The Meaning of Life

What is the meaning of life? Everybody has his/her own opinion
on what this meaning is. Michael Jordan, Oprah Winfrey, and Michael
Jackson for example all have their own views. This is the meaning of
life according to Michael Jackson. “Life blooms into flowers, love
songs, music, and explodes into stars, nebulae, and galaxies. We exist in
living, pulsating, dancing universe, and we are a privileged species
because the creative force of all life is most alive in our souls.” I
agree with this philosophy for many reasons. I will explain them in
this essay.
The first part of the quote is very powerful. “Life blooms
into flowers, love songs, music, and explodes into stars, nebulae and
galaxies....” To me this means that life can be very simple and slow
with not a whole lot to worry about, while at the same time somewhere
else it can be very complex and fast paced with numerous things all
happening at one time. The blooming flowers, love songs, and music
represent the slow, simple, worry free part of life. The stars, nebulae,
and galaxies represent the fast, complex part of life. Life is simple in
the way of nature and things that happen in it, but complex in the way
of living and making it through hard times.
“We exist in a living, pulsating, dancing universe, and we are a
privileged species...” This part of the quote to me means the world
around us is always changing and that we should be lucky to have even
been here to begin with. “...pulsating, dancing universe...” represents
the part of life that we can do nothing about. This means natural
disaster and problems in our world such and pollution and the ozone
layer. We are privileged because we have survived such things and
have learned to live with them.
“...because the creative force of all life is most alive in our souls.”
The final part of the quote to me means that we have the power to
control some of the things that happen to us and around us, but most
of all we have the power to control our own mind and that we have the
freedom to do what we feel is right. If we believe in ourselves we can
set our mind to accomplish just about anything. We have the power to
do what ever make us happy.
In conclusion, I believe that what ever happens in the world, we
should try to see the good, the bad and anything in between.
Whatever a person might think or believe should not be criticized or
judged by anyone else. What happens in the world will happen no
matter what we do about it. Michael Jackson said it best with this
quote.
