Blinding Epiphanies

Monday, March 17, 2008

I wonder why people look up to the sky, expecting to find answers to their questions. I know of several people who rely on signs for making life decisions. Before deciding on anything – from love and relationship matters to work issues – they wait for some possible sign, hint or symbol that may somehow lead them to the right decision.

Road signs aside, are there really signs out there that concretely tell us what to do? What if we miss them? What if we get conflicting signals? Do we just choose one sign and ignore the others? Then how do we choose what sign to choose? Do we again turn to signs to decide on what particular sign to follow and what to ignore?

Relying on signs is like letting our lives be decided by chance. A day, a month, a whole lifetime can pass, and then we realize that those blinding epiphanies we were expecting were never handed down to us. John Lennon once said, “Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.” Maybe life is what happens while we are busy looking for signs.

I found a dead pixel on my lcd monitor. It is usually a sign that I need to buy a new monitor.

But if you see a dead pixel in the sky that is the sign of "the rapture". Consider yourself warned. :)
