I was lying down under the late night sky not too long ago when I realized if science is correct the light from the stars I saw traveled many years to get to me. It made me feel minute in the immense size of the universe. As I was trying to comprehend this I saw the lights from a flying jetliner overhead, and I wondered how complex the lives of each individual was on board and if they considered how precious and special their lives really are. There is so much being done today to cheapen the human life experience. The result is men and women do not live life to the fullest.
Life is an adventure and a challenge, just when you have it figured out something comes along you did not prepare for. Life in the light of truth is a great teacher. Because of this we should go through life without apprehension and fear. The challenge of living is for those who are alive and participate in the vitality of living and it is exhilarating to be alive. Life is not meant to be lived with dread and fear. Truth is the key that reveals the way. The fear of a dark room is gone when there is light, and the truth hidden by the darkness is revealed. Likewise there are undeniable, universal truths about life that exposes the dark side in the struggle of living. Knowledge of the truth gives us freedom to make choices in life that benefits us and those around us.
In many ways we are the center of the universe on earth. So many things in our world that have happened in the past and even the events of the present will affect the universe, as we know it. We are all a collective part of this; no man or woman is an island standing alone. Three main questions people have asked since the beginning of human inquiry; who am I? What am I doing here? And how do I live with these people around me? The answers to these questions play a roll in justifying our existence. Something in all men and women reaches out to be fulfilled and find meaning in life.
There is an invisible hand in our lives, one of optimism and hope. This force seeks the best for us. If we could hear and understand this entity like tuning in a radio channel we would know there are ways to answer the questions of life. We must become a child again and listen with our heart and open mind. Let him who has an ear HEAR.
