What is It?
It has no form or shape, yet exists. What is it? It is everywhere, but nowhere to be seen. What is it? It has no cast, creed, color, or sex; but is responsible for all human existence. What is it? For science, it is too obvious and never mentioned. For religion, it is an afterthought. Yet, for the individual seeker, it becomes an invaluable gift.
What is it, that allows the heaven and earth to exist, do you know? Call it God, call it by any other name, it still remains nameless. No living organism could survive without it. It is the only fact worth mentioning, and the only thing considered worthy of our respect, yet, we ignore it.
No political candidate could be elected without its support, no president would be able to address the nation, or a surgeon be able to operate. What is it? It allows you to get up in the morning and to go asleep at night, yet, it is ever vigilant, never misses a beat in its rhythmic pattern, and worthy of the name Lord. What is it? Fires cannot destroy it, a thief cannot steal it, no amount of money can pay for it, and it has no sex. What is it?
It is the only Gift worth having, but is never unwrapped. Its value is priceless, but considered unimportant. It is impeccable in its design, worthy of praise, and filled with humility and need to serve. What is it?
It is never judgmental, religious, or political in nature, yet, described to be the only asset worthy of praise. What is it?
It came at birth and leaves at death. What is it? No one talks about it until death do us part. What is it? It is our most loyal friend. It comes whether we want it to or not. It sustains us in good and bad times, makes no comments concerning our conduct, and never raises its voice in protest. It merely waits, and waits, and waits, to be recognized. What is it?
It can only be heard when all noise is ceased, the body rests, and the soul cries out. What is it? It has no residence, but lives everywhere. No matter where we go, it is always at home, thriving and prospering when all other things are decaying and withering. It is the invisible pillar of our existence, always present, but never seen. What is it? It is the only constancy, the only reality worthy of its name. What is it?
It cannot be accused, abused, slandered, or be offended; what is it? It has no name, but everyone knows it. It has no intrinsic worth by our standards, but remains priceless. What is it?
All the gold, silver, and precious jewels of this world cannot pay for it, yet, everyone possesses it, even the poor. What is it? It frees men of sin and casts others into bondage, what is it? It is the most durable, most enduring and everlasting, and the only constancy known to us.
It comes from nowhere and goes to nowhere, but remains always present. It is the best known secret, beyond human comprehension, that is seldom talked about. What is it?
It acts as a servant but a Master of all things. What is it? In its name we honor the dead and kill the living. What is it? It is never acknowledged for its humility, praised for its worth, or adored for its godlike feature. What is it?
We forget the times it helped us to invent and to discover things, such as the wheel and fire. We never consider it a priority in our life and suffer because of it. We dress up to go to the ball, forgetting what allows us to do all things. What is it?
When it came, free will came. When it came, freedom called. And, when we ignored it, we became enslaved. What is it?
Its power remains unmatched. Desires, wants, and wishes are dependent on it. Privileges and rights sustained by it. Yet, it only asks to be recognized. What is it? The rich and the poor are both dependent on it. So is every cat and mouse, lion and lamb, and dog or cat. What is it?
The imperceptible strength that allows a pillar less structure to exist, spin off universes, and destroy its own creation, certainly should not be ignored, should it? If we do, can we afford to pay for the consequences of such an act of folly? Would it not be better to know what is the cause of all things, without becoming self-involved in the creation? After all, what did we do to deserve LIFE?
