The meaning of life is distributed

30. Jan, 2022

What do I want to achieve in this life?

I just learned an important lesson today. Or maybe not a lesson, since it's not a factual thing I have learned.

It is a matter of belief.

From reading "Man's search for meaning" I was presented the idea that the meaning of life does not belong to each of us. It belongs to life (the universe) itself and is outsourced to all of us.

Like individual tasks that all contribute to the bigger meaning of everything.

My meaning is to solve my own unique challenges given to me by life itself.

My unique challenges will never be anothers. And they will never appear exactly the same again for any other being or thing.

It is like a distributed meaning of life where we all help out life instead of ourselves.

And of course love plays a central role. Love is the one pure thing to strive for in this life. At least this is the conclusion that the most smart people I have stumpled upon have come to. Thus I decide to believe it's true.

But maybe I am corrupted. Because I have diagnosed my own hunger for greatness a million times and have found very little logical sense in it. It would be better for me to focus only on love. Yet I strive for greatness and to inspire others. And a lot of my energy goes into this.

But if I am corrupted maybe I am corrupted by life itself since life gave me this unique sets of desires and a role to play?

I just hope that I can balance my life so that love will consume my energy as much as my aspirations for achievement.

Dear life,

I am proud to help out building your meaning. I am a tiny part of it and all of it at the same time.

Wish me luck.
