LIFE (FOR ALL OF OUR WORLD) IS JUST ABOUT SURVIVING & THRIVING OVER & OVER & OVER AGAIN...
Survival and thriving are interconnected as thriving makes survival worthwhile, whilst thriving is of course not possible if we are not alive to make the most of it. We survive (sustain ourselves) always with a desire to expand our lives so that we can be thriving too (so that we are living our lives to the max, on our own terms and experiencing all that we desire). As we thrive, we are grateful that we are here and present on this planet, to do so.
If we ever find ourselves living in scarcity - scarcity of love or food or warmth or shelter - it’s the immediate results of what we can bring about to secure our own existence that have our attention (finding enough food, finding shelter) but the driving force underneath our will to survive is to maximise our potential within our world again and make our lives count (for ourselves and others).
