But we are ALL gods children!(troll?)

Sure, we all started out that way.
How many humans do you know, who still are?
If you still are, you're doing better than most.

No clue what you are talking about. Perhaps failure is just the nature of our species?

We all started out as products of the underlying reality (God), with unlimited potential.
All made of the same basic stuff.
Do we grow and thrive, along the way, or become withered parodies of what we might have been?
This is the nature of 'free-will'.
It is my personal conviction that we do not start out with a soul, but as the viable seed of one.
Conceiving this soul and nurturing it, finally setting it free, is our purpose.
But, like sperm, few will actually succeed in realizing this purpose.
It's all very mysterious, as it should be.

Growing a soul is a very lonely business, in its way.
While being the most satisfying thing there is, so few manage it, that the one who does is an island, in a remote ocean, usually only with an empty horizon for company.

I can agree with that to an extent, but what is there to gain from attaining a soul? Wouldn't it be more worth while to just go with the flow? And set free from what? If you are referring from Samsara, I personally beleive most are to week to escape but if you are talking about something else please correct me.

What is there to gain???
The fact that in the gaining, bliss results, is neither here nor there.
Purpose is something that transcends individual desire for gain.
You do it because it is the reason you exist.

"Set free" to join with the larger entity: reality: God.
The soul has no connection with the individual identity that humans think they are.
Yet it is the essence of everything a human is. And infinitely more.

But this is about loneliness...
Loneliness is good until the ego decides it isn't good.
And the only reason it decides this is because it is woefully incomplete by itself.
It needs something it can never have.
Because nothing about it is real.

The soul is both alone, and everything-at-once. The idea of loneliness is not applicable to it.
