Do this. Go there. Find meaning! That’s it, isn’t it?
We want something – anything – to be here, or at least over there.
Sure, there are; family, friends, travel, food, sports, and on and on. But nothing offers any meaning. No ‘answers’ are to be found – – – just more questions without answers.
Immersed in Mystery. We reach out to anything that may contain even a clue to our incomprehension. Books, religions, the occult. Again; searching for anything that may bring us closer to some revelation.
Perhaps . . . our assumption that this thing we call life must have meaning – is faulty.
You can ponder a benevolent god, or God. Then juxtapose that idea with the fact that about 3,000 children per day die throughout the world from malnutrition alone. Is there meaning to be found in that?
Then there is meditation. Close your eyes and let everything go. A trip to the Infinite. A trip to ‘nothingness’. Is there a difference?
We want life to have meaning. Perhaps the best we can do is to understand that each of us is unique. We exist in our own skin, have our own thoughts and establish our own reality.
Our life is exactly that – ours. The critical question is . . .
all that you have learned so far from others, are you going to consider that your life?
