17 Remember your true purpose
What is the meaning of life? What is my purpose?
These are two of the biggest questions people ask.
You are here to love, to laugh and cry,
to dance and sing, to mourn and celebrate.
You are here to share and be selfish, to struggle and suffer,
to find amazing joy and also great loss.
You are here to experience the wonders of nature,
the pleasures of treasured company,
and the tranquility of being alone with your thoughts.
You are here to be a friend, a lover, a family member.
Some will love you and some will hate.
You will feel sadness and regret.
Through all of this, you are to live life fully and give your Soul
opportunities to express its uniqueness on this Earth.
In so doing, you’ll learn that your Soul is timeless and perfect,
interconnected to all things.
Through the joys and hardships of this life,
you will be turned back to this Soul-awareness.
You will remember that all you experience on this Earth
is a path leading you back to your true Self.
Remembering your true Self:
What greater purpose or meaning could there be?
