This is always more... can you look Ahead!?

 Life is movement and change! Or in the words of the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus: “No man ever steps in the same river twice.” The wind blows. Clouds move across the sky. Winter leeches colours from the leaves. Early last week I road a cart and cattle in Dutse,  Jigawa state, Nigeria, and it occur to me one time in history this was one of the fastest means of transportation. And only aristocrats and royal owned one or more of this sort. How times flies. What you are today will be the least people tommorow will never wish for. If you know this then, you indeed have an education.

 God could have created any type of universe, so why did He create one that was ever-changing and impermanent? However, now i understand Change is a necessary quality and essential attribute of this world, of time and place. Our world of existence is progressive. Without the feature of flux, life would be static. Tied to the mystery of creation is the concept that God, from His exalted seat of perfection, created an  universe that would gradually move further towards perfection. The ability of His creation to change is part of that purpose, and the dimension of time, its apparatus.

Life should not simply be about going through the same routine, in the same way. There need to be some kind of upward advance. As we know, we live in a transient world. The whole universe is expanding, is in a state of flux. To the materialist, this movement is arbitrary and direction-less: we are just floating through space with nowhere to go. But for one who sees with better education, life is not just changing, it is progressing and moving towards a higher plain, progress is the expression of spirit in the world of matter. And so lies the cure to meaninglessness: striving to progress.

To live the higher life you must each morn be better than its eve and each morrow richer than its yesterday. Progress is not an easy thing but it is achievable. I’ve realised that even though I don’t have the time or energy to do everything I would like to, if I chip away a little each day, then over time I will see progress.

Aspire for the best, dream more and above all grow daily. Drop the fetishism of yesterday and become improved in all things. There is more.... than what you are holding on to. Life is changing, new technologies, new heights for you.
