Everything reverts to numbers…..shapes, sizes, circles and squares…hey, you even have to have the right numbers to win the lottery! Well, also included in this, I’m afraid, is that as the population of the planet increases, so do the value of its numbers decrease. Is the value of family, work, and play worth more today than say ten years ago? Perhaps not.
We all have alot to pack into twenty-four fours a day….some are more successful then others, but boy, I don’t know about you, but for me at the end of each day I still wish I had another two or three hours of extra time. After awhile its easy to feel like a machine punching a time clock, asking yourself, “What’s it all about?” The search for meaning in life, for many, comes up empty, until one day a person decides that it’s time to embark upon a journey to find what this place called earth is all about….and why we are here. As a collective human family, the answers can come easily…but the individual stories….ah…..therein lies the search that many at some point in their lives find themselves on. That’s when we realize we are more than just a number……a sea of faces, where each one has its own story that cries to be heard.
I found, for myself, that I could only go so far until I had to seek out the meaning for my life. Finding inner value became a necessity. I refused to believe that my happiness could only be based upon material things, which I found very temporary, until one day I sat down in a chair, looked up, and said “Please God, help me find the answers.” Not until that moment did I feel myself connected with my spiritual essence. I’ve always looked upon myself as a realist….not somebody who just believes for the sake of believing. I search for evidence. Today as I look around this world I have to believe that there is a reason for everything. I wasn’t born to go to school, find a job, make money, retire, and drop dead. Somewhere in-between all of this is Life. We all have a Life…..a story to pass along.
This globe that we live on spirals through space in a synchronized order with our solar system….mathematics in play, numbers all working together to maintain some kind of order….as one thing swings out, eventually it swings back….the pendulum of Time and Space. Each second has its value, and so does each Life.
Numbers have meaning,
