Why are we here?

Sistren and Brethren,
I wanted to actually share what these verses say. We shared the verses themselves.
It is a tad bit upsetting that most with access to these verses have access to a bible on the Web, or even in person.

How then, do we ‘live’? If I were to ‘quiz’ you on the verses, would you truly be able to answer? Honestly!

I am half moved to ask which verse most touched your spirit. Yet, I am led to know that is an ‘exercise in futility!’

I will ask again: “When first posted, who actually took the time to read?”

A great majority have smartphones. Clue: The Word on your smartphone is not a bad idea. Where do you get your fill? Music, Theater, Movies, Reading, Talking, Working? I could go on and on…
“Where” are you going? What is your destination?”

I recently shared with someone “So Heaven is real?” Was asked in response. What was experienced ‘may’ have been a result of “narcotics” delivered post traumatic brain injuries. However, even IF it was all secondary to what was infused in ‘that state’; there are questions that arise! Once again I will ask “Where are you headed?”

Years ago when I first started writing after my experience. I did because it was what I ‘dreamt’ I said I would do in my dream!

Yes! Spending time in The Word has its effects, I admit. But, again I ask – “Where are you headed?”

Over time, I have heard various answers/responses to that question from: “We line up to return again.”, “Everyone goes to Heaven.”, again as shared above: “So Heaven is real?”
It goes on and on….m

Once again I ask, what occurs AFTER death? Is it not better that you place your chips in the “best bet” pot?

I am moved to say “being ‘religious’ is not a true answer!” Religion? What is that? A ‘set of expectations.’ Written by institutions. Religious, no doubt. Again, there is that word. There is NOTHING wrong at all with being ‘religious’, but just where does it start?

There are so many with pain (emotional AND/OR physical), loss, a desire to be alone… hold on! Who are the ‘happiest’ people we see? Those with true family and friends. What ‘changes’ individuals? To be in a ‘relationship’, to fall in ‘love.’ At these times, ALL seems attainable through ‘love’…. But; What IS love?

An emotion? Scientifically ‘measurable’? We are struck by the actual at times ‘brevity’ of our feelings. BUT, when we were in ‘love’, ALL seemed possible. There is so much to share on this, and we shall.

I will at this point note that Something/Somewhere is The Source of Love.
Mind you It is written and meant different than the ‘concept’ of ‘love’. But, if you can feel that way, even when things ‘go wrong’ love/Love is an amazing thing!

To curtail this sharing about ‘love/Love.’ Do you have access to a ‘historical’ source of comfort, direction and meaning? For some reason (Whatever that Is/Was back then, individuals were stimulated to ‘share’ their experiences.

What do we gain from history classes? The way things were? It goes a far way to guide/lead the way things will be. World wars, the Titanic, past events? The record is indescribable useful! It points where/how/why/why not…to do things.
Christianity

Islam

Buddhism

Hinduism

Sikhism

Jainism

Baha’i

Druze

Confucianism

Taoism

Shinto

Judaism

Zoroastrianism

To name but a few. There is an underlying current in all. Meaning/Direction/Fulfillment in insatiable list.

In our way, we put forward our beliefs, practices led by our inner desire for ‘meaning! ‘

Without hesitating, these are the ones I shared previously in the mostly unread list of verses:

“Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city.”
Proverbs 16:33

“Fools give full vent to their rage,
but the wise bring calm in the end.”

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouth, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
Ephesians 4:29

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
