Sand falling through an hourglass is the passing of that which we deem will inevitably expire. It is the symbol for the limited passing of time, and once the last grain has fallen, that thing must stop. However, we have the option to flip the hourglass allowing the opposite, infinity, to ensue. Though all things have a natural cycle–stasis or static, dark or light,full or empty–we can choose to reinvest time in the things that will bring infinite happiness for all. Compassion is one of those things.
Compassion is the key to receiving all one could possibly want through the giving of all one possibly can. Each miniscule grain of compassion passed through the sands of time, is without a doubt, time well spent in the short while we all have to give one another.
Let us flip the glass for the future.
