I basically started this blog “lifemeaning4u” because simply the meaning of life is what occupies my thoughts. The world is constantly changing and at a pace we can barely keep up with. Technological and medical advancements, socio-economical changes, diseases, wars, ethics and morality and so on and so forth. It can be absolutely overwhelming for us to cope with. I think that we try and do the things that we believe we’re supposed to do such as get an education; buy a home; get a job to provide us with things and hopefully find that special someone we believe that we can share this all with to give it some sort of meaning and relieve our loneliness.
Some of us try to understand our needs and desires within the confines of the divine, various religions or through some cosmic revelation. Then there are those who prefer to escape in a myriad of drugs or through television and social media while others are just content to acquire all of the aforementioned “just because” without truly understanding or caring why. Simply stated, we want what we want because it is there for the taking and will acquire as much as we can get our hands on. In any case, the effects can be both consuming and devastating on us as individuals and society as a whole.
So what does it all mean? How do we adjust or acclimate ourselves to this ever changing world? Is there such a thing as “true peace and happiness” or should we resolve ourselves to just be “content”? Well these are but a few of the things that I hope to tackle here in my own personal space. I realise that it seems grand in scope but I believe that these are the things each and every one of us should be concerned with – especially now! I sincerely hope that this somehow benefits all who read it.
