Got money in your pockets? No..? Good!
But you do have TIME in your pockets, right? That's even better!
Yesterday I saw an old man, a retiree. He was feeding the pigeons.
His smile so wide you would think he won the lottery. I didn't get why he was so happy about it, but it hit me later.
It's his HIGHLIGHT of the day. Yup. Feeding the birds, that's what he lives for, maybe his grandkids too, but they are probably too busy playing videogames and ignoring the real-life around them. Deception.
I felt sad. I even cried but I had my sunglasses on, looking all cool and sh¡t but behind those shades, deep down tears of awareness emerged.
That guy right there doesn't have much time left, but he seemed unbothered by this fact. He finds peace in the simple, little things, like feeding the pigeons. His energy and vibe infected me, isn't it suppose to be the other way around? It was like a wake-up slap. Not the physical, that one doesn't hurt, but the mental. Visit your grandparents. Makes me feel good and wise saying it but I don't do it quite often either. Lots of young people were around him that day but not in the exact same moment and reality he was in. They were looking ungrateful, ugly souls covered up with somewhat beautiful faces. What for? They have time, right? I think they also have a lot of things that ROBS them out of that time. So the next time you start wondering about what should you do? Just go ahead and do it! Time is the most expensive currency there is and so many of us don't know how to use it.

Maybe the old man was enjoying feeding the pigeons so much because he knows that his true nature is spirit/soul, who are eternal and immortal, like God. That all Eternity is his and that the concept of time only exists on the earthly plane of life. And that, to him, is no more than a school, a place of learning . . . No more, no less.

It's a wonderful effort!

All the best for your writing and yourself.

With love and light,
Aquarius
