Reviews

"People cannot see the whole life of their lives while they are living it moment by moment. Therefore, the interpretation of the events and patterns of one's life in terms of an overall tendency, or the meaning, is an activity of the higher mind. It requires that we look at a series of temporal events as if they were simultaneous.

One might reasonably ask whether we find the meaning of our lives or whether we project this meaning on our lives.
