The scriptures proceeding this verse deal with the practical situation that the prophets nation faced in his day. In words that follow, the vision soars to a lofty future. Verse 21 serves as a bridge between the two periods. No one is perfect and it is naive to expect one person to "fix·" American politics. In fact, we believe that institutional change is more likely to lead to political salvation than is changing the players. Nevertheless, we do believe that Obama' style of campaigning his work in the Senate, and his message inspire confidence and hope and are worth emulating for the sake of a healthy democracy. I think life is like that and faith is difficult in loneliness, which isn't. That's when one feels futility and meaninglessness haunting one. One doesn't need talk or theories or deep sharing so much as the under understanding presence of someone who shares one's thoughts and vision with whom one can be natural and unguarded, whose faith and goals are the same. The complex possibility of various future outcomes leaves room for effective personal agency energized by positives attitudes. I would be prayerful through each busy moment: I would be constantly in touch with God; I would be tuned to hear his slightest whisper; I would have faith to keep the path Christ trod. This bottom line is that we are all human beings who want happiness and do not not want suffering. On that basis we are trying to investigate the nature of external and internal truth. There are different kinds of philosophies and systems of teaching in human society, and Buddhism is one of them. We have so many different philosophies that one philosophy simply cannot satisfy all humankind; this is why we have so many different teachings of spiritual systems today.
