Maya: But you already know the answer to that, I think.
Amari: Starred. A very pleasant, eloquent well-articulated moral quandary. "If God doesn't answer, then I've done something wrong. Ok. Ok. I
must try to be a better person (a perfectly healthy self-produced guilt really)." Thus, the day of good deeds it produced. And a very realistic,
relate-able moral. Cudos.
"We are living in a constant state of 'is', and our only purpose is to 'be'." - Airl
I tend to have to believe this, as it proves to me that no matter the messenger, the truth's most basic fundamental messages always seem the most
motivational driving force in my life experience. At least until some better explanation comes along, I have no problem believing this most basic and
obviously truthful in-your-face reality. Having my purpose defined, and the issue closed (even with so many other questions still unanswered) seems to
have prompted me to do things in my life in an effort to better my personal 'be'-ing...and the 'be'-ings of everyone around me.
True, it can seem very cold and heartless, but I have found that starting with this basic foundational truth has led me to closure of some kind on
this question, and that this closure might be the catalyst I needed personally to drive me into living a better life.
I can only hope that it gives a couple of you the same closure it has given me, as answering this one profound age-old question has proven to steer me
into something of a clearing...truly seems to have lifted a huge weight that was once bearing down on me.
All the best.
I'll still stick with "How are you?"...if we're guaranteed an answer that is.
