The great tragedy in life is the death of the human spirit.
That divine spark that you have inside you that brings with it the fullness of everything life has to offer.
The thing that raises you up when you’re down
Strengthens you when you’re weak
Shines a light on your darkness
And keeps you connected and engaged in something beyond yourself.
So many of us put so much emphasis on staying alive, as if life is merely a material pursuit.
Your heart may still be beating, but that doesn’t mean you’re actually living.
The death of the spirit brings with it bitterness and resentment
A warped sense of reality
A distortion and rejection of our very human nature
Often for the pursuit of personal pleasure at the expense of others or even ourselves -
but ultimately it’s the absence of Love.
