What is the circle of Life?
This is a question every one of us has asked at some point in our lives and we all seek to find the answers – but are there any and if so what are they?
There are many who seek the meaning of life through religion, science, or in whatever means that they feel will fulfil, or answer, this question!
So, what is this circle of Life?
Life is different to each one of us and the answers we seek can be simple if we only look to ourselves, look inwards, within…
In life there is only what you know – not only of the world and how it functions but the secret life within yourself as well. Our senses and what we see go to make up our whole being.
The past weekend, for me, was Life!
The weather was so lovely and warm, a cool breeze and sunny skies. I went for a drive on Saturday in the country, stopped off for lunch in a quaint cafe (glorious food) and then made my way home. The countryside was very dry but the sights to see were amazing – vivid green trees, country lanes, sheep sheltering from the sun under huge trees, cattle grazing in the pastures even saw Alpacas and goats (lots of these types of farms around Christchurch). There was no hustle and bustle and on the country lanes there was only the odd car (until nearing home on the motorway). The blue sky was bright with no clouds and the falcons were out in the clear air looking for some prey.
What a glorious reprieve from day-to-day life – for me this is part of my circle Life!
But for you it is something else so… just what is your circle of life?
On Sunday mum and I went to the Christchurch Botanical Gardens, sat in the sun having morning tea, moved onto the museum where we had lunch watching, from the top floor, all the people enjoying this beautiful oasis (in a city with much vacant land and broken buildings) before continuing our walk. On our walk we saw a mother bird, a Fantail, flitting here-and-there gathering insects for her two tiny, fluffy chicks – it was an amazing sight. Here were two baby birds trustingly perched up high, waiting and knowing that they would be fed and cared for. There was also a beautiful Thrush but sadly it’s leg had been broken! It seemed fine and was hopping around on the ground eagerly awaiting crumbs, from our morning tea – it had adapted to its injury and was carrying on fending for itself. We then saw a child in a wheel chair, her mother pushing her around the gravel paths – she was laughing joyously pointing out the many sights to see, there was an old lady with a stick sitting with her husband – they had a thermos, cups and a picnic baskets.
There were many others out and about feeling the beauty of the day, experiencing the circle of Life, each in their own way.
This is just what Life is – we each have our own!
So, what is the Circle of Life?
It can be found in the daisy hiding in the grass, and the swift bird high up above.
Life is the moon shining down upon us from the nigh time sky and the fallen snow upon the trees.
It is the sunlit grove where tiny animals hide and the wonderful world where we abide.
So, go and experience your Circle of Life, experience it in your own way…
Live it, taste it and enjoy it through your own eyes, as let us all remember that each of us has a different dream within us so, live and follow it to the full!
So… enjoy forming and living your very own Circle of Life my friends – Ruth
