Quest for the Kingdom

Below, in the video, is a collection of some artwork by myself along with an original soundtrack composed and performed by Bill Canino.

In the video I pursue the question about the source of being and the meaning of being.

How is it we got here? And why? What possible purpose can being here have if we do to ourselves what we as a human race have done to ourselves? Looking at the world we humans have created from our value systems leads me to think our value systems are bankrupt and corrupt. At the hyperlink is another video on the topic.

Is it possible 'being' is it's own purpose? I don't know. The one thing we know for sure is that 'here we are' headed to the grave and it appears to not be an easy trip. We have taxes to pay before we get there. That means we have to work to pay for the damned mess we refer to as civilization.

I refer to the Christ event foretold in the messianic prophecies of the Hebrew faith. It is interesting to realize that the appearance of the messiah is in direct relationship to the misery level of the world. Rachel was weeping for her children because they had been killed. (bible metaphor). In the context of human need a spiritual hope arose in the hearts of those oppressed with the weight of existence. The impulse of the source of being responded by producing a demonstration of how to live and to understand being and existence. We generally know this as Jesus of Nazareth. He taught the gospel of the kingdom which is the remedy for what ails the human race.

The gospel of the Kingdom reveals something about you and who you are. You can begin to think about what being a child of God in this world means by clicking (here) It is a little story Jesus told. The teaching in this story contains the reason the church people had him snuffed. Apart from that the story reveals something about what it means to be a human. The Legend of The Grand Inquisitor from The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky is an example of what happened to Christ. I urge you to read it.

I find Christ significant mainly because I find very little worthwhile being produced by the movers and shapers of present society. Christ, as messiah, has introduced the human mind to the age to come. He left tantalizing riddles he called parables behind to get us thinking about it. Figuring out what it means seems important.
