our true purpose I consider is this: to live/occupy this place in time with perfect wakefulness. how so? to find whatever is good, whatever is beautiful to report, whatever is of pure love, and tie these gifts to our every thought and act. we start this by applying such gifts to the first beauty we encounter up-close and in private ... Our Self. when you start in the right place, you actually kiss the face of the Creator/Universe who in the symmetry of Great Love ,,, put-on YOU, and bloomed forth your frame. yes, your soul/eternal self is made of Love and so is the moon, sun, planet, stars, and so on. all these are self-expressions of the Universe's self love. this is why your self love can not be ignored. fail at rightly loving yourself is kicking against the heavens. you and the heavens are the same until you work against love. moving, living and having your existence in the center of love is the only key that is real. you then are to do your best to Rest In Peace, while you yet LIVE, so that when Love slips off your frame, what you'll find in death is nothing but Eternal Life, because you simple continue on in what you experienced in your living. what's that? being completely aware of the universal Love that YOU are, in any and every form you're expressed in. the joy is to find in life what most people only find when they die, or have a near death experience.
next time you look up into the sky and see stars, or look into the water and see an angel fish, or a wild flower on the side of the road, ... anything that is of good report, everything that's lovely, is YOU. think on these things.
remember if it's not love then it's not YOU. so if you're acting out of sorts, you are not being your true self. your true self is... whole. whole peace, whole love, whole. let the heaven's be your mirror and consider your true beauty and greatness.
