The meaning of life.

Arianna Huffington and Paulo Coelho talk about the meaning of life. Is the essence "All you need is love."? Is this the sentence by The Beatles the one which summarize everything you need in life?

One goal of your life is to answer the question: *What I'm doing here?" and to respect what we are doing.

Arianna remembers very well here wake-up call, her entry point to get out of her life full of stress and unhappiness. The last couple of years were a very exciting time and the perfect time to go on your own journey. "Do what you have to do."

Put everything in a context and realize your life has a finishing line - and you don't know where it is. So, don't waste your life! If you wanna be a writer ignore the people who tells you, you can't have a living out of it. Look at Paolo. He didn't react to silly provocation - but silly problems and provocation surrounds him and everyone else every day.

"Live the present moment and give it a sense, a meaning."

Life is running fast. Disconnect from time to time. Live the present moment.
