A REVELATION THAT COMES IN TIME

By Al Garcia

It is the winter of my existence.  I feel the cold surrounding and embracing me.  Each moment soothing, welcomed and expected.  Yet, I am apprehensive of what will come and when.

Years of brooding anticipation now greeted with awkward acceptance of the finality of my presence in a dream begun before I ever came to be.  How I hunger to understand the reason why.  How I long to see beyond the days that lay ahead, long after I am gone.  It is the winter of my life, and I have just begun to feel the completeness of who I was meant to be. 

And so, it is at this most irrelevant of times, when life has already passed me by, that I finally pause to give thought and reflection to the probabilities, possibilities and promises that collaborated to make the whole of me.  I think back to the time gone by and wonder if I was just a dream in someone’s mind that escaped the boundaries of its surrealness, and ventured out and dreamed another dream of the me I was, or would someday be.

I now have time to reflect and contemplate each moment of my life without regret, but with some concern of what I may come upon, as I search and explore the very core of me and my existence.  I do not know where my journey may lead me or what I may discover along the way.  Yet, I sense within me the urge to find what I lost or missed along my journey to where I am today.

My journey has just begun.  It starts with the premise that I was meant to be.  A simple yet profound acceptance of a divine design beyond my intellectual grasp or pious insignificance of my existence.  I was born.  I’ve lived.  And now, as time begins to slow the beating of my heart, I begin to reflect upon the purpose and upon the reason why I came to be, and how the irrelevance of my life was a dream of long ago by unseen and forgotten faces and unheard and silenced voices. 

We all come upon this moment in our lives, when we begin to look back in time to attempt to find answers or keys that will open new insights into untouched or forgotten portions of our lives.  I have reached that moment in my life.  And I have found that it is my mind that holds the secret to the source that is me, and you, and the vast expanse that lies beyond the stars. 

It is frightening to imagine the journey that lies ahead, yet it is one that has been taken by so many for so long.  It is the human experience of challenges, struggles and triumphs that gives us the ability to move on beyond the confines of our being.  And yet, the greatest test is the courage to accept the unacceptable, the unknown, the unfamiliar, and the ability to embrace the ageless, changeless and unending actuality that lies beyond the light that beckons.

A revelation that comes in time, is that this is not life, but rather, simply our journey to life.
