Is Mere Existence Enough? Start Living Today

07 Dec, 2013 0 comments All life areas

Everyone gets the same 24 hours in a day, and we try to fit everything we want and need to do in this short amount of time. For the next 30 seconds, slow down and ask yourself, am I really living the life I have been blessed with? Am I making the most of it? Too often, we confuse mere existence with living itself and this is where the distinction lies. To exist is to be alive in physical being, to live is to be alive in mental, emotional and spiritual being as well. Every once in a while, it’s a good idea to sit down and evaluate where you are going – is it where you want to be, or is it simply someone else who is calling the shots for you? In the handful of days we have to share with others, to be happy and live the life we have been given, it is important to create our own circumstances to the best of our ability and start living rather than merely existing as just another person in the crowd. Make your life more worthwhile and purposeful today:

Propounded by Gautam Buddha and expanded over centuries by his followers, the idea of finding the right balance in life with the Noble Eightfold Path is applicable to a wide range of actions which transcend religion. Religious beliefs define the Middle Path as an enlightened path, one which lies between the two extremes of self-indulgence and self-denial.
