I think of us as participating in the meaning of life, not as translating meaning into life. The meaning of life is whatever it is. Our translating meaning into life is our interpretation. We can be in harmony with our selves which puts us in harmony with Nature though not necessarily in harmony with the outer world of people and activities around us. When in harmony with Nature, we are in harmony with the meaning of life. In becoming more accepting and valuing of my real self, I allowed more synchronicity with my self and became more in balance with my self which resulted in others becoming more accepting and valuing of me -- what a coincidence. What helps me stay focused on inner balance is knowing that my real self is my essence and foundation that I need to stay faithful to even when noticing disharmony in the outer world. I've learned that faithfulness to my inner self is primary and independent of the outer world and keeps me in balance with my inner self.
