What Does It Mean to 'Look Up'?

If you are truly "in" this Christianity, you will arrive at the point when looking around will no longer satisfy, or even intrigue, you.

The words of Solomon will echo in your mind: "Vanity of vanities, all is vanity" as everything on the earth into which you have poured your time and energy seeks another devotee, having extracted all it can from you while offering little, if anything, in return.

It is my conclusion that people do not 'Look Up' out of choice, but out of compulsion.  President Lincoln was known to have said, "I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day." Similarly, I believe everyone will be compelled to look to the heavens at some point in their existence, not so much because they wish to go there, but rather because what they can see around them will no longer supply their needs.

The only real question, for everyone, is, "When will you 'Look Up', having established that there is nothing here left to see?"
