Well here I am at last at question number nine which for some reason I have been thinking was the last question to be answered. I just realized that there are 10 questions! Arggh! Oh well! You can see all of Rory’s Questions By Clicking Here.
It has taken me so much longer to get to all of these questions than I originally thought it would, but as I said in an earlier question…”I am immortal so I guess there is no need to rush.” 🙂
Here is question # 9 and my answer.
Which is more real; perfection, happiness or beauty and why do you think the way you do?
I think all three of those things are real, but only two of them exist in this world. Happiness and beauty are a part of this world and they share an intrinsic quality with this world; They are things that fade. Just like the seasons, happiness and beauty come and go.
Perfection though is not something fixed to a cycle. It is one of the qualities of eternity and therefore while it is known to our hearts, just like eternity is (Ecclesiates 3:11), it cannot be experienced on this side of the vale.
