    " The Infinite Life Fire"

    How awesome it is to observe the multi-layers of time ,pass in review; to see the endless forms of living things evolve , expand, and re-create themselves ever new ,ever different - yet the same .Example : The human embryo , so minute, evolves to infancy, to toddler , to child , to teenager , to young/ middle aged adult, and to the aged state . Each decade of its life is like the beads of a prayer band...each bead reflects a story of experience, unique and never quite the same from one Decade to another.
    The joy and sorrows , the inner death and resurrection, the tears of laughter, the smiles of happiness, the furrowed lines of confusion and / or fear , represent a finite journey destined to Infinite purpose - a purpose that continues to unfold, and expand itself , until ultimate perfection is achieved .
    One Day , like the Butterfly emerging from it's cocoon, so that finite embryo shall emerge from this state of illusion , and feel the great glory of itself in the perfect light of reality. It will rise on it's wings of glory and ride the endless light waves , until it achieves it's awesome destination , which is to join the countless numbers of it's species in the formation of a most exquisite tree - a symbol of eternal life .
    I see the tree...alive with colors too numerous to define, yet so wondrous to see. From somewhere, a voice speaks, "Embrace the tree. Feel its fragile beauty. Hear its delicate heartbeat. Listen to its song .It sings your life back to you. It is expression of who you are, have always been, and ever shall be - essence of the Infinite Life- Fire
    “Look closely, very closely, to the composition of the Butterfly. Note that each layer of it's wings reflects it's previous existence; while it's body represents the infinite Life-Fire that weaves the fabric of it's wings, and makes eternal the vision of beauty and color and motion, and purpose , of it's existence .
    “It is illusion to think that a butterfly lives but a day’s length. It moves, in reality, to to other dimensions of existence; and, if it chooses to do so, may reappear. Whenever you see a Butterfly - know that it comes with a gift for your eyes only....a fleeting reminder of, whom you are, and why; and that you will, indeed, pass this way again, until your earthly mission is completed.
    Remember always, that the Designer, the sustain er for the Butterfly is Love -The Infinite Life –Fire…Dancingfire ©

    I felt as though we sat face to face, a fire burned between us. I am the student and you the teacher of life. As I read your words, I noticed a weight lifted from my shoulders. You took me to that place of enlightenment. I missed that, TS

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

    Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
