“O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring;
Of the endless trains of the faithless—of cities fill’d with the foolish;
Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?)
Of eyes that vainly crave the light—of the objects mean—of the struggle ever renew’d;
Of the poor results of all—of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me;
Of the empty and useless years of the rest—with the rest me intertwined;
The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life?
I watched the movie “Dead Poet’s Society” recently. The above quote was one of the greatest lines in the movie. It got me thinking about what it is I am here to contribute. “What is my verse?” As we move forward evolving into a new consciousness, how do I play a part in creating positive change?
I take small, and sometimes not so small, steps in my process of transformation. I know I have come a long way in a relatively short period of time. Yet, there is a part of me that feels that I haven’t even begun to tap into the calling that I am here to fulfill. There is something bigger that I am here to contribute to.
Until I figure that out, I continue the process of healing and transforming myself, so that what radiates from me transforms and heals whoever I connect with along my journey. As I walk this road, if my life can be about that and about deepening my sense of connection to others, to the planet and to the universe, this would be the verse I would want to contribute to this powerful play.
