I’m giving thanks for another year almost coming to a close. In 52 days (but who’s counting?) I’ll turn 64 years of age on this earth. I’ve looking forward to singing “When I’m 64” by the Beatles at my birthday celebration! One of the lines in the song for anyone who isn’t familiar with it is “Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I’m 64?”
To whom would I be asking this question? Friends? Relatives? Spirit?
Perhaps I would ask my Self. Hey Self..will you still need me? Will you still feed me? I can answer unequivocally “YES” to that question. My Self (the truth of who I am, not the “self” which I would call the ego) needs me…needs my body, my mind and my heart in order to express the truth of who I am. And I’m very much loving the sustenance with which I’m being fed.
Those who hunger and thirst for the truth find it. It’s my mission, my purpose in life to continue to express the truth of who I am in every moment of every day. Do I always find that I’m living my purpose? Mostly, but I do have epic fails from time to time — keeps me on my toes and ever vigilant.
And so it goes.
