We all know part one, that wasn’t the end of the story. Read on……
Yep, my blog is in its infancy and I’m already taking on the big issue.
Bombshell….. I don’t know what the meaning of life is. C’mon peeps, I’m just a 28 year old guy who’s only been in love twice, can count on one hand how many people close to me I’ve lost to God and I shave my chest more frequently the I shave my face.
But I bet I can guess as best about it as the next guy.
Maybe Monty Python got it right when they wrote their meaning of it in their 1983 comedic classic, maybe Echart Tolle got it right when he wrote that It is ‘living like you are about to die but then realizing that you havent‘ , or maybe the band ‘Starfucker’ got it right in their song ‘Mystery Cloud‘, when they sampled Philosopher Alan Watts, who you will recognise from my previous post.
The joy of not knowing the meaning of life is finding it. It’s not a goal that you list in your ‘5 year plan’ and you’ve been pursuing it since you took your first breath how many ever million minutes ago that was. It’s not a formula, nor is it a simple sentence as we are made out to believe. It’s a culmination of things.
It combines the best and worst of life, it is a combination of things, all the moments, nuances, anomalies, subtleties, tragedies, smiles, plus many more loaded adjectives that bewilder my mind right now. This is the fun part, the daily pursuit of it!
Now please, i’m not using this as an opportunity to tell you how to live your life, far from it, it would be unprofound for me to offer you any advice towards your own discovery, or to cliche you with just ‘live every day like it’s your last’.
If you think you know what the meaning of life is or even have an understanding of what it is, then great! Just don’t tell us, all you should do is write it down on a blog alluding to the fact that you have some general idea and then keep living your life as awesomely as you have before you read this…
‘Better to have a short life that if full of what you like doing, then a long life spent in a miserable way’
No truer words spoken by British Philosopher Alan Watts.
