Quote by Henry David Thoreau: “However mean your life is, meet and live it; do...”
What is the Purpose of Life? - Sadhguru
The secret to a meaningful life is simpler than you think
This is one of the oldest philosophical questions. It has been posed in different ways—How should one live? Philosophers specialize in unpacking hidden complexities, and the concept of the good life is one of those that needs quite a bit of unpacking. So when we say someone is living well or that they have lived a good life, we may simply mean that they are a good person, someone who is courageous, honest, trustworthy, kind, selfless, generous, helpful, loyal, principled, and so on. They possess and practice many of the most important virtues. This moral conception of the good life has had plenty of champions. Socrates and Plato both gave absolute priority to being a virtuous person over all other supposedly good things such as pleasure, wealth, or power.
Some people seem to spend their whole lives dissatisfied, in search of a purpose. But philosopher Iddo Landau suggests that all of us have everything we need for a meaningful existence. The error is based on their failure to recognize what does matter, instead becoming overly focused on what they believe is missing from their existence. To my surprise, most of the people with whom I have talked about the meaning of life have told me that they did not think that their lives were meaningful enough. Many even presented their lives as outright meaningless. But I have often found the reasons my interlocutors gave for their views problematic. Many, I thought, did not pose relevant questions that might have changed their views, or take the actions that might have improved their condition.
The state that follows birth, and precedes death; the state of being alive and living. A status given to any entity including animals, plants, fungi, bacteria, etc. He gets up early in the morning, works all day long u even on weekends u and hardly sees his family. That's no life! Something which is inherently part of a person's existence, such as job, family, a loved one, etc.
