The book of Ecclesiastes is well known in the bible for asking the really tough questions that we face in life. It questions the meaning of life, death. The quarrels, grudges and the fecklessness of life.
"There is no remembrance of people of old, and even those who are yet to come will not be remembered by those who follow the; Ecclesiastes 1:11"
A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance; Ecclesiastes 3:4
What does anyone gain from all their labors at which they toil under the sun?; Ecclesiastes 1:3
For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward, and even their name is forgotten.; Ecclesiastes 9:5
fateful or faithful, I know not for what manner of conscience causes a man to commit perjury or what is the substance that causes a man to stay the course.
sojourners on the bridge that serves as the great divide our paths are entwined by the freedom of our own choosing by the passions that rule the roost
for our decisions and our in-decisions make for the choices we make we are all at the mercy of the trials of life- some enamored by their anger, malice and temper while others tempered by the knowledge of temperance
our fires and our flares, nothing but a blip in the great expanse of time when will we realize the ephemeral- nature of our volitions? nothing!!! in the grand scheme of things.
In the end , we are but a product of our emotions transient thoughts that capture our imagination lascivious imagination sparking the loins for some while tugging the heart strings of others to a greater cause but we all perish for ever and our memories die with us.
But for the choicest few there is reason to celebrate for the life that we seek, is not of this world this world is but a firmament to temper our souls- for the joyous life ahead.
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.; Ecclesiastes 9:10
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.; Ecclesiastes 3:11
