    Today in the afternoon I suddenly felt very

    depressed, slow movement, pondering, reading few pages of my book in a far out field, just overwhelming melancholy. I feel very unsatisfied, but I still find beauty in Nature and the like. When will I finally be free of everything? I want and feel like running out of impulse far...

    The cost of having been born is

    that we all will die. The challenge then, is to live a life that will be worth dying for.

    I think God put us all here to find our souls.

    Since Adam and Eve ate the apple all souls were lost. So He sent us on earth put different religions as guidelines to find your soul and once u find your soul you won't need that guideline you become at peace inside. Religion is just a guideline to finding yourself, I've found...

    I was just thinking about my childhood,

    and how I was always really different. The teachers didn't like it, they said I acted up too much... among other things... What did they do? Put me on the drug Ritalin. I wasn't on it long, but teachers continued to alienate me, and when I should have been proud of being...

    How you feel about yourself determines the

    course of your entire life. If you stop and think about that for a minute you realize how true that really is

    I feel believing in a religious way of life is

    giving yourself over to a number of things you can never actually know, see or feel. The deceptions of religious belief are varied but essentially they turn the mind to mush, I feel. There is more to life than just that which meets our eyes on the base level. Too many people...

    For most of my life I have been the type to

    question things, wonder and think 'out the box' or in another way of putting it. I have been able to cast my mind outside this 'cage' that is created by those around us, society, so called leaders and more. I'm not saying I hate thinking like others nor am I saying that I have...

    Well I believe God created life

    for a reason and it's a reason I've wondered most if my life and it's why did God create life. Perhaps he was lonely, maybe to give him something to do, or even possibly for his own entertainment. I won't know until I go to heaven but I want to know before I go so that I can...

    Motivation And Influences

    In all fairness, the biggest negative influence in my life was myself. Going as far back as high school, I gave up on sports because I believed I sucked at all of them. Now I know I wasn't an all star athlete, but I was a smoker that never exercised and ate like **** - that's...

    For me, the deeper meaning of life I'm finding

    out and learning is that life is all about others. Really caring for other people, those in need, those hurting, those feeling trapped and alone. Our culture is so egocentric, I for one have trouble seeing the needs of others, and then knowing what I can do to help. I have to...

    At home I was always a rebel against my heritage

    and our religion and I didn't truly get it. I got involved with several men, some much older than myself because of my need to find something true and physical, and in that have the fulfillment we all crave in life, but it was just a form of self destruction. At university I...

    You can never truly be ready

    for life because of lack of experience. So you have to experience things, good and bad, to make your judgments on life.Yes there is a deeper meaning. For the Jewish people they have long focused on things a prince of theirs learned in Egypt. Then we are told of another prince of...

    I used to think I'd lost myself somewhere along

    the way and then I realised I hadn't, I'd just misplaced some unspent youth and am now finding it again one fractured piece of soul at a time. A deeper meaning of life is sort, a deeper meaning is found, something glitters amongst the wreckage of life, something that's...

    Death, it is a main factor in our lives.

    In my opinion, death is the center of many things in human life and society, like the principle of “carpe diem” (enjoy the present because tomorrow is uncertain). It also feeds the emotions, love (the need for someone to complete our meaning of existence), liberty (explore...
