The Meaning of Life

May 21st, 2013

Many among us now are crazy for meanings, and crazed by seeking them out. The meanings of life aren’t inherited. What is inherited is the mandate to make meanings of life by how we live. The endings of life give life’s meanings a chance to show. The beginning of the end of our order, our way, is now in view. This isn’t punishment, any more than dying is a punishment for being born. Instead, the world whispers: All we need of you is that you be human, now. Our work is to sort out what being human should be in such a time. A short film of Stephen Jenkinson, shot & directed by Ian Mackenzie. For more on Stephen’s work see www.orphanwisdom.com
