Being alive

“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.”

~ Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth

  1. I think Mr. Campbell is absolutely right. Though we don’t always realize it, we crave knowing that we are alive and that only mostly comes through interaction with others. If someone is nice to me, I realize I am alive because someone has appreciated me.

    So true Marie. Thanks for your post. Bill
