What On Earth am I Doing?

I accept that my life is a very precious gift, for which I shall be eternally grateful. I am even more grateful my life has taught me so many useful lessons about living. Enjoying my living takes some of the mystery out of why I am here on this Earth. The inexplicable reason for my being on this earth has always driven me to search.

While I may have found many words written on how I must live my life on this Earth; there have been less by far of why I am on the Earth. The same source that quotes words on why I am on earth does not give me a definitive answer on going about that process.

Wisdom has now revealed to me that it is not life’s meaning that is so important, but rather the living of my life each day, knowing whoever has the reason for me being on Earth, is content not to define this reason in precise terms.

Yet there are many expressions like, …”do not fear… Be not anxious…the birds of the air… the lilies of the field…” and many others. Why don’t I follow the wise words and cut the stress? In which case, why raise the question of, ‘why?’

As a result, I now love living.

Weekly Words of Wisdom

On Laws and Rules:

I have often felt that so many messages posted on media attempt to set rules for my life.

Nearly all of my life there have been those who have set down rules for me; parents, teachers, employers, religion, just to name a few. Now here are folks on media doing the same thing!

I submitted to the slavery of following rules until one day, I discovered that I’m free to make up my own mind on anything at all. I don’t need rules to do that for me.

Now nobody sets the rules for my life but I and I design my own life.

I found out that inside of me there is a moral assessor and if I listen carefully to the assessor’s voice I can discern which rule is morally beneficial and which is not, yippee!

Aaah, I know what you thinking…. What about the law, is that not a rule?

You might be surprised to know there is a difference between laws and rules.

Laws are ratified in parliament or senate, rules arise from tradition and customs in our society.

If being a member of an organization requires me to follow their rules and it suits me to belong to that organization, I follow their rules, otherwise, I don’t join them.

Oh the sweet fragrance of freedom to decide.
