Up Where We Belong

All of us have this insatiable desire to belong, to share, to possess the knowledge of our future; to be able to influence our future.  Indeed, to become our future.  And what hangs in the balance, what buoys our spirit, humbles our minds, and drives our determination; is faith.

Faith, in knowing there is much more to life than meets the eye; faith, in our salvation; faith, in life after death; faith, in God, The Son, and the Holy Spirit.  The kind of faith that people have been persecuted for having since the beginning of time, faith for which people have died, faith that people protect with their lives.

To be sure, the fundamental construct of faith is founded in the future, in knowing the past, in trusting God, in loving life.  And the reality of our collective existence is distilled into a single universal truth; to Believe is to See.

As much as our faith is centered around our singular existence, relationship and respective accountability with our Creator, it likewise is circular in nature, in that it involves the impact our lives have on others and others impact on us.  The whole of our being can best be described as an interconnected, interdependent conscious organism (spirit), et. al.

We spend our entire lives searching for those worldly areas where we belong, yet spend precious little time searching (and preparing) for the eternal life where we will belong into the infinity of time.  We must consequently examine our lives and ask ourselves; What are our priorities in contrast to what should be our priorities?

“At the opposite end of the spectrum is the beginning of new life, of being born, of witnessing the miracle itself, of acknowledging and accepting the awesome responsibility and privilege of becoming a parent.  And most importantly, nurturing, assisting, influencing, valuing and respecting that precious and amazing life; for it is your legacy as a child of God, your responsibility as a Christian, and your opportunity to enhance, enlighten and empower another ‘soul’ to serve and praise the Creator.”

– (Excerpt from My Amazing Life Is Not In Vein, Michael Cerkas)

Robert Eddison

To belong to anything involves prescribed values, thinking, behavior, priorities, commitment, and restraint.  Yet the key to these aspects is rooted in free will, not in indentured servitude.  Each of us chooses where we belong, in part, by our desires, and in LARGE part, by our actions.

In choosing where we belong, remember that Love trumps Hate, Good is more powerful than Evil, and actions indeed have consequences.  So, in those famous words of the Grail Knight (portrayed by Robert Eddison), in the 1989 film classic, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade…..  Choose Wisely.

 

God Bless You and Be well.

(Up Where We Belong: Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes)
Who knows what tomorrow brings
In a world few hearts survive
All I know is the way I feel
When it’s real, I keep it alive
The road is long
There are mountains in our way
But we climb a step every day
Love lift us up where we belong
Where the eagles cry
On a mountain high
Love lift us up where we belong
Far from the world below
Up where the clear winds blow
Some hang on to used to be
Live their lives looking behind
All we have is here and now
All our lives, out there to find
The road is long
There are mountains in our way
But we climb a step every day
Love lift us up where we belong
Where the eagles cry
On a mountain high
Love lift us up where we belong
Far from the world we know
Where the clear winds blow
Time goes by
No time to cry
Life’s you and I
Alive today
Love lift us up where we belong
Where the eagles cry
On a mountain high
Love lift us up where we belong
Far from the world we know
Where the clear winds blow
Love lift us up where we belong
Where the eagles cry
On a mountain high
Love lift us up where we belong
