The Purpose of Life is Life


As the world shuts down, one must wonder


What is the purpose of life?


Is it merely to stay alive, or is it to live?


How much are you willing to give up in order to keep your heart beating and your lungs breathing.


What is there to live for, if everything is taken away?


If your spirit is crushed


All consumed by fear and hysteria.


Fear, is the great enemy


And it’s the fear of death more precisely that we’re all enslaved to.


But perhaps it’s not all the fear death; perhaps it’s also the fear of Life.


Let’s be clear, there is no life, without some element of risk.


Without courage,


Without personal responsibility


It’s easy to hide away in the shadows and slowly whither away, deluding yourself into safety.


Outsourcing your wellbeing to others


But it’s difficult to stand up and be counted


To exhibit the spirit of fearlessness in the eye of the storm


To put your self out into the public square to be shamed and ridiculed by the mob


To speak what’s in your heart


And put yourself in harms way to salvage some semblance of life


To believe in something greater than man made tribulations


And put your faith in something eternal


In the magic of creation and in the power of each individual to do it’s will.


This is not a cry out for recklessness


But rather for the preservation of truth and faith in times of hardship


For a return to the natural order inscribed by the Logos (in the Greek) and the Dao (in the Chinese)


Because this is forever embedded within you and this is what life is.


So heed it’s call.


It’s given you the gift of reason and an ability to rationalise the world in a way only humans can - so use it.


Don’t allow fear to take that away -


Don’t allow yourself to be ruled by uncertainty and your sense of insecurity


Don’t go looking for certainty either,


Because certainty is only found in those things that are eternal and forever enduring


Anything less will cripple you in more ways than you can ever imagine.


Surrendering the sovereignty of your soul to media hysteria


To government shut downs


And the will of man,


Dictated to you by the earthly, man-made powers that govern you


You are so much more than that.


The world is so much bigger than that


The universe is so much bigger than that


Creation is so much bigger than that


And even though you can certainly abandon it, it never abandons you.


So be human, always choose Life, even with all its challenges and pitfalls,


Anything less will always be a travesty.
