The Meaning of Life

Today I got touched by a friends more or less desperate pursuit for reasons for her misery. A cry-out to the world seeking for answers.

There are none.

Isn't it so? Whenever we have doubts, when we are sad, lost, alone ... we seek for the reasons and the answers everywhere but the place where we could actually find them. Within ourselves.

I truly believe, and that I have in common with a very holy person - the Dalai Lama, "The reason for everything and the answers to all questions are in us!" Deep inside we know, just need to find a way to get there.

No, I am no buddhist, I am a Christian Protestant from the Church of Martin Luther, although he hasn't seen me for a while in his home. But that is not the issue. The thing is, that it is time that we realize that the time has come to take responsibility for ourselves. Stop blaming the world for your life, for what you have or mainly for what you don't have. And most of all, be happy!

We have so many reasons to be happy but no, we spent hours blaming our swimsuit that we cannot swim, or the boss for our bad paycheck or politicians for everything else that is wrong. No, stop doing that and start seeing the beauty that surrounds us - everywhere!

But you will only see it when you realize, that if you cannot swim, than because you didn't try hard enough and when you don't make as much money as your neighbor, maybe it is because you didn't study that extra lesson or you don't work that extra hour or you, you, you. It is not them, it is you.

I don't say that to make you feel even more misery or think that you are a looser, not at all. I say that because when you realize, than you have the chance to change it and to make your life be just the way you want it to be! It's never to late to become whatever you want to be. You just have to know the rules and to do whatever is necessary to get there, and when you do, you will!

There is one thing though that makes your dream-come-true even faster:


Be kind to you and be kind to others. Actually be kind to everything and anything and everyone. And the more kindness you give, the more you will receive and the more open your eyes will become, to see ...

You know that chapter in the Bible where they say that Jesus made that blind man see and the crippled one walk? Well, I believe that this is what they were talking about. Take responsibility, stop blaming others, take your life in your own hands and go for it. Be happy! Start you day with a friendly good morning life and go from there. Don't let circumstances take your attention away from your goal and be K I N D !!!

And soon, very soon you'll get back. More than you ever dreamed of.

Start now ... 

Scare away all bad things in your life and be happy!
