Follow the sun?

After reading sunbreeze's entry today, it made me think a little about life and aging.
He was quoting the song "Forever Young"... and the words
Forever young, I want to be forever young
do you really want to live forever?

struck a chord in me.

"do i really want to live forever?"
Upon a flicker of deliberation, i realised that i wouldn't even dream of living forever.
With eternity life has no value; it would simply be taken for granted. And it's a revelation how things, when view from our very parochial perspective seem so ideal, so perfect...
but are seriously flawed. We cannot see the larger picture.

I am running on a track. I am moving forward. Is the track moving towards me at the same time?
Concurrent, the globe is spinning round the sun; and the sun is probably orbiting around the galaxy.
So where am I really moving towards?

See an empty room in the dark. The dimmer is adjusted and the room grows brighter.
See more details. And that's the passage of life. We see more as we grow older.... and that's life...

Blabbering again... doh.
Oh well, there's this interesting song by the Beatles... shall dedicate to sun for his birthday then... how apt!

I'LL FOLLOW THE SUN
One day you'll look to see I've gone.
For tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun.
Some day you'll know I was the one.
But tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun.
And now the time has come
And so my love I must go.
And though I lose a friend,
In the end you'll know, oooh.
One day you'll find that I have gone.
For tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun.
Yes, tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun.
And now the time has come
And so my love I must go.
And though I lose a friend,
In the end you'll know, oooh.
One day you'll find that I have gone.
For tomorrow may rain, so I'll follow the sun.

In the prayer of St Francis it is said that in dying We recieve eternal life. I take that to mean that both death and life are eternal. That is being is living because it includes dying, it includes change. We may fear dying when the changes of death are imposed and not chosen. Where change is not imposed it is then sought after. Were death not for certain We would certainly seek it. Seeking life is seeking death.

I feel old and jaded all the time :P

the track's running away from you, while you're running towards it at a slightly faster speed....you're moving forward but just barely...

and oh, most ppl prefer to have the lights off....
