What’s the Point?

We ask
When all seems futile
A wasteland of emptied prospect
Where the only gain is pain
That’s the point
Where our minds need to turn
To the point that dwells within
The heart and soul of every body
The innermost receptivity
That calls out into life:
The point is simply this:
To live, love and be loved
As well as possible
Given our circumstance
In receptive and responsive relationship
With all about us
To be better or worse
Richer or poorer
Sick or healthy
Famous or unknown
Lucky or unlucky
Able or unable
Is not the point
Those hopes and fears
Drive us to distraction
Bringing conflict
Bringing grief
Making mischief
Life is not a competition to succeed
Life is a gift to be cared for
Nothing more
Nothing less
