“Reason For Being” (poem / poetry)

Is the only reason we exist, to survive?

Of course not, it’s to fill the World with our light,

To finally understand what matters most,

Find the beauty in others, and hold it close.

Be an inspiration to the souls you embrace,

Relieve the suffering of your neighbours, with haste,

Use your gifts in a way that’s both kind and logical,

Be a shining example of the love that is possible.

Many of us go through most (if not all) of our lives unsure of our purpose, our raison d’etre, our reason for being. We often find temporary distractions, such as striving for fame and fortune, and adding to other menial tallies of achievement, thus we usually miss the point of it all!

Life is meant to be enjoyed, but that enjoyment and happiness is also meant to be shared, invested in others, so that eventually, the masses are uplifted and elevated. We can’t take material items with us when it’s our time to transition, only the connections, information and love we’ve created.

So, the question remains, will you make your brief pit stop on this planet worthwhile? It simply starts with you creating and nurturing a loving and compassionate heart within yourself, which in turn nourishes your soul, and the souls of those that you share your warmth and blessings with.

As we journey on, to dimensions and possibilities anew, the love and wonderful energy we’ve given birth to, will fuel us wherever we choose to explore next (or return to), when our time comes, all it requires first, is our conscious decision to be thoughtful and caring.

So, what are you waiting for!?! Refuel your soul, my friends!

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Carefully bolted tight, greased and covered,

Our love is secure, not flaunted or smothered,

It’s not in a pageant, nor seeking a prize,

The title “World’s Greatest”, is felt, not implied.
