Passing by Oneself

“Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars,and they pass by themselves without wondering.”

Saint Augustine

In our own day it appears that people just go with the flow of things in a culturally manner, trapped by the movements and situations of the day.  Frequently I believe people don’t stop to consider what this life is all about, they go past themselves.
