There are seven things I know to be truly profound, things which can lift nothingness and make one feel as though reality does exist:

i.  Look down, then up, then at the horizon.  To appreciate the sky, one must look down first at the earth:  the soil, the plants, one's shoes.  This makes you know you're actually there.  By looking upward, the brilliant blue will be more striking after compared to the greens and browns.  The seemingly ever-growing height of the blue dome will make you realize your size is actually small, and that no one is big enough to be God.  Then, I ask you to level your eyes at the horizon in front of you; you and nature, you and miracles, face-to-face.  In the plains, you can see miles--on a cliff, across the ocean.  You'll realize that the road ahead is worth anything.  [Don't worry about illusions.  They're half the fun.]

ii.  Cold has a taste.  It's sweet, sometimes unbearably so.  Drink ice water, feel it go down your throat, and tell me it's not there.  But, be quick!  It's barely there to be noticed.  This makes eating snow, drinking water, and hell even old-fashioned ice cream more worth while.  Cold does have a taste, ladies and gentlemen.

iii.  Animals are more than alive.  They can be heroes, even to a small child crying.  They can feel pain, joy, and sense your emotions.  Treat them very well for they deserve breath more than we do.

iv.  War will happen.  It may not be right, and it's often not truly justified, but it may happen.  All we can do is try to pick up the pieces of the world after.  

v.  Religion isn't the only answer. One can be spiritual without being religious.  Meditation holds just as much relief and safety as prayer. Allow someone the chance to grow and realize that their parents aren't always right, that sometimes hate has a disguise in love.  Let people find their own paths.  Don't become absolutely corrupted by measly power; for even a Pope is not immortal and barely holds his throne.  That being said, never trust a preacher named Randall whom you see on an billboard.

vi.  Trees have lungs, too.  Have you ever looked at a tree, I mean really looked at it?  The branches are like those inside your lungs.  What they "breathe" in might be different, but there's still an exchanging of tit-for-tat.  What we receive they give, and what we gift wrap they open.

vii.  A baby's laugh can banish sadness.  One of the hidden universal truths.

I know I'm wrong and that there are others galore, but I shall leave you with just this one more:

viii.  Whether God exists, or anything at all, or whether we are alone in space or we are not...  We are here.
This is why I write.

This makes me even more grateful for all kinds of things. I think I forget to be grateful sometimes.
Thank you for this, Noah.
Also, I'm glad you feel you've found the reason you write. I think it's a good reason.
Keep up the marvelous work, as always. ^^
