What Is Life All About?...

"People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering."

St. Augustine (354 - 430)

What is life all about?

Nothing in life can seem to fulfill us and bring us happiness. The human heart is yearning for something more. No matter what we have, there is always something else we want.

Strange moral thinking we seem to have in our culture. It seems anyone can rationalize anything these days.

Yet, we must acknowledge that none of these can completely satisfy our inner longing...a peace that the world cannot give or understand.

In order to L.I.S.T.E.N to the inner voice of our hearts, we need to first be simply quiet

"We need to find God, and He cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature — trees, flowers, grass — grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence.... We need silence to be able to touch souls."

Blessed Mother Teresa (Theresa) of Calcutta
A Gift for God (1975)
