If you were to die tonight,
What will you have done
To make life easier for someone
Whom you don’t know yet?
Life opened its total being
And embraced each of us
With no expectation other than that
Each of us would reciprocate that embrace.
At some time, Life will again open its total being,
And welcome us back
Whether we have shared its abundance,
Or saw only lack.
I ran across this word "WRAY" quite on purpose.
Of course, I did not literally run across this word, since it is not a physical entity until I (or someone else) writes it.
But then, it is only a series of letters, generated by electrical impulses in our brain,
and how the brain does that is still under investigation.
Anyway, I liked the letter combinations available: WAY, RAY, or just WRAY,
which does show up in various dictionaries defined as:
"Wray (v.t.) To reveal, to disclose."
Wray is a very intelligent, sweet, nice, joker guy.
He is always there for you no matter what.
He does not judge people.
He holds his head up high and has made it through some of life’s toughest battles.
If he can make it through that he can make it through anything!
And various others also.
Considering the definitions of this rather antiquated word, let’s add our own observation:
A WRAY is a Way with a Ray; or a way that has been or is illuminated.
My father once told my mother that, “Roy has his way of doing everything.” I took that as a compliment (scrawny little kid needed all the encouragement he could conjure up). But then, don’t we all have our own wrays? This is just a play on words, isn’t it? But, when we seriously consider what we think we know about life, it is all a play with words. One could say that commonly perceived consciousness is nothing but the ability to play with words in our heads. After all,
