What is the meaning of your life?
Probably, the man thought about the meaning of life immediately. For members of the primitive society that lived in harsh conditions and hourly forced to confront the dangers, to overcome difficulties and hardships, the meaning of life is biological survival. It was necessary to provide itself and relatives with food, comfortable housing and warm clothing.
The daily life of the ancestors of modern man took place in work and worry. But a lot has changed since then? Humanity has at its disposal equipment with its impressive capabilities. Now you don't have days to spend in the woods in search of game. And yet most people are now occupied only by obtaining sustenance. The remunerated employment, housework, household chores take almost all the time. Where here to think about the meaning of life.
But from time to time in some people it raises the question about the purpose of his existence. Is life was given only in order to achieve a high social status, to support themselves financially and to continue their family? Or are there other, invisible in our everyday life goals? Especially keenly one feels the need to find the answers to these questions in the crucial and critical moments of his life.
In search of meaning: a point to put early
In the end, everyone finds their own answers to the questions about your destination. Some in search of life's meaning and purpose of earthly existence come to God. The idea that beyond this material world there is a Supreme being who loves you, appreciates and ensures the salvation of the soul that makes the human life peace.
Immersion in religion helps to preserve vital reference in the conditions of continuous stress and pressure from the circumstances. But can achieve unity with God to be the true purpose of life?
There are other ways for self-realization. Do something to find the Creator outside of yourself, when you yourself become one of them? And then people get all caught up in work. Quite often it is a vague desire to realize their inner potential, to reveal the abilities and talents to tell the world about their individuality. Creativity as a life purpose increases physical and mental longevity, brings the daily existence of joy and fills life with real meaning. Often no matter in what area and at what level is doing.
At some point a creative person begins to realize that her destiny is inextricably linked with the future of humanity. And then all the daily chores, mundane concerns and material interests recede into the background.
One begins to purposefully look for the area of application of their talents, which will give you the opportunity to find himself and to become as useful as possible for future generations.
Genrikh Saulovich Altshuller, one of the founders of the scientific theory of creativity, were sincerely convinced that to give a human life the true meaning can only be a Worthy Goal. It must meet several requirements: be new, specific, significant and to have public usefulness ("How to become a genius. Life strategy of creative individual" G. S. Altshuller, I. M. Vertkin, 1994.).
Human life on earth would be one-sided and flawed, if there was no room for friendship, love, adventures and social success. Of course, the installation on the creative life, in no way does not negate the simple joys of earthly existence. And yet creativity is one of the most powerful ways to find your purpose and put an end to the question about why people live on earth. A point which may well turn into a dot, goes into eternity.
