Here’s an age-old question. What is the meaning of life?
That is an old question.
Unfortunately, the con-artist elite have created a huge myth that the meaning of life is so complicated that we need them to unravel it for us. Nothing is farther from reality than that premise. First off, we don’t need spiritual con-artists to know what the meaning of life is.
Happiness. Pure and simple, it’s happiness.
You might ask; Isn’t the meaning of life subjective? What is ultimately important for me may not be important to you.
Yes, it is subjective. However, if you are happy, what else is there besides the basic things you need to survive? We need food, water, warmth, rest, and safety to survive and keep our wits about us. But what do we strive for in order to feel fulfilled — happiness. Even criminals seek fulfillment through dishonest means, but the end result is typically to feel happiness about what they have or what they have done. Sure, some people that have major mental problems may have a twisted sense of what it takes to feel fulfilled, but most of us can feel that we are doing good and that we are successful if we are happy.
It still sounds too easy to be the meaning of life.
Why should it be complicated? The con-artists have created a huge mystique that everything is so complicated and it’s all spiritual. They manipulate our emotions in order to keep control over us and they spread the lie that the meaning of life is hidden from us. It is not complicated nor is it hidden. When you are happy, does anything else matter?
If you were in a constant state of happiness, would the trivial issues of the world bother you?
I want to be clear about this. I don’t mean a reality-hiding, euphoric drug-like state of happiness. Rather, a deep sense of satisfaction and exhilaration based on reality. For example, the state of happiness you experience from honest achievement and bettering yourself.
You can achieve that type of happiness from creating values.
Creating something of value brings tremendous happiness and an ego-boosting sense of self-worth. It can also become a great source of income, because you will be providing something that people want. As you will love what you do, you can learn to do it better than anyone else does. This will make you competitive in the marketplace and be excellent for business.
You will have drive and commitment. Any past motivational problems will be squashed. You will increase your charisma because you will be happier with yourself due to your achievements. You will increase your confidence because you will have a much clearer view of the world. All of these things make you more attractive to potential partners!
We’ve talked about the reason for living, but what about the reason for life?
Well, now we’re getting into a philosophical area. Maybe there is no particular reason for life to exist. Mystics love to assign all kinds of spiritual reasons as to why there is life. Why does there need to be a reason? Maybe it just exists and maybe it just happens without any spiritual influence or reason. The properties and physical makeup of the universe may be enough to cause the development of life.
You’d probably like to think that there is a reason why you’re here. If there is nothing after life, and there is no reason for why you’re here, then why even bother living?
Yet what if there is no reason for life to exist or for you to be alive? Would you live your life any differently? If there is no deity such as God watching your every move and logging all your good actions and all your bad actions, then why even bother living?
Give your own life purpose. We’ve talked about what you can do to increase your happiness and to increase your productivity. Would you love to make a difference in the world? Would you like to be remembered for your accomplishments and for the value that you add to society?
Of course you would — even if it is a small contribution.
Those things alone should be enough for you to truly live a life filled with purpose for yourself primarily and for others too. Always take care of your own needs and desires first. The benefits to society can be a result of your productivity and your own life purpose.
