What is life?




Some people wonder about existance. Why do we come to the world? Why are we here? What is our purpose? I say that life is just a good time to enjoy. Live every minute as if it were the last one. We don't know what comes next and how long we are going to stay here. Share the best of you with those around you.

This could be heaven for us…

About this question, I like the point of view of the book The Unbearable Lightness of Being.

Life is a kind of miracle in the cosmos. Thinking is another miracle. Is life depending of thinking? Do life needs mind to be? Do animals have mind? Plants? Bacterias? Mushrooms? Nobody (on Earth) knows wether there's some kind of life elsewhere, out of our planet. By the way, what life is it for medusas, fishes in the abysses, or animals living in the dust ? Moving planets and exploding stars : are they living ? Are movements of galaxies an evidence of life somewhere, even ages ago? 

Do horses think of God? Do snakes  pray for a better living in the desert? What about the billions of bacteria living in our blood, skin , or bowels ? A cancer cell is living. It goes on living by its metastases. Right ? An AIDS infected cell wants to live. With or without the AIDS virus ? What's the definition of life for thoses tiny bits of molecules? Is life depending of our molecular structure? 

We, human species, think that we are the only thinking animals. Who can prove it?  Where's the evidence? Is suffering, living? Is thinking, living?  Is enjoying, living? Is paying golf green-fees and parkings lots a way of living? 

For us, human beings, living means living happily, (at least paying the less income tax possible), enjoying our good health, sharing good moments with pals, loving our parents, children, etc…  But isn't a kind of narrow way of thinking? Is there another way of living? When we join God anywhere up (or down) here, will we be TRULY living? Is living the now moment the only life which counts ? Is living on hope, really living? 

In short…..  I wonder !
