Considering all perspectives
On a TV documentary, a man during his vacation went for a five day hike and
camping adventure to seek solitude. It was a quest of sorts for answers. He
became lost and injured and things became terribly wrong. He said he sometimes
felt, even when lost, that nature was transcendental. At other times he felt
and saw the cruelty of nature, and its seeming arbitrariness. What’s
interesting is that he accepted this contradiction along with the concept of
there existing a maker.
To some extent this is what I’m doing, considering all perspectives within
the context of there is an above. When one knows there is a maker, one is safe
to explore and wonder and consider all varieties of ideas and thinking. There
is some truth and some falseness to them all. You are not as vulnerable as
before when you were looking without knowledge of an above. Each facet of
existence can now be viewed and appreciated for its uniqueness, pleasant or
unpleasant, as it exists in time.
