I think this bears repeating. So I’m going to do that in hopes it encourages you like it does me.
There must be more to life than just breathing.
Drone behavior marked by the rising and setting of each day’s sun. There must be more.
There must be more to this thing which we all step into the same way ~ as babes unknowing ~ and that which we all step out of the same way ~ as humans yet unknowing what lies on the other side.
After all my searching and the severe hardships I have had, after all my wandering into the depths of the human experience, I cannot see anything that points to this life being all we have.
For if it were, what would be the reason to carry on?
Achievement for the greater good?
Why? What would any of those things give to a society ~ a whole earth full of people, generation after generation after generation ~ that could possibly make a difference?
IF that were true, that would make the only thing worth striving for ~ on this dirt mound we call home ~ a longer life. And to what end? More chance to suffer and live believing that we only belong to that very dirt mound?
No. The very existence of this dirt globe and everything in it cries out that it has a Creator.
And therein lies the journey to answer that age old question:
Why am I here?
The Eternal Perspective.
I fail. Daily probably. Disappointments. Let downs. Bad health. Financial problems. Surprises not wanted. The list can be long.
Not one of those changes the eternal perspective though.
I’m focusing every breathe on that. How about you?
