Goho: Objective morality

Midnight Introspection

IT IS apparent that there is objective morality that covers every aspect of our lives. One can attempt to downplay and shrug off such notion but one soon later realizes its inescapable and ineradicable nature.

The simple actions and decisions we make each day carry out deep implications into our overall core being and the relationships we form

throughout our lives.

There is a natural order to the broad realities of our existence, th commonalities we share, the surrounding scientific and metaphysical laws we experience, and the customary struggles of humanity we face as a whole.

The complexities of our sinful and fallen nature, the selfishness and self-preservation of people in general, the evil and malevolence that lurk among us, and the redundancy and endlessness of humanity's problems.

We struggle with our inner conscience, truth-telling, righting many wrongs, and setting chaos into order. We are well aware of death being the ultimate reality and destiny, and yet we care to yearn to establish meaningful relationships, live fruitful lives in hopes of making a difference and leaving a lasting impact in the world.

Well beyond looking after our physical well-being, we are also very much susceptible to traumas that leave lasting and haunting scars. It is clear how fragile we can truly be, and how there may be every reason to become cynical and resentful.

And yet we yearn for love, peace, joy, contentment and fulfillment which may ultimately be a manifestation of our creator. It still remains a mystery how such intangible wonders come about and it seems implausible how these could merely be random byproducts from nothingness and meaninglessness.

Life is complex, and the difficulties around us guarantee a constant struggle throughout the journey. While there are no assurances, what is for certain is how living truthfully creates a profound clarity and fulfilling direction. It is in truth where we find wisdom. It is in truth where we find meaning. And it is in truth where we find love.
