'Life' is a cereal. 'Whole life' is insurance.

More options. Again, all wrong.

Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice.....* Victims of circumstance owe it to fate. Victims of choice owe it to themselves.*One of the widest gaps in human experience is the gap between what we say we want to be and our willingness to discipline ourselves to get there.

Life is for the purpose of increasing the love, truth, wisdom, and understanding which abides in the nothingness between Big Bangs as well as within us and without us during the results of Big Bangs.  These four powers which all human beings (and perhaps all lifeforms as well) must deal with either the presence of or absence of in their lives, Love, Truth, Wisdom, and Understanding, are of course neither matter nor energy by physics standards . . . yet we all know they are true powers and thereby do we "see" for ourselves that in the nothingness can be the ALL.  Love and Blessings - Chuck

You wouldn't worry nearly so much about what other people thought of you if you knew how seldom they did.

A whole life would surely be, at least for human beings, the life whereby one comes to the point of "seeing through" the nonsense that most humans make important in being alive to the "way" of growing along spiritual lines which moves one from egoism with its nil capacity to love towards humility with its infinite capacity to love.  Humbling truths are always asking to be internalized every time one is disturbed inside for any reason, if one makes the internalizing of these truths the most important project in one's life, one will not only learn how to be happy without needing to get one's way, but will further become a servant to humanity because that will be precisely what one most wants to be.  Some philosopher once said, "The only freedom a human one can ever know, is doing what one ought to do because one wants to do it."

That freedom is only possible when one utilizes humbling truth to become freed from the bondage of self.  Love and blessings - chuck

To answer this question i'll reformulate it: why did God create life? The reason is that in God everything is infinite, so nothing ever happens. Life is the experience of the finite, full of surprises of sound and fury. It is very precious becuse it is finite. A whole life is a holy life, with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your might.

A clash of ideas is not a catastrophe, it is an opportunity. Only its constructive conclusions should be allowed to leave the academic framework.

What is Life? GOD is Life. And you are the highest expression of GOD, Life. Life is infinite, the expression of pur individual and collective consciousness. Life never had a beginning and never had an ending. There is no death in life. There is no limitation to life. Jesus had this understanding and he lived it profoundly. And he taught that others can have this understanding and use it here and now. The mysteries of life (so-called) are meant to mbe understood. What appears as a finite existence within the infinite is an illusion. The human mind ( mistaken in its sense of life,substance and intelligence) is destined to grow out of itself, out of all its limits and the superstitions which seem so real and concrete, and then one can perceive self as the spiritual being it has always been, never in nor of matter. This is the rebirth Jesus talked about. The Psalm truly says, "As a man thinks in his hear, so is he." Consciousness is determinative of the life we experience. Therefore it is vital to challenge and improve our concepts of existence. The flesh does not outline the true sense of life, but a finite, temporary sense of that which is spiritual.
