Alleycat pointed out that life is meaningless somehow in his reply to Johnnie’s lonelyness.
I come to thinking that I’d better start a new thread that ponders the meaning of life. We’re all dead by then when we understand life:)
Back in 1999, I was on a praise worship in Palawan, Philippines. Reps from all over the world, all walks of life, all size and age, all colors and races met in a Jungle in Palawan Island.
I was lucky to be there and share thoughts with many complete strangers. We quickly became good buddy and share thoughts about life.
There’s this Indian guy that suggest life is about learning. It’s like once bitten twice shy, we learn from our past mistakes.
He suggested that I take notes of each decision I made in my life and the result of the decisions. In the long run, I can go back to the and review the chronicles and by doing so, understand myself better.
The first step to understand life is to understand yourself. I think the second is to understand the mother nature. The Chinese saying goes “Zhi ji zhi bi, bai zhan bai zhong - Know thyself and thy enemy, hundred of war, hundred of victory”.
I might say…I still ponder at the meaning of life now…
