True self-realization

Question from the Internet:

“What can you do that others cannot do to save the world?”

I can provide my unique, individual and irreplaceable cogwheel role in the system nobody else can. We are all existing in a dully interconnected, mutually integrated and totally interdependent living system.

Whether we know about it or not, we are all but single cells or cogwheels in this vast system, and we all have crucially important, mutually responsible, and mutually complementing roles and functions only we can fulfil.

The meaning of our lives is to consciously and purposefully study the system and ourselves until we find our most optimal role and purpose for the whole and fulfil it.

Then, when we all reach such a state, we also reach our individual and collective purpose in life as determined by nature’s evolutionary plan.

Until we reach such a state, we continue to suffer and aimlessly drift from here to there; we blindly repeat all our previous mistakes and crimes — both individually and collectively — since we have no idea why we were born and what we are supposed to do with our lives.

This is why the questions about the “meaning” and “purpose” of life are the most important awakenings and invitations from the “system” to start searching for and fulfilling the actual role we are born to take and fulfil in the whole cosmic Natural system.

This is true self-realization, and only this self-realization can bring us true and lasting satisfaction and happiness.
