Of recent, I have watched different programmes about the end of the world. And it really got me thinking of what really matters, not the bills which sneaked stealthily through my door this morning, nor my recalcitrant agent or my elusive publishers. None of this weighty issues bothered me this morning when I woke up but just this composite thought. Our beautiful earth is groaning under the weight of incessant wars, uncontrollable population and sheer wickedness and cruelty directed towards all living things. The degree and level with which these atrocious acts have been repeatedly committed is alarming. And I thought, will the world truly come to an end?
Yes, there will be an end, but no one can really predict the exact time and moment. And you would think that sometimes we should just pause and reappraised our lives, but do we do that? Don’t know about you but I sure do once in a while, like now as I am writing this piece.
And I ask myself soliloquizing, are we living in a cocoon? Isolated from the real world or actually living in ‘a world village’ whereby we can integrate and live with anyone from any race, tribe or ideologies. Where there is nothing like been politically correct, where there is no cast system, where the smoky bridge between the rich and the poor are irrevocably extinguished.
But It was not so in the beginning. God created all things beautiful and then the devil came and mess it up right? Wrong! Humans did the messing up bit, we lost the plot big time. But how do we rectify it all, simple! By becoming less of a monster!!
But if the world will really come to an end then what is the essence of life itself? This is a question I often ask myself; why the race to be rich at all cost and at the same time why would you want to be a pauper? If the world should implode today due to our destructive natures and selfishness, what would have been the reason for it all in the first place?
Why was the earth created by God? Why create humans and allow them to build weapons of mass destruction to annihilate each other? Now, these are questions I can’t comfortably answer but I do know that God gave us free will, it’s up to you what you make of it!
And to all my questions above, I believe the essence of life is love. It’s as simple as that and I truly believe God created the world out of His love for humanity and all the richness of the earth for us to enjoy.
Maybe time is running out but we can still make an impact. Whether the world ends when I finish writing this post or in five billion years. We can make a change. A random acts of kindness will make us less of a monster.
Thanks for reading my post!
I honestly have not finished reading this post. But so far I like where it’s going and I had planned on writing about this exact same topic, only it’s so complex and has so many different angles to touch on that I just can’t began to start. I guess I’m not ready to take on such a huge task yet. But I can’t wait to finish reading this and see what else you have to say. I agree in many ways and I hope to make a change as well. Good luck in you endeavors!!

This was actually my first post, I was writing a new post when I read through this article and I thought it was right for this moment in time. Hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
Absolutely, We should own up for our blunders and make our world a better place. Nice post Seyi!
Thanks Arjun for your comment, you’re quiet right!! Cheers-:)
Nice post, and sometimes I think the topic of ‘the reason of our existence’ and the Universe may be the most under-rated, less talked about thing I can think of.
You’re right, I wonder why! Thanks for your comment and for stopping by! Cheers-:)
I try to show the Creator that I appreciate what he’s done by caring for the earth in the small ways that I can–recycling, walking or using mass transit, living simply, caring for my home and garden, etc. And now I’ll add random acts of kindness to my list.
Beautiful, that’s so sweet of you! I love what you do to care for the planet, I hope many people would subscribe to your way of life! I certainly do, and thanks for visiting my blog.
Difficult subject you handled very well. I believe love is the answer, love of and for God and each other. Little acts of kindness is a wonderful way to show this love. Blessings.
Thanks for your wise comment, I’m glad you stopped by my blog and I do appreciate it!
Wow you cut right to the heart and I couldn’t agree more. I just love the way you string words together, you’re an incredible writer and this is a great topic!
Thanks Freddie for your kind comment, I’m blushing now, thanks again for stopping by my blog!
Love and blessings-:)
Real thoughtful for a “first post”. You don’t just read and write books, but think about them and their subjects. And thank you for being one of my regulars at BY THE MIGHTY MUMFORD! You wouldn’t happen to want to share WHY you liked certain posts, would you? Will read more of yours!
All your posts are beautifully written and I do like your style of writing! But if you want me to pick out each post and comment on why I liked them, I can do that. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
It’s not for us to know when the end comes, but if we live each day as if it’s our last think of all we could accomplish. Great post.
Thanks Sandra and that was a powerful input! I love it!! Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Love and peace-:)
We don’t think the creation of our world has anything to do with some god. It’s evolution, physics and chemistry. And our planet will surely be destoyed but in geological times. But if we go on like we do now, life on earth as we know it will come to an end like 65 mio. years ago.
I’m going to disagree with you there my friend. I happen to believe in God, I’m a Christian and that’s the core of my faith. However, you have a right not to believe in Him, and that’s fine. But we still have a duty to take care of this planet as long as possible for future generations. Who knows when it will implode? Until then, I’ll campaign for peace and love, it’s our only chance really.
I appreciate your comment Klausbernd.☺️
