10.17 … in meditation, how shall I ever know thee? And in what manifestations shall I think of thee, my Lord? – The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 10)
Arjuna, in this epic tale, implores the God Person, Krishna, to reveal to mankind how God is to be known and recognized. This is the archetypal call that each human makes, and must make, to understand reality and his place in the Universe. What are we crying for? What are you crying for?
In everything that we do, we’re seeking. We seek for our identity, our place, our call, our significance, really our raison d’être. And in that seeking is the journey experienced, and in experiencing that journey is found life’s meaning and a deep fulfillment. We are extremely fortunate. In ages to come, we’ll look back at this amazing, short, intense, birthing experience on this planet with longing. Never again will we experience life at this coarse level, never again will we enjoy so much meaning and learning in such a short period of time. Let’s live, love and learn, that’s the only way forward!!
Daily Affirmation: Today I AM a seeker.
