The Meaning of Life
Life has its twists and turns. We can try to prepare for them, but sometimes they appear out of nowhere and all we can do is let go and allow ourselves to lean into life’s wonderment.
After two weeks of adventure from coast to coast, complete with painful endings complimented by blissful new beginnings, I wouldn’t take back any of my challenges. My setbacks, my heartbreak, my false starts. They have all gotten me to this point. True life is wilder than any work of fiction,and I am so grateful for my journey.
I’m leaving Los Angeles and returning home with the spirit of Campbell’s words in my heart:
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.
