Seeking Fulfillment

We can discern two broad courses in the search for solutions to the fundamental questions of human life. In the first, people have searched within the resultant, material world. Those who walk this path, believing it to be the supreme way, kneel before the glories of highly developed science. They take pride in its omnipotence and the material comforts it provides. Nevertheless, can we enjoy full happiness founded only upon external conditions that satisfy the flesh? The advance of science may create a comfortable social environment in which we can enjoy abundant wealth and prosperity, but can that alone truly gratify the spiritual desires of the inner self?” (Divine Principle, p. 3, para 2)

 

Spiritual desires evoke intelligence freedom love and happiness. The desire to be fully alive yet completely at peace should not have to be parceled away into separate components. The thrill of travelling fast is not separate from the calm of the deliberate driver who steps on the gas.  Internal joy must be manifested externally.

 

The beautiful landscape of Glasgow, Scotland captured by Sandy Carson portrays the inner longing for adventure and good old-fashioned comradire of Ian and his mates on a biking trip through the West Highland Way. The bikers enjoy the sparse bothies and cold nights as they live to testify to their humanity. Ian admits after he describes his pure cute delight of zipping down a slick rocky road on his bicycle, “Sometimes the stones we find in Scotland are the ones between our own ears.” Fortunately, his zeal for the journey is met with success at the Isle of Skye. His internal objective has been met with a positive physical completion and that gives Ian a deeper appreciation for this expedition in the raw.

 

Physical happiness and internal joy are not meant to be separate. God and humanity are also not supposed to be divided because God created Adam and Eve as his children who are his body. God is not to be separate from love when He is love. Every love should belong to God. Since there is a lot of love that results in evil it can be concluded that God can only be united with love in His domain and not with love in Satan’s domain. It is important to know and understand Jesus Christ at his Second Coming in Sun Myung Moon.
