Life is and will ever remain an equation incapable of solution, but it contains certain known factors (Nikola Tesla). Life is a mystery. There are many unpredictable and uncontrollable factors. We did not get to decide before we were born what our race, gender, nationality, family, birthplace, genetics, talents, or other attributes would be. That’s not to say we don’t have an influence on some of these after we are born. We cannot change who our birth parents were but we can decide not to associate with them. We can adopt a surrogate family if we don’t like our biological family. We can change our gender whether through identification or surgery. We can manipulate genetics, talents, and other attributes. We can create more opportunity and skills for ourselves. What known factors are there in life? There are physical laws that are fixed as there are spiritual laws that are in place (whether we believe it or not). If I decide not to “believe” in the law of gravity my belief does not negate gravity. On the other hand I can accept that gravity exists and take steps to adapt or influence gravity. The same may be true of spiritual laws and truths. Not accepting spirituality as a truth does not alter the existence of spirituality or the spiritual realm in any way. However, when I accept the existence of an unseen spiritual world with laws and processes of its own, only then can I learn, grow, and develop spiritually to my greatest potential. I can enjoy the benefits of spiritual talents, skills, and possibilities as well. Yes, truly life is mysterious. There is a great, vast world we can explore both physically and spiritually. The sooner we get started the more we will discover. What are we waiting for?
