The Ultimate Questions
In humanity's search for the Truth, there has been an endless stream of questions, varying in degrees of depth and complexity, that have been asked over the millennia we have existed as a species. But there are several questions that are of such significance that they trump all other questions we've ever asked. In the answering of these questions, the Truth itself begins to be revealed unto humankind, and from the realization of the answers to these questions, all else flows.
Philosophers, mystics, artists, scientists, scholars and people from all walks of life have posed these questions for countless generations. These are the ultimate questions for which we seek answers. These are the questions that are posed for consideration in the presentation What On Earth Is Happening. They are:
- Who are we?
- What is the purpose of human life?
- Why do we hold certain beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world in which we live?
- Why do we act the way we do toward ourselves and others?
- What is actually happening in our world?
- Is there significance and purpose to the events that are occurring?
- Can we improve ourselves and the world in which we live, and if so, how?
These are the loftiest of all questions ever posed by human beings. Certainly, any sentient beings embarking upon an examination into the nature of their own existence would have to ponder the answers to these inquiries at some point. These are the very questions for which all beings on a spiritual journey seek answers.
This brings us to the most important aspect regarding these questions that many people may initially find difficult to understand. These questions do indeed have knowable answers, and these answers can be known by us. The Truth never wavers or bends, and neither do the answers to these ultimate questions. It is only through our own fear and ignorance that we shield ourselves from the Light of Truth, and thus from the answers to our deepest and most meaningful questions about the nature of our own existence.
In actuality, we have always known the answers to these questions. It is through our evolutionary descent into darkness and matter that we experience a great forgetting. Now, that time of forgetting is coming to an end, we are remembering that these questions have been answered, and the answers are becoming known to us once again.
