Meaning is in the final outcome

Aristotle said that we can never really understand the meaning of a thing until we look at its final outcome; like the alphabet for example; it only makes sense when we put the letters together and form a sentence. In the same way, to understand the meaning of life we have to look at its final form.
The Indians used to say: “When you were born, you cried, and the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a manner that when you die, the world will cry, and you will rejoice.”
Jesus taught that this life is a journey, not a destination. “Don’t let your hearts be troubled,” he said. “You believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. I go to prepare a place for you.” And St Paul, commenting on this, said: “Now we see but a poor reflection …. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.”
