What is life all about?
Philosophy is a method of reflective thinking and re-saved inquiry. Let us try our hands on some reflective thinking.
Life is certainly not about you alone, or what do you think?
Life is obviously not about me alone, well, that’s what I think.
With or without either of us, life goes on.
Thinking that life is all about self; the very popular and even subconscious notion, in my opinion, is some sort of aberration that requires disillusionment.
Aligning with the truth is all that matters.
We are part of something much bigger than ourselves.
The more we narrow our focus, attention and resources to ourselves alone, the more we miss the point. Likewise, the more we focus outwardly for protection, direction and solution, the more we miss the point.
But, the more we think selflessly, the more likely we are to discover what life is all about.
Life is not all about money.
Life is not all about education.
Life is not all about fame.
Life is not all about self.
What is life all about?
I would really love you to give some thought to life, for yourself.
I recently came across a concept that struck me.
A post: You Are A Unique Variety Of Divinity, caught my attention and got me pondering.
I extracted this quote from there:
“Every individual within the human family – offspring of God – should be an excellent expression of a unique variety of divinity.” ~Pastor WD Favour.
There is definitely something beyond our senses which we are part of.
Each individual is unique, yet there are numerous identical features that makes us human beings.
Every human being has a physiological, psychological and consciously or unconsciously, a philosophical dimension.
Our thoughts for ourselves and for one another seem to have an effect on the way life plays out for us both individually and collectively.
The world may be made up of different tribes with different skin colours, languages, cultures, religions and perspectives, yet the decisions and activities of the various individual units affect the entire unit.
The individual may be complete alone, yet the individual may complete a group that may inturn complete the globe.
Individuals may be connected to many groups and share many perspectives that may differ in values from each other, yet, they are interwoven.
We are all linked, one way or the other, and the earlier we awaken to the fact that we are one and bigger than we imagine, we can function better both individually and collectively.
Oh how educating, awakening and revealing another simple concept I came across is.
It’s in another blog post: Attraction to Natural Disasters.
I hope you are still pondering what life is all about?
There is pleasure, there is pain, some people live and some others die, yet life goes on.
What is the point of the struggle for survival and the competition to out possess or outshine one another, when death levels everything for each individual?
Some things like the natural disasters are just a sign to prove to humanity that there are forces beyond the control of individuals.
The natural beauty, the rainbows, the sunrise, sunset, the full moon, the half moon, the waterfalls, the caves, the mountains, the flowers and all the pleasing sights that we cannot control are also a sign pointing to the same fact.
Life is huge and massive.
Life links all existence.
We come and we go, but life goes on.
What impact can we make on life, with our existence? That’s what makes the difference.
A life shared with others and accomplishments that bring joy to many, far outweighs whatever we do for our own selves.
There is need for an awakening that will bring the truth to our consciousness.
The abuse and wickedness that we often experience from family, neighbours or enemies, is neither worth retaliating nor grieving over.
We can focus on spreading love, peace and joy by habouring them in our thoughts, wishing them to everyone and acting in alignment with such worthy values.
What are your own ideas about what life is all about?
Thoughts, philosophies, concepts and ideas to help us reflect on our priorities, values, character, behaviour, relationship with one another and the essence of life.
