This journey of life we all share never ceases to amaze me.
It’s a roller-coaster ride with ups and downs, highs and lows, sickness and health, happiness and sadness and so forth. I would challenge anyone who says it’s an easy ride. Easy? Never! It doesn’t mean it can’t be enjoyable though, right?
Don’t we all experience the small jolt of reality when we find ourselves in a quiet moment of peace? That feeling of, “Holy shit! What is all this? Why am I ignoring the most fundamental question – What on earth am I doing here???” And don’t we all have the same questions arising as a consequence – “What does this all mean?”, “Does my life even have a purpose?”, “Is there a divine plan to all of this madness?” and “What will happen to me when I die?”
Or is it just me?
I asked my father whether he had now ‘figured’ it all out at the ripe age of 80, and his immediate response was “Not at all.” That says it all to me really, every day is a new day for each of us, regardless of how old we are and what our experiences have been. We have to learn to navigate each new day with a fresh start. Essentially we’re all like little ducks floating calmly on the surface, with our legs paddling furiously under the water to stay afloat and keep moving forwards.
Maybe some of you have it figured out, and wonder why anyone would question their life. Obviously, this blog will not be for you! You can move on now to find something more to your tastes. And some of you may not believe in anything past this life we can see, touch, feel, taste and hear. This blog will also not be for you. I will ramble at length about things that you most likely find ridiculous. I’m finally owning up to something that is so deep within me. I’m finally coming out of the spiritual closet.
Join me if you like, on this endless journey of finding answers to the big questions and navigating a spirit-filled life!
