A man who has not passed through the inferno of his passions has never overcome them. As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being. Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
The purpose of our life needs to be positive. We weren't born with the purpose of causing trouble, harming others. For our life to be of value, I think we must develop basic good human qualities—warmth, kindness, compassion. Then our life becomes meaningful and more peaceful—happier.
The soul is very clear that its purpose is evolution...it is not concerned with the achievements of the body or the development of the mind. These are all meaningless to the soul. The soul is also very clear that there is no great tragedy involved in leaving the body. In many ways the tragedy is being in the body.
Do not waste the precious moments of this, your present reality, seeking to unveil all of life’s secrets. Those secrets are secret for a reason. Grant your God the benefit of the doubt. Use your Now Moment for the Highest Purpose—the creation and the expression of Who You Really Are. Decide Who You Are—Who you want to be—and then do everything in your power to be that.
Compassion is the understanding of suffering. There is no peace, joy, or hope until those who suffer are understood. Compassion is the soul of these words; without it, they are empty. Compassion fills them with truth, honor, and purpose.
