Excellence Reporter: Dr. Nelson, what is the meaning of life?
Dr. Bradley Nelson: One of my favorite cartoons on this topic has the guru respond to the truth-seeker by saying, “You’d better have a seat – people tend to fall down the mountain when I tell them the meaning of life!”
For some reason, I have been blessed to have some profound spiritual experiences in my own life. I’ve learned for myself that we truly are all brothers and sisters in a most real sense, because I’ve learned for myself and know that we have a Father in Heaven, the Father of us all. Whether you refer to Him as “Source Energy,” or “Higher Power,” I think it’s all the same.
I’ve also learned for myself that we are strangers here in this world. In the words of William Wordsworth, “Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting.” I believe that life is a perfect testing environment for us, designed to allow us the complete freedom to choose for ourselves light or darkness, truth or lies, joy or pain, no matter what the circumstances of our birth may be.
I believe that your life is God’s gift to you, and the best gift you could possibly give back to God is to consistently choose life, truth, forgiveness and joy, to live a life filled with service, gratitude and the highest good you can find, so that when you leave this life you will be comfortable returning back to His presence. Life is all about who we are becoming, ultimately. And I think if we actually, truly understood how important this is, we would probably “fall down the mountain, ourselves.”

When reading your answer I felt immediately connected and grateful.
So good to listen to a voice which hasn’t forgotten but remembers.
So good to come home on the bridge of your words.
