    So I can't help but wonder almost everyday about life and it's mysteries and wonders. I'm not sure if it's part of growing up, what I'm come to be passionate about, or just me finally paying attention to life. I often think about what it is we are, why we exist, what is this floating rock we're held to by some powerful force we call gravity?

    My problem is I have a hard time with the idea of God, I don't dismiss is, I just don't see it as the for sure only option, as many don't of course. It is hard to believe some all powerful being made life when there is something as vast and magical as the universe right outside our planet. I can't even comprehend how small we are in the big picture. I kick my ass with the question of what is this universe? What are we part of...? This is where what I've become very passionate about comes into play. I'm a raw foodist for the most part and just believe in the healing powers of nature. We live on a giant floating sphere which surrounds a humongous...fireball. Beyond that are millions of these other planets and same fireballs(stars). It just goes on and on. It is fucking insane to me. I sound like such a hippie, but I cannot help it. This planet provides the most nutritional foods for our species BY ITSELF! Ugh, I dont know... I just get sick of none of my friends or family listening and just saying it's life, I know that much... Any thoughts? Advice? I just want to not wrack my brain with this anymore. icon_question.gif

    Any thoughts? Well... you're right.

    Nothing wrong with letting your thoughts move along with it, but you can stop trying to wrap your head around it, because it's too big for that.

    What is our place and our role? Maybe to treasure it, to foster it, to not take it for granted.

    We're part of the order. We're part of the chaos. It's called dynamism, and it's what keeps things moving. Otherwise, you've got entropy, atrophy and then nothingness.

    I believe Socrates said "The unexamined life is not worth living." I often ask myself questions like why am I here and what am I passionate about. For whatever reason our upbringing, environment, or an innate feeling inside we have certain interests and passions. If you enjoy raw food and it just makes sense to you, follow that. Too many people live mundane lives and get into a safe routine and never ask themselves these questions.

    If you can find a few good people that ask these questions too you can have conversations that go on and on and on; it's a lot of fun icon_wink.gif.
