What emerged today

Only One Purpose

There is only one purpose in life:

to love.

It is hidden from us like a far-off treasure

buried, not in earth,

but in conditioned beliefs

obligations, tempting

outer perceptions.

 

Yet, it never leaves us,

a tiny light which glows

from time to time. I

catch glimpses

if I turn my soul

in a certain direction.

It does not last for me yet

but I know it

as the only truth:

the Heart opens.

The one purpose in life is to

to Love.
