The Epic in Us



the longing to be epic

the longing to be epic: we are on the stage already

Oh there is something in us that longs to be epic.  You can see it in the way we live and move and have our being.  Even driving down the road feels epic to us with the right movie soundtrack playing from the iPod deck.  we long for what we do to be important, to take energy and give energy, to have a pulse.

I want to be epic.  I want to be epic but I long for my bed and I ache for my home.  Faithfulness is epic, but when the little things come I want to pass them by and distract my pain while I wait for something bigger.

But my life here and now is the something bigger. There isn’t anything else coming because there doesn’t need to be anything else coming.  I am in the movie.  I am the script.  I live the plot and I love the moments.  My new hypothesis is that everyone’s life is a movie but some haven’t been distributed yet.

    and yes, you are right!

    just today I thought what a gift it is to being able to put (especially mixed) feelings into fitting words; giving everyone the opportunity to have a look into your thoughts and soul. Sometimes such gifted ppl helped me to understand my self by giving my feelings names. Because then I was able to grab those emotions and/or ‘approach’ them.
