Numb to Your Target
According to a CDC study, suicide has become the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. and is one of three leading causes that are on the rise. Fashion creator Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain's recent deaths are just two examples - with the usual media references to depression... but no specifics on how, when or where they lost sight of their PURPOSE.
Humans are 'cybernetic' creatures who need meaningful targets in Life. Like any homing device, if your guiding system is clouded by reality altering chemicals and you've lost focus on your "target," you'll miss it all together. Worse yet, you could up in a really bad place through no fault of your own.
We all experience let downs, disappointments and sadness in Life. Knowing these are inevitable, our Creator equipped us with an innate guidance system (our nerve system) to keep us on purpose and on track amid the stresses in Life. Numbing up that guidance system with chemicals renders it rudderless. You can't deal with Life if you can't feel it.
Never run out of something to say...
