LITTLE DID WE KNOW

Little did we know…. that one fine day we would be born in a human body as a little baby… born on a rock, rotating and revolving through space…. a beautiful place that has wonderful oceans and mountains and skies and birds… an animal kingdom that is quite extraordinary… plants that are quite marvelous… and that around three or four years of age our ‘awareness’ would kick in…

And at this 3 or 4 years old as our awareness grew…we would become more and more aware that we were surrounded by people… soon thereafter we would start school and become even more aware… as we became teenagers (or for many much earlier) we started to become aware of just how fragile life can be…

I remember losing a friend who was only 16 years old, in a horrible car accident, and thinking that it could have been me… but it wasn’t, and to be honest, I was thankful…

Some live extremely long lives and others extremely short lives… seems we have little say in the matter… and life becomes more mysterious as we wonder just how many days we do have… at some point we become aware of Good and Evil in the world… the possible existence of God and the devil… we become aware that good and evil is not so much in the world but in people…

A lot of good things can happen to us…we can fall in love and be loved… we can be extremely good-looking and life seems to fall in our laps… or we can be ugly and life tends to be more difficult, unless we can rise above it…

We learn about the competitive nature that seems to have been placed in us from God our creator… we learn that we have an extremely strong sexual desire… if we are a man, desire hopefully for a woman, and if we are a woman, hopefully for a man… this seems to be the best recipe… and as reproduction is only possible through a man and a woman, it keeps the human race going…

We become more and more aware of our mortality… at some point most of us begin to search for the deeper meaning of our life and what life means in general… we debate issues, we study things like the theory of Evolution ( and the Big Bang) also Creationist theories, that claim God spoke the whole thing into existence… and knows every human being that has ever lived or will live…

I think we start out in this life thinking that people are intrinsically / mainly good…and then we come to more educated experienced & mature thinking, that people have the propensity more for evil than good… and we find support of this in the Biblical theory of “The fallen state of man”

We also learn, most of us anyway… that if we are made in the image of God we have an eternal spirit… which means after we die we spend eternity either with God in heaven,or separated from God in hell…

Most people have a really hard time with the issue of Heaven and Hell, and it mainly revolves around ‘How could a loving God let anyone go to hell?’… but then we eventually figure it out, or it is revealed to us, that it is US who actually makes the choice… of where we spend eternity..

So LITTLE DID WE KNOW… that we would be given this life… and we really have no awareness or remembrance of being in the presence of God prior to our coming to Earth… even though that may very well have been the case… (maybe if there was pre-existence it has been erased, and we have to live this life as a testing ground to see if we choose good or evil, God or the devil.) If you’re a nonbeliever it’s easy to explain things away as your life being a random chance… so

We live and learn… and I’m quite sure I’ll be writing more along the lines of this type of my free thought thinking…. visit me at my blog….littleraventhepoet.blog… or my Twitter account @FrankPayton13…Sincerely Frank Payton…
