Crossroads

Crossroads-Written by Stan Phillips

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAEvery road we choose to take in our life leads to some end. Good or bad, these roads are the direction we choose to take. However, think of the roads we choose not to travel. At the time when we approached some crossroad in our journey through life, our eyes were open to choose our destiny.

However, what of the alternative direction we did not choose to take? What adventure did we miss? What of the people we never meet? Think good and hard on that last question.

Whether, or not you want to believe the fact there are lines, and circles in everyone’s life…there are separations of worlds. I am not referring to colors, race, religion, social standing, or even politics. I am referring to the separation of your world from someone else’s. I am writing about the lines where you can only briefly cross to meet someone of another circle. Then, you find yourself hurled back into your world as if attached to some rubber band. This might go to explain alternate worlds…or parallel existences.

Let us go back to that crossroad. If we took the alternate direction, how would our life be different? First off, many of the people we now know…we would never have met. The game changes. We would now belong to a different circle.

The choices we make, determines the people we meet, or do not meet. The circle you belong to is not as big as you might think. Oh, you might know many people. However, how many would you actually count as being close?

Although, there may be a longing to become a part of another circle there are powers invoked here that will not allow it. The reason may be due to parallel worlds, or existences.

Maybe in another world, let’s call it “existence 1”, you actually belong to this other circle. However, because you belong to this other circle in “existence 1”, you are not allowed to remain in that circle for long in “existence 2”. This is done to keep the parallel worlds from colliding into one another, and being destroyed. Thus, an invisible barrier is erected to keep the parallel worlds apart, and to ensure that circles have specific boundaries.

Now, I’m not saying you might not belong to the same circle in parallel worlds. However, something is different between the two parallel worlds. The difference may be as small as how some members of that circle regard you. Although, you belong to that circle, you might be a leader in one…and an outcast in the other. The possible variables are endless, as are the number of parallel experiences. It all comes down to the roads we choose to follow and all the successive roads we turn down.

The question is, does each crossroad represent the chance for another parallel existence. If so, there are an endless number of parallel universes. Think of the combinations of a simple pair of dice. Then, add a third, or fourth, or even more dies…toss them. How many combinations are there then? With each road we take, our circle changes. Just with a simple choice of someone taking a road to the left and go to the right, the two of you might never meet until much later in life…or, never at all. In this case, everything hinges on the choices we and others make, and the directions we choose to follow. These decisions produce our, and their circle.

 

We Are Never Truly alone…

barn1(1)WE ARE NEVER TRULY ALONE… (written by Stan Phillips)

I believe we are never truly alone…as when we say we’re alone with our thoughts, or when we say we’re the last man standing. Maybe we feel alone at times because we do not see anyone else around to help us out of a bind.

For a moment, release yourself from the knowledge that we are the master of our destiny.

I think when we are faced with some unpleasant moment the answers do not always come from within us, but they also come from beyond ourselves. If you think about it, there is some logic in what I am saying. In these cases, we just do not have the answers so someone had better help.

Now, I for one believe that life goes forever even after we leave this world.

If that is so, just think of all the people that have passed through this world…loved ones, friends…and, even those we have never met but have a stake in what happens to us if the outcome affects someone they care for.

Of course, these souls, guides, guardian angels, or whatever you call them don’t have the powers to control things here on Earth…like wars… feminine…discrimination of any kind, and worldwide devastation…or, any crimes against humanity. They come to us, or are part of us as a reminder.

Considering the thought, they are a part of us. There is also the fact of lineage to consider. The family loved ones that came before us remain as a common reminder of what they brought about. Their wants, joys, and even fears are apart of us. As we are joined in life, so are we joined in death. Each family member that came before us are a part of our lineage. Thus, they are a part of us. So, are their mistakes, and successes that we must come to grips with ourselves. Some of which we must learn to avoid like a plague.

That might explain why some repeat the very same mistake that family members made before them. As the one’s before them found they were trapped by poor decisions, now they too are trapped by making the very same decision. Unless we heed the warning, we are doomed to repeat their mistakes. Thus, we must learn to avoid the traps and take a different path for our life.

On the matter of us being alone, that thought is utterly impossible for me to believe. Do you really think that inspiration comes from us alone? Or, is there someone guiding us if we listen. There is much to consider in sitting alone and just listening to the spirits sent from above.

However, be forewarned about listening to spirits. As there are good and bad deeds in the world, so are there good and bad spirits. As for that thought, that topic will wait for another time to be explored in beyond the norm.

I Believe Everything We Do…

DSCN2934I Believe Everything We Do… (written by Stan Phillips)

I believe everything we do lasts forever…as a testament of our existence…regardless of how mundane or special a moment might be. Yet, maybe there is a little more going on with life’s records than we are willing to grasp.

A little abstract thinking is now required.

Is it possible that we can be living upon more than one place in time creating all the moments that proclaim our existence?

Might we also be in some heavenly place, beyond time, looking down upon every moment of our existence as if it were some movie?

Now, if moments exist forever, consider a particular event in your life. At the very instant, this event took place we were experiencing life. If that moment exists forever, would it not follow that our life in that moment continues to exist?

I believe even though moments pass we still live on every moment we create…existing as a testament of our existence.

Could we then relive a moment numerous times, believing the action was new. We have all had the thought that new surroundings somehow seem all too familiar to us, as if we had been there before.

Well, maybe we have…more thoughts to consider.
