The fact that you are alive means that against all odds, the universe has conspired to work in your favor. Every close call with death has been avoided, not only for you, but for your parents and their grandparents and their ancestors for as long as we have been. Millions, billions of families’ flames of life have been put out over time, yet your fire burns strong. Realize that in this present moment that you are alive. You have been granted the gift of life. This gift is yours. Your life is yours. The present is yours.
Ask yourself this now: why am I alive?
