On a Mission

Posted: April 20, 2017 in Uncategorized

I was listening to an interesting podcast that highlighted the Heavens Gate religion or what some called cult. Please, know that this post is in no way an endorsement of the religion, I am a Christian who practices his faith through work in a local baptist church. So, with that out of the way, let’s talk about the Heavens Gate religion a little bit. The religion that was practiced by the Heavens Gate followers was a sci-fi religion. In the late eighties, the group really took on the idea of sci-fi. The group called the home they lived in their spacecraft, they were a crew and when someone from the crew left the craft they were on a mission.

Now, as I stated earlier I am not a follower of this group but I like lists. When I go to school or work I keep a list. Why a list? Well, I am on a mission I want to get things done. With my lists, I can check things off that lead to the accomplishment of my mission. I am all for getting lost too but ultimately I am always on some kind of mission even if the mission is to get lost.

I have been accused of “walking like I have somewhere to go” and when I get this accusation thrown at me I acknowledge it and let my accusers know that I walk that way because I do have something to do and I am on a mission. The mission changes and is different and I am not always successful with the mission but I am always on a mission.

I try to do my best to live purposely and I encourage you today to do the same. As long as the purpose is benevolent and malign.  Live your life with purpose.
