I always wonder why were we created? Why do we always live in uncertainty? What happens after death? Is death like a window to another life?
Creationist? Because they had sex. Because we’re stupid. After death your body decays. Death is like a rest without the awareness. Sometimes all you need to do is ask Bill Hicks. He used to be alive.
The greatest thing about this philosophical question is that if you don’t want to know you shouldn’t really ask. Or ask something that doesn’t involve value of price. Or try for yourself but I don’t recommend dying, because living can be reproductive.
You can’t really rationalize it… logic is not so powerful but it’s helpful for completing objectives. It can’t help you decide an objective of life though. That has to come from something else, that can’t be spoken really. Everybody has to drop it. lol
No one can answer the question of why we are created with full certainty, since such an answer would mean this person was there at the beginning and knows the aim our existence is meant to actualize. That’s why I’m partially existentialist, with the opinion that there is no inherent reason for our existence, but this therefore frees us to define our existence individually. Uncertainty is what makes life so thrilling and daunting, for even though it would be great to get everything you hope for and have a world where no one gets sick or dies, such a world would be boring by the time each of us got to our twenties. The uncertainty, the impermanence, the sometimes deplorable circumstances of life are what should give you the fire to go out into the world and greet every day as though it was your first and last. As for death, I doubt we only get one round of life, and death is the cosmic roulette table that lets us come back again and again, until we live the life we deserve, until we live the life we will be glad to call our last. :)
Yes I agree with you but why of different races different degrees of emotions relationships family responsibility and last but not the least the struggle to survive! I mean is this life surreal? Or is it that we have a mission to accomplish? Its kinda weird when you think that after all the efforts is there some thing called a pay day o some thing??????
I was taught growing up that God does not exist in time, so when we die and become a part of some mysterious afterlife, we can’t even imagine what that would feel like because we can’t imagine being without time. But we kind of can through mindfulness practices and that opens up the almost imagination of timelessness, probably as the sensation of bliss. But could we have sensation without passing time?
I think the importance of questioning this is to find that there is no logical reason and therefore you have to “follow your heart” or that other thing that is pulling us and use logic as a tool to travel towards it.
Yeah, I think you just need to listen, and respond in kind. If you respond to things – whatever they may be, simple conversation, events, questions, worry – without actually listening, you are missing something.
Whatever that something is, I have no idea. But it doesn’t feel right to miss it.
We are living wonders.
Our bodies, our minds, our souls,
unfathomably intricate beyond all knowing.
The true essence our being,
a microcosm of unlimited possibility.
Living in wonder.
Behold the marvels of this vast universe.
Consumed by the mysterious unknown,
desperately we seek to understand it,
eagerly trying to grasp all that is.
Wondering why we live.
What purpose is there for our existence.
Many say this. Others say that.
All answers become more questions.
Forever we wonder.
We are living wonders,
Living in wonder,
Wondering why we live.
