“Without mysteries, life would be very dull indeed. What would be left to strive for if everything were known?”
― Charles de Lint
It’s funny you know. So many people out there claiming to have the answers. Even if they don’t have the hubris (or the stupidity) to claim to know it all, they know the one true path to find out. They know what is to come and that it is coming soon. Just follow their methods and you can know too. Yet all or most of these ways are different. Either a little different or in some cases almost polar opposites. You pay your money and you take your choices.
Maybe tho, the right path for us to follow is whatever path we’re on. Studying what calls us and learning and living what and how we can. Maybe its ok not to know but to appreciate the mystery of life. Yes the world is changing and we need to change but isn’t change the constant? Perhaps there will be some cataclysm that is to come and we need to be ready or perish. If perishing is possible. Perhaps we are on the brink of the most positive transformation that the human race has yet to see. All of these possibilities and more are out there. Each of us will know as we get there and for me that is ok. Part of what has always kept me going is curiosity as to what can happen next. May we all grow in wonder and embrace the mystery.
