  1. A form made from dust like us is enough to cause wreckage to mother earth, cannot imagine what if we are made of stronger organism. Was it wrong to have given spirit and life to dust or should we have just remained as dust.

  2. The great paradox of dust — seemingly insignificant, but when spirit and life are breathed into it, is born a living soul into this world, made in the image of her/his Creator. From insignificance, this dust assumes infinite worth, endowed with beauty and talents and a purpose. While alive, these endowments are to shine their brightest. For me, a living soul has to rise from the ashes while alive, but in humility, has to be constantly aware from whence one came from, and to where one is to return.

  3. All dust is originally stardust. People might feel better with “ashes to ashes, stardust to stardust”. A bit more stardust falls every day. That’ll cheer them up.

    1. Behind the literal extract of your words is a deeper understanding of people and their motivation > form more than substance. Thank you for this contribution, Eric

    1. Root – That is a subliminal thought.

      Where it all springs from, from where it draws sustenance, yet it stays hidden, trodden while the branches shoot for glory towards the heavens – see what you did Soma dear > you got my thoughts rolling out…and I am grateful for it πŸ™‚

    1. I was engrossed in something else when I saw your comment come in.

      Wow! Ho! Ho! Ho! – you really socked it to me with this one. What you say is so obviously true – so obvious and would you believe I missed this angle – it blew my mind away.

      The apple dropped – when you shook the tree!
