Words To Live By

I’m sharing this video because as a 4 minute reflection, it may very well be the most profound thing you listen to this month, for the next six months, or perhaps even this whole year. In fact, if you’re like me, then this video will speak to you on a very deep level.

It will call to you, summon the yearning that you hold prisoner, demanding that you set that part of you free.  You will want to listen and watch it over and over, as it continuously encourages you to chase what inspires you, what sets you free.

Fed up with routine life and inspired by his father, Dustin Grinnell had set out to find meaning in life, only to discover that the only meaning life has is that which he’s willing to give it.

About Kephen

I am a Buddhist and writer living in the heartland of America. I grew up on a farm and spent a large amount of time outside and in the woods, a childhood I would not trade for anything. I've been writing since I was 14 years old after my English teacher encouraged me to never stop. I am inspired by the works of Thich Nhat Hanh, Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, Ralph Emerson, Henry Thoreau, Marcus Aurelius, Viktor Frankl, Carl Sagan, Jane Goodall, Kahlil Gibran, Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and the list goes on. I read and write about various topics including Buddhism, religion, nature, astronomy, depression and psychology, politics, as well as some fictional writing.
