Time and time again, you will be reminded that life is fleeting as you bask in a world of impermanence. Humanity’s crisis is, by all means, one of meaning…
Herein, every emotion has a place and a value – neither repress it nor act on it immediately, for it provides genuine information about the fabric of reality; it reveals what is sacred to you; it signals a direction by which to search for meaning; it summons us to be in service of meaning.
Yet within the landscape of meaning, there must be a willingness to live as though life itself was never meant to end — this is the impulse of why you exist, the reason you continue to exhale today.
