To determine our character, our worth … as we near the end, we’re challenged at every turn – asked questions … Got sand? Got knowledge, intellect?
I ask: Got a compass? No; what is it then, which gives you direction?
Though it’s a starting point, for most, … seeking pleasure is a universal beginning, but it doesn’t last; it isn’t enough . . . We flounder as pleasure and possessions begin to become less meaningful … We need something of substance to give meaning.
Geographically, that the world is round, makes it so we can see ahead, only for a relatively short distance. Was that to be a ‘lesson’?
Looking ahead is difficult for most; my fixed point … allows me to ‘pen’ a glimpse into our future, which I’d long desired. Reject this reasoning if you like, but it’s good and true.
Our lives are short. Inspiration of love, music, writings, art, buoy us but we’d be wise to spend our time passing through, finding purpose; it best not all come to naught.
Proverbs describe ‘wisdom as a lady.’ It portrays her as a mother-like teacher, showing us how … to navigate life.
