Life's Void & the Vanity of Life

There is a commonality that all of mankind shares.  Past, present, and future generations all have been searching to fill the void in life.  There is something missing in our existence and everyone searches for the meaning of life and our role in this world.

The world has taught us to satisfy our physical and emotional wants and desires to achieve happiness.  But the void is still there and something is missing.  The void seems to be emptiness; a part of our existence is incomplete.  King Solomon ruled in Israel in 967 B.C.E.  He was and still is considered one of the wisest men that have ever lived.  Kings and Queens of his day came to him to hear his and learn of his wisdom.  King Solomon wrote the book of Ecclesiastes in the Old Testament.  This is what King Solomon had to say about life:

To every thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heavens: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pull up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;  a time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.   What profit does he have who works in that in which he labors?  I have seen the task which God has given to the sons of men to be humbled by it. He has made everything beautiful in His time; also He has set eternity in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God makes from the beginning to the end.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 – 11


King Solomon said, “all is vanity”.  It brings to some the sayings that we hear today, like; “he who dies with the most toys wins”and "you can't take it with you".  What is the prize for the most toys and if you’re dead what is it you will get to enjoy?  Having goals and aspirations are not bad if kept in perspective.  But we all know there is more to life that what we achieve or possess. 

As Solomon said, “He (God) has set eternity in their (everyone’s) heart”.  So what does this mean?  Every one thinks of what is after death and most people are scared of the unknown. 

Find out the answer of eternity.
