What Question Should We All Be Asking Ourselves Today?

0 151

Humanity has to acknowledge that it has developed a corrupt society with hostilities and collisions in its connections.

Today, we have to undergo a self-examination and ask ourselves serious questions about how and why we live: What are we living for? What is the meaning of life? What is its purpose? What is the point of living? Is it simply to survive the few years that we are here, or is there something greater worth investing ourselves into?

For our first 20 to 25 years, we grow up in learning environments. Then we work quite hard for the next major portion of our lives, and then at the ages of 60 or 70, we start approaching our life’s end. In our years of work, we have children that we need to raise and show them the way into life. What do they get out of this society that we have built?

It is like we have placed ourselves in turbulent waters, and then we try to keep ourselves afloat somehow so as not to drown. Ultimately, however, our lives’ frictions and hardships are all in order to lead us to the most fundamental questions about our life’s meaning and purpose, and suffering will increase until we will have to undergo a serious self-scrutiny.
