Discovering the meaning of Life

Today, whilst on the train from Bangor in Wales, back to London, England, I was reading Suzanne's blog called 'Nothing exists despite appearances'. She gorgeously highlighted an important point that I'd like to reiterate here.

People get hung up on finding meaning in their lives, discussing and thinking endlessly about whether God exists, what is the nature of reality, or if they should get married, have children and so on. However the greatest mystery is sitting right under their noses. The very fact that the Universe exists at all is the greatest mystery of all, surely.

Ultimately, all is well just as it is. You may not see the glorious fact that you're actually alive, whatever 'you' is, but is that your fault? No. I don't think so. Thoughts come and go, feelings come and go, decisions and choices come and go. All happens by itself, even though there is, and quite naturally, a strong sense of individuality.
Sometimes I find life really tough, and so called difficult decisions need to be made. However, I am fortunate to see that I didn't really make the decision and so don't feel too guilty or stressed about the choice.

You're perfect just as you are, whether you're seeking or not. All is Oneness is operation, just as she is. Right now, oneness is looking at herself. No claim, no fame, no blame.



  1. The words in this post ring true to me. "The real miracle is not to walk on water but to walk on this green Earth." (Thich Nhat Hanh) Pining after more, the mind becomes a veil over the pure magic of this moment and every moment. "Right now, oneness is looking at herself. No claim, no fame, no blame." Yes!
    Thanks also for your link on Facebook to the JK wedding video, which I liked so much that I posted it on my blog.

  2. Hi Colleen,
    Thank you so much for stopping by! It's a real pleasure to have you here. That's one of my favourite Thich quotes actually. I got that last line from the chapter title of a book called Awakening To The Dream.
    JK video is hilarious - I'm so pleased you liked it too.
    Warm wishes,
