Do you crave meaning? (Part 2)
How do we understand our world? When we experience things, do we base our understanding on ourselves?
If our meaning in life is based on our emotions, this meaning will always change. If our life is going well, life will seem great. If it’s not, it’ll seem terrible. This is why finding real meaning in life requires more than just me. It has to be grounded in something or someone else; and this “something” must be entirely, totally, 100% trustworthy. Otherwise, with nothing to ground us, we’re constantly trying to stand firm in mid-air.
In this video (part 2 of 2, see the first part here), author Erwin McManus explores some of the ideas found in his book, Soul Cravings. Here he focuses on how to have a firm foundation on which to be confident, even when our experience in the world doesn’t seem to make sense. We encourage you to watch, and explore our Soul Cravings website if you’re interested in learning more.
Do you identify with longing for meaning in life? Have you been searching for a way to feel grounded, only to discover the things of this world are more like shifting sand than solid ground? Feel free to contact us by email if you’d like to share your thoughts.
