Life’s not easy, and if you lived any amount of time on this earth, you should now that by know. But I think sometimes we get lulled into a false sense of security; I know I do. The cold hard truth is nothing in this life is guaranteed, it all can - and will at some point - disappear. It’s the state of our humanity. But we often times refuse to acknowledge our own mortality, much less the precarious nature of our minuscule time here on earth. Why is that? Why do we go thru our lives as if nothing will change? Why do we put our faith and our self worth in temporary things? Our jobs, money, prestige and possessions are nothing more than dust, but we refuse to acknowledge this. Why? I’m not asking these questions for dramatic effect, I really want to know. It seems obvious to me that our lot in life - at least on this plain - is temporary, and we should put our faith in something eternal…..but not religion or dogma! Those things - although we too often don’t admit it - are shallow and temporary as well. Beside, I don‘t think God is religious anyway. But the question still remains. Why?
