Youth, and finding what life is all about

Anytime is a good time to find out what life is all about. But why not start when we're young? Healing and blossoming touch our immediate circumstances and our future as we look beneath the surface—the seeming that life is organic—and realize that true existence is the outflow of divine Life, God. Every moment our real self in the image of God is actually inseparable from Life and all that expresses Life.

How can youth, or any of us, relate to that spiritual reality? We do best not by simply trying to push our experience into a better shape ourselves. We should strive to see it take on the outline prescribed by the Christ, that which reveals God as the one Life, and which brings out evidence of Life in our more loving, vivid, contributive, active living—until our human sense of being gives place entirely to the divine.
