“Your vocation is what keeps making more of you.” ~ Gail Godwin

One: I will not die an unlived life.
All: I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire.
One: I choose to inhabit my days,
All: to allow my living to open me,
One: to make me less afraid, more accessible;
All: to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise.
One: I choose to risk my significance,
All: to live so that which came to me as seed goes to the next as blossom,
One: and that which came to me as blossom, goes on as fruit. – Dawna Markova

Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.” ~ Joseph Campbell

“The significance of our lives and our fragile planet is then determined only by our own wisdom and courage. We are the custodians of life’s meaning. We long for a Parent to care for us, to forgive us our errors, to save us from our childish mistakes. But knowledge is preferable to ignorance. Better by far to embrace the hard truth than a reassuring fable. If we crave some cosmic purpose, then let us find ourselves a worthy goal.” ~ Carl Sagan
