You continually focus on living comfortably, preoccupied with your daily routines in life because they give the sensation of fullness and sometimes even joy.
You have been doing this for too many years.
In so doing you regularly forget to focus on the “what” you are LIVING for.
Worldly possessions and status are not WHAT anyone should be living for. Just because you live in the world doesn’t mean worldliness is why you exist. It’s quite the contrary dear human.
It has been said that, “*now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now we know in part, but then we will know fully just as we also have been fully known … faith, hope and love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
Dwell on love.
I know that you are capable of loving. You are a sentient being and love is actually spiritual and intangible, just like your essence. Love is one of the most powerful forces on Earth … if not in the entire universe.
I don’t know all the reasons why you are here; but I know it’s important that you ARE.
As scary as it is, it allows you the opportunity to work yourselves forward into life’s deeper meaning.
In love it’s terrifying to let someone in, knowing they will see all your flaws and scars and may want to leave.
Let them in anyway.
Alfred Lord Tennyson said, “it is better to have loved and lost than to not have loved at all.”
I say even when we love and lose, we know in our heart that our love has served a purpose.
Regarding 9/11: “My instinct was to tell her just one more thing, but I had to pause for a second before I did. Her name, followed by the words, “I love you,” found its way out of my mouth. She said it back and then hung up. For some reason, it wasn’t easy to say. It was so utterly revealing. I felt naked saying it. Even in that moment I was worried about how she was going to receive those three words. But I knew I had to say it so I did.
