Human Existence Is About More Than Just Staying Alive
“Here is a test to find out whether your mission on earth is finished: If you’re alive, it isn’t.”
~ Richard Bach
If you were to die today would you feel complete? Have you accomplished what you came here to do–or is there a piece (peace) missing? Many of us have taken an extended cruise down the river of denial, pretending that we’ll always have tomorrow to get around to it–whatever “it” may be. The slogan for Procrastinators Anonymous could be, “Why do today what can be put off till tomorrow!”
While instant gratification is the ego’s mantra, it is not the call of the soul; it knows only how to “be” in the present moment because that is where its mission is actualized. The takeaway is, living things that don’t actualize their purpose lose their Life-force and slowly die.
If you are alive it is because your mission isn’t completed. Want proof? Place your hand on your beating heart. That is the Universe telling you there is something more for you to do and be TODAY. Life is seeking an outlet for creative expression through you. Open to it; feel it–honor it–be it…and then, as they say in the Nike ads, “Just do it.”
