You assume that humans are animals and nothing more, that evolution is God and accept that a piece of inanimate clay can suddenly jump up and start
self replicating, thinking and typing on a keyboard.
You have a purpose, to see the universe, to wonder and explore and learn and do GOOD to others.
To BE good and by being see the work of an unimaginable being and make use of that which has been put in your hand's to further that creation, to
care about other's even the lesser animal's.
Does a mountain KNOW that it exists, no but you do.
Does a flower know that it exists, no but you do.
You have to know that they exist so that they DO exist or else it is them which have no purpose for unless there is a self aware, self conscious
entity to see and behold, to change reality by observation from maybe into actuality, to pull Schrodinger's cat from the box alive then it can not see
itself, it can never be known and in a very real sense it never existed.
It takes YOUR Awareness and observation to make your universe which only you know and project into your own mind a reality, it may not be the real
reality but it's your reality and it take a greater awareness of self to realise it is not alone and there are other Selves out there, to see them as
equal to itself and to care about them.
You are far from the only one to feel depressed, some of us struggle with it every waking moment of our lives, we miss those we have lost and love
and the safety and security and just there presence that is no longer there BUT they live on in our love of them which never diminishes as indeed the
pain of there loss never goes away.
But love, that is a cure beyond words, beyond reason and without rational.
Love is not taking it is giving, being loved is humbling and loving other's is a kind of freedom and an expansion of the self, of the consciousness
that goes beyond the self, it creates a reason for self sacrifice - not suicide but living self sacrifice.
There is always a reason, it is just sometimes we don't think we can live up to it, sometimes we think we are not worthy and sometimes we don't want
that reason to be ours purpose but if not us then no other was created to fill our shoes so we have to, that is just one of our purposes.
