I'm just very happy and pleased that it turned out in the final analysis that it was better to have something, than nothing at all.
Some say, and would have us believe, that life is an empty and meaningless absurdity, without any purpose except that which we give our own life,
while at the same time insisting that man is nothing but a meaning making machine, however complex, still nothing but a machine.
Me, I prefer to think that we are created beings, operating in meaning filled universe with a purpose, whereby the final frame of reference and
meaning for man, is that of family, and that furthermore, we are all children of a loving God, or in native terms, the "first father of all
creation" (ie: first/last cause), more than a thing, even a very personal who of sorts, and if that is an anthopomorphic projection, then how is it
that, even now I deeply feel myself to be fully loved and fully accepted? Is it delusional to suspect that there is a fundamental spiritual connecting
principal? Or are those who insist that it is meaningless, without purpose, completely indifferent, absent an all powerful, all loving God not the
ones in denial, out of fear, that out of the supreme sacrifice of one among us, the value assigned the individual is of infinite measure,
greater even than that of the whole of it all, since by comparison, it is worth nothing, if it is not for love, a love willing to go to any lengths,
to ensure that we are not left orphaned from the center and the source of it all even now, through this eternally unfolding present moment of now.
Me I believe in God, not because I am irrational, but because in the final analysis, faith in a supreme being is the only thing which makes any
rational sense. When you take away everything else, all one is left with is faith, love, hope, and if possible a good sense of humour.
And for those who think we are nothing in the grand scheme of things, you may consider the possibility that in the very long longgggg line of
evolutionary progress, mankind is the most recent arrival...!
"What is man that thou art mindful of him?"
Could it be that God the creator always begins with the end in mind, and that indeed "the first shall be last, and the last, first?"
And could it really be true, that we are emersed within an acausal, transluminally interconnected, non-local, holographic universe?
If so, then I do believe that this place here, is the place of ALL places where the rubber really hits the road and goes somewhere far and wide, and
simply because of the magnitude of the problems we face, the greatest place of honour, to be now. Or is that too solipsistic?
So when we take deep stock of our own lives, have we been involved in the creative process, or the other (destructive), and if we are a source of
destruction, even in little matters, how can we be trusted with the things to follow or the greater things that, even now we are participating in, in
whatever way however big or small?
When I see the Hubble Deep Field, it brings tears to my eyes, but more than ever it reminds me the extent to which I myself have failed God, and how
important it is to re-dedicate myself to a worthy cause for the greater glory of the one above it all, within whom everything moves and has it's
For, by God, in an acausal, transluminally interconnected and interdependant, non-local holographic universe of this magnitude - LOCAL MATTERS!
