We go through hell searching for God-the Ultimate Truth. We scavenge through churches, synagogues, study halls, temples, and mosques. We travel abroad, leaning on walls, meditating on mountains, and ceaselessly praying in chapels. We are relentless in encountering The Infinite. Yet, every sincere man knows God eludes him. Not because He isn’t there, but because in the final analysis God dwells in the last place man cares to search- within himself.
We all strive for individuality and ways to express it. But how many of us apply our uniqueness- those treasured traits that set us apart? When there’s a fire deep down that burns within, do you quench the flames out of fear that those around you may oppose or even mock you? We all have an inner voice urging us to break out of the shell in order to express ourselves. The truth that lives in us far outweighs societal pressure and commentary. Bottom line- one cannot have one foot in truth-seeking while peddling in conformity out of appeasing others. A man must often toil in these times with the most vital question he’ll ever ask: “Who am I, really?”
