It is indeed an interesting question.
What would you do? For sure, you would do the things that you wont do in normal circumstances. It’s a useful tool for finding meanings.
Some people do not know what their purpose is. Most people will just try to look busy.
Based on 0 month, 0 year experience as a psychic, I can describe your typical day at the office. Upon arrival at the office, you will turn on your PC. You will check you email inbox. You will be hungry since you will skip breakfast. So you will take some time to eat cereal while chatting with your friends. To keep you looking busy, you will shuffle papers, then you will bring them around the office back and fourth. You will stop at your friend’s desk to look for staplers and you will chat with her for at least half an hour. You will bring the papers back and fourth again, you will have go for a meeting…bla..bla..bla.and then you will say, “It’s 5 o clock. Time to go home people!”
You look like you have a busy schedule at the office! Hurray! But is it meaningful? I bet not. If you take a look at your daily activities, only little bit of your time is spent on the actual work.
Too bad! Looking busy does not means being productive. Do you realize that you are doing meaningless activities? It contributes a very minutae portion to anything useful in this world.
So here’s the tip. Always ask yourself whether the activity you are doing is contributing anything useful for the world. If the answer is YES, then chances are, you are having a meaningful life. If the answer is NO, then quit all the nonsense and unproductive stuff. Focus on the productive activity or things that matter the most to you. Russell Peters says it best, “Hey, do the right thing!”
If you ever wonder why you are created in this earth, why you are who you are now, why you act the way you act now and other 10000000000000000000000000000s of whys, seek to find God.
Be close to Him. Find the truth. He will answer your call. You will find you meaning in life. Your heart will know as it is coming from God.
Find yourself a place of solace. Be it in your room, your office, your shed, by the beach or anywhere where the distraction is minimal. You want to go to a place where you are in isolation.
Now, take a pen and a piece of paper. Write them down in bullet point style.Write down everything you want to have in this life, and possibly the hereafter life. Something that are important to you. List down everything, be it a goal, a destination, an activity anything. Something positive? Write them down. Something illogical? Write them down. Something not attainable? Something weird? Write them down. Write them down as long as you can at least for the first 20 minutes. Stop only when you have run out of ideas.
Take a 5 minute break.
Of all the things that you have listed, pick 5 items that matter to your heart. Pick only 5 items. These 5 things are the things that are most important to you. These 5 items will trigger your heart.
The items that you have chosen will make you cry as they are very dear to your heart. These 5 things will give your sudden burst of energy. You will feel different. Why? These 5 things are the things that are most meaning full to you. These 5 things are the meanings in your life.
Here are mine:
1) I want to spend a lot of quality time with my family
2) I want to freely see and experience the world with my family
3) I want to break a way from 9-5 work culture and work wherever and whenever I want to
4) I want to have excitement in life by offering services to others
5) Be in paradise in the afterlife
If you analyze properly, these are the things that matters most. The rest are either:
1) a subset of these five goals;
2) are not really important to you now;
3) just because you need to write them.
Give them a try. And you will find the meanings in your life. Good luck.
This is what the blog is all about. The life after you have discovered the meanings of your life.
It’s about how your life will change after you have found the meaning towards life.
It’s liberating. It’s exciting. It’s overwhelming.
Once you have discovered it, nothing will be the same again. You will see life from a whole new and better perspective.
It does not matter what you did before, it is what you do and will do afterwards once you have found the meaning.
Life is indeed colorful. Life is indeed beautiful. Life is indeed tremendously exciting.
Here is the journey. Let’s Go!
