As with all things in life questions always surface as to the purpose of ones own existence. The burning desire to find answers has pondered and perplexed man since the beginning of time. Whether we choose to accept the rational that man has dominion over all or not, or is the essence of when life ends sums up the justification that we are all just dust in the wind a prelude to more unanswerable questions?
As sobering as life may seem to be today one cannot help face the realization that when God put us here on earth we really do have a purpose. A reality that man has a sense of responsibility for a life that is so precious. Humanity has always had the ability to find and make meaning to their own existence. But, all too often that road to find that meaning is hidden or rerouted by those who have chosen a path more sinister to follow. With deception and deceit a will full desire to impose injustices for so many has prevailed for centuries. History is full of those inflictors of terror from Biblical times all the way through today. It was in the 20th century that humanity witnessed one of the most horrific acts of wanton catastrophic carnage's in history. As it is so often it is the poor, the destitute, the feeble and the hungry are all victims of life's struggle to survive in a world plagued by man's own thirst for power, control and wealth. When Hitler came to power deluding the masses in Germany to think that he had the greatest plan to ease the economic woes of a country the trap of deception set the world on fire.
Now, time has eclipsed into the 21st century and yet again mankind is faced with the realization that history has only repeated. A repeat but with different characters in play. It seems that we are all witness to certain individuals who have displayed that "Marie Antoinette like syndrome." They, through their actions have continued to show not by example their benevolence toward humanity but by the brutality and savage acts of total disregard for the sanctity of life, liberty and livelihoods.
On the world's stage there are players whose dominance prevails despite public outcry's of injustices. It is these injustices that have left whole societies to languish in desperation seeking any improvement in a life that is so precious. In Syria, an entrenched leader continues to defy the public outcry have only made a country embroiled in bitter savage conflict. A civil war that has ignited flames of open rebellion that could at a moments notice spread like wildfire and engulf the entire Mid-East. At the same time we now have Egypt on the verge yet again of another coup to topple government that has only deteriorated the already deplorable economic conditions that have lingered for far too long.
While all this is playing out in the Mid-East lies a hidden more elusive danger that is poised to engulf the planet. With stealth like agility mankind has inadvertently set in motion a potential cataclysmic catastrophe. For the sake of more power, control and wealth we continue to ignore the realm of reality that our own greed and expedience of our continued consumption of existing energy that powered the first and second industrial revolution has put the whole planet on a collision course with disaster.
We are witnessing today scenarios that have been played out before where the power brokers of indifference have orchestrated events that continue to keep populations impoverished, languishing in acute desperation seeking any hope that someday they too will be able to live a life that has meaning and a purpose. We all have to remember that all life has a purpose, a destiny to fulfill. From the tiniest insect to the giants of the ocean all have an internal part in the evolution of mankind. But when man sets a course of disruption in the balance of nature and in the abilities of societies to expand and improve for the sake of personal self gratification whether it is in the forms of more power, more control or more wealth the world will only continue to ignite the flames of destruction.
