A Full Moon sparks a discussion? What do you think?

Tonight the moon looked especially big. It hasn’t looked this big  to people on earth  for 18 years.  There are scientific reasons for this. My husband explained it all to me. He’s a scientific guy.

It started my husband and I thinking. We’ve discussed the very same issues for years and years. We always come up with different ideas.It’s always fun to speculate, but who really knows?

Do you ever wonder?

1. How did we get here?

2. Where are we going when our lives are over?

3. Do we really go anywhere, or is it  just over when it’s over?

4. Why do we consider the moon and stars so beautiful?

5. Is there life on other planets? It would be silly to think there isn’t in the large universe.

6. Have there been other places like the earth that self-destructed? Have we been here before?

7. Do we have a spirit that turns into something else?

8. Is there any sense to all the religions of the world?  Or are they just people’s ways of coping with their eventual demise?

9. Is there a creator?

10. Could all this just be an accident?

I’m sure I might get a reply from a religious fanatic, or someone who is certain they know the answer.

But nobody can really know. Even if you’ve been revived from death, you can’t know if your experience was real, or just some trick you’re brain was playing on you.

By the way, my husband and I will be married for 39 years today.  Isn’t it nice that we can still want to wonder together? Isn’t it nice we’re still in love?

Happy Anniversay!

  1. Good questions. We ask ourselves similar ones often too. As life progressed, our answers have changed, but we still believe that we are repeatedly turned back to share and learn.

  2. It is good you are still asking the questions? It’s also obvious getting to the end that you have discarded some of the answers. There are answers to every questions, we just don’t know or accept some yet. I think our searches depending on how diligent and open we are lead to experiences over time which then becomes our belief system.
    Happy searching. Keep searching and if there is a creator, and you search diligently for him, you just might very well find him.
    Happy anniversary!!!

  3. It’s so sweet that you’re still in love after all these years and still wonder about those things together. Happy Anniversary, by the way.

    These questions are the ones that make my husband and I go “hmmm” and come up with what may sound intelligent and profound to others, yet crazy and ridiculous to some. But the process of trying to find (or make up ) answers is fun. This is what I believe (for today), no matter what size we are – compared to the rest of the universe, our significance and existence is by design and intentional… by what/who, why and what for, I don’t know. Now you’ve got me thinking…

  4. You know… sometimes I think it isn’t so extremely important what two people in a relationship talk about. It’s important they DO talk! (sometimes even argue…)
    And the moon is definitely a great topic to discuss… uhm… at least that’s what I think.
    I like the way the blog post is written!!
