What should we start the day with?

Question from the Internet:

“How would you like your day to start? In matters of planning, desire, confession, action, expectation, communication, agenda, education, and will?”

Most of us are living our lives totally aimlessly.

I mean, we all have plans, and we have clear expectations about our day going, but do we actually have an overall direction or purpose beyond simple day-to-day survival?

Do we see beyond the next day, the next week, or beyond the next holiday we are planning so we can “get away from it all”?

Maybe there are some “important people” who have to create a plan and goal for a large company, a sports team, or even a country. But does that truly define their lives?

What is our actual purpose in life, and who do we live with? Why are we called “human beings” as opposed to other animals that are hardly any different from us?

We know that we do not actually see the world around us, but we see only what our own inherently egocentric and subjective consciousness and perception projects “around us.” We know that we do not see other people as they are, but how our self-serving and self-justifying filters show us.

Do we want to know what actual reality — beyond the Matrix of our ego — looks and feels like? Do we want to know what was there before we became conscious of this “physical life” and what will be when this physical consciousness ceases?

In short, I think we all should start the day by focusing on our life’s purpose, on the purpose of being a human being. Without such an overall purpose, our lives have no direction; we can’t measure success or failure. And this is why we need drugs, 24/7 activities, and the overwhelming “circus and bread” to numb and dumb ourselves so this very pressing question about “why we are actually living?” would not attack us from all sides.

But we can’t escape this question, and we won’t become actually Human until we answer it. This is why we need a special, purposeful, and practical “Human” education, so we would finally unlock our true potential, and we would reach the goal and purpose we are supposed to reach — according to Nature’s evolution.
