Light on Life
The Golden Blade 2000
What is the meaning of a life?
This 52nd edition of The Golden Blade continues the themes of Destiny and Community by bringing narrative, biographical, literary, medical, and karmic considerations to shine a light on life.
Can we discern significant correspondences, even patterns, in what might otherwise seem to be a random sequence of events? Can we and do we discern the essential and the inessential details in our individual stories? Are we able to recognize the crucial encounters we experience in life?
Developing such essential life skills can help us to realize the intentions we have set for ourselves in our present incarnation. The contributors to this issue describe their processes and insights in their quests to make sense of life.
