Why is so important to know where we come from? Why do millions of people go on sites like ancestry.com to find their beginnings? Why do adopted children eventually yearn for information about their biologically parents?
We want to find our origins. Finding our origin gives us a starting point where we can judge and evaluate events in our lives. It is like having a location to set our compass. It helps us find direction in our lives.
In the Tip of the Writing Brush, Finding the “Origin” is a common theme throughout the sacred book. More important, the cause or purpose of the origin of mankind is the ultimate truth. Mankind was created by God to live the joyous life with everyone helping each other. This is the purpose of the origin of mankind.
Without knowing this origin, or the purpose why mankind was created, it would be difficult to lead an unselfish life. But knowing this origin, it gives us a compass or direction in helping each other attain this joyous world.
