brahman Posted June 6, 2010 Share Posted June 6, 2010 I have been reading up on some philosophy/psychology lately and wanted to know what others thought. I believe that everyone should have a meaning in life, something that makes that person feel like they are here for a reason. Some literature I have come accross talks about letting go and realize that happiness/contentedness only occurs if you cause it to occur. Outside events do nothing but trick you into have emotion that you can have on your own. But I don't agree with this, I believe that it is events unknown to you, people, jobs, ideas, etc that show you the way, a way that you couldn't get on your own. I think it is a fallacy to think that the best life you can have will be achieved by giving up going after the love of your life, or some other goal like helping others(maybe even your self). I often see those people who try to think esoterically and don't believe any event or person can help them to have a better life, but more often than not it is just a bunch of people who are searching for an answer and because they didn't find it the other way, then they just give up and swear that it is all a scam created by society or something. I know I rambled, but thanks for listening, comment back if you have some good points, maybe something that goes against what I said, or goes with, it don't matter. Link to comment
