Empty Boxes.


As we set out in the world we are encouraged to seek the prizes of the world:

Fame, wealth, prestige, possessions, pleasure, achievement.....

But when we get these things we find that they are empty boxes.
There is no satisfaction in them.

This is not the true purpose of life.

The cause and purpose of life is love.

It is in love that we find true satisfaction.

To be loved is good but to give love is better.

And love is its own reward.

Love is intimately associated with God.

And God is the the author and sustainer of life.

God is the Beloved.

And His purpose is Love.

  1. It is true that we all need a certain amount of security and sufficient means to live in the world and develop our potential. But greed, power, and fame are not worthy goals.
