Joanna van der Hoeven: The Meaning of Life… being part of the ecosystem

_MG_9448Excellence Reporter: Joanna, what is the meaning of life?

Joanna van der Hoeven: For me, the meaning of life is simple: to give your life meaning.

What we do each and every moment is an expression of who we are, and in being mindful and compassionate in our deeds we provide ourselves with a guiding light that helps us through the darkest of times.

By seeing that we are a part of an ecosystem, that we are a functioning part and not just observers, we realise the part that we have to play in order to benefit the whole.

That’s where we find meaning in our lives.

We are all connected.
