The Holidays & Our Search for Meaning


The last time many people took the time to ponder philosophical questions, such as: “What’s the meaning of life?;” “What values do I cherish?;” “What shall I do with my life?” — it’s likely they were with their college buddies, high on pot, contemplating the meaning of life, love, sex, truth, peace and more.

What a luxury it now seems to have the leisure to sit around to ponder the meaning of life. For once you are immersed in the business of life – earning a living, raising a family, maintaining a residence – it’s easy to shy away from reflecting on your philosophy of life. This typically results in feeling empty, alienated and without purpose despite being constantly busy, rushing around doing things.

A philosophy of life is not just for philosophers. It’s for all of us. Knowing what you believe in creates a sense of purpose. It is also a moral compass so that we don’t feel lost when we need to make difficult decisions or deal with trying times.

  1. Interesting article; however, the ONLY way anyone is going to find meaning for their own lives is to seek God & Jesus through prayer, reading God’s Word (the Bible), & applying godly principles to their daily lives. You simply can’t find fulfillment, or the answers to the meaning of life by looking towards people, things, etc. to bring you fulfillment that ONLY God can provide. That’s how you find meaning for life. :)
