What decides our real merit as human beings? Ultimately, it comes down to the philosophy we uphold and the actions we take based on our convictions.
Indeed, this life is a test. It is a test of many things – of our convictions and priorities, our practice and our resilience. In a bigger picture it is a test of our abilities to grow, test and put faith in what we learn. In the end, our convictions are greater than we may grasp for they often extend deeply into our own existence and far beyond our own life.
True merit is rarely specific to an individual in the grand scheme of a life – it honors and encompasses us all.
Peace and Love, Jim
