A Reason for Living

Laurent Grenier: born in Paris, France, from Canadian parents, on January 5, 1957. Three months later, his family moves back to Canada permanently.

On June 4, 1974, the strapping teenager he had grown into, with a passion for sports, suffers a neck injury in a diving accident, which results in quadriplegia (near complete paralysis). Suddenly, everything that had motivated him to live until then and whatever future he had imagined for himself become impossible; his life appears absurd and hopeless.

“Why live?” This existential question has been the centerpiece of his meditations for the last 40 years, and his insightful, educated answer—which in the end engages every field of human knowledge—is his greatest achievement. May it be of much benefit to you, dear reader.

excerpts

“We are sentient beings who are extremely vulnerable at the psychological level, and our so-called rational nature is greatly overstated. What we cannot process psychologically, for lack of accepting it, we cannot process rationally, with the result that we fail to acknowledge the truth and instead indulge in wishful thinking.”

Meditation Time is not a book to read, but one to study. You need to take in one of his short essays, think about it, digest it, perhaps for days. Later, after having done the same for other offerings within the book, you may want to return and consider what it says again.

 

For inspiration, instruction and a mental challenge, you can’t do better.
