A Meaningful Fullness of Life

Bishop Mitrophan (Znosko-Borovsky) of Boston (+2002) writes:
Each of us individually is searching for a meaningful fullness of life which is not to be found in subjective personal pleasure, inanities, and the mirages which so easily surface in our lives. The goal is not to have a short and illusory pleasurable life with its resultant melancholy and despair. A life is meaningful only when it is moving or striving toward Absolute Good.
Shades of Viktor Frankl! For more on the late Vladyka Mitrophan, see this post. And by all means buy a copy of his marvelous little pearl of a book, Path to a Meaningful and Fruitful Life.
