Life is Like a Pop Quiz You Haven't Done the Reading For
Our first existential crisis was the moment we arrived, slimy and crying, in the world.
(“Hello there, little one! Welcome to the world! Here’s a spanking!”)
Of course, at that moment we don’t even have words to help us. (We’re that oblivious.)
But if we could have used words, that’s the moment when we probably would have asked, for the very first time, “The Big Questions.”
What the heck is going on here?
What’s this all about?
Who am I?
Where did I come from, and where am I going?
What the heck is going on? What is the meaning of all this?
What should I do?
What the heck is going on?
We call these “The Big Questions.”
We ask them (sort of) the moment we arrive, and we ask them several - many - more times throughout our lives. Some of us more than others (especially if you’re somewhat prone to existential crisis, like us.)
These Questions – and our answers to them – are much more important than a lot of folks seems to realize.
They’re so important, in fact – and so sensitive, and they affect us so deeply – that a strange thing happens: a lot of folks just ignore them.
Or at least, they ignore them as much as possible, until they can’t anymore.
It’s understandable, really. They can be overwhelming. Since they’re 1) huge, and 2) really important, it’s no mystery why we might just grab the remote & watch a rerun of Jeopardy instead. Combine that with 3) we’ve never been trained or even prepared for this whatsoever, and suddenly we’re feverishly chainsmoking entire seasons of reruns.
That’s not a good approach. In Our Humble Opinion.
But we think there’s another approach.
One that’s much better.
