“Man’s search for meaning is the primary motivation in his life and not a ‘secondary rationalization’ of instinctual drives” (Viktor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning, page 99).
Is life a search for meaning in the meaningless flow of events? For most of us, I guess life is a daily grind. We try to do what we need to do to keep our life going. And that is not going to change. But we need something, something more than the occasional big weekend or Christmas or Super Bowl. And that is why we have addictions. Humans love the euphoria.
A butterfly flitted in front of me. Could that mean anything? What did it say? The traffic cleared for me. I remembered to do something just in time. How do these things happen? Does it mean anything? Yes, if you stop and think about it.
Meaning comes from an appreciation of non-obvious occurrences. Appreciation is needed, in the quiet of your prayer place, to see the meaning. Real love is subtle. Joy can be eternally found within, not of this world. Allow joy inside and it will resonate to meaning for the outside.
“Meaning comes from an appreciation of non-obvious occurrences. Appreciation is needed, in the quiet of your prayer place, to see the meaning. Real love is subtle.” THis is a good reflection. Words I will carry for a while.
