Make Room in Your Heart

Rambling thoughts from many years past:

There are far, far too many children with cancer and other serious diseases in our world. Far too many young adults dying with “old people” diseases:

“There are far, far too many chemicals, poisons, drugs, in our water and food”

There is far, far too much hatred one for the other in our world. Far too much war and atrocities being committed by humans against other humans:

“Hate is not a hereditary quality, but a learned behavior”

There is far, far too much torture of our planet going on. Forests are disappearing, oceans are polluted, the air is filled with noxious smoke, the earth itself is being drilled into incessantly, pumped full of hot water and steam in order to choke out a gallon of black goo…:

“When the Earth dies, all humans will also die. As far as I know there are no outposts on Mars”

There are far, far too few children learning to put a pencil to a piece of paper and write:

“When the plug is pulled, how will knowledge be communicated?”

I used to be able to pull my car in my Grandfather’s yard and do just about anything to it which needed doing to make it run. I changed points and plugs, solenoid switches and alternators, starters, rings and pistons. Now when I open the hood of my car all I see are computer plug ins. The one thing I recognize is the battery.

I used to check books out of the library to read, or go to one of the numerous used book stores to buy a book to read, or to trade for one. Now, I buy a “book” online and they send a few bytes of information on the internet and I read it on an electronic pad. I still own lots and lots of physical books though…including a lot of instruction manuals and textbooks.

There are far, far too many people who think their God lives inside a big brick building:

“If you make room in your heart, God will be there. If God is in your heart, you have made room” You will know, there won’t be any doubt.


Finding the Truth

How can we know truth? The truth is, that there IS no absolute truth. There are laws. There are rules.

There are laws of nature…but they are not truth.

There are laws of physics. But those are not absolute truths.

There are rules of religion, but they are not truths.

There are laws of governments, but those certainly are not truths.

How do we arrive at the truth? If the truth lies within the human mind, we will never arrive at the truth, because the human mind is not capable. We devised the rules, and they are ever changing. No two human beings live by the exact same truths. We may believe some things in common, but not all things.

Siblings, Sons and daughters, Mothers and Fathers, Husbands and wives, partners, lovers, friends. None know truth exactly the same.

Just remember this the next time you wonder why someone does not think the same way you do, or when you cannot change someone’s mind.

We all live within our own separate Universe, and even a perfect circle looks imperfect to some.
