Is the world to much? Part I
ASK YOURSELF THE QUESTION
I think every good experience from life usually comes from an unanswered question we have deep inside. Something that has been in my mind for a bit, is the question asked in the title. Really though, is it too much? Most of us have asked that question at one point or another, and frankly I'm getting tired of asking it again and again because the world isn't gonna answer back, or justify itself. In fact it's gonna leave it up to us, life's greatest questions right? Who am I, where did I come from, where am I going? Maybe we know the answers to those, but maybe what we don't know is why in the world the path there is so unforgiving sometimes.
I like to think about evolution, sorry blindsided with science talk. No but really, whether you believe that an all knowing eternal God created us from the vast eternal knowledge had by this God, or whether it happened by way of time and happenstances, or both together. Either or both ways its evolution to me, and I would like to think that, whatever problems we face aren't new or out of nowhere, and that if it was simply a matter of survival of the fittest, they probably would have been irradiated in the evolution of things. Instead, no, we are subject to our own thoughts and minds, where there are a whole host of issues that can manifest themselves. We seem to do really well at beating the imminent physical threats, but on the internal spectrum, we seemly struggle a lot more. So maybe we just need to look at those things as the next steps of our evolution.
GREATEST STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES
I've said it before and I'll say it again, if our greatest weaknesses can become our greatest strengths, then surely our greatest strengths can become our greatest weakness. I'm not suggesting a cure, a way out, something that works for everyone, or simple solutions to our greatest problems. I'm suggesting that if we face them head on, then we just might over time find ourselves doing good at the hand of that weakness. For example, due to my anxiety issues, I've become very good at internalizing my feelings. Normally this would be a bad thing. However in certain circumstances, having a poker face in the most strenuous of situations can be a huge edge to you and has been for me over the years. This is not an easy task, its actually the most personally challenging one. It always is and always will be. However over time it is something that we can build into a strength. You just have to find what works for you.
The only thing "too much" about the world is that there is too dang much of it. We are in a world sized labyrinth of choices and decisions, and sometimes if we are in it alone, we could be lost forever. We can't do it alone everyone, even if that is our biggest struggle...
