I have thought for a long time about the meaning of life. The age old question… why are we here?… has echoed in my mind for most of my life. I know I am not alone in this search for answers. It is a part of the human condition to question why it is we exist and what our purpose for living really is. And we are lucky that we live in a time and environment that allows us to ask such questions and even attempt to answer them. We are even luckier that most of the social circles, connections, and interactions we have are on an evolved and consciously elevated level compared to previous generations throughout time. Of course, there are still many people and parts of the world that are in the dark and have not evolved to the higher level of consciousness… and that is sad, but we should still love them all the same.
Which brings me to a recent revelation I had, a lifelong lesson I have studied and witnessed through my mother’s constant example. A realization that was so moving and life-changing, while at the same time so simple. Truly simple at its core. Love. That is it. Love. The reason we are here and experiencing life is Love. All aspects of Love. From the Love a person can experience for a beautiful sunset to the Love of the person of your dreams… and even more profound, the Love one should have for themselves. I’m talking about all kinds of Love, every level of it there is and every form it can take. I’m talking about the Universal Heart Connection we all share. The Universal Love Frequency we all have access to. This Devine Source of energy that ties us all together, that gives life purpose, is Love.
My childhood, my family life, my parents love story, my mothers unconditional love for every human she has ever met, my personal struggles, my fathers acceptance of my sexuality, the men I have loved then lost, the men that have loved then lost me, my dear best friends, and my experiences these past few weeks…. everything has all led to this deeper understanding of the Universal Question. Why am I here? What is the meaning of life?
I know I am not the first to discover this and I won’t be the last. Thank God! But Love is the meaning of life!
Giving Love unconditionally. Not expecting anything in return for your Love, and not taking it away out of spite, anger, pain, or fear.
Allowing others to give and show you Love. From a stranger that smiles at you, to the person that chooses to spend the rest of their life with you, we must allow ourselves to receive all forms of Love. We deserve to be Loved. Often I find it is easier to give Love, receiving Love can be much harder, but please let yourself be Loved.
Most of all, the most important form of Love, we must have is Self Love. Self Love is the seed that blooms and blossoms into all other forms of Love. I don’t mean ego or vanity. What I am talking about is an ideal that most never achieve. I still struggle with it. It’s about having an appreciation for your true self, accepting who you are in all forms good or bad, and striving to be the best version of yourself at each moment. Forgiveness and growth are key to having Self Love. Knowing that you are good enough, but not better than anyone else is also important in the circle of Love.
My goal is to give Love to everyone I meet, to receive Love from anyone who sends it out, and to live in an open Evolved Universal Love Connection with all people.
