My purpose is to love my family (many of whom are deceased), love my friends (of whom I have many), mentor some of my younger friends (that doesn’t seem to be working too well LOL, but I try . Also, I myself need to be mentored. I didn’t realize that until my high-school girlfriend from 20+ years ago returned into my life. (We’re not dating again or anything, but she INSISTS on coming to see me every two weeks to talk). She’s taught me a LOT. (And I have degrees in Mathematics and Accounting, so I kinda thought I had a good grasp on reality). “Nu uh’, as Jennifer says. I’m too rationalistic – not open to the Universal energy. She’s changing that. That’s HER purpose. SHE tracked ME down ‘out of the blue’, so to speak.
I think it really comes down to love and mentoring and enjoying life to the fullest.
My personal other purpose is to write songs, which are increasingly more weighted towards attempting to portray the wonderful universal energy that actually surrounds us all. I know that sounds kinda sophomoric, but I believe it’s true. I haven’t felt so good in years. The energy is there if you just step back and allow it to flow into your mind and soul. ‘There it is’ as Jen would say :-)—————As an aside, Jen has taught me the art of forgiveness. I was nearly murdered in cold blood five years ago. She was saying that I need to forgive him. I was like “What?” But she’s right. I could have carried that hatred towards that drug-crazed maniac with me for the rest of my life. But that’s a waste of mental energy. Don’t get me wrong – I never want to see that mf again – but I am now capable of forgiving even my enemies. ‘They know not what they do’.
