I am an extremely curious person. Constantly asking questions and seeking the answers.
I can’t tell you how many times I have gone searching for the answer to something and find myself 7 layers into multiple subjects having the initial answer I wanted, but coming up with even more questions.
My life is centered around finding out what is on the other side of the ” = ” sign and how did it get there.
Because of this, I know things like:
- elephants can’t jump
- men get hiccups more than women
- 38% of America is wilderness, while only 28% of Africa is wilderness
- There is an average of 61,000 people airborne over America at any given hour
- Honey never spoils
- …and so much more
So many answers are out there and with today’s technology we can have just about any question answered almost immediately. We have become impatient for answers.
This is especially clear when we start asking the difficult questions:
- Why must we suffer?
- Why was there no healing?
- When will the hurt stop?
- Why am I alone?
- Why me?
- Why can I not understand?
Although you may find some generic answers floating around, they will generally leave you unsatisfied, still questioning and never finding what is on the other side of the ” = ”
So what are the answers to those hard questions? Anything?
What if I told you there are no definitive answers here to be found?
I believe that the answers are not meant to be given. They are beyond our comprehension of understanding, because it’s how we live with the questions inside of us, rather than our ability to live with the answer given.
Those hard questions is what it takes for us to start being uncomfortable and reach down and grab a hold of “Belief.”
For me, “Belief” translates that one day I will understand. One day I will look back at those hard questions and I will see that they were necessary. Necessary for me to grow, learn, share and become exactly who I was intended to be. I believe that when I do look back, I will see that the ” = ” is exactly equal to the questions. Nothing more and nothing less.
…and frankly…some questions are just not meant to be answered here on Earth.
