I have some thoughts I would like to unpack today. Some musings I’ve been able to piece together. I’ve been thinking about the Purpose of being here, and thoughts on how the world works. Life pushes us, nudges us in the direction of action and away from inertia to make something for ourselves and to act as cocreators in a world where nature as allowed for us dominion. The main premise of this write up is based on several findings including a philosophy I have that says “you can never get something for nothing.”
Also life was not about pleasure but about purpose and self-actualization. Happiness is only a side product and we must follow due course if we are to live a meaningful life. We are opportuned to live in such a time of luxuries and comfort and one can get by in this world relatively easier than our anscestors. Man was never made to be inactive but to employ his own powers towards well defined goals for himself. If we decide to rest on our laurels we are only able to do so because we have others willing to do the work to bring that ease to our lives and so we live on the backs of others, never growing and never applying ourselves.
God created an intelligent world which operates on principles and so if we do not work to make the supposed chaos we live in cogent and intelligible we only resign to the whims of nature succumbing to outside forces and shrinking away at any sign of difficulty. If one is perceptive enough or motivated he can read into the interplay of forces in the world and the principles behind the success of his peers. If one can recognize the pattern for success others have used before them then he will understand that there is really a method to the challenges that life poses. WE ARE THE MASTERS OF OUR OWN FATE. This maxim is the common denominator between all successful people. No one is coming to save you. We live, we learn, we grow. Once we change the way we think about problems and see that tinge of pain as a nudge in the right direction. There really is significance in life or at least everyman should be desirous to live as though he was worthy of such a life. I love God and I know he wants the best for me. I just believe that the world he created was for us to face these trials and conquer them. We will only ever be able to conquer reality if we accept it for what it is and live within it’s principles.
