Buckminster Fuller heard this message in his head while walking around Chicago’s Lake Michigan depressed and suicidal. Then he reached an epiphany.
“From now on you need never await temporal attestation to your thought. You think the truth. You do not have the right to eliminate yourself. You do not belong to you. You belong to the universe. Your significance will remain forever obscure to you, but you may assume that you are fulfilling your role if you apply yourself to converting your experience to the highest advantage of others.” – Buckminster Fuller
Never give up. Everyone’s life has meaning. That meaning and purpose becomes less abstract and more obvious when we consciously direct our efforts and our actions towards the benefit of the world and those around us. Keep moving forward. Keep holding your head high. It’s always darkest before the dawn.
