The Meaning of Our Lives

Our meaning is here, our meaning is now.

The meaning of our lives is not out there; it is here, it is now.

It is seen in our taking responsibility for our family, friends and fellowmen. We do this because we only become truly human when we interact with our fellowmen.

The meaning of our lives is Self-Transcendence; fully developing our unique individual talents and giving back to our community.

The meaning of our lives begins the moment we accept this responsibility and give ourselves to the world; it is found in creating small pockets of heaven, even in the presence of hell.

Our meaning is here, our meaning is now. May we all fare well.
