Meaning of life in the 21st century

The Desire to Control
Illusion of feelings
Phoenix of time

Why do we exist? Have you ever asked your self that? Well, the question often appears in our day-to-day life. The main question is, have you ever tried to figure the question out? Have you answered the question?

Here is why you need to question your self and find the answer by your self.

I read once that our way of life means little. No big change both to humankind and the world. And if we are not doing that what is the purpose of life? My answer, the best I can come up with was “ yes, you are right”. But I never stopped there I tried to read as many books I can and try to see the way we live. I was shocked, there was no answer. The fact that human beings are afraid of the things that they can’t quite understand hit me at that moment. So I tried to come up with the answer.

Before telling you the answer, I am going to give you a chance to notice some things that I have.

Have you seen poor people? When I say poor money is not the main concern, but the way they think. Have you seen those people? Full of potential and opportunities and still complain about things that have nothing to do with it? What do they have in common?

Have you seen rich people? Once again, money is not our main concern here. What do those people have in common?

I need you to think about them for a while. And what do both rich and poor people have in common?

Well here is the thing I found

Poor people’s behavior:

1. Procrastination

2. Complaining

3. No Time management

4. No Self-respect or self-love

5. No creative environment what so ever

Rich people’s behavior:

1. Now and when the time comes kind of attitude

2. Taking responsibility

3. Planned life

4. Self-knowledge and self-love

5. Selected environment

Life has no solid meaning. It depends on what and how we live it. But if you need more explanation on what it used to mean in the past the next few paragraphs will tell you.

What is the meaning of life in the eyes of great philosophers?

1. Ralph Waldo Emerson

He was a pantheist who believed God existed. And for someone to truly understand how he felt he said: ” one must find his or her true self and find a way to be independent, self-loving and well isolated from the way of life that his or her society lives in.” Although it may seem vague it has a lot of background to that idea.

2. Aristotle

Aristotle undeniably was one of the greatest minds of his generation. His stand on what he what the meaning of life was that we live to have all the earthly happiness, and we live to get all the things the world has to offer. His standpoint was different when it comes to this. He also said that there is no only one God that could create all these progressive lives.

If you want more on his standpoint there is a page dedicated to his work.
Aristotle; the meaning of life

What is the meaning of life in the bible?

Given that God created all that there is, he also created purpose with it. and the purpose is defined by the action that all creations have or don’t have.
That being said here are some exact words taken from the bible.

It is God that has made us, and not we ourselves.” ​—Psalm 100:3; Revelation 4:11

God has a purpose for everything he creates, including us.”​—Isaiah 45:18.

“Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you.”​—James 4:8; 2:23.

Obey all God’s rules, because that’s all that we are created for.

This is one of the best definitions that a human can get close to. not that it has all the answers but it leads to deeper information and questions your self whenever you think this way. It is the oldest thing humankind could remember, it made it a source of meaning to life.

Meaning of life in Buddhism

Buddhism teaches how life has impacted the world and themselves. So mostly it is a lesson. Thus, life’s meaning is one way of gaining information or a lesson source that they can drain from.

All kinds of lessons are included in it. lessons also include hard times.

These teachings are expressed most concisely in the Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Path, which together form the foundation of belief for all branches of Buddhism.

In this century, life has been like the one mentioned above concept of Aristotle. We live in the “now” so let us create the best of it.

And these days to get whatever you want money is the main thing to consider.

Now that you have seen what the world interprets the meaning of life, the rest is on your hands.

What are the rules of life?

There are no rules, to be rich. You don’t need to follow all the rules to be rich, in fact, that’s when you become poor. See all around you, everyone with an A gets a job. But doesn’t create one. Because everything they work on is the rules. If you are one of those people you need to leave and start making your own rules.

Here is the reality study hard with rules and the regulations that the school or industry of anything that has a school platform and you will be great. Great being an A student. Your end lifestyle will be working for a C student.

Why does the A student work for the C student?

Well, you end up dedicating all your time to achieving A the C student takes time and see the world and how the world works. By doing that he comes up with a small idea yet a great business.

For those who don’t believe in that idea, you can see all the creative and rich people. See their lifestyle. There are people who think being paid monthly form a platform of a person in 5 figures is rich. As long as you get paid you are not rich.

Be creative do not make a mistake by following 95% of the people. Because 95% of the people are poor.

Take this for the day “Do what the poor people do and you will get poor, do whatever the rich people do and you will get rich” Jim Rohn

Give your life meaning by not following the illusion of the so-called “meaning of life”.

Finally, my answer to the question as you may have guessed is you are the creator of your purpose and why not create it big if you are the one.
