Searching For the Meaning of Life

Let us be like a bird for a moment.

Perched on a frail branch when he sings;

Though he feels it bend

YET HE SINGS HIS SONGS.

Knowing that he has wings. Victor Hugo

We all search for the meaning of life. Sometimes the pathway is easy to find and sometimes we stumble and struggle. For me, searching for the meaning of life is the meaning of life! We all play a role in moving the world forward to a time when we will all understand the meaning of life in a way we can’t now. Each of us ascribes our own meaning to this journey. What is important to me is knowing that God is always there for me, as in the poem by Victor Hugo. I know there is no reason to fear tomorrow because God has given us wings. We just need to have the courage and faith to let go and fly! Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard said it this way, “The thing is to understand myself, to see what God really wishes me to do: the thing is to find a truth which is true for me, to find the idea for which I can live and die.” Have a happy journey!
