*Justify Your Existence!* was the large decal message on the big, black, sooped-up SUV in front of me yesterday, as I was on my way to work.
I briefly pondered the intention behind this message. Maybe it was the dark appeal of the vehicle itself that swayed my thinking, but I assumed the slogan stemmed from a racist, discriminatory ideology.
Then I pondered the impossibility for anyone to truly justify their existence.
I mean, we can’t get away with it by saying I need to exist Because I’m a good person or Because it’s my right or Because I’m a mother or Because the work I do is important … can we?
And then, I realized that one way to answer *Justify Your Existence!* would be to reply: Sure, no problem. My purpose on this earth, in this lifetime, is to amend the karma that is mine to amend – the one that’s encoded in my energy field, the one that’s been passed on to me by all of my soul’s previous incarnations – as well as the karma that I have created for myself through my words, thoughts and actions.
Serious question: is there any other way to Justify Our Existence in *this* lifetime than by listening for our soul’s whisper to indulge less of our dreams and fulfil more of our Destiny?
I mean, that’s once we have figured out who we really are.
Having just said that, another question demanding a hard answer is Who are you?
Who are we, really?
We can’t get away with simply stating our name, as our name is only a name, a label of sorts.
We can’t get away with it either by adding our nationality because that refers only to the place we were born. Even if we grew up there, this location has, at best, only given us some of our traits and some of our habits. Neither explains WHO we, personally, ARE.
So, we could add facts regarding our ancestral lineage, the level of our education, the area of our expertise and our social status, as well as bits of information about what makes us tick but – serious question: would the sum of this information, even if we throw in our age and our zodiac sign, accurately answer the question Who are you?
I believe it would not.
I believe that all these combined facts only amount to facts; the facts that create our persona, the facts that indulge the low end of our ego, the facts that only add to our preferences such as the car we drive, the type of house we live in, the brands we prefer and the jewellery we like to display on our person.
So you might ask What then is the correct answer to Who are you?
Personally, I believe that the correct answer is I am a soul disguised in a *body suit*.
Lol! I know how weird that sounds and I am not suggesting, not for a second, that you should reply that willy-nilly to the next person who should ask
But … is there any other truthful way to reply to that question?
Talk back to me on this. I’d love to hear your views.
