Five Things That Could Be Central To What Your Life Is About As Opposed To All The Huge And Earth-Shattering Things We Are Told It Should Be:

1. Being a soul friend.
When you connect with another person and become completely open and trusting with that individual, your two souls begin to flow together. Being a soul friend is accepting another as they truly are, holding them in beauty and light. With a soul friend, you are understood as you are, without mask or pretension. This recognition and acceptance provides a space for others to discover and express their real self. There are few things more significant than being a soul friend, cultivating these kinds of relationships, being a space of acceptance and recognition for others, and holding up a mirror for people to see their light.

2. Participating in the awakening of your children.
Could it be that one of your most significant contributions to this world will be your attentiveness and mindfulness to awakening your children to the reality and beauty of who they are, and helping them learn to operate within in and express it?

3. Being a companion and caregiver to animals.
Have you ever considered that the cat or dog that showed up on your doorstep, or the one you took in, or adopted from an animal shelter, and the care and love you give them, is an extraordinary reason for being here?

4. Breaking the silence.
A lot of suffering happens in the world because people are silent. Maybe you are here because you were meant to speak. What if courageously speaking the truth, being a voice for people who have no voice, not keeping quiet and turning a blind eye to injustice, giving expression to something people are missing is central to who you are in this world?

5. Adding beauty.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote, “The world will be saved by beauty.” And maybe you were meant to bring that salvation by contributing beauty in some form of your own. What if offering the beauty that you naturally create as an artist, musician, photographer, gardener, tattoo artist, writer, etc. is what you were meant to be and do in this world?

    One of your better, more eloquent pieces (and you have a lot of really good ones). Very well said.

    This hit home. I feed a colony of feral cats that gather around my door. A few years ago, one of the kittens, a marmalade tabby, started following me around when I took our dogs out for a walk. He was a persistent fellow and even sneaked into the house a couple of times. One of my favorite cats (who actually belonged to a young woman who could not care for her) was killed by some dogs whose caregivers were not caring for them. I cried for two weeks. Then my husband said that we’d better bring that little marmalade fellow inside. I can’t begin to tell you about the joy and love that he has brought to us.
