It makes up the physical and mental experiences in regards to the existence of an individual, including the continuous extent of accomplishment, failure, discovery, dilemma, challenge, boredom, sadness, disappointment and appreciation. There is also the giving and receipt of grace, empathy, peace, and our reactions to all sorts of stimuli.

“Living on purpose” means doing what truly matters to you in alignment with your values and beliefs. When you’re in alignment, life is right. Things are easy, and everything just works. You feel alive, passionate, and lit up from within.

Humans once lived in caves, wrapped in animal skins and wandered here and there for food. The gates of civilization were opened when mankind discovered fire. From that day forward, life improved in leaps and bounds – our ancestors moved from their stone dwellings to houses.

“Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.”
(Shakespeare – Macbeth, Act V, Scene V)

Humans are the spawn of the Earth. Life is sadness, death, suffering and destruction. But it is also beauty, happiness and living, joy and creativity. Without cause to live there is no reason to die. Life encompasses youth and old age and all that is in between. Life is all that happens between birth ad death – ever changing us.

“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”
― Lewis Carroll
