No matter who we are, where we come from or how we live, we ask ourselves at least once in our lifetime : “Why are we here?”
It is the simplest and most profound of all questions, the one that has never been answered and that will never stop being asked.
What naturally follows is the next question: “Does it start and end here on this planet?” This questioned has been tossed around and answered in so many different ways by so many religions, schools of thought, philosophies, that we are left as uncertain as when we first asked these questions.
Which leaves me with one more question: “Are we here in transit, passing by? And if so, then have we accomplished our mission if we had one? Or were we stuck in a human stop situation?”
