There are just so many Mysteries out there that will never get answered.

There just seems to be this person way back in the woods as, Parker Palmer put it, stronger than anything that life is throwing at me. Love bears all things I’ve heard from Richard Rohr quoting the Bible (1st Corinthians 13.17Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things) “Love bears all things.” to hold up, to sustain”—like a bearing wall, which carries the weight of the house. . . . To bear [also] means “to give birth, to be fruitful.” So love is that which in any situation is the most life-giving and fruitful.”
Revelations 3:12 “Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out:…”
Where is there to go? Where has there ever been any place to go? How did I get dropped here on this planet? Where was I before that happened? There are just so many Mysteries out there that will never get answered. Meanwhile I’m here on life’s terms that’s for sure and someday I’m going to die / James Baldwin quote: “It seems to me that one ought to rejoice in the fact of death–ought to decide, indeed, to earn one’s death by confronting with passion the conundrum of life. One is responsible for life: It is the small beacon in that terrifying darkness from which we come and to which we shall return.”
