Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer. ~Joseph Campbell
Life devoid of meaning is a springboard into the deep pool of human despair. We want to believe there is a plan for our existence, a reason the child is taken away in a senseless act of violence either by a human hand or an aggressive cancer. But…truth is…life just is.
We don’t ascribe higher person to an insect, a chimpanzee, so why to humanity? Life is life. It is the individual in the lifestream carrying meaning in their soul. The individual human. The individual creature.
Either all matter or none matter. There is no in between. The CEO is equal to the homeless. When we rank people into matter more and matter not at all, we diminish ourselves, diminish humanity, diminish all life forms.
If we could but see the soul with the clarity of a hawk’s eye, we would understand each person is the meaning driving the web of life.
