Why does everyone ask, " What is the meaning of life? What purpose is there for life? Why were we born? Am I real? Surely there must be more to
life than this?/ " Etc.
There appears to be ONLY 3 constants, we are born, we live, we die.
As does all species that live.
I wonder if plants, animals, non-human mammals, intelligent non human mammals, & whatever else that lives on this planet woners so fanatically all
the same questions in their own ways? Or is survival THEIR ONLY
Why do we usually
NOT worry about those questions more & more the older we get? Or when we find our own mortality is in peril, again more so
again the older we get?
People fear not having all the answers to those question & more, yet be deaf & blind to what they DON'T WANT
answers to & it makes ME wonder
how it is possible for people seem as though they can't realize that unexplainable as it truly is, being able to shut of their sight, hearing,
feelings, pain, etc, are actually gifts that could possibly advance their abilities to realize answers to all these Eons old questions?
Or may that be too frightening as well?
Example; I saw one woman who walked around the corner of her house assessing the damage done to the exterior of a freak storm in NORTHERN Manitoba.
Canada, the kind that had not occurred in the area since the one & only recorded instance in the early 1800's by a handful of explorers lol! They
lived in what we call a mountainous area but are really just very huge, long hills forming a Valley at the center. It poured hard for 2 straight
solid weeks, within the 1st 2 hours, leaving for home 130 Km's from there, watched all the highways going out swallow cars ahead of me one by one,
pavement broke & sunk & bridges disappeared, by 2 week's end, there were outside shed, coops, small barns, etc, were i the tops of 20 to 50 ft tall
She saw her daughter smoking,, the daughter dropped the cigarette in a puddle behind her yet not quick enough & the smoke could still be smelled. The
woman just talked about the yard with her 30 year old daughter & moved on the daughter's mouth dropping as the mother is a very adamant anti smoking
We go to a Ladies Auxiliary lunch & tea at which another woman had been talking about catching her 16 year son smoking.
The woman who saw her 30 year old daughter smoke, as well as having had to have smelled the distinct cigarette smoke, states, " Oh you poor poor
woman! I would never catch ANY of my
children smoke! They know the consequences and are not even interested in such a smelly disgusting
I hadn't studied Psychiatry yet & I thought," Wtf is she saying that when we BOTH saw? Why?"
Well of course she believed in her make believe world that HER 4 children were perfect, after all, their Father was a well know Minister &
politician. but that only explains a small part of it. Really, it is such an incomparable thing to the woman, she TRULY did/does not hear, see or
even smell ANY smoke, alcohol or Weed from ANY member of her family. Really.
When I got my Bachelor of Science in Mental health, I came across many of the same kind of behavior, similar & much worse to the point of beating &
murders whose parent/s & sometimes entire families including spouses who even seeing such things are amazingly able to block that stuff out completely
despite any & all evidence that PROVES otherwise.
If these people ever actually HAVE to face reality, end up paying someone like me to get them through what is a very difficult type of self induced
brain washing to break through, yet the key to why & how these people are like that IS there, just not easy to find & fit in the lock.
Why ask for the meaning of life or purpose for/to life is when most likely, a very high percentage of people would either choose not to believe the
truth because the truth of it may be so incomprehensibly simple, people will still think it cannot be, that there MUST be more to it as they could not
have been the whole truth, turn around & STILL want to know why? Or so horrific, people's capacity to block out damaging to the Psyche's will do
just that, again blocking deep down in there so effectively they forget then begin asking all over again or not want to face the reality, or fear it
so much they begin their own Genocide?
