Looking For Answers

By on June 15, 2010 in Society & Culture

Logic has always been an important part of my thinking. I am an IT professional with a background in application development. In recent times I have become increasingly spiritual as I ponder age old, but still unanswered, questions. Questions such as ‘what is the meaning of life?’ and ‘where do we come from?’.

Anyone with a rational, inquiring mind soon discovers that religion, despite having always claimed to have all the answers, does not have any one can call ‘real’. Subscribers to religious beliefs include some highly intelligent people but, for many of them, it is a matter of turning off the logic circuits in the brain. When it comes to religious matters, ‘having faith’, even to them, means ‘just believe without question’.

Equally, those advocating atheism expect us to believe we are an accident in a primeval soup. A soup within a universe that just came into being with a big bang. For me it still misses the fundamental question of where we ultimately came from and the meaning to life and I cannot accept that there is none.

There is an old saying that the ‘Truth is out there’, but if you seek such answers then I believe the real truth can only be found within and discovering it requires effort on your part. Most people want it handed to them on a silver platter and there is no shortage of people out there trying to peddle their ‘answers’.

The answer, I believe, is ultimately not an explanation that you can logically understand, but a knowing and awareness that you have to experience firsthand. Others can guide you but be wary of those that claim to be able to give you the answer. My advice is to search for the Truth Within.
