Footsteps of the Masters

"Don't follow in the footsteps of the masters. Instead seek what they sought."


If our trail ends at this book then all is over.
All that is worth discovering has already been uncovered.
There is no point to look further for the answer of life has been transmitted to you in paperback edition.
Our world ended 2000 years ago.
Our need for growth, our spirit of change finalized upon camel skin and papyrus in a desert to the east.
Our life's meaning reduced to 70 year take home final.
You better study.
Walk in these footsteps or burn.
One two one two turn.

It would take a mere lifetime for anyone to even begin to understand this books meaning and unlock its secrets...like a puzzle or set of Chinese handcuffs to shackle your mind...blinders for a horse made to walk on a grooved path.

I do not attempt to state I know a answer, but I do know that you could also spend a lifetime studying the dung beetle and never unlock all of its secrets. I also know that life is bigger then the dung beetle and bigger then this book.

Perhaps the meaning of life really is just to give life meaning.

And we only differ so much as we define what meaning means.

Whether or not our existence has meaning, we don't know.

What we do know is that you and I will no longer exist (except for 1/2 of our DNA) in approx 40-50 years.

So the meaning of life is to be happy and enjoy our short time here.

Am I turning into a hippie?

Adding to Rocket from MY point of view, we may never know what meaning our lives held according to others.

Does it really matter if it meant anything to anyone else? Why can't it just be about what it means to us? To our 50% DNA if that's what we refer to our children as!? You get what you give and what you want out of it, so put the very best in.

Dad's a hippie Rocket. You still have a ways to go. ;0)
