There Is Nothing New Under The Sun

I’m going to do here what every writer does when they can’t write or finish a piece – I’m going to Share what I’ve been reading. At least I give you nothing but the best people! This is wise old Ecclesiates, and my reason for Sharing is quite simple, even if you’re not a Christian this is sound advice for life. People constantly ask about the meaning of life, about the secrets of existence but all you really have to do is read this and other memorable parts of the Bible and the meaning becomes more clear, even if it’s just a bit. Take a chance and read it then tell me I never do anything for you!

This is about constancy, that no nasty surprises are going to happen in the future. The universe may be constantly active but life will remain the same no matter how advanced we think we’re becoming nothing new will come about. Take a look at ancient civilisations for example, most of them were as advanced as we are today. The Romans, Greeks, Spartans, read the Iliad and the Odyssey by Homer (A Masterpiece) and you’ll discover that they all had the same knowledge as us.

 “There Is Nothing New Under The Sun”

 Ecclesiastes  1:4-11

A generation goes, and a generation comes,
but the earth remains forever.

The sun rises, and the sun goes down,
and hastens to the place where it rises.

The wind blows to the south
and goes around to the north;
around and around goes the wind,
and on its circuits the wind returns.

All streams run to the sea,
but the sea is not full;
to the place where the streams flow,
there they flow again.

All things are full of weariness;
a man cannot utter it;
the eye is not satisfied with seeing,
nor the ear filled with hearing.

What has been is what will be,
and what has been done is what will be done,
and there is nothing new under the sun.

Is there a thing of which it is said,
“See, this is new”?
It has been already
in the ages before us.

There is no remembrance of former things,
nor will there be any remembrance
of later things yet to be among those who come after.
