Bright Space


by Dane Allred

You have something you need to accomplish.

You may even have a good idea what it is.

It may be something you have been working towards your whole life.

It may be something that only takes a few days to accomplish.

But whatever it is,

The world remains changed forever after.

You are here for a reason.

There is something you have to do.

What does it feel like when you have finally reached that point?

There is that sense of satisfaction,

The knowledge you have made a difference.

The incredible surety you feel that what you are doing is right,

And you are doing it for the right reason.

It is an incredible and satisfying feeling,

A kind of euphoria.

When you have reached the highest point

The zenith,

There may be half of the trip still in front of you.

The culmination of a lifetime of work

Isn’t the end.

There is always something after.

The relief of having accomplished what you intended to do.

But often the glow of success is often followed by a letdown.

We all have those zeniths in our life where an incredible rush of excitement is followed by the lull of what comes afterwards.

We were all together in the Bright Space before,

Heady with the excitement of this new adventure called life.

We came here to learn all we can learn,

To someday return to that Bright Space

And realize we have accomplished our purpose;

To know all there is to know.

I am here to help you reach that zenith.

You are here to help me accomplish what it is I need to do.

In a life filled with possibilities,

There are so many things to be done.

We are here to do them.

Maybe we will have many different kinds of zeniths in this life.

Now there are seven billion of us on this journey together.

There is nothing we cannot accomplish.

What can I do to help you reach your zenith?
