A Million Miles in a Thousand Years

A Million Miles in a Thousand Years - What I Learned While Editing My Life

The author mentions an art student who devoted nearly a year of his life to work on his senior thesis. In an attempt to understand whether our physical bodies said something about our philosophical reality, the art student studied human beings as they physically mature. He concluded

".... humans are alive for the purpose of journey, ... He didn't know what the point of the journey was, but he did believe we were designed to search for and find something. And he wondered out loud if the point wasn't the search but the transformation the search creates."

I just found that to be thought provoking. In thinking about it, two verses came to mind:

and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding,
and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure,
then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God.

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
