i can identify with you and how you feel. the feeling is perticularly powerful when you are close to nature. step out of your house on one night and look up at the stars. a thought passes through the head: they have been there for ages and will be there for ages more. then your mortality comes in focus. we are only passengers through this world. our passage will be so short...
why we have been placed here? GOD KNOWS!!
but one answer that i get in my heart is that for me the 'why' is not that important as 'what should i do with this life now that i am here'... and the answer to that is -- be a good human being. if i have been provided with a conciousness level higher than other creatures then i use in with responsibility. love all, carry out your actions with responsibility, hurt no one with your words and actions...
and believe me, if you just make up your mind each day that today i will be a good human and analyse yourself truely each evening, you will be able to identify so many instances when you could have been kinder or you could have done things in a better way towards the fellow creatures.
for me it's a start towards trying to listen the voice of GOD. afterall its his voice in my soul that tells me where i went wrong!!
