What is Life?

Three passions have governed my life:
The longings for love, the search for knowledge,
And unbearable pity for the suffering of [humankind].

Love brings ecstasy and relieves loneliness.
In the union of love I have seen
In a mystic miniature the prefiguring vision
Of the heavens that saints and poets have imagined.

With equal passion I have sought knowledge.
I have wished to understand the hearts of [people].
I have wished to know why the stars shine.

Love and knowledge led upwards to the heavens,
But always pity brought me back to earth;
Cries of pain reverberated in my heart
Of children in famine, of victims tortured
And of old people left helpless.
I long to alleviate the evil, but I cannot,
And I too suffer.

This has been my life; I found it worth living.

Salam

someone once told me in a vision that

Life is to live the concern of those whom you love .....

If you have everything in this world but you don't have a meaning for your life, then you have nothing. but if you have a meaning for your life and you don't have anything,then you have everything.

so find a meaning for your life before you look for worldy things...!


and thanks Excaliber for this nice post :)

That was beautiful. I could so relate to The three reasons to live or what makes up your life. I was really moved by it. Beautiful.
