Into nothingness

“None of us asked to be here, did we? We didn’t choose to come into existence any more than we chose where and when we were born and who our parents were. 

As human beings, we have been given not just existence (a rock has existence), and not just life (an amoeba has life), but life as rational free beings made in the image of God.

But we didn’t choose to come into existence as rational free beings made in the image of God, either. What God does offer us, however, is the choice to remain in existence; that is, to choose to have life, eternal life, in Him, which is what we can have because of Jesus and His death on the cross. “

What an intro to today’s Bible lesson!!! 

To an INTJ, it is orgasmic for it catapulted into the land of inquisition, which we love. Yes we all know we never asked to be here and it is posited to us options: yea or nay. However, the life we must choose is an idea, we haven’t seen it or felt it either. How can we choose and be certain of what we know not when our decision is off what we solely know. What we know, this, the life we live is different. Some are enthused by it and others care not for it. This life hurts. For most of us it is a struggle, we endure to survive. This life is made of hardships, losses, injustices. So we must choose on hope that these will not persist. What of the others then whose life lacks hardships, those who get everything they want, reach the heights they sought, have everything going for them? Do they choose wanting more of the same and will that be what they will get?

Will there be buyer’s remorse at the end of the day? Must we live for the end?  What of now?  

What if our choice is nothingness? Is that an option? To the land of nullity, if that’s the wish, can we get it? 

I don’t wish to be, at all. I don’t want to think or feel, exist, live. Detachment comes close but it’s not the same. I rather go where I started when I knew nothing at all. 

Knowing is the problem. Unknowing is freedom, not detachment.f

A thinker. I analyze everything. I live in my head, sometimes it is my protective mechanism and most times, I just like it. My mind has not failed me yet... My life's mantra: "Treat others as you would like to be treated". Blessed be! Fave quotes:“I'm not concerned with your liking or disliking me. All I ask is that you respect me as a human being.” Jackie Robinson
