Inspiring Soundtrack: Audiomachine -Life Chronicles – Tree of Life


She felt the power of the gift as the ongoing conflict raged within. It was both wondrous and terrifying at the same time, as it boosted her spirit and sapped every ounce of strength from her body.

“Who are you?” Zoe enquired of this sage, whose countenance told a tale of ageless wisdom.

“I am nobody and I am everybody. I am you and you are me. We have met before, at some place, at some point in time, and yet this is our first conscious encounter.”

“I don’t understand.”

“All life vibrates in a never-ending dance within every atom of our being, which leads to our continuously changing nature.”

She struggled to comprehend, to hold on, yet knew that she had to relinquish the familiar and go where this wondrous change would lead her.

Adam smiled knowingly. “You cannot escape that which has been preordained. From the moment of your birth, through every step of your life’s journey, everything has been leading up to this moment.”

  1. Hi Michelle,

    A most lucid and engrossing excerpt, my friend. You have most articulately, brought the story along. And the moment. Yes the moment. You should be very proud of your contribution.

    In kindness and continued fulfilling writing your way,



  2. “All life vibrates in a never-ending dance within every atom of our being, which leads to our continuously changing nature.”

    This statement says it all – so well done! Excellent!
