People say that what we are seeking is a meaning for life. I don't think this is what we're seeking. I think what we are seeking is the experience of being ALIVE. - Joseph Campbell
Like the any addictive substance, the knowledge of being ALIVE in the moment is the greatest and most fulfilling experience I have ever had. I can think back to specific moments when I was in a state of mind and a place where I knew confidently that I was exactly where I needed to be. Because it is usually for a moment or a few moments all strung together, it can be fleeting. But the pursuit is exhilarating and worthy of the effort.
Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come ALIVE and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come ALIVE. - Gil Bailie
