SBNR Daily 10-26-10: Continuous Postcard

SPIRITUAL BOOK EXCERPT:

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 within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.

From: Power Of Myth
By Joseph Campbell
