A Life Well Lived
“So what’s happening?”
What’s Happening at Espirational.com?
This month’s theme: “A Life Well Lived.”
When many people think of a life well lived they think of a destination, where they will have acquired possessions, fame, accomplishments, power and money. I like to think of it more in terms of the journey and how we travel through this life. So let’s spend this month of daily inspirational quotes on exploring this subject in addition to meeting people who are dedicating their lives to the service of others and the world.
What’s going on at Espirational Faith?
This month we are discussing how a person can live a spiritual lifestyle, and in fact just what a spiritual lifestyle really is. I start the discussion with a brief description of the difference between religious showmanship and true spirituality. Then I show how The Christ and others have defined true spirituality and how to learn to apply this to your own life. Click here to be linked to the article and join the discussion.
Links to articles or websites we feel are the best in covering our monthly theme or an inspirational lifestyle in general. If you know of a website or article you would like us to share please send us a link and we may included it in this digest of the best inspirational sites and articles on the Web.
20 quotations and reflections on living well
By Toni Bernhard J.D., Turning Straw into Gold
“Once in a while, I like to take a step back from my daily concerns and ask myself what it means to live a good life. What would I be thinking about each day? What would I be saying and doing?”

“If we were to ask ten people to define a well-lived life we would probably get ten different answers.”
