I’ve been wanting to comment further on the T.F. Powys quote, “Belief is too easy a road to God.” If we replace the word “God” with “meaning,” Powys’ intent becomes clear. Much of the West avoids consideration of existential meaning by finding it in some variant of “God’s plan.” Such is their choice. For the rest of us, however, condemned forever to question rather than accept, there has to be more. This is Powys’ point. For us, exploration of meaning is obligatory, and reaching a place of personal peace is a lot of work. Just “believing” is too easy.
