I is Singular For But One

You and I share this planet with 7.3 Billion other human beings.  And as much as we generally appear similar, we are equally unique, by DNA, by fingerprint, by voice, by life experience; and by our soul.

When we say “I am”, we are sharing our thoughts as of a particular moment.  The very nature of the phrase “I am” implies a sense of purpose, of being, and of value.  Yet, most of us struggle mightily when we dive deep into understanding or examining our personal journey in life.

And unsurprisingly, each of us has most likely encountered moments of extreme happiness, sadness, anger, pain, despair, love, abandonment and wonder.  As human beings, you see, we are physiologically comprised of matter; matter that somehow combined to provide us sensory organs.  We see, hear, touch, smell and taste.  And incredibly, we Think.

At an atomic level, we are marvelously complex organisms…  Yes, like viruses, only a bit more cultured. And our average lifespan varies between 75 and 100 years, impacted of course, by our environment, genetics, lifestyle and oh yes, our disposition.

One might surmise that we can largely influence our own lives as a result of our powerful senses, ability to communicate, anticipate, plan and learn.  Yet, so many of us flounder in life, make mistakes, fail to learn and come to believe we have little or no value to mankind.

The truth of the matter, however, is that the chances of merely existing in this world, absent of an important purpose, are near 100% likelihood.  That is, of course, unless we have discovered not only the self, but also the true source of our being, our essence and our destiny.

There is only One true source that can say “I am” with 100% certainty, and that my friends, is God.  For God, is the Supreme Being, the one who created all things, is omniscient, breathes life into each of us, and without question, loves us as a parent loves each of their children.

“There is a vast portion of this world and universe that remains unknown, not only as a result of our cognitive limitations as human beings, but also, deliberately, by design.  The foundation of faith is believing without seeing; translated, without knowing.  We have been provided with just enough knowledge about our life, planet, environment and self to be able to recognize that there is so much more to life, yet to be known, understood, appreciated and revered.”

The stark reality of a higher power is deafening, yet many of us refuse to acknowledge it’s existence, or more aptly phrased, His existence.  We spend precious little time in our conscious lives contemplating, acknowledging, developing and leveraging this power, known as God.

Like every penny minted, however, I firmly believe, “In God We Trust”.  Be well.

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
