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 minuscule 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 complicated each person’s lives were on board and if they considered how precious and unique their lives are. There is so much being done in society 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. When you think you have it figured out, something comes along for which you did not prepare. Life experiences, when exposed in the light of truth, are a great teacher. Because of this, we should go through our life without apprehension and fear. The challenge of living is for those who seek purpose and participate in the vitality of living, and they find it is profound to be alive. Your presence is not to be endured with dread and fear. Truth is the key that reveals the way. The fear of a dark room is gone when there is light. The reality of the illumination shows what is hidden by the darkness. Likewise, there are undeniable, universal truths about the walk in life that exposes the dark side in the struggle of living. Knowledge of the truth gives us the freedom to make life choices that benefit us and those around us.
In many ways, we are the center of the universe on earth. Many things in our world that have happened in the past and even the present events will affect the universe as we know it. Every day we are part of this; no man or woman is an island standing alone. Since the beginning of my human inquiry, I have asked three central questions; 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 role in justifying our existence. Some part of 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 life questions. Therefore, we must become a child again and listen with our heart and an open mind. Let him who has an ear HEAR.
