What does life mean to you …
… and are you a reflection of how you view life?
I’m not referring to the quality of your life or how your feel on any particular day but your overall understanding of what you think and feel of as “Life”!
The word “Life” – as defined using the following words and meanings from Merriam-Webster Dictionary:
- The quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from something not living.
- The sequence of physical and mental experiences that make up the existence of an individual.
- The period from birth to death.
- A specific phase of earthly existence.
- A way of living.
- A vital or living being (life form).
- A period of existence.
- (And my own thought – Something More that we don’t understand but know to exist.)
Which of those reflect your own understanding? Are you a little bit of several of those meanings, or do you have your own idea of what “life” means to you?
Life to me is expansive – An unknown but very real and existing essence of a “force” existing in the Universe, the underlying glue in the Universe. Therefore all are imbibed with this “something” that is currently beyond our understanding or rationale. Everything connected to everything else. Always without exception.
I think that perhaps when we define and reflect who we are based solely on life experiences we can forget that sometimes we are more than the sum of all the parts we know of. That, in fact, there is always the potential for … something more waiting to happen to us … or for us to pass on to others.
Keep your life force vital and growing,
All my love to you,
