I’ve often pondered on my soul's purpose. Sometimes I think I got it just to sink back into questioning it. Anybody ever done that? Life has a purpose. We aren’t just idly bumping around here completing mundane tasks like Sims. I think sometimes the purpose is simple. But sometimes, for some of us, I think the purpose is pretty damn complicated. Why is that? Do we make it complicated?

Here is an old article I ran across today on Michael Jackson's soul's purpose:

I started out today looking at the lyrics and listening to Michael Jackson's Earth Song. Michael cared about this Earth so much. Maybe today, we can start with thinking about our responsibilities as an inhabitant of this beautiful planet. Who knows, this may reciprocate an action in 'doing'. Remember: A thought plus an action equals a better tomorrow.

What about sunrise
What about rain
What about all the things
That you said we were to gain...
What about killing fields
Is there a time
What about all the things
That you said was yours and mine...
Did you ever stop to notice
All the blood we've shed before
Did you ever stop to notice
This crying Earth these weeping shores?

What have we done to the world
Look what we've done
What about all the peace
That you pledge your only son...
What about flowering fields
Is there a time
What about all the dreams
That you said was yours and mine...
Did you ever stop to notice
All the children dead from war
Did you ever stop to notice
This crying Earth these weeping shores

I used to dream
I used to glance beyond the stars
Now I don't know where we are
Although I know we've drifted far

Hey, what about yesterday
What about the seas
The heavens are falling down
I can't even breathe

What about apathy
I need you
What about nature's worth
It's our planet's womb

What about animals
We've turned kingdoms to dust
What about elephants
Have we lost their trust

What about crying whales
We're ravaging the seas
What about forest trails
Burnt despite our pleas

What about the holy land
Torn apart by greed
What about the common man
Can't we set him free

What about children dying
Can't you hear them cry
Where did we go wrong
Someone tell me why

What about baby boy
What about the days
What about all their joy
What about the man

What about the crying man
What about Abraham
What about death again
Do we give a damn

"A day without laughter is a day wasted." ~ Charlie Chaplin

I haven't seen a Charlie Chaplin movie in a long time. I wonder if there are any Charlie Chaplin movies on tonight?
This Little Light of Mine

EVERY ONE of our lives and our destinies are affected by the decisions we make during our lives. We're all human and we make good decisions and bad decisions. One's life is not just a learning experience for yourself, but could be for others as well. So your light maybe shining whether u like it or not!

Today a friend mentioned she was a work in progress. What a wonderful attitude to consider yourself as a work in progress. I got to thinking that we all should be a work in progress. How often do we give up? How often do we say ‘I can’t’? Reminds me of the famous saying and all time high sermon topic, “Please Be Patient With Me, God Isn’t Finished With Me Yet’. A work in progress, like an unfinished painting! Wonder what my finished portrait will be?
