Across The Universe

Love, Life & Time are three gifts beyond measure. They are unknowns as to exactly how much we are allotted, and yet limitless in their potential.
If I were to live forever (which I believe we do), even if I am allowed to travel the whole of God’s creation, throughout this universe and beyond, the limitations of this present moment make this seemingly insignificant life all the more profound. Considering the limited opportunities to encounter and affect so many other immortal travelers like myself, makes the choices made within the construct of time so much more vital.
It is absurdly selfish to assume that even those who love me deeply; the most sincerely, would always travel through infinity in the same direction as I.
That makes this “time” we travel together so much sweeter, important, and precious.
I do not intend to offend those who take Genesis 1 literally. I do believe God could have created everything in only six days had He chosen to do so. I merely believe that He is more patient and infinitely wiser than a literal interpretation gives Him credit.
And if you love God, or anyone else, you would come to understand, as I believe, the science behind billions of years to create the world and life systems upon it, make a much more romantic account than the simple story Moses told in Genesis.
What I mean is this. In taking billions and billions of years to bring you and me into existence means that God chose the perfect time in space and all of history to introduce Himself to me; to you, and everyone else. Even if you don’t believe, the odds of random chance are too great to fathom that you have in all eternity met that someone special to love, or that loves you.
I ask you as just another simple traveler to make the most of every opportunity.
