Dust In The Wind

Music HighwayIn my last post, I pondered over the idea that  everything around us and all of the universe may have came forth from God himself. I contemplated that our composition – the elements of matter – is from the essence of what that God is.

Do I really know this for sure?  No.  So I also considered  that God may have indeed created everything from scratch, from nothing. But “nothing” has nothing in it. Therefore, how He created the universe and all that is in it is way too much for me to comprehend.

In any event, the video song below is about how insignificant we are compared to God and His majesty. It is a reminder that we are here on this earth for a short time and that we will return back to the elements of the earth after we die.

I close my eyes
Only for a moment and the moment’s gone
All my dreams
Pass before my eyes with curiosity

kansas-dust-in-the-wind-kirshnerDust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind

Same old song
Just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do
Crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

(Aa aa aa)
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
Oh, ho, ho

– violins with guitars –

Now don’t hang on
Nothin’ lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away
And all your money won’t another minute buy

Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
(All we are is dust in the wind)

Dust in the wind
(Everything is dust in the wind)
Everything is dust in the wind
(In the wind)
