Relationships anchor a human being in the Presence of Existence

We can trust in the Presence of Existence only in the course of making our relationships meaningful and experiencing values therein.  We can’t live in the present until we recognize purpose (meaning) in our relationships.  Unable to live in the present one tries living in past memories, but one can’t live in the past.  One then tries living in the hopes of future, but it is not possible to live in future as well.  Until a human being realizes meaning in his relationships, there is no anchor for him to live in the present and one wanders listlessly.  No one wants to keep wandering but the present (fragmented) traditions do not have provision for showing direction and goal to human being.  Every human being can evidence Presence of Existence in their living upon becoming Wise.  Wisdom comes in the form of definiteness in human being’s conduct, and from this reference it becomes possible to appraise a human being.  The Grandeur of human being is only in successfully evidencing Wisdom.  It is with this grandeur that human being can achieve continuity of happiness in their tradition.  Also with this they can achieve balance in their living with animal world, plant world and mineral world, making their use and righteous use, while acknowledging their complementariness.  It is with this human being can live with Purpose.  The Grandeur of human being is only in successfully evidencing Wisdom.  It is with this grandeur that human being can achieve continuity of happiness in their tradition.  Also with this they can achieve balance in their living with animal world, plant world and mineral world, making their use and righteous use, while gratefully acknowledging their complementariness.  In summary, human being can live purposefully upon achieving Wisdom.
