Life is in Living

There is no way to attain to life except by living it - by being alive. Life is not somewhere waiting for you. Life is a process. It is happening in you. Whatsoever you are is your life, and if you start seeking meaning somewhere else, in some dogma, in some philosophy, in some theology, that is the sure way to miss life and its meaning.

There is meaning in anyone's life: A man who had been condemned to a life of forced labor for wrong doings, was shipped to devil's island. On the high seas a fire broke out on the steamer. The convict, a strong man, was released from his handcuffs to help, and he saved the lives of ten persons. His sentence was commuted for the act of heroism. If one had asked him before if his life was worth saving, he probably would have shook his head. - Source Unknown
