Why Am I Here?

“Everyone says love hurts, but that is not true. Loneliness hurts. Rejection hurts. Losing someone hurts. Envy hurts. Everyone gets these things confused with love, but in reality love is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again. Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt.”

– Meša Selimovic

There are many big questions in life. For me, this is one of the most important ones. I don’t need anybody or anything to give me an answer for it. Paradoxically, I think one of the reasons we’re here is to come up with these answers ourselves. We find our own reasons to be here. We’re the architects of our own lives.

So why am I here? My answer is quite simple and is also a sort of “new year’s resolution”:

I’m here to love.

I build my life for the sole purpose of expressing Love NOW; not tomorrow, not next month, but NOW. My mind is the antenna that picks up the Love that surrounds me, and my soul is the sun that shines it through my body. I do not keep this Love hostage in myself. I beam it across the Universe and bestow it on family, teachers, friends, those who like me AND those who don’t. I love Man, Animal, Plant, Stone and Star, for Love is the almighty, transcending force that brings meaning to our existence. And because the NOW has become an eternal monument to Love, I AM HAPPY, for my life now truly lives.

      I think it’s up to everybody to find the way they wish to express this :). Personally, I start with the small things (greet people with a smile and respect, what I call the “namaste attitude”) and work my way up. Gifting my time and interest towards those that surround me I believe is how I give back to Life.
