I was once asked by a member if I ever got depressed, because I always seem so happy. No, I'm not, and right now is one of those moments.
What's the point of it all? Life? Relationships? Before I go into some depressing, cynical rant, I want to hear other perspectives.
Objectively speaking, there's no point to anything; Life has no objective meaning. It simply is. However, the purpose is to use your allotted time to derive some level of meaning to the your existence, which is something which can and usually even be done on the most simplistic level (be it something as trivial as the sensory; indulging in taste, enhancing one's skill set, building a family/legacy)
Even happiness is fleeting. And notice, while we are pursuing happiness, we are unhappy. So the very pursuit of happiness causes unhappiness.
a duality of nature. The pushing for happiness personifies what is unhappy about your current life, maybe. But everything can be evolved until near perfection, and then evolved some more, since a state of absolute perfection is complety subjective goal (and the nature of nature is infinite in both - and + direction so you can keep constructing for happiness until infinity), you can always reach for something more. When trying to attain the happiness, keep your thoughts relative to the happiness and the law of attraction will naturally make you happy.
I'm not really sure how to answer that question, Antimony.
However, I feel that this kind of circular downward spiraling thinking that leads to the question "What's the point?" is probably ...
what's the word? ...
Seems to be indicative of a mentally unhealthy state overall.
I think happy minds seem to have blocks in them that prevent them from even caring or answering with something broad.
"The point is to make a point!" or "There is no point!" or. "God!" (Moves on with their lives.)
I'm not saying, "don't ask that question!"
I just think that for whatever reason it is emotionally unnatural or difficult for brains to take on that question.
Unless you are doing it for some academic/ intellectual purpose in which case there will never be a set answer... You have to convince yourself of a set answer.... You have to believe in something. (Even if the "belief" of "something" to believe in "nothing.") Or just be open to many possibilities of what "something" is.
I for one tend to spiral down that path only when very depressed, otherwise I can happily glaze over and think of something else.
