All living beings experience four essential stages of life: birth, growth, decline and death. Animals appear to go through these without conscious concern for meaning. Many people do the same. Humans are the only (known) species who have the ability to contemplate the purpose of their life and make choices accordingly. Self-reflection is possibly the most important and rewarding activity you can engage in. You were born with a natural capacity to grow your awareness and endlessly expand your experience.
