About the Book
And This Too
More of What This Life Is About
Surendra James Conti
Things change. Even within the illusion of time, every moment, and every atom within it, is different than in the moment before. The universe, by nature, is relentlessly in flux. It is God’s dream, and God dreams in motion.
Things change, and as they do, we get on with getting on or off. The whole of life is a dance, and although the tune is not always ours to call, we can give it our best. It’s not about skill or style. It’s about committing to live in joy.
This book, And This Too, is who I am, a further account of my thoughts as the shuffle of tunes has played around and within me, sometimes sweetly and sometimes not. Perhaps you will find this something of your book too.
The reason we are here, in this dream of body and mind, is because we have yet to become who we truly are.
The difference between a writer and one who isn’t, is that writing for the writer takes far more time and fewer words to finish.
We may accidently make a foolish mistake, but we do not accidentally make it again. It becomes a choice.
Everything passes away, moving by the moment in route to Eternity’s edge. We are losing ground even as we seem to gain it. This frightens us, but why? Why do we forget to sing of that which does not die?
What is it for, this passing away, if not to wake us to the life that is forever, to the song of our immortality and the bliss that our mortal living has resisted?
