    Rings true for me. All of life is a dialogue with the 'world' which responds to every word/action. Learning to discern is separating the wheat from the chaff. The art of life is not just to 'get' the message, but to 'live' the message. ;-)

    The man was an atheist until 60 when converted to Christianity - he was know at the BBC as NSIT (Not Safe In Taxi's).

    This seems to say that everything happens for a reason. This I do not agree with.

    jim, I don't believe that everything happens for a reason either - some times "stuff" just happens. I also think that "stuff" as a parable falls into a messaging art of life. What do you think?

    The positive moments in our lives are the recognition of ourselves becoming whole. It is we ourselves becoming self aware of our true roles as friends, if male, brothers, and if female, sisters. We are becoming self-aware humans and the true art of life is to attain as much as of that humanity as possible.

    Correction: Above comment: The art of life is to recover as much of our humanity as possible.
