The fundamental achievement is being alive, and then realizing that you are.
One starts life free, then learns the world, it’s ways and one’s place in it. The task then is to find one’s freedom again.
Life is your chance to live your life. Live life - your life. Don’t live for Others – find your authenticity – become and be yourself.
Once you have been dealt your cards and have entered the game of life, you have to play as best you can. Life is dynamic and will depend on your luck and choices, but equally on the luck and choices of the other players - and even if all can be estimated there is always a possibility of the Joker giving you a new chance.
All relates and starts with Life. Life or its potential is the beginning. Existence first, then essence, principles.
Life comes from life.
Life itself is a continuous tension between the will to power and the will to live; the existentialist drive versus a more open, enabling and Taoist attitude. The answer isn’t a balance between those two but a continuous dynamic between them, their constructive interaction.
What constitutes the good life ? Happiness, knowledge, productivity? Is an existence based on the belief of one’s individual agency a better choice than faith in favor of something bigger, anything?
The coronavirus magnifies the essence of life : human relationships.
To be aware of life you have to get out of equilibrium - enough to be awake, but not to the point where being out of equilibrium kills you, but also not at the level of perfect stillness where you forget that you live. Life is change.
The universe is manifested through life, and lives are realized through the universe. You are the universe and the universe is you. The universe wouldn’t be without you and you wouldn’t be without the universe. You are entangled in your lives, in your existences.
Don’t let your life escape you. Don’t escape yourself.
Life is change and a series of chapters.
Life is energy - energy that you can use, renew, invest, spend or save. Treat life as your energy and know where you want to direct it - it’s the only possession you really have.
Are there unending truths and cycles or is all ever changing and evolving?
Conception is an act of love, of creation, but life only comes afterwards - with birth and having to live in the world and go forward.
We all come from somewhere, and ultimately from the same place. Our life journeys are each different, even though interconnected, and always the sum of all that was before us. Our lives will shape future lives.
Beyond survival and assuring the continuity of the species, what is our purpose? Do we truly have empathy, or do we just satisfy our want for recognition and love and the need to cooperate as humans ?
Life at the beginning is about discovery and choices, then decisions and focus, and ultimately about letting go and rediscovering but with experience, wisdom and a giving attitude.
To resist the future is to resist life.
Life is a miracle - the world is a miracle - everyday of life is a blessing.
The realm of possibilities is life’s origin, without which none would be or live. Akin to the ancient Egyptians Sea of Nu.
A garden lives all year, not just when the owner visits.
Are you part of life (Daoist) or are you life (Nietzsche)?
Life is Energy: by definition unstable, moving and changing. Energy generates its own energy : life leads to life. The life energy is love.
Cycle of life : discover, engage, enjoy, let go.
Life becomes interesting with agency.
All questions should be answered from the standpoint of life, not death.
Life starts with the Will to Live.
Life is the only time when you are you, living and becoming you.
Do you ever see things as they are? At times all is viewed through rose colored glasses. Alternatively, everything looks dark. Your mood will paint everything a certain shade regardless of true values, erasing differences. Your state of mind is your reality. Ultimately, optimism and light allow life.
Living is to experience. Invite love, for it matters more than anything. Finally, find oneness with the world to allow death.
Life is like swimming: birth is jumping in the water, a shock, cold at first, you have to learn to swim, then you aclcimate, become good and enjoy the ride - in harmony with the water and currents; active or passive, at times an effort, at time going with the waves. Ultimately you get tired and the swim is over.
