love and heretics

It's better to light a candle than curse the darkness

answering my own question…what is my purpose in life?

Now, that i no longer believe, and or /worry about the eternal..I am more focused on the here and now.
Every breath,
every moment,
is full of meaning.
Every smile,
every sunset…
every tear…
every fear…

Every scrape on my son’s knee…(and there can be quite a few of those )

My purpose on this planet, is to live whilst i have breath within me.
To be useful, help others, to be a good wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend, employee, musician, a productive citizen, to alleviate injustice and suffering wherever it is within my power to do so, lend a hand to whoever has less than i, (of anything) that i am able to do so, to learn all that i can, and act upon the new knowledge. To be a part of making our world a better brighter place…to be a small ripple of kindness in the ocean of humanity.

Each smallest act of kindness reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it’s passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away. Likewise, each small meanness, each expression of hatred, each act of evil.~ H.R.White

and why?
because it makes sense….to me

So is this an objective purpose?
The choice was mine, how then should i, shall i…live?
Is it subjective because we get to choose?

  1. I’d say its objective in the here and now.

    • I like that John. 🙂

  2. Subjective meaning is all that exists. When you listen to anyone else and adopt their version of purpose intact and without questioning, it is not purpose, and you do not get meaning. There is vast difference between having meaning and obeying orders.

    Good post

  3. Whether objective or subjective, I like it as is
