As the Prophet goes by THE MEASURELESS AND THE IMMEASURABLE

Of time you would make a stream upon whose bank you would sit and watch its flowing.
Yet the timeless in you is aware of life's timelessness.
And knows that yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream.
And that which sings and contemplates within you is still dwelling within the bounds of that first moment which scattered the stars into space.
Who among you does not feel that his power to love is boundless?

 
~ Kahlil Gibran, "The Prophet"
 
 
 
In the grand stream of things
you are a stone being tumbled
worn smooth not of imperfections
but of that which slows the water  
as it flows around, so that your life
becomes much smoother, rather
than keeping events long desired
at bay with current deflections
 
And it may take hitting  
rock bottom once in a while
 
Or it may take several
lifetimes passing you by
 
What your life can be now
is as boundless as the sea
 
All the time in the Universe
was made for you and me
 
In the grand stream of things
you are just a stone being tumbled
