Default Life on a Train

One of those sentimental mushy finds, that puts it all in perspective!







1. Life on the train A while back, I read a very interesting book that compared life to a train ride or a series of train rides .
2. Life is like a train ride, it read. We get on. We ride. We get off. We get back on and ride some more. There are accidents and there are delays. At certain stops there are surprises. Some of these will translate into great moments of joy, some will result in profound sorrow.
3. When we are born and we first board the train, we meet people whom we think will be with us for the entire journey. Those people are our parents!
4. Sadly, this is far from the truth. Our parents are with us for as long as we absolutely need them. They too have journeys they must complete. We live on with the memories of their love, affection, friendship, guidance and their ever presence.
5. There are others who board the train and who eventually become very important to us, in turn.
6. These people are our brothers, sisters, friends and acquaintances, whom we will learn to love, and cherish.
7. Some people consider their journey like a jaunty tour. They will just go merrily along .
8. Others, will encounter many upsets, tears, losses on their journey. Others still, will linger on to offer a helping hand to anyone in need.
9. Some people on the train will leave an everlasting impression when they get off. Some will get on and get off the train so quickly, they will scarcely leave a sign that they ever travelled along with you or ever crossed your path
10. We will sometimes be upset that some passengers whom we love, will choose to sit in another compartment and leave us to travel on our own. Then again, theres nothing that says we cant seek them out anyway.
11. Nevertheless, once sought out and found, we may not even be able to sit next to them because that seat will already be taken .
12. Thats okay everyones journey will be filled with hopes, dreams, challenges, setbacks and goodbyes. We must strive to make the best of it no matter what...
13. We must constantly strive to understand our travel companions and look for the best in everyone.
14. Remember that at any moment during our journey, any one of our travel companions can have a weak moment and be in need of our help.
15. We too may vacillate or hesitate, even trip hopefully we can count on someone being there to be supportive and understanding
16. The bigger mystery of our journey is that we dont know when our last stop will come. Neither do we know when our travel companions will make their last stop. Not even those sitting in the seat next to us.
17. Personally, I know Ill be sad to make my final stop. Im sure of it! My separation from all those friends and acquaintances I made during the train ride will be painful. Leaving all those Im close to will be a sad thing. But then again, Im certain that one day Ill get to the main station only to meet up with everone else. Theyll all be carrying their baggage most of which they didnt have when they first got on this train.
18. Ill be glad to see them again. Ill also be glad to have contributed to their baggage and to have enriched their lives, just as much as they will have contributed to my baggage and enriched my life.
19. Were all on this train ride together. Above all, we should all try to strive to make the ride as pleasant and memorable as we can, right up until we each make the final stop and leave the train for the last time.
20. All aboard! Safe journey!! BON VOYAGE!

What this world really needs is more artists and environmentalists!



"Its only 'here' that we lose perspective, out at the Cosmic Consciousness Level things get a lot clearer. For example, there is an actual star pattern that is traced in the shape of a Willow Tree, across the breadth of the Milky Way! And no wonder Indigenous peoples refer to the 'here after' as the Happy Hunting Grounds! Has it ever occured to anyone why the bioluminescence dots, on the Na'vi!"
