Feel the Rapture of Being Alive

“People say that what we’re all seeking is meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonance within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.”

~ Joseph Campbell


When do you feel invigorated and alive? Spend a few moments considering what brings about your aliveness… maybe an outdoor activity, an art project, playing music, dancing, maybe connecting heart-to-heart with a loved one? Sometime this week, allow yourself to experience what brings you that sense of aliveness and notice the elements of your aliveness, acknowledge and savor the experience.
