What is the purpose of life
These are my words. My truth.
I believe in a God that is loving. Maybe the word God is not the right one. For in the bush, it was said my name is “ I AM” I use the word God, because it is a common word. Not one to divide, but a word to unite. Just as a rainbow was once a word of unity, even the most beautiful of words can now be seen as division. ABBA, Elohim, YAHWEH, Universe, Spirit, Everything, Consciousness, Intuition are all the same. Maybe a better word is love. Love above all. Not just towards man, but to all of creation. We are not to kill, but to love. An eye for an eye makes us all blind. I do not rely on what is black and white. I rely on the love that speaks through me. In this love, I hear the truth. The truth that unites us all. This is my connection to everything. My oneness with source, my oneness with the bird, the tree, the air, the water, the stars.
We are the universe, and the universe is us. As the rivers flow through the earth, they flow through my veins. As Kennedy spoke “ All of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came. “ We are One. Heaven is not here nor there, it is in our midst. There is nothing but the now. This moment. This is where heaven is realized. Everything can be seen in its true nature. The mirage is no more. Light becomes known. We hear the song of the sparrow with our heart. The song of the sparrow reminds us of our song. We recognize that we all have a song within us, and it is our duty to sing that song. As we sing our song, others come to know their song, more and more come to sing, each song beautifully unique yet in perfect harmony. The whales, the dolphins, the crickets, the frogs, the bees, in unity, we all sing. This song of course is not just in melody, but in function. Our song relates to the unique gifts inside of us. Singing that song, is living our gifts. As we sing, we begin to heal from within.
As we heal from within, the world around us begins to heal. The waters, the air, the climate, eco-systems re-emerge in their intended fullness, the essence of life becomes what it was intended to be. We recognize the fight against one another is futile. We recognize that we are here to carry one another. To love. To love one another, to love everything. In this restoration, the wolf and the lamb graze together. The lion eats straw with the ox. The baby and the viper hold hands. There will be no predator or prey. Fear is no more, there is no longer separation of above to below. Heaven and Earth are one.
