Building an Existence into a Life
Human existence initially presents itself as an overwhelming box of junk. We, at birth, are bound to building this existence through the individual pieces we are given.
Our box does include a guidebook, as to not leave us completely lost in life’s clutter. It was written by the Creator of human existence; the expert. Therefore, it is the most reliable way to approach building a life, despite what pieces we were or were not granted.
The book of instructions begins by explaining the purpose of existence, repeatedly emphasizing that it must be “handled with care”. Then it goes on to explain what each piece means, and why it is important. After that, it narrates how existence can be built in the best way possible. And finally, it explains how to fix any broken pieces along the way.
Some people choose to read and follow this book; other people skim through with half-hearted intentions of following it. Some only follow what they find convenient. And some just choose not to follow it at all, wanting to figure out the purpose of their existence on their own. But of all the people to whom existence is gifted, the most unfortunate of them all are the people who never find the book in the midst of life’s clutter.
Because when one puts effort into their existence, and understand why they are building it, they do not merely exist anymore. They are living.
