The Meaning Of Life

There is so much effort and push to become successful, strive to reach goals, and chase our dreams, and those efforts will serve many of us well. I have long been an advocate for having somewhere to go in life and having some target to aim at, for otherwise you are simply drifting aimlessly through life. One that simply drifts through life may not like where they end up because they have let the external world and chance decide where they go.

Our minds are very powerful and help us make sense of this apparent linear timeline that we exist on, but our mind also has to make up information and fill in gaps so that we can have a normal experience. When we have experiences that are repeated over and over again, our minds don’t have to fill in many gaps, but when we have a new experience, our mind goes to work quickly to provide a full picture of this new experience. Our minds rely on the experiences we have had to help fill in the empty holes of an experience; this process also takes a small amount of…
