I Have A Vanishing Point In My Heart

Bloodhound Gang

Maybe you believe, like the Bloodhound Gang, that human beings ain’t nothin’ but mammals.  If you do, I’m really glad you’re here, even if you think this entire blog is non-well-formed gobbledygoop.  My comeback to the idea that human beings ain’t nothin’ but mammals is in the words of King Solomon.  I like these words because they have the poetic quality of describing a complex set of phenomena in just a few words.

He [God] has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. (Ecclesiastes 3:11, New International Version)

The word which is translated “eternity” means…

“properly concealed, that is, the vanishing point; generally time out of mind (past or future), that is, (practically) eternity; frequentative adverbially (especially with the prepositional prefix) always

To be a human being is to have a mystery inside oneself.  To be a human being is to wonder about always.  To be an animal is to be focused on individual and species survival, and the threats to individual and species survival.

Step 51 of Steps to Knowledge has its own ideas on what human beings are, while confirming the words of Solomon:

“Your life is not born of fear. Your Source is not born of fear. To be able to recognize your fear means that you must realize that you are part of something greater.”
