work hard and love

and you will become the hawk that soars the sky

gliding with ease

untouchable to those that will never strive to reach your height

 

purposeful living – g.c.

Purpose

i surrender to the day.

i wake up to white walls,

and decide how i will color my mood.

i am fatigued.

i know i don’t have to be.

i can get up, energize myself,

but everyday i consider doing nothing.

i could just lay for hours never truly waking,

but there is a hunger inside of me,

a knowing,

that once I make it passed tired thoughts I am bound to experience something.

something,

that will assure me that it is worth the push to be awake.

the experiences start with something as simple as the sun illuminating my room.

although the shades are down, reflections dance around.

i can not see the sky beyond the windows,

but i feel the movement of the clouds.

the warm sunlight fades to a cool payne’s grey,

then quickly shifts back to the warm hues ablaze,

golden yellow.

i feel like i am floating.

i am reminded of change.

i am reminded of freedom.

it is worth it to be awake.

i am then reminded of love, as i look into the deep wide eyes of my dogs.

i am flashed a dopey smile and greeted with kisses,

i see my soul reflected back to me.

i am connected to everything.

it is worth it to be awake.

next,

it is the joy and laughter that fill the kitchen as my brother hops around goofily dancing,

entertained by,

and completely in love with himself.

he laughs.

i laugh with him.

i feel my heart dance to the sound of our chuckles.

i am glad i am awake for this.

lastly,

it is the peace i feel as i finally step out into the warm sunlight and just breathe.

as long as i am breathing,

i am awake.

as long as i am awake and there is life inside this body, and I can absorb the sensations around me, then there is worth.

then,

there is purpose.

and,

with purpose,

i can not close my eyes.

*Answers Own Question*

Why Do I Exist? (questions we ask ourselves at 2 in the morning)…

You exist, because there is no universe without you; there is no other you that can share the same view or even the same universe, not with their eyes.

You are a mind that gives matter; there is matter to your mind. You give and are being. The universe’s being is held up in your disguise. You are being, because you can’t not be. You can change, but something will always exist. There is no point in running away from life.

Your being is meant here. It is not by coincidence, the places you appear. Purpose. Feel it. Cherish your purpose. Let it grow. Be and follow your purpose as you are right now. Nurture purpose and your existence. Purpose is your nature. Your nature is in strength, muster this strength, this purpose.
