– quoting Jed McKenna –
Nothing comes with a build in meaning
Since the beginning of times, people have been wondering “Has life any purpose or meaning?” With time, many different answers have been given by saints and sages of mankind, and yet today we are still asking the same question. “Has life any purpose or meaning?
We are still thinking about this because of the obvious fact that it has no meaning.
Life is meaningless. There is not one big cosmic meaning for all. Actually, nothing comes with “built-in” meaning. All situations, circumstances, things in life are neutral and devoid of any particular ‘Built-in’ meaning. They are neutral props, symbols. What I mean by that is that there is no automatic built-in meaning to anything.
The Unconditional quality of existence
All things are devoid of any meaning so that you are capable of being the creator of your own reality. Existence is unconditional. You are the one supplying the conditions, not existence. The fact is that, the only reason you experience the limitations that you do, is because you have decided to, for one reason or another. If we become aware that we put the limitations then we become aware that we can give us permission to change them.
You bring the meaning to every situation, circumstance in life. Either automatically (unconsciously) or intentionally (by choice). So there is only the meaning we each give to our experience. And maybe the meaning of your life is what your life means to you now. If you want to put it in another way you could say, the meaning of life is for you to give it a specific meaning.
Bashar put it in a very clear way:
“In the recognition that you have never been this ‘You’ before, and you will never be this ‘You’ again, this life only have one life to live, the purpose of this life is to be this ‘You’ as fully as you possibly can. To do what excites you the most. Ask yourself “What excites me the most?” And at any given moment do the most exciting thing that you are capable of doing something about. “
Abraham Hicks wrote “The basis of life is freedom; the purpose of life is joy.”
Eckhart Tolle, stated in his book “A New Earth”, “Your inner purpose is to awaken. It is as simple as that. You share that purpose with every other person on the planet -because it is the purpose of humanity.”
In my opinion, to awaken is not the ‘Built-in’ meaning of life, it is a choice. Life has no meaning, it is beyond any meaning. It is like an open canvas.
What’s the meaning of life? It is like asking what’s the favorite color of life.
Asking what is the meaning of life, is the same as asking, what is the meaning of consciousness?, and the only possible answer would be, Consciousness Is. That’s all.
