So Hi, I'm back with another short piece for my "Life" story philosophies. As I said, "philosophies" that's what this "Life one-shots" is going to be composed of. Philosophies behind life; love, hate, jealousy, anger and several other human emotions along with the overall life outlook I personally have on it. This will express my own personal philosophies of life; a chance to be heard in a manner of speaking.
Life is filled with so many mysteries. Some of those mysteries take the shape of question into our reality. One of the many question to life is "Why do we exist? What is the purpose of our existence within this world if we're to simply die out at some point?"
I thought I had come up with an answer to that. Would you like to know? I will tell you.
My answer is to leave a legacy behind for others to remember you by. But then I realized something, that answer is only applicable to the human world. What about the rest of the world, humans aren't the only thing which live on Earth. There are other creatures; I realized I was looking at this question from too broad of a perspective. To somehow try and truly answer this question, we have to expand our method of thinking, our method of outlook on life. I have to expand my perspective, to the point where I can perceive the nature of this world through Mother Nature itself. Only by looking through her eyes can I truly find a meaning to our, to my existence in this world. I don't wish to follow the same life patterns as other people would, I don't wish to live my life like others; who simply live it to be happy, find achievements in their life and to be loved. I wish to be different, I want to be different from your average human and be extraordinary. I want to see humans and their existence from a whole new light.
Perhaps this is just my ego talking at the time, but isn't life worth living if you live for something more than just average? I ponder this question every waking moment of my life as I try to search answers to the many mysteries of life. I know I still have yet to grow a lot in my beliefs; I still have yet to expand my philosophies before being able to answer the question.
What's the question again?
It's, why do we exist? What is the real meaning behind our existence?
Other animals are here to serve basic functions within nature to help prosper it. They help control the population of many different species, and they grow through reproduction. Their lifestyle benefits both them and Mother Nature. But humans, they are different. They have deviated from their instincts and the path Mother Nature had created for them. They have learnt to destroy her, so we who once were part of that cycle now destroy it, what meaning is there to our existence really? Are we simply trying to survive now? Are just destroying to fulfill our thirst for violence and destruction? Why? Why? Why?
Why are humans such creatures that they wished to defy what they were made for? Why are we so that we defy the meaning for our existence we once had? Why are we what we are? Why do we exist?
I don't know...I just don't know right now. Perhaps throughout my journey through life I may have the honor of discovering the answers to these life mysteries. But right now, I don't know...as I'm right now, I will never find out if I remain as I am. I will never find the answers if I do not learn to de-attach myself from the average and from the human nature which so binds me to average. Human nature makes us human, but it creates for so many mysteries; all I want are answers, if there is anyone who knows. Please then, please tell me...as I sure don't have one, thinking about this every moment I spend awake...and I still don't have one. Though I will keep on searching, I will change to widen my perspective, I will change to find the answers I seek. I will answer these questions someday, perhaps it may not be today, but I will do so before my death. Else I won't be able to rest so peacefully in my sleep, else I will never be satisfied with my life as it is, and answers are the only thing which will calm this raging mind with questions.
So, what is the meaning of our existence?
I'll find the answer to it even if I must ponder it for the rest of my life.
What did you think? Do you have your own philosophies on this subject? Then go ahead and put them in the review section, it would be interesting to see everyone else's outlook on the concept of human existence.
