    Who, what, where, when, and why are we alive?

    Who - those with a beating heart (and those who have physically died, and have gone on to their enternal destination),however, those whose heart is beating can still be spiritually dead inside - they are living, but they are not alive (have not claimed the promise of the abundant life while still on this earth)

    What - Plants that have not wilted and died, and creatures with a beating heart

    Where - In all creation - the heavens and the earth

    Why - Because of our Heavenly Father (each breath we take is because of Him)

    Who: God has made everything for its own purpose, even the wicked for the day of evil. (Pv. 16:4)
    What: FOR THE EARTH IS THE LORD’S, AND ALL IT CONTAINS. (1 Corinthians 10:26/Psalm 24)
    When: In The Big Inning...the first mention of Baseball in the Bible at Genesis 1:1.  Job also mentions, "There is no umpire between us."
    Why: "And then they will know that I am the Lord"...62 times in the book of Ezekiel alone.  And also, Revelation 5:9,  “Worthy are You to take the book and to break its seals; for You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation."

    I think when someone is having a great time and things are going well wouldn't pause to ponder about this question...must be just loving the life the way its going....what i see is some are born with better purpose and give a meaning for others to exist and some bring disaster with their concept of life...eg Jesus and Hitler

    Think you've overdone it with that series of questions.  Are you saying: Who are we?  What are we?  Where do we come from and go when we die?  When will we, as a species...end?  changed?  go into oblivion? 

    Why are we alive seems to be the real question being asked here.   My answer to this is to ask you, KeithJK, a question:  Have you now accepted as philosophy of life you can live with?  That is, one that appeals to you rational mind, your emotional welbeing, and grows as you grow?

    We are two fractions inner and outer. As you've proved society is slowly moving towards the inner ie questioning our existence and purpose.We all have a deep desire, a sense, a yearning love unknown that nothing else can satisfy  in our ordinary lives, but no sooner are we aware of this then we forget  and are distracted. Yet this never fully disappears unless we let the inner grow with us and accept the connection.

    Goal of life is" liberation"'which must be experienced.There is an inborn yearning for freedom in each individual which he seeks in different ways.Every human being is a mix of the material and spiritual forces and this gives rise to a clash between the two forces.Any object of the external world makes an impact on the mind.It is difficult to extricate oneself from worldly bondage because the senses,mind and intellect are powerful forces.When we wake up to whom we are, to the eternal being-ness out of which everything comes from and will return to, we realize that we don’t have to suffer and that we can live in the here and now.What we need to understand is that the experience of spiritual enlightenment is exclusive for every individual and must be experienced rather than explained.
