Arrival triggers
immediate departure:
Life’s punctuation …

As death punctuates
our infinite stream of life:
Commas, period …

The destinations
amidst myriad journeys:
Each, a stepping stone …

On an endless path
of becoming and guiding.
The journey’s at heart.

On meaning

With each arrival at a destination, our journey — always spiraling upward — immediately begins anew. All that is reached, even death, is just a stepping stone on the path forward. Immerse yourself in the journey, this now moment, as it is from here that fulfillment and expansion springs.
