‘Feel the rapture of being alive’

How can you watch this video and not immediately head out for a run in the woods?

“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonance within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive. That’s what it’s all finally about.” — Joseph Campbell

Thanks to Trail Sherpa for tipping me off to the video and my friends at Following Atticus for reminding me about the Campbell quote. The video comes from Coachingendurance.com.
