The more I read about different religions and the philosophies and rationales behind them the more it seems everywhere the same questions and problems exist-- why are we here, tensions between scriptural authority and spiritual experience, reconciling reality with a higher reality and so on.
I am actually quite tired of it and the whole concept of religion right now because everyone just wants to be right and is convinced they are right, and experiences they are right-- and it makes sense until there is a realization that everyone else also feels that way, and maybe there is no real difference.
Whilst I can understand how there is a pressing need for some to find out why and how we are existing (and where we go next) before we can live easy and meaningfully, I don't feel it myself presently, maybe I never really have? Life in general just seems ridiculous and meaningless, no matter how you try to explain it to me.

I've been gone for awhile and the picture above succinctly summarized my disappearance. Birthdays after birthdays...
It truly is scary how we are all turning twenty-one, one by one. So maybe it isn't the worst thing in the world, maybe it isn't the beginning of the degeneration of mind body and soul, maybe it is going to be the most exciting time of our lives. Who knows?
But no matter, some things are just not meant to be dissected. I am just going to eat my cake, sit here and wait for tomorrow.
