“Down how many roads among the stars must man propel himself in search of the final secret? The journey is difficult, immense, at times impossible, yet that will not deter some of us from attempting it. We cannot know that has happened in the past, or the reason for all of these events, any more than we can with surety discern what lies ahead. We have joined the caravan, you might say, at a certain time; but we in one lifetime see all that we would like to see or learn all that we hunger to know.”
“The Immense Journey,” by Loren Eiseley.
So, one of many mysteries is, why have 400 million North Americans been so richly blessed? In objectively cold terms, it seems unfair. While billions of people have to cope daily with poverty, starvation, oppression, the horrors of war, cruel dictators and the lack of economic and political freedom, many Americans struggle with obesity, overindulgence, substance abuse, conspicuous consumption and increasing spiritual apathy. Albert Schweitzer would probably say that a growing number are “naively unaware of the real challenges” of human existence.
On the other hand Albert Einstein opined:
“A hundred times every day I remind myself that my
inner and outer life depend on the labors of other
men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in
order to give in the same measure as I have received
and am still receiving.”
Therefore, is the cup half full or half empty? Ironically, is it not due to our freedom of time and wealth that we can afford to even contemplate these mysteries?
In the spirit of Albert Einstein, I wish all of you a glorious 4th of July.
