What Is The Meaning Of Life? Why Are We Here?
Those two questions have been asked by thinking human beings since day 1, I think. How we answer them will determine the course of our lives here on earth.
Which is the most vital concept?
There is one concept which, to me, is of far greater importance than any other. Which one is yours? Take a minute to think about it my friends....
Do you have an answer? Please remember it and put it in your comments below.
Mine is very simple. It's GOODNESS! Striving for greater goodness is at the core of my life, always has been and always will be. To me that is the answer to both questions in the title.
Imagine the opposite
Imagine if we were striving for the opposite, EVIL! This world would be like Mordor, that hellish place in Lord of the rings. I believe, even with all the evil in the world, that most of us still hold up goodness as the ideal. If it were otherwise how could we survive as the human race?
Universe a living entity
In my view, the universe is a living entity and every living breathing being make up its cells. As humans we strive, well most of us, to remain healthy, physically as well as mentally.
Just as our bodies are well, when our cells thrive, so the universe is healthy, when it's living components prosper. Will you agree with me that we can only thrive, as a collective, where the quest for goodness is upper most in our minds?
Our bodies become ill when some cells cease to thrive. Right? Think of cancer for instance. Cells that have been beneficial to the body suddenly begin to malfunction, and so become the agents of "evil" or sicknesses in our bodies.
Evil is a threat to the universe
Similarly some people enter the path of evil, for various reasons, and they become a threat to the universal body. How many times have evil destroyed the fabric of society, by attacking some cells (think human beings).
One form of evil is oppression, another is excessive greed, lust for power etc. Poverty for instance; which evil causes that illness? Isn't it the greed of some cells? Lack of freedom comes from the evil of oppression. You follow my drift.
