Messenger By Kyo Life changes Nothing is permanent Do not hold too tightly to anyone or anything For eventually it will slip through your grasp like the wind But know that you will be provided for Every opportunity, Every resource, Every person you will need Will be made available to you For this is a journey A mystery A never-ending series of lessons for the spirit You are here to live To learn To love And to experience It will not be without pain or suffering And it will not be without joy and warmth But these are only temporary things Simply steps in the path Forever seek the mystery Knowing that you are surrounded by both light and lover Both within And without...
