Humanity And The Mystery Transition. by philoedu(m): 7:39pm On Sep 26, 2021
The enigma of our condition becomes greatest when we contemplate death or transition. As a result, we often suffer, not only from unnecessary pain, but also from what one might call the slow breaking down and frustration of our body. It is often a sound instinct that make us to recoil and revolt at the thought of a total or intentional destruction of being out of the scene.

The materialistic aspect of existence, however valuable it may sound, often to our dismay, becomes nothing and powerless and are often never enough to relieve us in the face of any anxiety of impending transition, when it is time.

And neither does it stand to prolong our span of life as to satisfied the desire of our future life, inescapably rooted in use. Hence, in the face of death or transition, our imagination often come to fail us in our helplessness in the face mystery of transition or death.
However, history has never fail to remind us that, in spite of such mystery, there were still some great thinkers of old, who has sung the praise of death. Although, this does not come to mean that we should seek for it, on the contrary, that we should realize death is inevitable and we cannot live forever.
The same is true that we cannot do without it irrespective of our material and spiritual well being and if you like, our intellectual standing, rather it remains a sino- guano, when the monument of transition comes.
Nowadays, we come to witness this unexpected transition of our dear beloved once, and continue to ask why, but without answer adequate to explicate the reason why, of which, no doubt, the answer could found in the mystery of death or transition.

However, it is becoming obvious, that we should not be disillusioned, if natural death is not often prevented, simply because the glorious death is God's greatest gift to man, especially when it comes after a full span of our existence.
In this perspective, we must not forget that Christ came and died for everyone for a reason known to all, and therefore, a type of vocation, which demand that everyone's ultimate vocation is this same divine vocation that tends to offer each and everyone the very possibility of sharing in the same way known to this mystery.
As a part taker of such mystery, you are require to always be prepared, as not be among the five virgin in the scripture who could not make it at the last moment.
It must be observed that often we have that tendency towards the unification of our life with something unknown, which of cause is God, knowingly or unknowingly.
And this tendency demands that we just have to accept with a bit of an effort in our daily existence to do greater things towards the love of our fellow human beings. As we strive to reconcile our spiritual life with that of our material well-being.

However, it is clear, that one of the greatest mistake of the contemporary setting is the supposition that our existence come to depend very much on our power of material well-being either through our intellectual process or not. Intellectual knowledge, no doubt, is useful and exceedingly important, but in the order of nature, it is not the originator but a dependent as a function of life.
In order to minimize and save ourselves from multiplicity of uncertainty and confusion of our everyday existence, we must realize the underlying unity of all things. Because at the back of all this things, is the presence of one great positive principle without which nothing would have the concept called existence.

This great positive principle demands we stand ready to recognize it whenever it acts in our consciousness to instill a new idea, suggestions, and plans for any assistance for the benefit of ourselves and others. Although, not without a pure mind and sordid thought for the benefit of the collective well-being.
