Four Questions on the Meaning of Life
The meaning of life―what it is, really? What is the purpose of my existence? Do I have a purpose? What should I do? Do you ever find yourself asking these kinds of questions?
Finding your meaning to life starts with clarifying your life from a big picture—knowing where you have come from and where you are going.
No one can give you the meaning of life. Only you can unfold this deeper understanding from within yourself. Other people can offer their perspective, give how-to’s, and best of all, be an example to you by the way they live their lives.
In the end, though, it comes down to you tapping into your answers and the deeper meaning behind your experiences. Some of you have taken time for answers, and journeyed quite a distance within yourself to determine your meaning in life. You may be looking to drill more deeply, experience even more meaning in your life and even awaken new meaning.
Enthusiasm! Aliveness! Joy!
Could it be that if you take just a little more time to clarify what you are gaining from your experiences, the more enthusiasm you generate? With greater clarification, you can increase the flow of life energy. You may find yourself getting up earlier and looking forward to each day and your opportunities. You will be re-awakening your meaning in life.
Finding Meaning in Life
An Inter-Connected Universe
Let’s delve into finding meaning in life, from the big picture of the universe, cosmos, God, the All—you determine the word. Some people view life from the world of science while others envision their life mission from either a philosophical, religious or spiritual perspective. And, still others view their life mission from both worlds of science and religion.
To look at life from a big picture, start with the universe. We can see how the movement of the planets in our solar system and the sun’s energy plays a vital role in our world. We have a planet with an atmosphere that supports life, with it’s incredible variety of plants and animals. Many of these species have an inter-related purpose in living, evolving and continuing on as different forms of energy.
We Each Have a Part To Play
Human beings have a purpose, too. We each have certain lessons to experience. You could say we each drew up a set of lesson plans, much like a teacher does, before we incarnated into this school. We each have parts to play, roles to teach and roles to learn.
As you master your lessons of planet earth, you spiral higher in your state of awareness. That’s your evolution as a soul. That’s a key to finding meaning in life.
You do have help on your journey. While in this school of planet earth, you have higher souls, spiritual guidance, angels or whatever you may call this, to help you on your journey. As you regroup your experiences, you may notice the times when the pieces fell into place for you. When you are open and sincere, you will have the experiences and know you have help. You can connect directly with this source.
Certain people and opportunities can come together to help you in living on earth and learning your lessons. Your inner guidance also plays an important role. As you tap into this assistance, you can avoid much of the suffering that is sometimes referred to as the school of hard knocks.
That’s why reviewing and taking stock of your life is so important. you become more aware of what is really going on and can take advantage of this help. You can make the most of this opportunity of having a body on planet earth.
Can you think of a time or a situation where you “happened” to meet a certain person or an opportunity showed up in your life? This especially tends to happen when you make a decision to go for what you feel is important for you.
You’re a Soul With A Body,
Not A Body With A Soul
Another key to finding meaning in life is knowing and having a feeling for the Real You. It is your soul or energy as shown by the oval or halo over the stick figure to the right.
The Real You is your true intelligence and the life force, which feeds energy into your physical body to keep your body functioning. Find out more about the Real You and how you fit into this overall picture.
Let’s be honest about life on planet earth. It can be a mixed bag. There’s positive and constructive experiences and also the challenges and confusion. The later can especially be a part of the journey when a person does not have a clear understanding of the meaning of life.
When we connect within and to our bigger picture, we realize we have opportunities to connect, share, learn and grow in many different situations. As sensitive souls, however, we need to learn how we can be involved in life and take advantage of the positive without getting caught in confusion and suffering.
Four Questions to Meaning In Life
So, let’s consider practical ways for being the souls that we are, the real us. That way, you are not just reading a page on a website, but actually taking the time for getting to know yourself and your mission better.
One way to finding meaning in life is to take stock of your accomplishments, both physical and spiritual. This deepens the meaning of your life as you evaluate and realize how much you have grown and accomplished. Give yourself credit, and avoid judging or being critical of any dreams yet unfulfilled.
You can enjoy what you have put together in the physical world, but most important is what you have learned and how you use what you have learned. As you regroup your experiences you keep expanding your state of awareness. You will feel more energized and alive.
You can regroup in many ways. For example, by taking time away from your routines to relax and tune into your bigger picture and how you truly feel. If you want to maintain this broader perspective, you can arrange to regroup at regular times, even if is just for short breaks.
Key Questions to ask Yourself
Self-reflection gives you an opportunity to view your world more clearly. You can regroup daily, weekly, yearly or even take time out during or after each project. These key questions will help you regroup:
1: What have I done;
2: What have I learned;
3: What did I enjoy most, and
4: What will I do differently moving forward?
Taking time to refresh allows you to be more the soul you are. When you make a habit of regrouping your experiences, you will find more meaning in life.
If you become overwhelmed, down or confused, take time to regroup. This will help you get back to feeling and being the Real You. You will also be able to turn negative situations into positive experiences for yourself.
Once you learn the lesson you have gained something that really matters. It also means you can avoid going through the trouble of having to repeat the lesson.
