In the Journey of Life there may come a point where you question why? Why do we do certain things when one day this Journey of Life will simply come to an end?
For me the Journey of Life began by questioning the same small thing repetitively. This question used to really bug me from a very young age from which stemmed endless questions and the search for answers. One day this search eventually led me to the dreaded question of Why Do We Exist? This really used to make me feel uneasy, nauseous at times and on most nights left me with a sensation of being sucked into a dark hole. From then on I did everything I could to shun the plethora of questions that would whirl around in my head when left unoccupied. Then later on in my life, the same pestering question revisited, but this time, I could not let it go. I had to face it head on.
The first place I turned to was to religion. However, personally I did not find the answers I was looking for in any such teachings. It was not until I turned inwards did I begin to unravel some peace and balance to these unruly thoughts. I realised that we are all on a journey, with very similar goals in mind. All of us are looking for some sort of freedom, ultimate happiness, wealth, divinity etc. but our routes will all differ. It was understanding this concept which first gave me a sense of peace. We can conceptualize this as a point of bright light emitting abundant halos. The centre of the light is the focus we all aim to reach, and the halos represent us. The different rings represent different beliefs, religions, phases etc. in life all pointing towards the centre that binds us all as one.
We are all at different stages in this Journey of Life, each and every path taken neither right nor wrong. By understanding this and discovering what brings you closer to your centre, it may be possible to answer such burning questions for yourselves and for us all to live side by side in both peace and harmony. We must live in total equilibrium by trying to allow ourselves and those around us the chance to both Live and Let Live.
