The greatest and hardest of all arts to master. When one conquers this art one is infinately happy and at peace. So what is it? what is the art of living? In the book "The Art of Living" Alice von Hildebrand says... "Who is the man who loves life, who desires the day in order to enjoy good things? Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from deceitful words. Turn away from evil and do good, seek after peace and pursue it." - Psalms 33:13-15 Never in the history of mankind has the average man had so many material possessions and yet never has he been more restless and unhappy. All of us know people who have everything and enjoy nothing. Unhappiness pervades every aspect of their lives: their possessions have become burdens which grant immediate satisfaction but do not lead them an inch closer to happiness. We can acheive pleasures; but no pleasure - regardless of its intensity - can satisfy the longing for the human soul. Man is made for better things. There is something paradoxical in the fact that men yearn so deeply for happiness (which Asistotle claims to be the highest good) and yet so often choose paths which cannot possibly lead them to that goal. Man is often the artisan of his own doom his own worst enemy. Today, we rarely meet people whos faces radiate joy and peace. When they do happen to cross our paths, we wish to wrench from them the secret of their joy. What is the precious key that they have found but we do not possess? The answer is that they have discoverd the meaning of human existence, and have mastered the most important and yet the most difficult of all arts, the "Art of Living". By choosing to live rightly, they have been rewarded peace "That the world cannot give" (John 14:27) ____________________________________________________ So what is it? what is the art of living for you?
