People who are called to think about their existence want to be authentic. It is a pressing thirst and hunger.
There’s a deep instinct to be whatever it is we’re meant to be despite the clutter of expectations coming at us from all levels.
Those not called to think about such things remain what the wise ones to this day call “sleepwalkers”. They await their turn.
So those who for some reason not yet known to mankind are not sleepwalkers, the perennial question is,
“Are our lives best left to Reality? Is it the daily promptings in our lives of Reality that are meant to keep us focused on authenticity by ridding us of our human irrelevancies and distractions?”
Is it the experience of Reality that gives us the discernment to avoid the repetitive pains of human history – so that we can develop individually in peace and contentment – eventually shucking off the human experience to become what we really are?
Is the locus of every person’s true identity, their true existence, not after all in sleep walking through life automatically, indiscriminately adopting the world’s values by default?
Is there anything of lasting value to be found in studying humanity after all?
Even scientists are now suggesting science is not able to answer the perennial questions of existence. Professor Michio Kaku suggests humanity is only at a level of “Type ‘O’ civilisation”. (See hundreds of “Closer to Truth” probing video interviews with leading scholars, academics, scientists, philosophers and psychologists).
So, is humanity merely a carrier? Are humans just transients, passing through, evolving? Is this what mystics experience? Is Spirit winning over Matter?
Is only Reality forever, always true, totally dependent, steadfast? Is anything else as awake, as authentic? Is Reality what it’s all about?
