Life is sanctioned by G-d,
for the sake of mankind:
to create harmony amongst us,
and the rest of His creation.
Life is disrupted by the neglect
of attention to the myriad details of its complexity,
lack of respect to the values of others,
and disavowal of responsibility to the voiceless.
Life does not repeat itself
by way of reincarnation,
nor can it be preserved by downloading
your essence onto a mainframe computer
or uploading your memories
into the artificial brain of an android.
Life only gives us one chance
to make the most of every day,
as we journey along the path to fruition
of all of our efforts, both material and spiritual,
culminating in an eternal reward.
Life regards kindness, compassion,
and helping others as assets
in our spiritual bank account;
and meanness, hatred,
and harming others as deficits
that will accumulate against us.
Life holds all things in balance,
as the Creator looks on with keen awareness
of the plight of mankind,
inclusive of every individual
on the face of the planet.
