I See... The Meaning of Everything

Have you ever wondered what everything means?  The Mormon Third Eye specializes in answering really deep, important, ponderous questions such as this one.  Ironically, this question was answered by the Lord himself at the very beginning of mortal time as we know it, just as Adam was chased out of the  Garden of Eden into the lone and dreary world- we have just failed to comprehend and accept it. 

Check out Moses Chapter 6 in The Pearl of Great Price. Starting at about verse 51 Enoch narrates an early encounter Adam had with the Lord. The Lord teaches him about the whole plan of salvation, including the atonement, baptism, and the need to teach these things unto their children.  By verse 63 the plan of salvation is summarized into the meaning of everything:

“And behold, all things have their likeness, and all things are created and made to bear record of me, both things which are temporal, and things which are spiritual; things which are in the heavens above, and things which are on the earth, and things which are in the earth, and things which are under the earth, both above and beneath: all things bear record of me.”

The Mormon Third Eye, as in all scripture, interprets this literally- “all things bear record of me.”  So, the next time your mind wanders into the more spiritual side of life, and you are tempted to think deeper than usual, pause for a moment and take a look at a tree, a flower or a sunrise (things that are created); or maybe something as innocuous as a chair, a large screen television, or a fireplace (things that are made). Somehow, some way, they all bear record of our Heavenly Father and his great love for us. That is the meaning of everything.
