TITLE: A good start for a good end
By sharmila sanka


The start of the landing of a human beingís live on the earth plane is very important. The moment children are born, they start their existence with a cry and it is believed to be normal as the crying indicates full of life. They cry also for another reason. The moment they are born, they perform actions knowingly or unknowingly which have immense effect on their lives. Till then they rested so peacefully in the heart of the Lord and now that they are born, they are far away from Him not knowing the exact time they would reach him. But meanwhile there is a life purpose for them as they grow into matured beings.

Despite being aware or not, the purpose of any true being is to love and please God; to behave in a manner wished by God. God doesnít wish for humanity to make the peace into pieces; to let blood of rage flow in the society; to fight amongst themselves; to be egoistic and selfish in any way. God wishes humanity to decorate their lives with peace; decorate their tongues with truth; their path with righteousness; their mind with devotion; their nature with selflessness; their hearts with pure and incessant love for one another. This is a true life so wished by God and canít we at least try to make his wish possible even to a little extent?

The ultimate purpose of humanity is to merge with God and thus experience the divine bliss forever. But only when humanity lives in love can God be reached. To give a good end to the lives, a good start is needed and that good start is when humanity first makes up the mind to act in a selfless way that doesnít hurt anyone. It has to realize the value of service to humanity for hands that serve are holier than the lips that pray.

Finally when humanity lives as wished by the Lord, they will be ready to face the enlightened truth called God. A good start always leads to a good end. Let that good start be the present NOW. Postpone and forget doing bad but never postpone doing good for the mood of a human being fluctuates while doing good as it involves good thinking, selflessness, effort and little unease.

This was a bit hard to read and understand. Also, the semi-colons were not used properly. You may want to add more variety to your sentence structure as well. God bless.

When I enter into the Advanced Section of the Challenge, I am usually overwhelmed by the great writing of my fellow-Writers who have obtained upperclass status; however, this piece was beyond my understanding. The first sentence was a bit confusing, and I never did a grasp of meaning or conception. Thank you for sharing, however, and God Bless!

This entry reminds of me, in style, of a book my husband and I are reading called "Escape from Reason." It is very theologically written. I think that your piece is too "preachy." But we do definitely want to have a good start on life and a good start on what God wants us to do. God bless.
