Meditations: “Meditation on Eternal Life

Also appropriate as Meditations

Do you seek eternal life?
Would you accept it if you knew it was already yours?

None of us knows what the future may bring.
None of us knows the hour of our passing.
But this we may know—
Eternal life is ours, here and now.

Look within this moment.
Its span of time may be the briefest of instants.
But look within, plumb its depths,
And you will know that they are infinite.

This eternal moment contains all of the history of the world, All of humanity’s joy, sorrow, hope, anger, cruelty, and compassion.
It is a gift, offered for the taking.
