What does it mean to be alive?

Many people think of the concept of being alive as living and breathing in the world. There is no rhyme or reason for being. There is no purpose for life other than people thinking about it in terms of ‘survival of the fittest’. Religious groups participating in the March on Climate Change, however, are telling us to think of the world in a different way. Religious leaders are espousing the world of material wealth and survival of the fittest and they are promoting a life of peace and passion for the sacred. They are saying that the earth is a sacred thing and that life in posterity is a sacred thing. We need to take the same approach when we are thinking about being alive. Being alive means that we need to live life to the fullest every day. This is the approach that we should take when we are looking at our life and the people and events that unfold around us. Most people in the world are looking at life in the wrong way and they think about the here and now as being ‘alive’. We need to think about the here and now, but we also need to think about the things that truly make us happy in our life and we need to think about our destiny and all the events that happen in our life that lead us to our destiny.
