The Need for Meaning.

I don’t know—is it?

Sometimes, especially lately, I wonder if my need for meaning has made my life stale. Does this need to make everything mean something obstruct the flow of fully living? Is there a time for this and a time to just live?

What do you think?

  1. Reading your last few posts makes me wonder if you’re close to a major shift. Something which will clarify much, as well as make much more simply irrelevant.

    • Could this be the one and only Eric I know?
      Major shift? Boy- I’ve had several. But, yes clarity is heightened and so much is not important now.

  2. Sometimes I feel trying to find meaning in everything sort of distance us from just going with the flow…..when we try to find signs to prove something is ‘meant to be’ we fail to see the red flag warnings that tell us to just let it go…..
    This has been an ongoing struggle with me. I love the idea of positive signs and ‘meant to be’ but the reality is what always whispers in my head and then I just give up….
    Not sure if this is where you were going with this but there it is….

    • Yes- in a way it is. I’ve been internal for so long, which has been good. But I’ve been seeking my way out for some time now. I think “needing meaning” is one way to let go and just live.

  3. I think the meaning of life is to live it. I think this moment, this person, this activity, this seeing, this blog, this coffee — all this THIS, is exactly why I came into being. That is as phenomenal and miraculous as it is plain as day. LOVE
