The Big Question?

Melancholic,Uninspired,Restless,Impatient,Sad,Frustrated

i'm all of the above and more. what the !@#$% are we supposed to be doing here on this planet, in this lifetime? when things don't go your way, and the stress is getting to you, the 'big question' hits you hard on the head. rushing to get somewhere but...where? wakaranai...

life is like an endurance race, a triathlon, you got multiple principles and the course is long. at the end of your journey, you'll get a medal. in life, you'll meet your maker, God. instead of speeding down the autobahn, we need to pace ourselves in achieving our goal. we need to be patient, have self belief and trust in God. for those like me, who has strayed from His flock for so long, it's time have a conversation with Him once again. need to find my way...

well, fellow night birds, as i ponder my path ahead, i leave you once again with one of my favorite band, Pink Floyd...also, check out http://www.purposedrivenlife.com/

Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Its really good thinking to have God involving in our lives. And life is really like a box of chocolate, you will never know what flavor you gonna get until u open it and eat every single piece of it...have faith and keep praying. The journey is long and just gotto keep going...

Dear Raymundo,
I admire your honesty. I can related to your inquiry. I doubt the fact the 'medal' which awaits at the end of the race is to meet God. I would like to always think that this Journey is the Prize already. For we know this life in not eternity. Our eternity is in heaven. We are spiritual being and only in this lifetime we get experience what we experience.
I think your advice not to race is wise.. pacing pacing.
When we are down, we teach ourselves to be up. As we learn, we gain... Not lost but found.
God smiles .. like a parent smiling at a child.. never far ..
