Riding a Shining Star
by Stewart Bitkoff
Age Group: Adult
Sometimes life makes you laugh and just shake your head. Sometimes it just kicks you in the butt or in this case, lower back.
For example, last week when I thought events were going badly with my health- un-expectantly another dimension was added. I was bending over to pick-up a leaf on our property and my lower back went out; doctor said probably slipped a disc. Besides the pain and discomfort involved I simply cannot get around as well as I should. Stacking this problem beside my other medical issues, this one jumped right to the head of the line. Sometimes when you think things cannot possibly get worse, think again . . .
I guess the message in all this for me is to remember: be grateful for what I do have and not spend too much time bemoaning the effects of growing older and chronic illness.
Somehow, even for an instant rise higher- go outside into the sunshine and breath deep the clean air. Call out your own name loud and clear. Remember you are a child of the universe and rise and fall with its many ebbs and flows. Yes, there is a tomorrow and one day you will be riding a shining star across the galaxy.
In that moment, REMEMBER you are much more than your pain and suffering: you are an immortal soul-a child of the universe.
