Words That Live On

By Tony DeLorger © 2011

How important is it to you, to leave a mark on this world, to leave it better off for having had you in it? Many of us search for our purpose in life, seek to understand the reason’s for existence and our part in it. I could never be satisfied thinking that life is some random event that circumstances had created, without some intent. Creation is of course a subject of much debate, many adhering to religious belief and philosophy, others preferring to look to science for answers. The problem remains that we can never know with certainty; we are just a spec within an infinite universe.

So what drives us to accomplish, to matter, in this complex existence we call life? Is it the need for purpose, to be associated with a higher understanding? Perhaps without it we could see no point in life, apart from just the experience of it.

I adhere to the belief there is purpose, one that maybe we will never understand now, but a purpose nevertheless. I think the journey of life must have direction, if nothing else but to motivate us to experience all that life has to offer. What we feel is our purpose is that which inspires us to live a full life. The journey itself, the ups and downs and the lessons needed to be learned will be regardless of our direction. Those circumstances will produce the stumbling blocks and life lessons required.

We are all driven to find a personal direction, an understanding of what we are supposed to do with our lives. Some people eventually find something that not only defines who they are but what they must achieve. These goals become important and often prioritised at the forefront of life. This association is sometimes an outlet for creativity, the ultimate expression of possibility. Creative thinking is as close as we can get to the sublime, the infinite truth of life. Creativity is without thought, without intent and in its purest form a connection to the infinite. It is no wonder that creative pursuits are often the chosen purpose in life, people becoming devoted to the process of expression.

The arts have always been important in my life, having been the core of my learning since childhood. But it wasn’t until about twenty years ago that I discovered that writing was my true destiny and the greatest love in my life. I feel that my soul is nourished by writing and I feel lost without that expression. Writing above all else has given me peace, understanding and a security that allows me to travel life with a confidence and acceptance of circumstance, whatever that may be.

Writing is a cathartic experience that allows the conscious application of introspection and resolving negatively impacted experience. This process to me is absolute freedom, relinquishing negative thoughts and nurturing our deepest concerns.

I wish to be read and understood. It has nothing to do with financial gain, more about sharing what I have discovered in life. Connecting with people on subjects that matter is a wonderful experience and sharing with like-minded people is a joy and deeply rewarding.
