Life is experience. Consider. There have been experiments that prove that our entire being is involved in making decisions, and that what we perceive as our "mind" or "self" is actually a sort of illusion. I take that as meaning that everything in our body is doing stuff to keep us alive and to make us feel certain ways and our brains are running hundreds of little processes simultaneously that keep our hearts beating and our memories of eating that piece of pizza intact and giving us a pang of anxiety that tells us there's something we forgot to buy at the store.

Another aspect of life is that the world around us is far, far different from what we perceive. Not only is there a lot going on that we just can't and don't notice, but a lot of what we notice just ain't so. We have an "image" of what happened, and experiments have often proved that reality is only approximated in our minds and memories. So most of us agree that "perception" is not the same as "reality". So "life" is what we experience. Nothing less and nothing more. And that is kind of cool.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for asking this question. It's a fairly BIG one! The beauty of life, I'd say, is understanding your purpose and seeing where your gifts (talents) can help serve this world. Everyone has passions and are gifted to fulfill those passions, you just got to figure out what are yours!

There is a song that i love that says "the secret of life is enjoying the passage of time". Life is what you make it, in the end. Is the world a better place for you having been in it? Were people's lives impacted in a positive way as a result of your input? Were you a positive person who added to people's experiences, or a negative person who took from those experiences? It is relatively easy, with the right mental care and attitude, to have a very fulfilling life. Get to know yourself. Be a good person and a good friend. Find your passions and engage in them as much as possible. You'll look back one day and hopefully be happy with the outcome.
