If I have learned anything in this long life of mine, it is this: in love we find out who we want to be; in war we find out who we are.
The tests we face in life's journey are not to reveal our weaknesses but to help us discover our inner strengths. We can only know how strong we are when we strive and thrive beyond the challenges we face.
When you have discovered your significance, your life will now begin to move towards making a difference.
After you have made the discovery of your own significance, you would then be able to find the reason to stay alive.
For your life to have meaning is to discover what you are meant to fulfill.
Discover what you need to do to make your life have meaning.
If it is only one thing in life that you have or allowed to discover, then it must be your significance.
You have to discover what makes you different in your society.
Find out what you need to do to express your importance.
In my mind, the only way to prepare for the unknown was through an internal, spiritual journey of discovery, not by calculating litres and kilometres... how can humans plan or even make reasonable assertions about the enormous possibilities life presents us?
Education is discovering your full potential and flourishing that potential for the benefit of the humanity.
