THE UNFOLDING                                     

 

What has happened - has happened before - and will happen again

 

You have been here before, and will be here again

 

Your face will be different, your standing - perhaps your gender

 

But it will be you

 

Intuition, impulses - they are memories

 

You are attracted by the way someone wears his or her hair

 

You glance into the light in someone’s eyes, and recognize something

 

What?

 

What you recognize is something different

 

Something different that you know

 

Something you know

 

Though

 

That is not different

 

Ever

 

Not before, not after and not now

 

Is the other

 

The other is - and always will be - the same

 

S/he is always out there

 

A star on the horizon of your being

 

Without even being aware of it, as you engage in idle conversation,

 

You are constantly glancing up and away – to the horizon

 

Always remaining aware of his or her movement

 

For like eagles, ospreys and wolves you have mated for life

 

For all lives – every life - you have one true mate

 

Your other half

 

It is s/he that truly makes you whole

 

Yes, the pieces get moved around. Decisions have to be made

 

Decisions of consequence

 

Each one triggering a ripple effect into the future and the past

 

And after each one - after each and every decision

 

You unconsciously glance up and away - searching

 

Searching as the constant unfolding continues

 

Every time you think it is done you realize

 

There is another panel to open

 

More decisions to be made

 

Decisions of consequence

 

One day though, it will be over

 

It will be done.

 

Your work on this tier will be complete.

 

And as you roll down the grass covered hill in each other’s arms

 

Under clear blue skies, finally coming to a rest at the bottom

 

You look into the other’s eyes and recognize something tangled up in all the laughter.

 

Something different

 

Something the same

 

What?

 

 

It is you!
