For many people, to be is to be what we call ego. The ego exists on the basis of purpose and reason, but purpose and reason are made up ideas to give the illusion of meaning which gives a sense of existence. Who doesn’t want to exist without meaning? The answer to our age old question may have been staring us in the face since the question was first asked, maybe there is no reason outside of the thing itself. Maybe we just haven’t been satisfied with that answer or willing to accept it so we continue searching for some ultimate and final answer. We will continue making religions and fighting with anyone who disagrees until we accept the answer we knew all along. THERE IS NO PURPOSE. THERE IS NO MEANING.
Take a deep breath, it’s ok, in fact it’s better than ok. If this is the case and all we’re left with is the blank canvas of the infinite present then all we have to do is pick a purpose we feel worth living for. What is a purpose worth living for? There is no wrong answer, it’s up to you to decide.
