It is not that we have a short time to live,
but that we waste most of it
a classic reading from Seneca’s
On the Shortness of Life

click here to read more

Lennox Johnson reading

On the Shortness of Life is an essay written by Seneca, a roman statesman and Stoic philosopher, to his father-in-law Paulinus. In this passage Seneca responds to the common complaint that life is too short. He argues that life is long if one manages their time well, and that most people waste the majority of their time on pointless pursuits.

On the Shortness of Life

The following reading is from chapters 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 11, 14, and 18 of Seneca’s On the Shortness of Life translated by John W. Basore.

The majority of mortals, Paulinus, complain bitterly of the spitefulness of Nature, because we are born for a brief span of life, because even this space that has been granted to us rushes by so speedily and so swiftly that all save a very few find life at an end just when they are getting ready to live.

It is not that we have a short space of time, but that we waste much of it. Life is long enough, and it has been given in sufficiently generous measure to allow the accomplishment of the very greatest things if the whole of it is well invested. But when it is squandered in luxury and carelessness, when it is devoted to no good end, forced at last by the ultimate necessity we perceive that it has passed away before we were aware that it was passing. So it isthe Life we receive is not short, but we make it so, nor do we have any lack of it, but are wasteful of it.

Just as great and princely wealth is scattered in a moment when it comes into the hands of a bad owner, while wealth however limited, if it is entrusted to a good guardian, increases by use, so our Life is amply long for him who orders it properly.

Not Copyrighted Backgrounds

Why do we complain of Nature? She has shown herself kindly; Life, if you know how to use it, is long. But one man is possessed by an avarice that is insatiable, another by a toilsome devotion to tasks that are useless; one man is besotted with wine, another is paralyzed by sloth; one man is exhausted by an ambition that always hangs upon the decision of others, another, driven on by the greed of the trader, is led over all lands and all seas by the hope of gain; some are tormented by a passion for war and are always either bent upon inflicting danger upon others or concerned about their own; some there are who are worn out by voluntary servitude in a thankless attendance upon the great; many are kept busy either in the pursuit of other men’s fortune or in complaining of their own; many, following no fixed aim, shifting and inconstant and dissatisfied, are plunged by their fickleness into plans that are ever new; some have no fixed principle by which to direct their course, but Fate takes them unawares while they loll and yawn – so surely does it happen that I cannot doubt the truth of that utterance which the greatest of poets delivered with all the seeming of an oracle:

“The part of Life we really Live is small.”
For all the rest of existence is not Life,
but merely Time

Acrylic Landscapes Art Painting by Rajeshwari

Though all the brilliant intellects of the ages were to concentrate upon this one theme, never could they adequately express their wonder at this dense darkness of the Human mind.
Men do not suffer anyone to seize their estates, and they rush to stones and arms if there is even the slightest dispute about the limit of their lands, yet they allow others to trespass upon their life – nay, they themselves even lead in those who will eventually possess it. No one is to be found who is willing to distribute his money, yet among how many does each one of us distribute his Life! In guarding their fortune men are often closefisted, yet, when it comes to the matter of wasting time, in the case of the one thing in which it is right to be miserly, they show themselves most prodigal.

And so I should like to lay hold upon someone from the company of older men and say: “I see that you have reached the farthest limit of human life, you are pressing hard upon your hundredth year, or are even beyond it; come now, recall your Life and make a reckoning. Consider how much of your time was taken up with a moneylender, how much with a patron, how much with a client, how much in wrangling with your wife, how much in punishing your slaves, how much in rushing about the city on social duties. Add the diseases which we have caused by our own acts, add, too, the time that has lain idle and unused; you will see that you have fewer years to your credit than you count. Look back in memory and consider when you ever had a fixed plan, how few days have passed as you had intended, when you were ever at your own disposal, when your face ever wore its natural expression, when your mind was ever unperturbed, what work you have achieved in so long a Life, how many have robbed you of Life when you were not aware of what you were losing, how much was taken up in useless sorrow, in foolish joy, in greedy desire, in the allurements of society, how little of yourself was left to you; you will perceive that you are dying before your season!”

What, then, is the reason of this? You Live as if you were destined to Live forever, no thought of your frailty ever enters your head, of how much time has already gone by you take no heed. You squander time as if you drew from a full and abundant supply, though all the while that day which you bestow on some person or thing is perhaps your last.

You have all the fears of mortals and all the desires of immortals.

You will hear many men saying: “After my fiftieth year I shall retire into leisure, my sixtieth year shall release me from public duties.” And what guarantee, Pray, have you that your Life will last longer? Who will suffer your course to be just as you plan it?
Are you not ashamed to reserve for yourself only the remnant of Life, and to set apart for Wisdom only that time which cannot be devoted to any business? How late it is to begin to Live just when we must cease to Live! What foolish forgetfulness of mortality to postpone wholesome plans to the fiftieth and sixtieth year, and to intend to begin life at a point to which few have attained!

lighthouse Lookout at night Royalty Free Footage - YouTube

It takes the whole of Life to learn how to Live, and – what will perhaps make you wonder more – it takes the whole of Life to learn how to die.

Many very great men, having laid aside all their encumbrances, having renounced riches, business, and pleasures, have made it their one aim up to the very end of life to know how to live; yet the greater number of them have departed from life confessing that they did not yet know – still less do those others know. Believe me, it takes a great man and one who has risen far above human weaknesses not to allow any of his time to be filched from him, and it follows that the Life of such a man is very long because he has devoted wholly to himself whatever time he has had. None of it lay neglected and idle; none of it was under the control of another, for, guarding it most grudgingly, he found nothing that was worthy to be taken in exchange for his time. And so that man had time enough, but those who have been robbed of much of their Life by the public, have necessarily had too little of it.
No Copyright, Copyright Free Videos, Motion Graphics, Movies ...And so there is no reason for you to think that any man has lived long because he has grey hairs or wrinkles; he has not lived long – he has existed long.

For what if you should think that that man had had a long voyage who had been caught by a fierce storm as soon as he left harbour, and, swept hither and thither by a succession of winds that raged from different quarters, had been driven in a circle around the same course? Not much voyaging did he have, but much tossing about.

I am often filled with wonder when I see some men demanding the time of others and those from whom they ask it most indulgent. Both of them fix their eyes on the object of the request for time, neither of them on the time itself; just as if what is asked were nothing, what is given, nothing.

Men trifle with the most precious thing in the world; but they are blind to it because it is an incorporeal thing, because it does not come beneath the sight of the eyes, and for this reason it is counted a very cheap thing – nay, of almost no value at all. Men set very great store by pensions and doles, and for these they hire out their labor or service or effort.

But no one sets a value on Time; all use it lavishly as if it cost nothing. But see how these same people clasp the knees of physicians if they fall ill and the danger of death draws nearer, see how ready they are, if threatened with capital punishment, to spend all their possessions in order to Live!

So great is the inconsistency of their feelings. But if each one could have the number of his future years set before him as is possible in the case of the years that have passed, how alarmed those would be who saw only a few remaining, how sparing of them would they be! And yet it is easy to dispense an amount that is assured, no matter how small it may be; but that must be guarded more carefully which will fail you know not when.
Motion backgrounds free, no copyright, animated backgroud, video loop ...Decrepit old men beg in their Prayers for the addition of a few more years; they pretend that they are younger than they are; they comfort themselves with a falsehood, and are as pleased to deceive themselves as if they deceived Fate at the same time. But when at last some infirmity has reminded them of their mortality, in what terror do they die, feeling that they are being dragged out of life, and not merely leaving it. They cry out that they have been fools, because they have not really lived, and that they will live henceforth in leisure if only they escape from this illness; then at last they reflect how uselessly they have striven for things which they did not enjoy, and how all their toil has gone for nothing. But for those whose life is passed remote from all business, why should it not be ample? None of it is assigned to another, none of it is scattered in this direction and that, none of it is committed to Fortune, none of it perishes from neglect, none is subtracted by wasteful giving, none of it is unused; the whole of it, so to speak, yields income. And so, however small the amount of it, it is abundantly sufficient, and therefore, whenever his last day shall come, the wise man will not hesitate to go to meet death with steady step.

Of all men they alone are at leisure who take time for Philosophy, they alone really Live; for they are not content to be good guardians of their own lifetime only. They annex every age to their own; all the years that have gone before them are an addition to their store. Unless we are most ungrateful, all those men, glorious fashioners of holy thoughts, were born for us; for us they have prepared a way of life.

By other men’s labors we are led to the sight of things most Beautiful that have been wrested from darkness and brought into Light; from no age are we shut out, we have access to all ages, and if it is our wish, by greatness of mind, to pass beyond the narrow limits of Human weakness, there is a great stretch of Time through which we may roam.
Background Image No Copyright - 1280x720 - Download HD Wallpaper ...We may argue with Socrates, we may doubt with Carneades, find peace with Epicurus, overcome Human nature with the Stoics, exceed it with the Cynics. The Life of the philosopher, therefore, has wide range, and he is not confined by the same bounds that shut others in. He alone is freed from the limitations of the Human race; all ages serve him as if a god.

Has some time passed by? This he embraces by recollection. Is time present? This he uses. Is it still to come? This he anticipates. He makes his Life long by combining all times into one.

And so, my dearest Paulinus, tear yourself away from the crowd, and, too much storm-tossed for the time you have lived, at length withdraw into a peaceful harbor. Think of how many waves you have encountered, how many storms, on the one hand, you have sustained in private life, how many, on the other, you have brought upon yourself in public life; long enough has your virtue been displayed in laborious and unceasing proofs – try how it will behave in leisure. The greater part of your life, certainly the better part of it, has been given to the state; take now some part of your time for yourself as well. And I do not summon you to slothful or idle inaction, or to drown all your native energy in slumbers and the pleasures that are dear to the crowd. That is not to rest; you will find far greater works than all those you have hitherto performed so energetically, to occupy you in the midst of your release and retirement.

The Mystery of Life

by Paul F. Taylor and Simon Terry; last featured December 6, 2020
Featured in Answers Magazine
PDF Download

One of Creation’s wonders is so commonplace that we don’t notice it. Yet it’s more marvelous than all the others . . . Life. What mysterious quality makes a creature alive at one moment but is absent the instant the creature dies? What is this mystery of Life?

No matter how much scientists learn about the complexities of organisms, they have not touched the more difficult questions – what is Life itself, and where did it come from?

ANIMALS PLANET: Most beautiful animals wallpapers

Latest Answers

Have you ever thought about what Life actually is? What mysterious quality makes a creature alive at one moment but is absent the instant the creature dies?    A baby’s body, no longer breathing after it has just died, contains the same DNA, the same Heart and body, and the same mass as it did only moments earlier. So what is missing?

An entry in Wikipedia admits, “There is no Universal definition of Life; there are a variety of definitions proposed by different scientists.”

The latest Encyclopedia Britannica agrees. “Although the scientists, technicians, and others who participate in studies of Life easily distinguish living matter from inert or dead matter, none can give a completely inclusive, concise definition of Life itself.” Nevertheless, the encyclopedia’s online version attempts a clunky definition with lots of complex scientific terms:

A biochemical or molecular biological definition sees living organisms as systems that contain reproducible hereditary information coded in nucleic acid molecules and that metabolize by controlling the rate of chemical reactions using proteinaceous catalysts known as enzymes.

Free Hollywood Actress Hot HD Desktop Wallpapers: Free Most Beautiful ...

Such definitions don’t actually state what Life is, merely what we see in living things. For instance, the biologist and philosopher Harold J. Morowitz comments that living things have one thing in common – cells: “The only Life we know for certain is cellular.”

[47+] Beautiful Rainbow Wallpaper on WallpaperSafari

The teaching guidelines for British textbooks suggest that students ages 11 to 14 learn that life is anything that displays seven qualities, summarized in the cute mnemonic MRS. GREN. That is, living objects have Movement, Respiration, Sensitivity, Growth, Reproduction, Excretion, and Nutrition. These properties are typical of cellular life, but they still don’t say what Life actually is.

Advanced as computer technology may become, a living thing is still leaps beyond.

To help us understand the problem with defining Life,  a cell can be compared to a powerful computer – a highly sophisticated system that stores and processes information. There is more to a working computer than its physical parts – it needs a designer, a programmer, and an engineer to build its parts. Then it needs a source of power and an operator to turn it on.

World's 10 BIGGEST ANIMALS Of All Time (2016) | LIWALE BLOG GuidePedia

Advanced as computer technology may become, a living thing is still leaps beyond. Despite its complexity, the computer is not alive. Consider a house fly buzzing about an office on a blistering day. If the power shuts down, the computer “dies,” but it can be rebooted after the power is restored. Not so with the fly.

No Definition in Scripture

Plants Are Not Alive?

The Bible assigns “Life” to animals, not to plants. Plants are merely described as “green things” (Job 39:8). Most scientists would agree that any life in plants is of a different order than that in animals. If we saw a dead tree in a forest, we wouldn’t be repulsed – we might even sit on the stump! Most of us, however, would not consider sitting on a dead animal. Similarly, we are happy to place dead flowers in a vase, but most homes would not display dead mice.

Animals: Exquisite, Amusing and Aww, 9 | Dusky's Wonders

While the Bible makes a big deal about the wonders of life, it never actually defines it. God introduced this special thing on Day Five of creation: And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath Life (Genesis 1:20, KJV).

The Hebrew word used for the quality of having Life is nephesh. Leviticus 17:11 shows us that this Life is related to having blood: “For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.

32 Cute Animals That Will Make Your Heart Explode From Cuteness

The word nephesh is translated in this particular verse as Life, but also as Soul. Yet, although the Life is in the blood, this verse does not tell us what Life actually is.

The sort of Life described in the Bible is not physical. While Life clearly produces physical results that we can observe, that quality called “Life” is something intangible.

Life, by God’s Command

No matter how much scientists discover about the physical systems in organisms and their possible origin, they still have no clue about the infinitely more difficult question of where Life came from. If you could make a baby from scratch, with all its physical parts in place, you still would not have a living Human.

Beautiful Sunrise - Wallpaper, High Definition, High Quality, Widescreen

The Bible gives us the answer.

Life is a Gift from God, a Blessing from the Creator Himself. By God’s command, not physical accident, it is granted or removed.

“And [Job] said, Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return there; the Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord” (Job 1:21).

Even if we do not understand what Life is, all Humans can “see” it all around them. They also know in their Hearts that the Life-Giver makes all this Life possible. God uses even the mysteries of His creation to make Himself known!

“I Am . . . the Life”

Photos: "Smiling" Tarsier Among New Most Endangered Species

In fact, Human Life encompasses more than the “Life” of animals. After Adam and Eve rebelled against their Creator, Humans forfeited their right to Life in this higher sense. While our bodies may be full of vigor and outward vitality, the Bible says we are dead. The world is one big Spiritual graveyard, with zombies that appear to be living but are missing another quality that is infinitely more significant than breath or physical mobility.

To restore this life – everlasting Life – the Life-giver Jesus Christ stepped into our world. The Creator made this Life available to all, but we find it in only one place:He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life          (1 John 5:12).

God’s hand is at the switch, and He asks only that we look to Him in faith, trusting in the merits of His Son, who was the sacrifice for our sin, that we might obtain Life everlasting.

He who believes in the Son has everlasting Life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see Life, but the wrath of God abides on him” (John 3:36).

After profound investigation,
scientists say that it is
about the Immortality of our Souls.
Our bodies do die,
but our Souls live
Quantum mechanics
is responsible
for this phenomenon.
It is the Science that deals with
the behavior of matter
at the atomic and subatomic levels.

Dr. Robert Lanza
is an expert in regenerative medicine
and the scientific director of
Advanced Cell Technology Company.
He was first famous for his extensive research
on stem cells, but recently
he has become involved with physics,
quantum mechanics and astrophysics.

Lanza argues that the structure of our Universe
implies an intelligence existed before matter did.
He goes on to state that space and time are not objects, but tools used by animals (like us)
to understand the world around us.
Without space and time,
Lanza believes we would still exist
as individual consciousnesses.

Lanza’s theory
is based on the work of quantum mechanics,
which has shown that particles, like electrons,
do not have a definite location
until they are observed.
Lanza argues that this means
it is consciousness that creates
the physical World.

According to quantum theory,
death is not the end for our consciousness.
Our consciousness is a quantum field,
and as such, it is Immortal.
When our physical bodies die,
our consciousness simply moves on
to another quantum field.

Stuart Hameroff and Sir Roger Penrose
say that our Consciousness is data
saved at this Quantum level.

Dr. Hameroff explained:
“Let’s say the Heart stops beating,
the blood stops flowing; the micro-tubules
lose their Quantum state,”
“The Quantum information within the micro-tubules
is not destroyed, it can’t be destroyed, and it just distributes and dissipates
to the Universe at large.”

Max Planck Institute for Physicss
in Munich claim that
there is Life after death.
They say that the World in which we Live currently represents our perception.
So, after our death,
the Souls go into this indefinite beyond.

Dr. Hans-Peter Durr
from this Institute claimed:
“What we consider the here and now,
this World,
it is actually just the material level that is comprehensible,”
The beyond is an Infinite Reality
that is much bigger.

What Really Matters in Life?
(How to Find out What Matters Most)

We live in a world packed with material possessions and are encouraged to chase these things. As a result, our needs never seem to stop growing. So we keep running. But what really matters here?

We run after bigger television sets, newer smartphones, and better cars. We run after job promotions and luxurious holidays. We tend to think that more money in our bank accounts will translate into happier lives. While offline and online shopping can bring us short-term satisfaction, it rarely matters in the long run. There are all examples of things that don’t matter in the end.

Well then, what really matters in Life? This article shows you what matters in life and how to find the things that matter most.

What really matters in Life

The wise do not chase after materialistic items. More clothes, smarter gadgets, bigger cars, and luxurious houses can make our lives more convenient, but do these things bring us long-lasting happiness?

They don’t.

What really matters in Life is Happiness itself. Happiness comes from having a purpose in Life, loving and accepting yourself and others, and maintaining good health. Without these, you will always end up feeling unfulfilled and unhappy.

Research on the impact of relationships on life

An adult development study by Harvard on the lives of more than 700 people was conducted for over 75 years. The participants were divided into two groups one group with participants who finished college and the other with participants from poor neighborhoods. Their personal and professional lives were studied, as well as their health and relationships.

While most people thought that money and fame made for a happier life, the research showed something different. It was good relationships that had a more positive impact on life. It’s not about having a big circle of friends or several relationships. It’s about having meaningful relationships. Quality over quantity.

In the words of Professor Robert Waldinger, the director of the study:

The clearest message that we get from this 75-year study is this: Good relationships keep us happier and healthier.

Robert Waldinger

Psychiatrist George Vaillant, one of the earlier researchers of the study, came to the same conclusion in his own words:

The key to healthy aging is relationships, relationships, relationships.

George Vaillant

Research on the purpose of life

A study by the researchers of the Harvard School of Public Health found that when people have a high sense of purpose or direction in life, they tend to remain healthier in life.

The researchers tracked data from 2006 and 2010 from a national study of participants over 50 years old. Physical and psychological examinations of their health were conducted, including walking speed, grip test, and a questionnaire to measure their sense of purpose.

The results showed that the participants with a higher sense of purpose had a reduced risk of developing weaker grip and slower speed.

Deathbed regrets

One of my favorite articles online is called “Regrets of the Dying”, which covers the most frequently quoted regrets of people on their deathbed. It’s a fascinating story that uncovers what most people regret the most as they are near the end of their lives. Here’s the gist of it:

  1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
  2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
  3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
  4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
  5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

Notice how none of the deathbed regrets are “I wish I had bought a bigger TV”?

What matters in Life and why

For anyone struggling to find what really matters in life, here are some clues.

1. Purpose in life

A sense of purpose gives us the “why” of our life. It is the reason why we do what we do. It is the reason for our actions, our work and our relationships. Our lives revolve around this purpose. It gives our life meaning a meaning which matters in life.

However, do not panic if you struggle to find your purpose. We have all been in that place. I remember when I did, I asked myself three questions:

  • Why do I get up?
  • What do I want?
  • What do I not want?

These questions have helped me find my purpose in life. It helped me discover what really matters to me. Whenever you feel like you are losing track of your life and yourself, you can always go back to these questions. Just remember to be honest with yourself.

2. Good relationships

Relationships are important. The positive kind, of course. In a busy world like ours, we often think that we don’t have a lot of time to give to our family or friends.

Even worse, we take it all for granted and postpone it for later, while we prioritize our work.

However, your family, friends, and loved ones are part of what makes your life happier.

good relationships are important
Good relationships are a crucial part of a happy life.

I remember the happiest memories of my life revolve around spending time with my family and friends.

Good relationships really matter. You need to nurture these relationships with the attention, love, and care that they deserve.

Here are a few ways to do that:

  • Spend time with people who support and encourage you.
  • Replace the time you spend on your phone or TV with real people.
  • Do things with your loved ones to strengthen your relationship with them.
  • Reach out to old friends and relatives and connect with your colleagues.

Spend time with positive people and watch how it changes your life for the better.

3. Good health

Health is probably one of the most important things that we take for granted. We don’t eat healthily, we sleep poorly, and we don’t treasure our bodies. But health matters – both our physical health and mental health.

Be kind to yourself, your mind, and your body. A lot of people are not so lucky to have a healthy body, so keep it nourished and nurtured.

Here are some interesting articles filled with tips on how to focus on your health:

Always prioritize your health. Improve your lifestyle. Eat healthily and drink plenty of water. Get out and talk to people. Visit the doctor for regular check-ups. Treat your health as if it is crucial because it really is.

4. Love and accept yourself

Accepting and loving yourself matters. When you completely embrace yourself and nurture your well-being and growth, you’ll start to see the positive effect it has on your life. A positive view of yourself leads to a positive view of the world.

be yourself be fearless
Don’t be afraid to be yourself and accept yourself for who you are.

If you are unable to love yourself, you will be unable to love others too. There was a time in my life when I criticized everything I did and thought that my life fell apart because of how I am. I disliked myself. Not long after, I started distancing myself from people. It was after I learned how to love myself that I could love and care for others.

How did I do that?

  • I accepted my flaws and recognized my strengths.
  • I forgave myself when I made a mistake, but I also held myself accountable.
  • I spent time with those I loved and asked for help when I needed it.
  • I stayed positive as much as I could and let go of resentment.
  • I made healthier choices and tracked my growth and progress.

 In short, I started to love myself again, and so can you. Take time to discover your true self and embrace it.
