Another Thought

“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life?
It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.”
Mitsugi Saotome

I’ve been thinking a lot about the purpose of life lately, and about the purpose of Death, too. I have nothing to say about this quote except that it resonates with me. Life is meaningful because of love, and you can’t have love without each other.

But, the cost of love is hate and misery and tragedy–and people bring these things about, too.
