When our body is not the be all and end all.
Listened while writing this post, try while reading it :o)
This post is the twenty fourth in a series reflecting on the meaning of life and the importance of this question. These posts should be read in the order they are published as, starting at the 6th for example, dear reader, will mean the whole thing makes no sense. Happy reading!
Welcome to the spiritual world! Did you know that in the era of Sumer it was the custom to gather together after work in pubs to eat and drink? What if I told you this was 4000 years ago?! This leads me to believe that our understanding of the meaning of life has not evolved very much at all since then. The main difference between us and our ancestors is the advancements in technology that we have made, and the knowledge we have attained which makes us who we are.
It’s not difficult to imagine that back then these people could be discussing the same sorts of issues that preoccupy us today- the latest news from one friend, the tale of another’s workplace accident or even the weather and the premature or delayed arrival of the seasons. Perhaps they entertained themselves by chatting about music, and singing songs or telling stories.
Returning to our own era, we can see that the definition of the meaning of life has changed very little since those days. We’ve agreed that we need not return to the discussion on our physiological needs and what gets us out of bed each morning, and instead we now focus on the ‘why?’
Until next time…
