Today’s insights will quickly disappear into a thousand tomorrows.
Even the insights that had been hoped and prayed for, for a decade or more, will fade with time. You may remember them, but they won’t have the same power a week from now as they did today.
But that doesn’t make them irrelevant. That does not mean they were a waste.
The Universe is so generous with us that it will happily give us something that speaks to us today, and then tomorrow, and then the day after. Sure, there may be seasons of drought, but on balance, the insights will keep coming.
What we so often forget is that we don’t necessarily need a better interpretation of the past. We need a better understanding of today. Because a better understanding of today can lead to a breakthrough over the past.
What’s much harder to do is to remain grateful for all of it. To keep thanking the Universe for the insights that are coming now, and now, and now. Because they keep coming if we make space for them. That’s how patient and generous the Universe is.
