The Rapture of Being


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 life 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.
