Character of Life


The materialistic, mechanistic outlook of modern science has taught us to narrowly conceive of 'life' as a characteristic of individuals and societies. Ancient wisdom perceived Life as a plane or field of existence which is ever present in the atmosphere. This field is ALIVE and responds to human thoughts, feelings and acts. It has a character and operates according to universal laws. The objective of this project is to explore the character and laws of life as they express in history, biography, literature, contemporary events, and personal experience, and to examine the means by which human beings can make life respond for greater accomplishment and fulfillment.
