For People of understanding

Why are we here?

No, not why you are in front of the computer.

I mean why are we HERE?

Why are we here today, as human beings on this blue planet?

We could have been

or we could have been insects.
or trees
or even a parasite in one of our friends' brains, for that matter.

But no.

We're humans, and that made all the difference.

And its a major difference.
We could create deforestation, but forests could not dehumanize cities.
We can breed chickens, but i haven't heard of chickens breeding humans.

We are given control of this blue planet. Humans are, in a way, very, very unique amongst living beings.

So why this difference? For what purpose?

Are we created to live, breathe, work, eat and eventually die?

The lion works.

It eats.

It occasionally plays.

And it eventually dies.

Let's ask ourselves; are we any different from the lion? or the chimpanzee? or the fish? What makes us human? For what higher purpose are we HERE, because if we just eat, sleep and drink *like the Coca-Cola advert* we are, in essence no different from the animals.

To be continued....
