Tebbe Davis

We have all been placed in this life to explore and discover our Purpose; our voice, a vision and meaning to life.  It's as if the purpose of life is to discover the purpose of life.  Its just that easy.  The path to the end, which is NOW! (so far) is one of endless folly and experiment.  To be "comfortable", complacent and stagnant, is a fail for me.  The exhilaration of the unknown and self reliance, and the resource of community and a greater love is where I begin my plight.  "if you are truly happy and you know that every moment in your life has added up to where you are right now; then you have made no mistakes". Now rejoice and continue.   

I look at the sky, the earth, beyond and within. I try to understand others and my own complexity by understanding the cosmos and by preparing myself for endlessly forthcoming discoveries.
