"Our prime purpose in this life is to help others.

And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.”

 

The Dalai Lama

 

my prime purpose includes

but doesnt entirely consist

of

helping

and

not hurting

others

who share this life with me

though both are good both

are

part of

yet

not all of

my lifes true prime purpose

which is, to quote a prophet

to do justice

to love kindness

to walk humbly with my God

all my good and lack of harm

comes not

from my natural good nature

nor comes

from my love for fellow man

but rises

alive in my grateful love for God

 

“He has told you, O man, what is good;

and what does the Lord require of you

but to do justice, and to love kindness,

and to walk humbly with your God?”

 

Micah 6:8
