The soldier and I over the weekend. He’s a Pisces rising…
“So what do you think it means that you and I wind up here almost 30 years later?” I asked. We were walking back from convenience store eating life savers. “Exactly what do you make of it?”
“Well you can make choices in your life. And the choices can be right at the time or some of them can be wrong but no matter what you do you can’t escape your destiny.”
“Well yeah, don’t you think? I think us being here together proves you can’t escape your destiny. I don’t care what we do, we’re not getting out of this. For example, you can kick me out again or I can leave you I suppose. But even if this is what we do I still think we’ll wind up in an old folks home together.”
“So then we’re 90 and we look at each other and think why didn’t we get this together when we were in our 40’s? Or in our teens?”
“Yeah. Except it doesn’t matter. P. It doesn’t matter what we do. We’re going to be together for a billion years anyway.”
“A billion? You actually think that?”
“Me and you? A billion years? Yeah, I think that. We have all the time in the world. This world or any other worlds that might be out there”
As soon as he said this I realized it was applicable to anything and everything. For example, what if you thought you had a billion years to solve your problem? Would you relax about it? And if you relaxed might the problem be easier to solve or even solve itself?
What if instead of a month, you had a billion years to lose that last 10 pounds? Would this help you?
