meaning and healing

a weekday evening--getting set up to grade some papers

5-6 years ago, in conversation:

"What is the meaning of life?"

"To figure out what the meaning of life is."

Recently, in reflection:

"What is the purpose of our lives?"

"To heal our wounds."

Which is validated by this quotation:

"...healing the soul and healing the world.  Ultimately there is no separation between them."

from "Integrity, Ecology, and Community:  The Motion of Love" by Jennie M. Ratcliffe
