Why Do We Try To Understand Life? What Do We Get Out Of Living? What Is It That We Are Looking For? What Do You Think?
From my point of view, the reason we try to understand life is because we know that there is something essentially missing from us and our purpose. This seems to be really apparent when we look at the fact that no matter how much we have it isn’t enough. People that have way more money than they will ever spend in their lifetime still have that drive for more; and it doesn’t make them any happier, in fact some people will work themselves to death trying to get more.
What we get out of living is highly personal in nature. Some get a sense of satisfaction from helping those in need. To some it is a quest to have the most toys. Others get confidence from finding out who they are and what they are made of in stressful or difficult situations. And there are those that try to get everything they can out of life; the thrill seekers that like base-jumping, parachuting and climbing every mountain on the planet.
And what is it we are looking for? A connection, a sense of belonging that we know we should feel, but it just isn’t there.
There are three parts to who we are. First there is the physical part; the body; that thing we beat up and abuse as we go about our daily lives doing what it is we do.
The second part is the soul; the personality; the part that houses our emotions, senses and our will. It is the perceptive part of us that we use in various ways to interpret our environment and send messages to those around us.
The third part of us is our spirit; that part of us that is more than our physical being, more than our senses and emotions and more than that inherent drive we have to leave a mark on this world and to be looked-up-to and be admired by our peers. It is the hardest part of us to understand because we sense it is incomplete. The aboriginal people of the world understood it; they had a sense of completeness and oneness with their Universe. It is this connection that we are looking for. A connection with the Spirit of our Creator, that we know we should have and desire to have, but it just isn’t there. And inside of us is the inherent knowledge that if and when that connection is ever made our Spirit and our Being and our Soul will be complete.
Lol now that is a great question and to be honest I have know Idea there is some thing deep down inside of us that just wants to know..needs to know...look at it this way though it gives life reason and some times even meaning.
I do not think that it is that we are trying to understand life I think that it is more like we are trying to find our selfs in life,
Good Luck and may you find what you are looking for I am sorry that I can't give you a better answer this is just the most honest one I know,
oh thats interesting ..lol!
You know It's ok to kill by nature as long as you eat it and not let it go to waste. Life was not ment to to be fun and games, we are ment to struggle to survive. So if you ever feel life is hard then hey it's only natural.
Our purpose in life is to survive nothing more nothing less! The rest is down to our overactive romantic imaginations. If you are surviving then you are doing nothing wrong and everthing right. This not my opinion, is it's a cold fact.
