Practicing mindfulness will also open doors in your life that would otherwise remain closed forever.
- ” Who am I? “,
- ” What am I doing here in this world? “,
- ” What is the meaning of life? “,
- ” What do I want in life and what is meant for me? “
These are questions we have all had at some point. Unfortunately, such questions also disappear for most people. Most of the time these existential questions come back from time to time in different phases of your life. Looking closely at such questions makes us look at locked doors that can be opened. A door that leads to more self-examination and self-realization. It’s an opportunity to understand life better and to know how we can live our lives more easily. Unfortunately, most people leave this door closed and don’t even try to turn the door handle.
There can be several reasons for not taking this opportunity. We do not find out the answer and in turn these questions will disappear naturally over time. Another reason could be that we settle with an answer that is based on our own assumption, knowledge or preference without real contemplation or self-examination. You may also not want to look at these kinds of questions at all.
When I was younger and asked adults those questions, I often got replied with: ‘Pfff, you are asking me too complicated questions right now.’ And they didn’t give me any answer, which implied that they had never dwelled on what I think is one of the most important questions in our lives.
