Imperfectly Perfect

Default What is life?

Here is my take:

Life is simply about love. But not about great loves, it is also about the subtle loves--the loves that your heart realizes way before your brain has a clue. Itís about the strangers that walk into your life for six seconds and you glance over or take in their detail never to see them again. Because try as hard as you might to judge and understand them in the fleeting glace, imagination hardly ever comes close to the reality of flesh, memory, and tangible experience. We can never understand the true nature of the people until we learn to love them. And it is such a blessing to be able to learn to understand the world of these subtle loves in our lives. They have life experiences we have never touched. The world is full of these subtle loves and that is what life is all about-- to experience random acts of over and over again with new loves and the new places. And to remind ourselves how beautiful everything is over and over again with the old ones.



I'm a sappy convoluted mess sometimes. I'll take other opinions in order to grow mine

Life is about relationships. Well, relationships and struggle.

And taxes.

Life is about relationships, struggle and taxes.

Trying to overcome suffering and find happiness. That's more of the goal of life, but I think it can work either way...

A quote taken from a certain Mr Aleister Crowley sums up my idea of life quite succinctly:

"The joy of life consists in the exercise of one's energies, continual growth, constant change, the enjoyment of every new experience. To stop means simply to die. The eternal mistake of mankind is to set up an attainable ideal."

This being a music forum, I felt that this might be a usable definition:

"What Is Life" is a song by George Harrison and is the first track on side two of his 1970 solo album All Things Must Pass. It was released as the second single from that album in the United States on February 15, 1971 with another album track, "Apple Scruffs," as the B-side. On March 27, "What Is Life" peaked at #10 in the Billboard Hot 100, making Harrison the first member of the Beatles to log two Top 10 solo hits on that chart.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Taken from Wikipedia, btw.
