This philosophical question has been around since the beginning of mankind. Well, I am happy to announce that after my 40 plus years, I have finally figured out the answer.
Think about it, what do we crave? What makes us happy and content WITH it, yet, sad and lonely without it? What makes us dance on air, and act like we are 15 again? If you answered LOVE, then you are right.
Funny isn’t it, such a complex question, yet such a simplistic answer. We were placed here on this Earth to love. Love ourselves, love others, and to show our love for our fellow man.
No, I’m not a preacher; I am just a simple woman who has discovered a truth that can indeed change the world. Without love we are NOTHING, with love, we are everything.
I must admit, I thought I had it all with a high powered job, money to burn, and all of the expensive toys money could buy. What I never had however, was true love. I was lonely in my heart even though I possessed all of life’s material things.
It wasn’t until I acquired LOVE that my life became complete and really happy. Love IS LIFE, love is compassionate, love is forgiving, kind, and gives us the strength to carry on when needed.
Whether you are materially rich or poor matters not, LOVE knows no boundaries, has no limits, and is not selfish to the body’s needs. With love, we are one with the universe, one with whichever God you may believe in, and at peace within our souls.
Find love within your hearts, share that love with others, and with each person we meet. Remember, according to St. Paul in Corinthians 13:13, “There are three things that last, Faith, Hope, and Love, and the greatest of these is love.”
I share my love with each of you, and I pray you also do the same with others.
