Meaning

“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 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 … The Experience of life. What’s the meaning of a flower? … There’s no meaning. What’s the meaning of a flea? It’s just there. That’s it. And your own meaning is that you’re there.”


– Joseph Campbell and The Power of Myth (with Bill Moyers)
