What Does It Mean To Be?

We have become so consumed with doing things in life and achieving things that we have forgotten how to live.

We are here on earth for a reason or else we wouldn’t be here. So then the question is, why are we here? Is the point of being here to accumulate as much as possible and do more and achieve everything, or is the point of life simpler than that?




I have always wondered about the meaning of life and why we are here; using history, religion, and philosophy I attempt to figure it out.
