THE REASON FOR LIVING

By Al Garcia

The reason for living -- to love and to be loved, if for one brief moment or a lifetime.  To experience the emotion and the passion of the human soul.  To keep the flame alive that lights and warms the vastness and the darkness beyond the stars.

We are the seed of hope, born in a manger one cold star-lit night many lifetimes ago.  Imperfect and flawed.  In search of what lies beyond the stars and beyond tomorrow.  Fragile and weak in many ways, but strong, resilient and courageous in spirit and resolve.

But in the end, to give of your heart and soul, or to feel fulfilled by those who share your dreams, is to have found the reason for living – your reason for living -- the treasure of the ages – love.

Our imperfections and flaws, like hate, bigotry, deceit, arrogance, power and envy – all wither and die in broken and defective hearts.  While love, dusted with dreams and hopes -- like diamonds and jewels that sparkle in the light, is what forever twinkles and glimmers in the richness and vastness of time.
