Sometimes logic does not do us justice. Logic did not lead Christ to the cross. Logic did not lead Paul to Christ. Logic is necessary for quality thinking… but if it’s all we have, we will end up miserable.
If we live looking to the world “out there” to find our answers, then we won’t find very much. For how can we recognize anything out there, that we don’t first see in ourselves. The things we hate in others, are often the very thing we hate in ourselves. What is blind to us “out there” is often blind to us “in here’.
Soren Kierkegaard once said, “A man who as a physical being is always turned toward the outside, thinking that his happiness lies outside him, finally turns inward and discovers that the source is within him. ”
Happiness, Love, Peace, is all work we must do in ourselves, before we can find it out there. Logic may say the answers are out there, but logic doesn’t give us God, Love, Happiness, Peace. These are things you touch, but things you experience. And, the experience will open your eyes to a new form of logic.
