Existential Seeking

As I studied all religions, I did find

Each one had not always been so kind.

When they have acted lovingly instead,

They have followed this golden thread.

Through these posts, I am sharing my insights with other seekers, those people who are searching, questioning, exploring, and earnestly seeking answers to the purpose of their life and of others.

It is for those who know in their hearts that there must be more to life than just making money, blindly following a religion, or concerning oneself with only a small circle of family and friends.

These posts are for people who reject notions that we are all sinners, or little more than intelligent animals. It is for people who believe that a glorious, joyful and purposeful life is possible now.

I will go into greater detail on the golden thread I found. If any of my conclusions cause you to pause, re-evaluate, and seriously consider your journey, I will be a happy man.

“Read not to contradict and confute; nor to believe and take for granted; nor to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider.” This quote from Sir Francis Bacon, 1561–1626, reveals that centuries ago, he too saw the basic differences in peoples mindsets. In my last post, I labeled these mindsets. Perhaps this saying inspired me, years ago, to write similar conclusions in my book.

Sir Francis Bacon was an English lawyer, philosopher, statesman, and essayist but is best known for leading the scientific revolution with his new “experimentation and observation” theory, which is the way science has been conducted ever since.
