Life comes first.
We are not here by chance. We are here by an expression of a very deep drive of life, a very deep spiritual purpose. And if we look at our deepest ideals and hopes in our heart what do we find? To create beauty , to share love . And here we find the drives of why we are here. If any one of these things are missing our life is not complete.
We have to consciously disconnect that we are here by chance and connect with the purpose as a species, as an entire planetary life family. And underneath all the species of plants and animals is the life of Mother Earth whom we are all children. Our Mother nourishes us our body which is made of her substance her Earth. Our life energy is her energy, our thoughts even our creative expressions are hers, our hopes and dreams. We are all one family, her children. This recognition of the underlying unity of life gives the sense of fulfillment..
