I've been questioning the meaning of life in the past couple of weeks (since I quit my job and haven't had much to do). I've been reading up on philosophy, religion, astronomy, astrology, numerology, etc. I've been trying to turn the dial on the camera I'm holding, trying to get my life in focus (hope you like the metaphor). Life is a riddle that hasn't been answered, and I must find the answer to it. I want to know why is love more respectable than hate, when hate is probably more powerful? Why is perfection so desirable, when nothing is perfect except for the continuance of imperfection (think about that)? Why do we as a people continue to contradict ourselves? If love and peace is what we are aiming for, why do we promote hate and war? I know a lot of people aren't going to agree with my religious beliefs, but to each his own. Why if God, Allah, Jehovah, Yahweh, etc, is everywhere, all of the time why do I need to go a certain place to pray or pray at a certain time or on a certain day? And if (I'm going to use God for all from here on) God is perfect, why is there so many different religions? God should have used his "all mighty" title to keep everyone under the same God (Exo. 20:5). Why is human life worth more in certain parts of the world than in others? Why are humans in control of this planet, when they are not that responsible? I have so many more questions that I am searching for answers to, but with every question answered comes more questions. Which leads me to a great quote, "Asking yourself these deeper questions opens up new ways of being in the world. It brings in a breath of fresh air. It makes life more joyful. The real trick of life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery." by physicist Fred Alan Wolf.
Peace, I mean WAR!
