“You question happens to be essentially the same as the fourth question in a series of questions often asked by Ravi Zacharias, one of my favorite philosophers.  As Ravi puts it, God has put it in the heart of every man to ask himself and attempt to answer for himself, four essential questions, which have to do with origin, meaning, morality & destiny.  Where do we come from? Why are we here?  What determines right & wrong?  Where am I going?”

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
