Meaning of life
Since we are talking about relationships, it is not the time and the place to dive deep into the philosophy of the meaning of life. Therefore, in the jungle we will not go in and say briefly.
Biologically, everything is simple – we must be fruitful and multiply, and after death, enrich the soil with our remains and become food for other organisms. Psychologically a little more complicated – like a big tree growing out of a small seed, our consciousness must go the way of development from complete unconsciousness to the realization of its full potential of awareness. Something is inherent in us by nature, and this is more than pure physiology, and much more than a neurotic attachment to another person, this is a kind of spiritual and physical potential that must be realized. And we all feel it on the skin.
Simply put, life is the process of realizing our innate potential. We have to go some way in this life, but not in the literal sense that somewhere over the horizon there is a goal to be achieved in order to get the top five. There is a process of life – the process of moving along the path of self-realization, and it’s not the achievement of the limit line that counts, but the movement along this path itself – this is where the feeling of fullness of life comes to the brim.
And if for some reason the movement stops, and the person begins to walk in circles or mark time, then there is a loss of the path, a loss of the meaning of life … but in response to this condition, the person usually begins to stamp around even more diligently.
The meaning of our life or the direction of our self-realization is communicated to us in our feelings – in those subtle intuitive experiences that whisper where we should go next. But we listen to the hysterical voices of our fears, which call us to stand still and start building our fortress right here — defenses of relationships and everything else that will help us to be sure of the correctness of the chosen path, that the meaning of our life is precisely in this circular defense from the circumstances. and rough surrounding reality.
And relationships with people — especially love relationships — are the best and most effective way to fool yourself. It is only necessary to find the right person – my neurotic reflection, my lost soul mate, who will lie to me with perfect sincerity about my virtues, and to which I will answer with the same.
