“The more unintelligent a man is, the less mysterious existence seems to him.” – Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher
It absolutely baffles me when a one-word answer is supposed to suffice an intricate, open-ended question. Infuriates me when my further soul-searching queries elicit merely an “I don’t know” or “I don’t care.” Do we live on the same planet, folks?? ‘Cause here’s the newsflash: Outer space is still uncharted, cancer still uncured, man’s evolution still controversial, prayer miraculously healing, jazz still indefinable, and love indescribably infinite. And yet countless people numbingly walk the earth, unabashedly unfazed with this journey through time and space we call “life”. The dimensions of their reality equals a monotonous grey amidst an endless Crayola-ed potential. But with all this stated in truth, may we not mock the colorblind, though we might pity them. Instead may we each task ourselves to seed their curiosity to explore; cultivate their excitement to experience more; nurture their hearts and souls with drive to find their own purpose. For as their minds grow, so does your own mysteriously, glorious existence.
