When we think about life, everyone thinks to himself or herself: “is this it?” Can I really make it here? Where have I arrived? Is this the place for me? Why did I get dropped off here? Will anyone ever understand me? Can I find my purpose? Everyone is filled with self-doubt time and again. But these doubts are really nothing more than a separation from what we hoped would be our fate. We make bogeymen out of breezes and tie ourselves to dandelions tails as they flitter through the sky.
Nothing is Absolute
Pinning our hopes on whims. Such is human behavior. Hope is hope until it’s metered with spiritual discipline. Then it becomes faith. When we know ourselves, we know this world. When we understand this world, what can we not know? This world reflects all things, heaven and below. Could we not think that there was a chance for the purpose here? Could we not feel that purpose was our purpose? Could we think that heaven dropped us off on a bad block and said good luck? I think not. We are sitting by ourselves, yes, but nothing is absolute.
Just because we can’t see the love from the universe, doesn’t mean it’s not there. Do we have to work it out in our heads first that love is everywhere? If it weren’t the tree would say to hell with it. The dogs would stop letting you pet them and the birds wouldn’t chirp. The only reason that nature participates is that it feels. If it didn’t feel, why wouldn’t the whole thing just cease? We have to build ourselves up to the point where we know our loneliness is just a mad illusion of an ego that wants adoration, not actual love.
Love is in the air, in the earth, and in our hearts. Adoration is an addiction of the ego, one that doesn’t help us to become anything other than attention seekers. Seek not and you will find.
