Obviously I've been in the mood for introspection these last couple of days. And I think that introspection is important in the environmental realm, because we must prioritize the use of resources. We must decide what our limited resources are best used for.
That requires introspection.
Because to know what our resources should be used for we should know something about what our lives should be used for. After all, shouldn't resources be used to fulfill the true purposes of our lives? So what is our true purpose?
Perhaps in answer, someone said to me today:
You are here to be happy.
What I'd like us to discuss is whether or not you believe that is true. Is the reason you are here on this earth to achieve your happiness? And by the way, what, actually, does that mean?
Let's talk. Let's discuss. What could possibly be more important to figure out? Please leave your comments here on the blog by scrolling down to the bottom of this post and clicking on "comments." You will see a form into which to enter your thoughts.
