The Value Of Life

Life was never intended to be labelled
Poor, rich, educated, black, white, Christian, Muslim
Professor, doctor, teacher, farmer, counsellor
All these man-made construction are the source of strife
The classification of life led to inequality, racism, tribalism…
Wars are fought because of political, racial and religious ideologies
Inequality is stretched because of selfishness, materialism and power
The wise man or woman does not value titles, identities and achievements
The substance of being is the only valuable part of human life
To love, hope and dream fall under the priceless list of possessions
To cry, laugh and dance fall under the priceless list of actions
I have seen people accumulate lots of achievements only to succumb to depression
Or even worse - suicide
Covid-19 disease does not spare one's life because of the list of achievements or titles
I have seen many young people suffer mental distress because of lack of spiritual nourishment
Life was never intended to be labelled, just to be held in the palm of being
And nourished with the fruits of the spirit
To be humble, gentle, kind, compassionate and peaceful add more value to your life than wealth
It's the spirit that is cultivated, enriched and freed
The value of life is not found in a big house, bed or car
Envy, wickedness and fear won't get you anywhere
Corruption, greed and deceit won't bring you happiness
The value of life is a priceless state of the spirit
Happiness, peace and Love are markers of a flourishing spirit
It's more important to possess a loving heart than a wallet full of cash
It's during times like these (Covid-19 pandemic) when the truth is illuminated
It's beautiful to die with a heart full of love than a list full of unmet expectations
Life was never meant to be attached to one's IQ or access to resources
Life was always intended to be enjoyed by everyone
Regardless of status in life or location in the world
Life is a beautiful substance
That does not need to be tainted with identities, titles and achievements
Or selfishness, materialism and power
The value of life is always in your heart
Look within and find your true self
Cultivate your spirit day and night
Be in Love and be the Love
Stand on the pedestal of Hope
Enjoy the happy moments
Laugh and laugh some more
Drink from the river of life
With unconditional Love in your heart
Life is an everlasting oasis of happiness and peace
Even death cannot subtract anything from you
