening,
it will pass, the good-bad, or the up-down.
It’s ever present to witness.
See the value in the contrast.
Each moment is precious and fleeting.
