The Brain is wider than the Sky
For put them side by side
The one the other will contain
With ease and You beside

The Brain is deeper than the sea
For hold them Blue to Blue
The one the other will absorb
As Sponges Buckets do

The Brain is just the weight of God
For Heft them Pound for Pound
And they will differ if they do
As Syllable from Sound

Emily Dickinson.

"The great things in life are what they seem to be. And for that reason, strange as it may sound to you, often are very difficult to interpret.
Great passion are for the great of souls. Great events can only be seen by people who are on a level with them. We think we can have our visions for nothing.
We cannot. Even the finest and most self-sacrificing visions have to paid for. Strangely enough, that is what makes them fine.

And that is how the universe at times shows us it's devine order.

True story:

Back in the day, I'm going shopping with my mother. My husband says take the checkbook. I say, I don't need it. He says take it anyway. In the early afternoon we visit my brothers shop and he says you know, a house 2 doors down just went on the market today. We take a look and I say I want this house. We see the realtor who goes into sales mode and says, you really need to put a binder on this place, it's going to go fast. So I get out the checkbook and start making out the check. She says your new address will be and then she says the street number. I say, you are not going to believe this, that is the number of the check for the binder.

She was right, many friends of the guy who owned the house said they would have bought it if they had known. The house was meant for us and we spent many happy years there.

The check and address number were a sign from the universe, this is right and good and move foward on this deal. Yes, we had it checked out and yes my husband had already said he liked the houses on that street and yes we had been looking all over town for a good while before this happened.

Oh thank you for that link. I needed that.
Douglas Adams doesn't sound like the name of a person who bought eggs from china...or even worked at an egg-packing plant.

You are most welcome.

I tried to post it last night but You Tube was having issues.

Here is a link to the PBS series of the same name discussing the answer to life the universe and everything.



Eggs and China, well, at this point it time, I trust very little that comes from there. Especially when it comes to things like pet food and toothpaste and certainly eggs would be on the list.

subjective terms the question... "what is the meaning of life?" can only be answered by the one who asks.

If a fish we're to ask...the answer might be to swim.
If a bird we're to ask then the answer might be to fly.
If rabbit we're to ask it might be to jump around and eat grass...and so forth.

The real question being implied here is "what is the meaning of ALL life?"

That's the same as asking what is the meaning of all water?
Is it to drink?...is it for fish to live in?...is it to float a boat on?

The question can only be answered subjectively.



The only real question that can be valid is " what is the meaning of life to me?"

( just my own assessment )

Just exactly. Not everyone needs to do the same exact thing like a robot...simply bring glory to God by doing everything in their power that is good.
But we all know that "all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God" But the gift of God is free it is righteousness through Faith in Christ.

"all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God"...very profound verse...this is the very foundation of true faith...knowing ones own fallibility of being human, and accepting there are things that we can never understand...but yet trusting whole heartily in the very source that has brought us into being, and gives us life.

Jesus proved that life had meaning when his father anointed him at his baptism...He was baptized to bring Glory to God...who said "This is my Beloved Son in whom I am well pleased" right? so The meaning of life is not as vague as some people claim it is...Jesus is known as The Way, The TRUTH and The LIFE for a reason...
