life’s just what you want it to be.

22 Mar

The ago-old question rings again: “What is the meaning of life?” In the above picture (which I found on the internet), “life’s whatever you want it to mean.” First impression: what a careless, carefree answer!
After reading the message on the picture, without thinking twice, I flung it into the trash at the backstage of my mind. But on second though I began to see what I could actually learn from it. So I got the picture back from the trash and saw just how it’s message was true.

Is life really whatever you want it to mean?

My answer’s YES.
God made us free moral agents. We decide our paths. Even though our Creator would like to hold us by the hand and lead us in the right paths, He still allows us choose what we want (and we’re fully responsible for the actions we take). He gave us a mind. He gave us a will. We’re so different from robots who have been programmed to act based on a limited set of instructions. This is the sense in which we determine what we call our own destiny. It’ll be stupid of anyone to think his destiny’s so fixed he has no role to play in determining what becomes of him and therefore he can live and act recklessly. Since, by the sum total of your actions and thoughts, you determine what your life and what it’s meaning is, I’ll maintain a YES on the question: Is life really whatever you want it to be? YES and YES. Determined by how you live it.

Life is what you make of it. If you seek life’s meaning in all the wrong places, it could translate to mean you reflexly want life to be meaningless. If you seek God (who has the answer to our questions about life’s true meaning), it means you reflexly want your life to be meaningful.

    “God made us free moral agents. We decide our paths. Even though our Creator would like to hold us by the hand and lead us in the right paths, He still allows us choose what we want (and we’re fully responsible for the actions we take). He gave us a mind. He gave us a will.” – I like that

    However, there is so much conditioning in our world and in our society, there are so many false expectations from people, there are so many things like media, corporations, politics that per-condition you and form a habit of “blaming everything on destiny.” The power of choice is not believed by many… Perhaps if God gave us mind and He gave us will, He also should give us awareness into our true selves. And if he hasn’t granted all of us with it, perhaps those who have it, should be continuously shining the light and enabling other to be aware and not just open there eyes but actually see all the paths and all the choice the can make to build a life they want.

      Plain truth Storyteller. We who feel we have this awareness shouldn’t be silent about the truth. Our voices should ring loud and clear. Our light should shine bright in a dark world.

      Cheers sis.
