Does God exist, does happiness exist, does love exist, does the realization of my deepest desires exist, does my bright and shining future exist, do I even exist as I would love myself to be? From the largest questions to the smallest questions about the nature of what is, what we allow ourselves to strive for, is the only thing that matters.
Here’s a beautiful passage by Bruce Di Marsico. Read it once and then go back and apply it to yourself and your own life.
“Everybody in the world can give you very good arguments that God does not exist or that happiness does not exist, and that does not stop you from striving for it. That is very in alignment with certain saints who say, “I don’t now whether it’s possible for there to be God or not, but I don’t care. I want there to be, and there is for me” – and that’s the same thing for happiness. Who cares if it doesn’t exist, I am still going to have it. Who cares if it’s impossible, that’s what I still strive for, and somehow it would be really okay even if pure, perfect, absolute happiness were never reached, as long as you constantly got closer to it. And if we don’t object to that concept, we understand what many people mean by God in terms that we might be able to understand. That although God is unknowable, unreachable, unattainable and ineffable, that has never stopped us from anything.”
