The Aim of Mankind

The world of the inanimate is beautiful, but
The world of the animate is cruel and merciless.
Worldly life gives birth to worldly death unless
We choose by our own free will the alternative.
To avoid a worldly death we need enlightenment.
To achieve enlightenment we must be kind, and
Sympathetic, empathetic, compassionate, and
Passionate, and active in our own self sacrifice.
Through malice toward none, and charity to all
We pass directly from finite life to eternal life.
The formula is simple but difficult to follow.
To love God with our whole heart, soul, and mind,
And love our neighbors as ourselves, and have
Sympathy + Empathy + Compassion + Action
Which = Love, Charity, Truth, and Salvation.
The chief end of man is the glory of God
And to enjoy His abundant blessings forever.
We exist to glorify God and align ourselves
With Him and seek to bless everyone we meet
In some special, personal, and practical way.
