A few thoughts you might like to ponder about life, the universe, and the journey we‘re on. If you’re game.
Most of us are aware of the journey that starts with birth and ends with death. If you identify yourself with your body, death is the end of the road. No surprises there.
This is what we could refer to as the surface journey. The one you experience if you don’t ask questions like:
Who am I?
What’s my purpose?
Why was I born?
What’s the meaning of life?
Is there life after death?
What if your journey doesn’t end when your body does? Maybe you believe you and your body are the same thing and that you end when the body does. What if that’s not true?
What if your journey started with the Big Bang? You know, that cosmic thing the astronomers and physicists think birthed the universe. Puts age into a different frame of reference, doesn’t it? Have you ever wondered where you were before you were born, this time?
How we see the journey comes down to what we choose to believe, and we can believe whatever we want to believe. Sure, there are people out there that want to tell us what to believe. That’s their problem. Let them worry about it.
What we believe determines how we see things. Changing our beliefs can change the way we see things. You don’t have to take my word for it, just ask a recent convert to any cause.
I invite you to re-consider the journey you think you’re on. What might it mean if there is more to it than you first thought?
