What exactly makes me weak?

I'd rather not let my life pass me by while I'm preparing for another that may never come.
I would like your interpretation of the meaning of this life if you care to share?
Let us break it down from the roots.
I think one should never focus on either just one of these, but on both. That way you're sure to never get it wrong...
I think love should be appreciated, but why does it have to be special?
I know what you're trying to get at here, what you're trying to build up to. You want to say that the source of love, within all of us, is some sort of deity, a divine figure with its own mind and its own plan. I disagree. I disagree not only with that premise, but with your apparent belief that love has to come from somewhere other than the human mind in order to be really special and significant. I think love should be appreciated, but why does it have to be special? That means it's exclusive. Love should never be exclusive. I get the feeling that associating with humans tends to decrease the value of certain ideas or properties, in your mind. Like the human condition spoils anything it touches, so all the best things have to come from somewhere else. Why is that? Do you believe humans are worthless worms? Do you believe we are all born evil? Do you think we are the fleshly product of something so inherently abhorrent that we ourselves cannot hope to be any better? People who think like that really sadden me. They aren't content with being human unless they have something better to look forward to. They basically disdain the human form in all of its aspects. We are fit for nothing except furthering that which is actually worthy of existing.
If any god believes that we are unworthy, right there, that god should be cast out and rejected as the arrogant and shallow hypocrite it is.
We are not tools. We are not pawns. And I would hate to see us shrink beneath the iron fist of a tyrant. We are worth more than that.
You deemed it earlier as special enough to be listed it as one of the meanings of life and I agree.
Our Creator gives us the opportunity for soul evolution. The question should be are we worthy for such? We have been Given Instruction on how to be Delivered from our errant nature, well short of that state of True Love so valued within, demonstrated in Life by the Holy Messiah Sent as example of Righteous Living toward the 'mansions' evolved beyond this short worldly life.
We are already under a tyranny and the noose of such is only going to tighten. Believe it, for there are many willing pawns serving the world structure with their will power that will see to such irregardless of 'religion' per se---and that is what is Truly saddening.
