i believe within all living things there are souls, and all those souls are really one soul, and that one soul is love – our creator. we live because love wanted to understand itself, and the only way to do it was through life. and in wanting to experience it’s own beauty, it inevitably created ugliness. it’s yin and yang. light does not exist without dark, for if there is no dark, we would not know what light is. light would just be, and we would know no different, and there would be no “beauty”. the same goes for good and bad. happiness and pain. love and hate.
so once we decide we’ve learnt enough through all the pain we’ve created, we find others who have too, and unite with them, uniting love, and live on to just appreciate the beauty we now understand.
