Five Minute Friday - Turn


File:Kaleidoscopes.jpg

Life is like a kaleidoscope.

Every moment of every day life turns.

Just as the turn of a kaleidoscope sets up a new pattern, each turn we take in life, sets up a new path for us.

And where all components of the kaleidoscope are interlinked to create the pattern, so all our lives are interlinked. In fact all of creation is interlinked, each individual action affecting the whole.

And like the colours fade and are enhanced, sometimes our lives take a prominent role in the whole and sometimes we take a back seat. But all colours exist in each and create the overall effect. So our lives create and affect the whole.

So let all our actions be for the good of all and let all actions be done in love.

Elton John's song sums this up nicely ...

There's a time for everyone, if they only learn
That the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn.

  1. your post makes me think of a line I read in a book once... a gal was hesitantly talking to a crowd and heckler was causing problems. and the heckler caused her to steal her resolve. Afterwards she talked with her mentor type person asking Why.. why some people were like that. And her mentor said "perhaps he was created for such a time as this"... and she asked why? He made you bolder yes? and so in the book she was bolder and the course of a nation was changed. it was a rather neat book and speaks to what you say here. One nasty heckler changed the course of a nation.

  2. It makes me realize how connected we all are, in the broader sense....And hence so important that whatever we do is for good....Thought provoking

  3. Definitely yes, our actions must come from love. Well said.
    However, I couldn't agree totally on the former half of the sentence. I believe one cannot do good to all at all times.

    1. Thanks Nisha. Actually our actions should be in the interests of all, sometimes taking a stance that is unpopular can also be for the good of all.

  6. Oh, I thought I posted here already Suzy! I love your analogy of life to a kaleidoscope. In fact, I think the universe is based on mathematics - patterns and such! ;) <3

  7. That's a beautiful thought. If only everyone realizes it and act withlove and care, imagine the chain of good events we would be able to trigger. Loved those lyrics by Elton John

  10. That's a powerful analogy, Suzy. I particularly appreciate the part about colours fading and becoming stronger, speaks so well of the shades of life. Nicely done!
