There's this strange sensation that goes through most of us, and it happens every couple days or so. For some of us it happens more often than for others, but the sensation remains the same, the same root, just in varying degrees. It's the sensation of, "Well ... I don't really know much of anything about my existence, do I? I'm a human on this anthill of evolution, and we're all just pretending to know what we're doing."
The funny part is there is a huge number of people who've convinced themselves they do know what they're doing, that not only do they have their own lives figures out but that they have the afterlives lined up like ducks in a row. And maybe all their spiritual assumptions are right, maybe their deities are the ones that exist and yours are the ones that don't. Who knows. I just shrug my shoulders at that one.
But I want to pose my own question. Why waste time with this dogma just because you can't answer a few questions about life?
There's no real definite answer for our purpose here. People will argue this and that, but really, your purpose is what you make of it.
There's no real definite answer to how we got here. People will argue this and that, but really, we're some primordial goo that somehow evolved. Through chance or not, that's also your opinion.
There's no real definite answer to deities, spirit work, the elements, your 'path', and all these ridiculous titles we lend to one another so we can feel safe. Let go of your titles if you want to be free. You're a soul, how amazing is that? Why, then do you desire these answers like who/what made you, where you came from and where you're going? It's just intellectual rabble, and although I admit it's fun to dabble in assumptions, there's a certain extent, and beyond that extent is just a chaotic dellusion of assuming on assumptions.
What I've discovered most recently is that people will give answers to questions that scare them on a deep, subconsicous or even conscious level.
Questions like: "Who made all this? Why are we here?"
The answer most of us were taught? "God/gods."
Faith is a wonderful thing, people braver than I can hold onto faith, but I can't.
Here's an answer. You're a soul, you're constantly evolving, learning, and growing. What else do you need?
I urge you to explore what excites you, what really resonates with you. Opening your third eye, clearing out the dust, and stopping on the trail of dogma to go towards a place of enlightenment and understanding that is your own and solely your own.
Understand this: You know just as much about life as anyone else, in the sense that we all have a collective, intrinsic wisdom in us waiting to be tapped, and you don't need a title, or any sort of measure of merit to prove it.
