The Meaning of Everything
What is life about? Quintessentially the question every human being, religion and science has been trying to answer since the dawn of time. Some have defined it as merely time moving in circular motions, creating parallel universes and unchangeable destiny. Some see it more in the supernatural realm and attempt to fuse the supernatural with the physical. Will we, however, ever find the true meaning of life through our futile attempts? Or are we destined, as a race, to forever bicker and ponder over this unfathomable question?
There are answers, most definitely; as there are to most things in life. As in morality, there is always black and white but hardly grey; so too, are there answers to life, not mere shadows in the wind. But where are those answers? The search for truth has all too often led us into even more confusion and obtusion. The answers we seek are often so simple, we daren't believe it. But they are there. Simple truths for daily living so finely woven and threaded into a piece of literature which encompasses the generations and transforms lives.
The truths expounded are meted out with startling clarity, something clearly missing from the curse of relativism we all face in today's world. And yet, we all say we need more meaning. We say that the Word is but a facade of our inner hallucinations. Richard Dawkins claims that religion is senseless, irrational and dangerous. But I would say that atheism is empty, illogical and oh, so soul-less.
Meaning is always there, it's just a matter of opening your mind to it. To the Creator God.
