WHAT IS THE REASON FOR LIFE PART1.
Life is beautiful they say and in that depth it give us a mixture of pain, sorrow, sadness, and a bit of love, happiness, lessons and above all it either deepens our conviction or causes us to question our worth.
Its in this sense that we must know that LIFE IS OUR PERCEPTION AND NOT DECEPTION.
Life is how u view it, its how u see it and understand it hence its in this light that we ask one vital question thus
WHAT IS THE REASON FOR LIVING?
Some people live for different reason
This reason can either be SELFISH OR SELFLESS depending on their veiw of things.
My mother once said that LIFE ISNT A BED OF ROSES BUT A FLOWER OF LESS TORNS.
People have gat to stop having a wrong persuasion of what life is.
I once heard someone say LIFE IS SWEET WHEN U HAVE MONEY.
Well I for one think this is ridiculous cos even the rich also cry.
Happiness is a product of the mind, its a function of your veiw of life cos its once said that AS A MAN THINKETH IN HIS HEART SO IS HE.
This therefore connotes that u don't need wealth to be happy rather money can help amplify that happiness but it can never birth it out.
A friend of mine onced asked me a question few days ago that left me stunned.
He asked FRANCIS WHAT IS THE COST OF ALL YOU PURSUE?
This question got me stunned cos I found out then that life isnt measured by the number of things u have.
In fact let me say this for free Albert Einstein once said that ONLY A LIFE LIVED FOR OTHERS IS A LIFE WORTH LIVED.
The above statement is true cos the only difference between the word SELFISHNESS AND SELFLESSNESS is the word SELF.
Only when u realize that life doesn't abound in the things u have but the number of lives u have touched by others.
For instance certain man had shaped humanity in their selflessness of whom one I respect the most is THOMAS EDISON.
My mama shared that story and one thing she said is that we celebrated him for giving us the light bulb but that's wrong cos he according to my mama is the definition of PATIENCE.
History says it took him 100 times to give us the light bulb.
That's what makes the story worth telling.
We have gat to look away from those selfish desires that we have which is built on the word SELF.
Life is more than self, it's about living for others. Its about being available for others to benefit from our success.
Life itself is beautiful but it can sometimes become ugly but its in this moment that we surround ourselves by those we love who also love us in return.
Aristotle once said that A FRIEND IS A SOUL INHABITING TWO BODIES.
We must thus learn to share in peoples mistakes, problems, sadness and not just their joy and happiness.
So when u ask me what is the reason for life? I would tell u that the reason for live is to be a blessing to others in every way possible and this begins by extending that hand of fellowship to someone, somewhere and showing them that THERE IS SOMETHING TO LIVE FOR COS LIVE IS BEAUTIFUL.
Let me end by quoting someone I respect the most Toni Adeleke Aaron and he said WHAT IS THE COST OF LIVING IF ITS ONLY FOR SELF.
So I place that question to u all. What is the cost of living if its only for self.
Remember life is your perception and not deception.
Show love to someone, somewhere cos there is more to live than self.
