heart and sound frontLast night a  friend in his seventies, trying to cope with the troubles and the passing of too many close friends, asked me “What is the meaning of all this? I am not sure I see the point of life.” 

As we get older and many family and friends are becoming ill and eventually passing into eternal life, it becomes hard to accept and it becomes easy to question the meaning of life.

I turned to my friend and said “We are here to enjoy each day as much as possible, and we have a whole world to try to save, so we better get busy.”  At this point in life, we need to be doing things that help others.  We must do this for ourselves. While it may look like we are helping others, it is really ourselves that we are helping.  As we grow older it is time for us to understand that WE ARE ALL ONE.  As we help others, we merge with THE ONE.

Of course the complications of our own lives keep us busy, but there is always some time that can be used to help others in the family, community and world.

This morning I picked up a little book of inspiration by Sri Aurobindo, one of the founders of the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry, India.  I asked the Divine to take me to a quote that would have meaning for me this morning, and here is the quote that appeared to me as I opened this small book:

“The soul- a spark of the Divine; to grow in flame towards the Divine in its true life and its very reason for existence.”

As I read these words, what comes to me is that the reason for existence, is to find the spark of the Divine within.  The question that was brought up the evening before, was answered.  As we open ourselves to the light of Divine

Consciousness, we find our true selves. We are able to cope with life, help ourselves, help others, and evolve in our consciousness, so that when the day comes when it is time to make a transition to eternal life, we are prepared.
