So the question for today is this . . . what does the "circle of life" mean to you?
Five years ago, I moved back home to be part of "my" circle of life.
As we know . . . the word "circle" is a universal symbol that represents the notion of totality, wholeness, original perfection, the Self, the infinite, eternity, timelessness and all cyclic movement . . .
And God is a circle whose center is everywhere, but whose circumference is nowhere.
The circle of life . . . is the cycle of procreation . . . birth, life and death.
Which is an emblem that represents the deepest meaning of life itself.
This means . . . life, from beginning to end, resembles a complete full circle.
You see . . . the circle of life works with the cause and effect theory . . . If God becomes either your cause or effect . . . you come closer to the truth of life.
And the center of that circle represents the purity of love, where all souls will unite one day to total peace.
So I came home to take "my" place in the circle of life.
You see . . . to care for those who once cared for us . . .
Is one of the "highest honors" in life that can be bestowed upon us!
It was once said . . .
"Love your parents and treat them with loving care, for you will only know their value when you see their empty chair"!
It's a loving and complicated dance we do watching our parents age with grace . . .
And with this . . . we become protective in ways we never could imagine . . .
I find myself looking at my parent wondering . . . is this what I will become when I grow old?
And then I think . . . one could only hope to be blessed with such a precious goal!
We live in crazy times and have become a society that gets swallowed up in our day to day journey of pettiness, distraction and self righteousness . . . and many times we lose sight of what's really important . . .
And that would be completing the circle of life . . .
And that means with all the elderly . . . not just the ones that made our life possible.
So don't let "life get in the way" of "your" circle . . . because one day you too will be the elderly.
Be there for the aging . . .
Put a smile on their face . . .
And give them something to look forward to . . . YOU!
