Must we have evidence to know the truth?
Mostly we do. Unless we can just see it plain as the day. But then that too is evidence. So I think in all aspects of the material world we do need evidence to believe if something is true or not.
The only exception is the spiritual beliefs. Here we go by what our heart knows to be the truth without having solid evidence.
How much control does a person have over their life?
I don’t think we have a lot of control over our lives. We are born in a family without given a choice. The circumstances of our upbringing are also pre-determined. As adults, we make choices and have some control over our lives but we still are affected by what’s going around us. So a safe bet would be 50-50 split.
What is gravity and how does it work?
Gravity is when Mother Earth calls you for a hug.
Or when your hair defy it by standing on your head and other body parts which could have done better by staying in their respective positions, sag down.
Can a person be happy if they have never experienced sadness? How about vice versa?
I think we can. But would we appreciate it that much if we didn’t know the other side of the spectrum!
Would we realize that being happy is a blessing not conferred on everyone? I think we won’t value happiness that much if we didn’t know sadness.
Please feel free to share a song, a poem, a quote, or an image or photo to show what you were grateful for during this past week.
This little guy just stayed long enough for me to take its picture.
