All Things Are Temporary?

All things are temporary yet nothing really ever dies, it just changes form. Isn't that true? The simplest examples of this is boiling water turning into steam or a leaf turning into soil. The changing of form eventually applies to everything we can see in this world. What's interesting is, what happens to the things we can't see? Things like our thoughts, our emotions, our feelings, our mind(not to be confused with our brain) and our soul. You might say, you can see my thoughts by reading these words. I don't think so. I am just trying to describe my thoughts to you the same way someone would describe a sunset to a blind man. A partial description at best but not an actual visual. If you agree that the things we can see never die then wouldn't that be true for the things we can't see? Do these unseen things also change form? What could they possibly change into? Maybe they never do change at all but continue to exist. Maybe we can't communicate with them after we "die" because their visual parts have changed form. I guess these unseen things are what distinguishes us humans from the rest of what can be seen in the world.

Martin Says........Protect, nurture, and keep healthy your unseen things while you can, for they may be the only things you have left when your body changes form.

The Present

Where do they come from and where do they go, these things we call years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, seconds......? What are they anyway? They don't exist in nature. The animals, birds and bees seem to survive and thrive in the world without them. Besides, isn't there just the past, present and future? Maybe not even that. The past and future I can relate to and quantify in current human terms but it is the present that is hard to capture in real time. It goes by so fast. Oh yeah, I can capture what once was the present in a photo but then that becomes the past when I look at it. When someone ask what time it is I have a hard time giving them a specific time because by the time I respond, the time or present has changed. Peoples lives change in a split second everyday with auto accidents, new born's first cry and in many other ways. In current human terms how long is the present? Is it a second, millisecond, nanosecond or maybe there is no present at all. Maybe there is just the past and future.

Martin says........ Throw away your calendar and watch and be in synch with nature, remember the past, look forward to the future and as it has been said before consider the Present a gift from God.
