Every step we take in life brings its own lesson and there is no better learning than the one born of the experiences that we live.

Commentary by José Parés Pérez. Concepción, Chile.

Life is… It is incredible how many ways we use to describe life.

In order to define our life, we use any term depending on how we feel: adjectives, nouns, pronouns, etc.

We frequently describe in our conversations what repeatedly happens in our surroundings.

And life is everything for us, we don’t exist without it.

It is what we are.

But our distraction makes us describe it very frivolously. It is impossible to separate life from whatever it is that we need to make mention of.

We are what we have lived, I am what I live and this is how it will be as long as I live.

There is no gesture, step, smile, tear or word that is not born of who I am, of my life.

As long as I live, there is no perception received that is not stored and does not affect my life in any way.

Life is the opportunity we have to get to know life, to know what we are, to generate more life. We can imagine whatever we like about the purpose of life. However, whatever it is we imagine, does not change one iota of life.

Every step we take in life brings its own lesson. Every step you take teaches you to live, that is, to preserve life, everyone’s life.

We learn from what we live. Observe attentively what you live and you will get to know what life is.
