What Life Is Essay, Research Paper
Life is very funny. Many people think of it as a game that must be played to the end or some may think of it as a journey in search of something. I?m one of those that think of it as?. neither. I think of it as a gift. This gift that God has bestowed upon us. This gift in which WE have total control. We control where we go, what we do, whom we talk to, and what we feel. The one flaw in this gift is that others and ourselves can turn this gift, ???into a punishment.
God gave us this gift for a reason. A reason which some of us must all find out ourselves. Is it to gain something, to feel something, or to just live? We all NEED something. Buddhists believe in reaching a stage in our lives called nirvana, the state at which a soul desires nothing. To me, it is impossible to not want ONE thing, throughout your life. Things that we want do not have to be material objects such as money, clothing, or anything like that. Certain souls want or need one thing. When souls never receive this ONE thing, they are destroyed and go throughout their lives feeling punished and lifeless. Why would God give us this gift if he knew that we would get this feeling? So that we could feel so punished? I myself don?t know the answer to this mystery. I know one thing though. I know that everyone NEEDS this one thing to have a complete life. This one thing is love.
Love, an emotion that cannot be defined by any dictionary or human being. Few even know what this emotion means or how it feels. This emotion has its many weaknesses. I often wish God didn?t make it so. Sometimes those who give out love often don?t receive that love back, which makes one feel, well, distraught. Especially if that one soul NEEDS that love back from another. It may be a family member, a friend, or a soul, which you feel, spiritually connected to. Everyone needs love. Without it, there is no point in life. What will your ultimate goal in life be? To gain riches? To become powerful? No, God didn?t put us here for that. When we die riches and power wont matter. I think God must have felt something, somehow, somewhere, and felt like sharing it with us. This is where this gift came in.
Somehow, God felt love and wanted to share it with more people. I think this may have been his reason for creating life. Love is horrible when it isn?t shared, but when it is, love becomes beautiful. It becomes something that makes all souls want to live longer and spread what they have felt. I believe that souls that share this emotion together unite as one. I believe that is one of our goals in life. God gave us this gift of life, to receive and give love. This way, two souls will unite as one and God will know that we have shared this emotion together. These are just my feelings on life. I bet few share these same feelings, very few. Definitions of love are various, but there is no definition. Just a feeling.
???.just a feeling.
