God, in His Word, talks about a kind of living life that is truly living:

“As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.”
I Timothy 6:17-19

I love the following poem by my favorite poet, Ralph Cushman, because he expresses how there is seeing, and then there is truly seeing.

Lord, help us to taste and see that You are good. Open our spiritual eyes to truly see as You’ve created us to.

Reborn
by Ralph Spaulding Cushman
I did not know the sky was blue,
I could not call the morning bright
Until I heard a still small voice
And lo, the world was filled with light!
I did not hear the morning choirs,
Nor heed the lark upon the wing,
Until I heard Him call, and then
The universe began to sing!
Deaf, dumb, and blind, I walked His earth,
I breathed His air, a thankless clod,
Until that blessed summer’s night
When my dead soul found life and God!
