Affirmation of Life

Dr. Albert Schweitzer described an ethical human being as someone who has the will to live enriched by continuous thought about the nature of the world and the universe and seeks solidarity with others who have the will to live for the purpose of improving life for the common good. Affirmation of life is the spiritual act by which a person ceases to live thoughtlessly and begins to devote themselves to their life with reverence in order to give it true value. (Albert Schweitzer, Out of My Life and Thought, Henry Holt and Company, Inc., 1949) In that sense an ethical human being gives thought to their daily life, understands health, achieves and maintains optimum health status and contributes to a healthy community.
