It hit me while studying, inspired by a great book I love.
Let’s say our existence exists into two plans – TIME and SPACE.
Time. We live like 100 years if we’re really healthy and lucky. This is 2012. Can you imagine how 100 years go by? Hard, I guess. Very well. How about 1000 years, when they were fighting with swords and spears and being a knight was the supreme manhood?
Let’s turn it up. 10 000 years ago – the agriculture revolution was born. Not such an intelligent choice, but nevertheless. Can you imagine 10 000 years?
2 milion years ago. We weren’t human, we were monkeys. How would 2 milion years look like?
2 BILION years. Earth was just forming. Put yourself in time back then.
Now get back here. You’re 2 bilion years from that point. And that’s just the time that we’re AWARE of as a specie.
Space. We’re HERE. In a country. Can you imagine how big the country is?
On a continent. America. Europe, whatever. Fucking huge. Can you imagine it?
Earth. Fuck. A lot of water and mud along with some ants that call themselves human.
The Milky Way (if you don’t watch the news, that’s our galaxy). We, as a PLANET, are just a spit on the street compared with the rest.
Then the milky way is a bubble from that spit that’s on the street that’s the Universe.
So we’re less that a dot. We’re a million of a million part of a dot. And if we’d see time as a 24h day and assuming it’s 12 o’clock, we became human at 11:55.
Pop-Quiz: How do you feel?
(I DO have a point here, you know. Not just fucking uselessly with your brains.)
The points is we’re kind of… meaningless. I hate this word. WE, MEANINGLESS?! IMPOSSIBLE! But if you look at the greater scheme of things, we count very little, if all. Sure, we can be the president of Terra but on a Universal scale, who gives a shit?
How do you like THAT as a perspective?
Hold on. Don’t jump. I don’t wanna go to a dark place where I’m the girly one and has the roundest ass just because you thought there’s no point to life.
Most would crumble. Yes, life is meaningless. Zero. 0. Nada. But as any thing, it was a good part and a dark part. Look, I’m not the only mad one out there:
I would usually go very mad hearing this. All my life I’ve been trying to find ‘life’s purpose’ and some deep spiritual shit that actually doesn’t exist.
So life is meaningless… what do we make of it? Well… heck, if it’s blank why don’t we do ANYTHING WE WANT with it, right? I mean… it’s ours, right? Why not GO WILD AND DO WHATEVER GOES THROUGH THAT SICK MIND OF YOURS?! (can you feel the feeling? It’s called SUPREME FREEDOM)
Hold that thought. Then why the fuck are you miserable right now? Yeah, YOU, the one reading this.
I had an epiphany. EVERYTHING we do is because we want to FEEL good. Where FEEL GOOD = love, helping someone, building a business, killing someone (oops, sorry), etc.
Think about it. Why do you want to build a business? To enjoy freedom, of course! Why do you want to study and become a hot-shot-whatever? To feel secure, have money (=freedom) and be proud of yourself, while maybe helping others. Why would you exercise? To lose weight, look like Suzanna, attract other sex-appealing people, etc. TO FEEL GREAT!
Check it out with your consciousness. Really. Now. Am I right or are you an alien from Mars that lives on hatered, grief and sorrow?
Sure, you hate dieting. You hate ‘working’. You hate not achieving your goals, even though you worked so hard. But that depends on YOUR EXPERIENCE, the experience in your head. That alone. Life does whatever it wants. The only power we have is on ourselves.
So why so tense, anyway? Every time we see a gourgeos woman we tense up instead of relaxing and going with the flow. At every thought of failure for your next project, why do you get your knees at chest-level like a baby?
You get tense because you think that you won’t get what you want. Hence, you won’t feel the way you wanted. But as you’re reading this you realize – I feel the way I CHOOSE. Sure, there are automatic responses. Watch them and they will go. Then you can feel whatever you want.
Bottom line – LIFE’S MEANING IS TO ENJOY IT. FEEL GOOD FEELINGS!
Flo Rida – Good Feeling
It sounds so… hippy. But it isn’t. You can enjoy it by helping the poor, drinking alcohol or having satisfaction in bringing misery to those around you. And I had to stay 30 minutes to get to this conclusion by logic and intuition.
Life is meaningless. We create meaning. Meaning can be happiness or sorrow, however we choose. But if WE CAN CHOOSE, why not make it a crazy&beautiful ride? Why not treat YOUR LIFE as a temple rather than as a trashcan?
The Take-Away: Life is so short and tiny if you look at it from a bigger perspective. It really doesn’t matter. All it matters is that you make the most of it. (or if you really insist, just stay on the couch for the rest of your life)
