What’s the point of life?
No, really, I mean it.
Because the answer I hear doesn’t satisfy me.
What I often hear is, “follow your heart,” or “do what works best for you.” It sounds good. The current moral standard here in society is that as long as your actions don’t hurt someone else’s, you can do whatever you want.
Wanna be a Christian? Great! If it works for you, go for it. Don’t like religion? No problem, follow your dreams and hopes for humanity instead.
Either way, this mindset of living doesn’t work. On the surface it does, but deep down I think every human knows it doesn’t.
Because guess what?
Part of us wants to do what is good, but part of us doesn’t, and therefore we can’t simply “follow our heart.”
Just look at human history. People do great things. People do terrible things. How come we haven’t reached perfection yet? Why haven’t we just followed the good part of ourselves?
I think it’s hard because we’re fighting ourselves, and therefore part of us has to die so that the other part can live.
If we lose our life we will find it.
