The Purpose of Faith or The Case for Matter Mattering


Back and forth it went on Facebook. The eternal debate between the spiritual and the science-based beings about the origin and organizational hierarchy of our matter.

The spiritual being’s video saying it didn’t matter what hierarchy or composition we formed as beings, all matter was of an intelligent and, therefore, a singular universal design and Creator; that all matter within this universe never varies by amount. It stays the same but is expressed and changes constantly in form by Divine oversight. So there.

The science-based beings commenting on why they’re atheists in this incarnation because it doesn’t make sense to believe in the mythology of the Bible, and that their proof is in this very same indisputable fact: that the amount of matter in the universe stays the same no matter what. They just remain unconvinced it’s due to a higher consciousness at work, and need scientific proof to believe otherwise. A “So there” back atcha!


Speaking in terms of universal intelligence, some of us have the sense to know that we are at the lower end of its food chain, so to speak. We can conjecture, extrapolate, dispute and pontificate to infinity – or until we change form (whichever comes first) – and many of us will still have missed the point of being here at all.

How your matter exists is not nearly as important as how you live your matter. Making your matter matter. Being the matter that matters. Because nothing else matters.

Whether or not you have the wisdom to acknowledge an infinite intelligence far beyond our own who’s created and authored this universe and its governing principles, or you’re convinced by the faith you were taught that not all beings matter equally and are therefore inclined to dismiss with a prayer those lesser ones, our earthly assignment remains the same: to be intelligent matter – regardless of individual beliefs. Adding love, kindness and regard for all other species to our mission’s checklist couldn’t hurt.

You’re taking up the space so make the most of your having been here. Believe in – because science now proves it – all matter endlessly matters, regardless of species. And don’t discount faith because it has led us to discover new realities beyond where science might have chosen to call it a day (i.e. the New World, etc.).

Good, bad or undecided, we are all a part of the composition of this universe. As much as possible, we should all aspire to live our matter as intelligently – and kindly – as possible. This may mean staying steadfast within yourself while allowing others’ matter to align differently, even in your presence, while attempting to disavow your matter mattering, or you theirs.

No matter what, remember that we all matter. It’s a universal reality shared in common regardless of belief.

So be the matter that matters because, from the looks of the matter, some kind of serious recycling must be going on! Make that ongoing!
