Love

I know the meaning of life.

Did you hear me?

I know the meaning of life.

The question that everyone eventually asks but never really have an answer for now has an answer.

And the answer is love.

It is perhaps the most important and most widely preached topic. Love is what everyone is looking for but unable to find. The meaning of life is love yet so many people look elsewhere to try to answer that question.

Love and grace are the hardest things to convey and the hardest thing to accept. Not until we learn to live our lives the way Jesus lived his (in unwavering love) we will never undergo the kind of transformation we desire in ourselves to make ourselves happy.

Unfortunately, it is impossible.

But it’s not impossible to try our damnedest to be like Jesus.

When was the last time you smiled at that homeless guy who smells like tuna? When was the last time you forgave someone for a menial problem you had with them? When was the last time you dispensed a hug to someone who really needed it? When was the last time you told your parents, despite your horrible childhood, that you loved them? When was the last time you looked past someone’s face tattoo to really try to get to know them?

What did you feel? Did it feel good to do that?

That is the heart of Jesus. That is your soul guiding you. That is love.

We are spiritual beings having a human experience. We have within us the ability to love the way Jesus loved but our human existence inhibit us from fully loving the way we should. Get in touch with your soul… it knows how to love beyond ways you even knew possible.

I know that I sound like a hippie. I know that I sound like some Beatles song. I know I sound like one of those monks who sits on top of Mount Everest praying for answers from God but it doesn’t matter… I know what the meaning of life is.

And now you do too.
