What is the secret of life?

I have found my pot of gold at the end of my rainbow (Secrete to Life). For anyone to do the same you must answer the following questions about yourself; who am I? Where am I? Why am I?

In order to find something, you must know exactly what it is that you are looking for. You must know how to recognize it when you find it, then you have to know how and where to search for it.

If there were no bad things in life we will not be able to appreciate the good. If we had Christmas every day we will become bored, it is appreciated as much because we have to wait such a long time for it to come again.

The source of peace and love is within every individual. The source of greed, envy, lust, selfishness, hate and evil also exist in the same place as love. The source of all human emotion is the same; the difference is only in the choices that people make.

The basic cause of human suffering or disappointment comes about from desire, greed and lust.

A person, who cannot find contentment, cannot find peace. A person, who cannot find peace, cannot find fulfillment. Prosperity, Power and Popularity are not the solutions to human suffering, because you may have them all and still feel incomplete.

Everyone is free to make choices in life but not free to transgress against the laws of nature and the rights of others. You are free to choose and you are bounded by the consequences of your choices. Whenever you make a choice you must accept the responsibility or repercussions that goes with it.

One of the pathways that lead to peace and happiness is determined by your ability to appreciate every moment in life and by making the most positive use of it because every breath of life you take you are one breath closer to death.

In my opinion, the secrete of life is to find peace, love and happiness, to live right and do good always.

When you can focus on the important and valuable stuff in life that makes it all worthwhile, rather than curse the stuff that causes pain then you are on the way to finding your pot of Gold (Secrete to Life).

Answer

13 1/2.. Live well.. laugh too much.. take too many pictures.. love like you've never been hurt.. love to the fullest.. have fun because every 60 seconds you spend sad, that's 60 seconds of happiness in your life that you will never get back:)
If you think very hard about something, it will happen. That is way 85% of people die from their fears, because they keep thinking about their fears.

What does Lily Melissa Owens your jar is open mean in the book The Secret Life of Bees?

It was comparing her to the bees she had been catching. She had taken the lid off the jar so they could escape and live and not smother/die. She (Lily) had just had a big argument with her dad, it was a defining moment for her to defend herself or not. She felt her best defense for herself was flight.
