Our Lives Need Purpose

MOST PEOPLE LIVE IN FEAR whether they realize it or not. They fear rejection and loss, and, more than anything, they fear death. That primary fear of our own mortality affects us all. But we only begin to really live after we accept the reality of death.

But the Infinite One didn’t create us to exist in chronic fear. That’s not the way we’re meant to live.

Mortality isn’t a punishment — it’s a gift that prods us into remembering that our lives need to have purpose.
