Through conception we arrived on this planet, Mother Earth- we call it. We haven’t a clue from whence we came and where we’re going. But like that astronaut, who travels beyond our sky, we are explorers. We are the eyes of an intelligence that can never be duplicated. And with these eyes we should explore. We should seek a basic understanding of man and his habitation. We should ask questions like; what should we eat? What should we do? What should we strive for? How can we get the best living out of this thing called the body, that our spirit has been attached to? We should be relentless in our observations like the absorption of a sponge, taking in nothing but the best nourishment for our bodies and our minds.
At some time in the past every man was on a quest to find himself. But somewhere, somehow, we lost this natural propensity to be inquisitive. And in its place, we’ve become somewhat like- programmed mannequins, as we move about in this “Sea of the Dead”, as a buddy of mine likes to put it. We live mere copy-cat lives. “Let’s Google it” we say, and with that millions of possible answers are readily available in seconds. But they could be wrong answers! And unless we take a personal initiative to explore for ourselves, the information we gather is no more than B.S., and we all know what that means. But just like that astronaut who explores but returns home, we to must return to our true essence. Such a long journey, but it’s worth it.
