Extraordinary Thoughts On Life As Perceived by Dr. Victor Frankel Shared With Me By Another Amazing Gentleman
Today I shared a communion on life with a total stranger. I exchanged magnificent thought provoking, heart felt thoughts on existence.
A wonderful gentleman with a great visionary perception of life led me to Dr. Victor Frankel, another extraordinary man of wisdom, who got to experience the worst, yet gained a deeper and stronger outlook, and life empowering strength.
As this gentleman said honoring one of his father's quotes: "There is no such thing as coincidence." I share with my readers the following citation:
Victor Frankel On Life...
“Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather he must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only answer by being responsible.”
This experience proves to me once again, that life is to be lived, experienced responsibly, and shared. Do not close yourselves to the possibility of exchanging incredible opportunities to share wisdom, a smile, your hand, and even open your soul to anther that the Divine places in your path.
You never know how much and how many memories can be forged by giving your best to all that passes your life. Even if it is an instant, you both could be marked forever. This applies to humans, animals, the trees, the universe as you are experiencing at this moment.
