Dear Valued Customers
When it comes to the meaning of life, very often we relate it a particular goal, mission statement, career path, status or simply moving from point A to B or to Z. So, basically we associate it to which goals we have achieved and which we cannot and will not. What is more crucial and fundamental is to ask the right question instead of giving the wrong answers. Who are we? And what do we want? 95% of the population never answers either one.
Therefore, there is need to do justice to our life and being. Of course we cannot answer those questions in one sentence, paragraph, one page nor ten pages. Yet we have a tendency to constantly oversimplified, completely without contradiction and entirely too positive. We fabricate all the stories we tell ourselves about our lives. Life stories are lies. We go through the world with a false self-image. You see, computers store raw data using bits – the smallest unit of information while we store in our brain not raw data but processed data making a compact, consistent and more dangerously casual stories. We want to make good and clearer sense of those contradiction free stories, devoid of holes.
With higher education around the world and embracing the core values of enlightenment namely reasoning, progress and science, we are looking more and more on the larger meaning of life – why we are on this earth, does the universe exists and pushing mortality to higher height etc. Has this modernity not fail while we waste our time chasing bigger and larger meaning of life. The present pandemic of the new Corona virus is not an illustration of the maze of mystery, uncertainty, paradox and duality that appears before us on our life’s path.
Hence there is badly the need to awaken the seed buried within us that yearned for the simple pleasures that had been replaced by technology. So, the smaller meaning of life is massively important with realistic goals because in the end, there is no guarantee of achieving it but if you don’t have one then you are guaranteed of achieving nothing as rightly pointed out by Seneca 2000 years ago.
See you soon.
