Everyone claims to be seeking the meaning of life - the why are we here thing. As Joseph Campbell said in The Power of Myth, "I think what we are seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances within our innermost being and reality, so that we can actually feel the rapture of being alive."
The rapture of being alive! How many of us can say that we have felt that?
I close with my favorite Agatha Christie quote, "I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing."
Now antibiotics, aspirin, cough syrup, and a box of 'Peeps!" Should do the trick!
