Meaning Lies In Us, Not Things.

“Meaning doesn’t lie in things. Meaning lies in us. When we attach value to things that aren’t love — the money, the car, the house, the prestige — we are loving things that can’t love us back. We are searching for meaning in the meaningless. Money, of itself, means nothing. Material things, of themselves, mean nothing. It’s not that they’re bad. It’s that they’re nothing.” -Marianne Williamson

Love is the Essential..

 

“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back into our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on Earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.” -Marianne Williamson
