Meaning in our lives

Life is not meaningful to us unless serving an end beyond itself, unless it is of value to someone else.

Abraham Joshua Heschel

“All blessings are divine in origin

“All blessings are divine in origin, but none can be compared with this power of intellectual investigation and research, which is an eternal gift producing fruits of unending delight.”
(Abdu’l-Baha, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 49)

KEN WILBER ON THE NATURE OF AESTHETIC EXPERIENCE

‘Great art grabs you, against your will, and then suspends your will. You are ushered into a quiet clearing, free of desire, free of grasping, free of ego, free of the self-contraction. And through that opening or clearing in your own awareness may come flashing higher truths, subtler revelations, profound connections. For a moment you might even touch eternity; who can say otherwise, when time itself is suspended in the clearing that great art creates in your awareness?’ Ken Wilber
