i think this a great possible answer to the OP's question, and probably one of many right ones.
my sisters and i are drawn, OVERWHELMINGLY, to ask and search. we have come up w/ so many theories of why we can't be satisfied with what we are told
like most around us are.
we have speculated more "rational" theories such as the effects of those we were raised around set us up for this constant questioning of what we
are told, etc etc.
i have one kind of off the wall theory though and this is just a theory. lets say that the story of adam and eve is true.... or a reference to the
truth, at the very least.
cain and seth were the two primary offspring of the couple and according to the story. one line represented "darkness" (of course, i am aware that
others look at it differently..... keep in mind, i am just thinking and don't ever take my thoughts as absolute) and the other, seth's, represented
the line that had "God's" light.
so, could that have carried down through generations? the one's that feel that pull to question and seek are the one's who were born w/ something
different whether it is physical or of the "mind/soul"? i wonder if some of us were born w/ some kind of "light" and those that were not are the
ones that would rather accept and live their lives in a more superficial existence.
i know that i have "smart" friends who just seem clueless when it comes to what is REALLY going on around them. they can explain almost anything
that has to do w/ math, science, social structures, politics blah blah blah, yet they can't see that president bush is in complete violation of
everything the office of president was meant to stand for. to me it is clear and yet i am not "smart" about politics and such things.
whatever seperates us from them is real though. even before i "woke" up to what was going on around me, i knew something was..... i sensed it. most
ppl that "wake" up do have that sense that something is wrong before they finally open their eyes. i rarely hear of someone who is desperately
searching that didn't possess that sense to do so before hand.
sheesh (i am NOT great at expressing my thoughts, so i hope this makes sense to at least someone lol)
