Nature Of The Beast
Albert Einstein once said, ~The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.~ As said before, it is important to never stop asking questions because quite frankly the answers one seeks out of vapid curiosity can most definitely broaden each of us spiritually, emotionally, and not to mention mentally. The knowledge we individually seek and may gain in order to answer life's not only interesting and thought provoking, but difficult questions as well is considered a neverending journey. For it's a journey within the one's own mind in which a person receives a possibly better understanding of what oftentimes does not make any kind of sense whatsoever, which can be truly a struggle to comprehend. What is the meaning of life? Essentially, it's a question that has existed since the dawn of time to the point where so many people including myself have thought about to answer. Thinking about it, the question itself remains the same but the answers are completely different for a number of individuals who sat and thought about it to where they inevitably delved deep into their brain may even from dusk till dawn. The question of why and for what purpose are we put on this Earth is something we ask ourselves on a seemingly daily basis. Fortunately, for simple people they know their calling while other are still in search of the answer. True, it can certainly be a frustrating situation indeed but if you don't stop continually asking them then the spark of curiosity will surely never burn out. When will I find love/true love? Without a doubt, true happiness is an absolute big question mark for those living the single life. We all know it can be attainable evident by the happy couples around us. You see, it's when you question the arrival of your best friend for life more question lie within causing the curiosity within your heart to be peaked. Of course, one can become deeply analytically minded so much so a self evaluation is done whereby leading to the breakdown of what is personally working and not working for him/her in the dating scene. Granted, it can be a positive or negative depending on the type of person one is in either knowing they're accepting the honest truth instead of accepting the lie. What it primarily comes down to is realizing the questions being sought after are easy and it only becomes complicated by the answers one gives. Why does God let bad things happen? Ecclesiastes 7:25 says. ~I applied mine heart to know and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and the reason of things, and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness: Unfortunately, it's hard to fully make sense of horrific tragedies that have occurred none more recently than the events of December 14, 2012 at around 9:30 a.m. in Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. The simple question is why? Endless questions of why and wherein turning to the morbid curiosity of what would make any person take the life of 20 innocent children who had their whole lives ahead of them. Sadly, there are sometimes no rhyme or reason but we take comfort in knowing the 27 victims are in the comforting arms of our Lord Jesus Christ in heaven. In retrospect, there will always be something that will leave each and every one of us intrigued. In that instance, our immense curiosity will take over causing us to question the who, what, when, where, why, and how of it all. In a way, it's like following the white rabbit of Wonderland down the proverbial rabbit hole. If you think about it, once you make the conscious decision to ask the question then you must follow it down further within the recesses of your mind. Hey, that's who we are and always will be. To seek out the unanswered questions. In the end, each one of us may never know what we may come up with once one emerges from the other side; but as long there are questions the determination to gain those answers will be there because we're really never satisfied and that my friend is the nature of the beast.
