Why Am I Here?

ImageShe walks into the darkness not knowing what to do.

Shards of light shines down and she hangs onto them like tiny gems in a cavern.


The Divine Creator tells her, “I am you and you are me.  Go forth and experience all that I have created.”

“Will I suffer?” she asks.

“Yes and through your struggles you will find strength.”

“Will I get scared?”

“Yes and through your fears you will find courage.”

“Will I be lonely?” she continues.

“Yes and through yourself you will find the greatest company.”

“Will I have help along the way?”

“Help will be offered when you need it the most and even when you think you don’t need it.”

“Will there be others like me?”

“There will be others who may be walking a similar journey but no one will be like you.”

“Why me?  Why do I have to go?”

“Because I am you and you are me. I want you to experience all that I have created out which I will experience all that you will create.”

“I still don’t understand why?”

“We can not be re-united until you see what I see.”

“What do you see?”



The Divine Creator creates a hollowed out tunnel and she falls fast into a warm darkness.  Her eyes open to the sound of crying.  It is her crying.

Mahatma Ghandi once said, “If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. … We need not wait to see what others do.” This statement spurred the popular saying, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” www.bethechangebutterfly.com was created to help instill that change within you.

  2. This is wonderful, Rachanee! Philosophical, poetic, breathtaking! In a few lines you have distilled the whole process and meaning of our incarnations. Thank you. Be well and keep spreading the light.
    P.S. Is your name a derivative of the Indian name Rachana meaning “creation” in Sanskrit?

    • Thank you for stopping by and reading here. I’m glad you liked Why Am I Here? Thank you for the kind words too. 🙂 I do not know what my name means. But I was once told it means “the one with the light”. So I’m sure it is a derivative of the Sanskrit name.
