Does a worm ask itself the purpose of living? Does it stop it's daily function in life because it has become apathetic and given up hope for it's existence? Yet without the worm, life as we know it would not exist. The very earth would not be what it is today.
Every living thing no matter how seemingly insignificant has incredible purpose and meaning in the grand design of it all. That does not mean each thing can see what that is. In fact most are blind to their purpose and importance. They perform their actions for the greater good of all life.
You have been endowed with a higher degree of consciousness in a unique way. You have also been endowed with the conscious choice to influence the sea of life in the universe. Not just relegated to choosing one form but the choices are infinite in how you can affect everything.
You have learned one of the many deceptions of this world. The illusions. What are they keeping you from? What hidden gem is being veiled from your eyes?
Many who discover the great secret of finding a measure of peace have discovered that their purpose is not to wallow in 'nothingness' but rather to give themselves to a world who is in need and desperation. If you stay where you are you are putting yourself on the alter of the first deception as a meaningless sacrifice that has done nothing good for anything or anyone, yourself included.
Discovering what the purpose of the deception is that is keeping you from discovering the greatest truth of all is vital.
Then you can discover the realization within yourself that selflessness has to be one of the keys, because we are not here for ourselves.
Look around you and see the condition of 'the fall' and then all the deceptions will make sense as to why 'they' are busy hiding the truth from everyone.
It is not hard to feel a sense of complete meaninglessness in a world intoxicated with illusions and deceptions. None of which are real or meaningful and all of which are designed to remove us all from love and connection. Designed to keep us from all that is 'Real' and 'Truthful'.
'They' want you to feel hopeless and 'they' want you to feel that all life is meaningless. In doing so 'they' have conquered your soul.

No the illusion is the world of technology, corrupt government, media, money, things to keep us away from anything and everything real. The illusions are hiding the truth and keeping everyone captivated and trapped.edit on 9-4-2012 by Egyptia because: (no reason given)

Every belief that doesnt go with old religion is new age and bullsh!t these days... ? Umm... we are a younger generation who dont live in a box like you and your generations. Our souls came and reincarnated on Earth because your generations dont have a clue about life. So why argue person ? If you dont like my comment, why take energy out of your being and reply ? ... makes no sense, like your closed mind
These "New Agers" are new Souls incarnating at a most exciting time on Earth, we are here to help and enlighten you brain dead and average minds who have been stuck in the system and its beliefs your entire life.
End of Story.

Do you think the OP is coming back, his mood is pissed. He said if he distracts himself for a few days the question comes back. He was talking about illusions that distract him from reality. Losing interest in all things in life. If he comes back maybe he will tell us what comes back into his mind to disturb him? His body breaking down and atoms returning to Earth and thinking his life doesn't matter. Isolating himself and playing nothing but video games.
What games are you playing? GameStop just had a weekend sale buy 2 get 1 free. Did you ever hear the phrase "life's a garden , Dig it". It's from the movie Joe Dirt, he spent his life being stranded at the grand canyon and searching for his family for 15 years or so. Stayed surprisingly upbeat about his plight. Found his parents and started a new family with his friends, because home is where you make it.
It's the question that drives us. I can only show you the door you have to walk through it. If you think of all the beauty in the world, everything you had ever known and will ever know. Illusions like natural substances that keep you distracted like " love" . From the question. I am sorry if this sounds like bull----- . I just found out someone I know was diagnosed with cancer. Someone went off on a rant saying I am older and got problems and stop complaining. Medication can make you feel better or distracted, just take a pill so your symptoms of feeling depressed go away , heard someone say to someone who was suicidal say even if you have to take a pill for the rest of your life if your symptoms don't come back. They are powerful psychotropics that are made to affect your brain chemistry. If you are deeply depressed to the point where you are now maybe an option.edit on 8-4-2012 by BladeRunner5050 because: (no reason given)

That my brother is the journey you are on. Despair, depression, loneliness, self alienation, indifferent attitude to others in the world around you.. feeling like giving it all up.
You my brother are at a low. You are deep in the abyss.. wallowing in unanswered questions but fear not.
This is what the awakened of humanity have to endure before we find inner peace and happiness.
It is the void.. the darkness that many have been through and emerged from with a new lease of life and energy in abundance to venture out into the world and explore each miracle nature has to offer.
The world of psychology will label you a depressive or bi-polar, they will try to box you into a rational explanation which validates their world view but trust me brother you are a true reflection of the world around you.
Those that ignore true reality live in bubbles that eventually burst and we will each have our time.
Yours in now. You have to go round and round and round in the abyss.. almost until it overwhelms you and and fills you completely with despair and heaviness.
When you have swam about in the abyss long enough eventually you will come out of it. It took me the best part of 6 years but i came out of it.. through determination, will power, faith, spirit.. hope, never giving up or giving in.. always holding on to that last strand of something, anything.. and then one day wham! Happiness came, peace came, love came, inspiration came, freedom came, creativity came, connectedness came and that's when everything fell into place.
Now i empower myself at will, I create my own reality, i treat everyday as a gift to go out into the world and be joyous.. in the reality that is full of despair and suffering, pain and deprivation.. i can now walk out as a luminous being and have profound impact on those around me.. i can help to awaken them and empower them too.
Trust me.. you will get there.. your will come out of the abyss.
Peace and love
