Rite of Passage 2017-49
The change from one aspect of life to another, but it can take a meaning in so many ways of life. When the social standing is affected by the “Rite of Passage”, then we can look at the “Self” in a different way than before it happened.
We all have experienced this ritual of life that changed us so very much in the process. This can occur for others to see and experience with us or it can be of a secluded event for only ourselves to be affected and known.
For me, it is one, which I have been blessed or made more whole, but most definitely it changed me in many ways.
Years now since it began, the Rite slowly evolved, adapted, tweaked, and became what it is today. A journey of life everlasting. One that is mine to own, accept, attest to, take credit for, in its endeavors.
I have become more introspective, much more caring toward others, less aggressive, having a feeling of humbleness, with less prejudice, and more contentment, and above all having love towards others, all others.
Again, I claim this “Rite of Passage” as my own, mine to ponder, enjoy and live to its fullest.
I jump up and over from one stone to another in getting closer to God and Jesus Christ. I visit one room of life and continue to the next, opening and closing doors to experience the ramifications of what each has to offer and how I can become closer to the One I love.
There have been setbacks, two steps forward and one behind, but overall, it has been one of getting closer and closer to God in the process. The realization that it is about ME was inspirational when I finally realized it as such. It was, and is, not necessarily about me with others, even though others are part of the equation.
The journey was long in coming, and since it began, it has been more than interesting and wonderful, and truly enlightening. My journey began March 3, 2010 and the “Rite of Passage” began at that time. Time does fly by for all of us, and it is hard to contemplate that it has taken me so long to realize the things I know now.
Sometimes the ritual of life does have a long and tenuous experience of time, and I do not regret the time it took, or is taking, but instead relish existence of the Rite in all its glory and consequences.
Life is good, God is Great, and life goes on.
