‘The good die young.’
I don’t know where the saying comes from,
or what it means exactly.
Maybe it means that a ‘good’ soul will always remain
young at heart,
will retain its youthful essence
no matter what age it is
when it advances through to its next phase.
Or maybe it means that a truly ‘good’ soul
will always be destined to proceed to its next phase
at a stage in its present form that
may seem premature.
Possibly because it is already
and capable enough,
Much sooner than the average soul might be.
this is a notion that surely cannot always hold true,
or may well not be valid at all.
But maybe in some cases it is.
a soul can emerge that is
and so talented,
it is emboldened to wield it’s wholesome energy
in a way that vastly improves the world around it.
But at the same time,
in a way that rapidly exhausts
the present physical form
the soul has inhabited.
For the greater good of the majority.
To the point where it can no longer continue in its current state of life.
Where it has already given so much more to the world around it
than that world ever actually deserved.
is compelled to move on much earlier than most would ever expect.
Move on to a different world,
and take up a newer form,
so that its energy can again be shared
to aid in the healing of
another troubled corner of existence.
And maybe this fleeting
but restorative advancement continues.
Again and again.
With the nomadic nature of such a complete soul
empowering an essential stability in life itself
that allows all that exists to, well, continue to
there comes a point
where the soul has fulfilled its angelic purpose,
and feels contented to move on to a place
where it’s candid essence
can truly prosper.
In all of its pureness.
And finally be left undisturbed,
on the highest of levels.
To shine on.
