Without a Human purpose we are not yet Human!

Question from the Internet:

“What is the purpose of being alive? .. I don’t enjoy any activity, I don’t like people, I have no ambition, and I see that the life is pointless. I mean even if I had purpose for living, then I will work for it, achieve it… And then what! Nothing.”

They say that a problem shared is a problem halved. I suspect that doesn’t alleviate your present anguish but more and more people are feeling aimless, can’t find any purpose in their lives which feels empty.

This was highlighted even more during the quarantine and with the inability to escape the sense of emptiness through the usual solutions of going on holiday, immersing into the “circus and bread” brainwash as everything slowed down became scarce.

The usual goals, purposes that center around the usual, instinctive desires of food, sex, family, and especially the socially generated desires of wealth, control, fame and knowledge will fade into the background or settle on the level of necessities.

In truth we have been on real drugs or addicted to everything that can take our mind of the totally aimless, artificial, inhumane life we have been living for a very long time, living like zombies, blindly producing and consuming goods and services we are told to covet, want.

At this stage we don’t even exist as Human beings as a truly Human existence is experienced through unique, purposefully, methodically built mutual Human connections which we have to learn how to do.

So my suggestion is to find a small, closed environment with like-minded people, who are also fed up with this pointless, aimless “life” we pursue in the general society, who are ready to learn how to become “truly Human”, experiencing “Human existence” through our mutual connections.

The virus infection, restrictions and worsening crisis will remove everything we used so far to numb, dumb us, so the sense of lack of meaning, purpose in life will only worsen.

We won’t have any other option to solve, escape this terrible emptiness, but through making efforts towards a “truly Human” existence with the help of a special, purposeful and practical educational method.

Only together, through our connections will we be able to locate and fulfill a higher, all-encompassing Human meaning, purpose that will be able to attract us forward.
