MY SPARK OF GENIUS?
2.4 Seize Meaning Each Day.
You can’t find the meaning of life –
it never was lost!
Meaning never was something to be found in a philosophy, a religion, a belief system, or a way of life.
Rather, meaning is a psychological experience. And because it is a psychological experience, you can create it.
You can make all the meaning you need.
Meaning is a renewable resource and infinitely available.
Today a great many people are suffering in all of the following ways:
- They spend a lot of time going through the motions.
- They experience frequent bouts of boredom, anxiety and depression.
- They procrastinate and find themselves blocked.
- They can’t quite figure out where to invest their time and energy.
These are meaning problems that can go away when you make the radical paradigm shift from seeking meaning to making meaning and decide to invest meaning on a daily basis and seize meaning opportunities on a daily basis.
A meaning opportunity is any avenue that you guess might provoke the experience of meaning in you.
Our species regularly experiences all of the following as rich meaning opportunities: love and relationships; service and stewardship; good works and ethical action; excellence, achievement and career; experimentation, excitement and adventure; creativity and self-actualization; sensory stimulation and pleasure; and states of being like contentment and appreciation.
If you decide to make daily meaning investments and seize daily meaning opportunities you will never run short of meaning again!
