Is There an Absolute Truth About Living?
Today there is an abundance of information, which sometimes falls into excess. If you don't believe it, all you have to do is spend some time on any social network. Among so much information, it is very easy to feel confused, especially if you try to find something that gives meaning and direction to your existence. Therefore, it is very important that from a young age, you learn to decide what you believe in and for what reason. Do you believe what you read online only because some influencers said it? What do you consider correct or incorrect? Do you think there is some kind of absolute morality? Remember that different cultures have different customs. What is considered normal in your country could be considered an aberration in another.
What do religions know about the meaning of life?
Different religions offer different visions of what it is that the human being came into the world for. And although all of them have as a general rule a message of union and peace, they also differ greatly in certain points. That is why, many atheists around the world affirm that sticking to some doctrine of the religious type is not, and never will be, one of the most appropriate ways of approaching "the truth" about life. Because in the end, each of those religions will show you different truths, which in the end, could leave you even more confused.
Life is unpredictable
It might sound a little cruel to you, but the truth is that it seems as if life, many times, is ready to laugh at your plans. When you think you're totally sure of something, something unexpected happens and all your plans fall apart in a matter of minutes. So what absolute truth can you find in something as volatile as life itself? Is there any “ultimate truth in life”? What is left for us not to think that this existence is an absurd and total void? There might be some answers.
Do what you love and try to be happy
It doesn't matter if you make a lot of money, if you dedicate yourself to something you hate, you will feel in hell. The same thing happens if you are in a relationship with someone who does not value you. Although it may be difficult for you through certain situations in life, always try to be honest with yourself and with what you believe in. At the end of the day, if you are not happy in what you do, it is very likely that you feel that there is no point in existing. Forget what other people think and focus on being happy.
Try to be good and have a clear conscience
I don't mean that you try to become a saint. Simply try not to do to others what you would not like them to do to you. Nothing compares to having a clear conscience at the end of the day knowing that, at least on purpose, you didn't hurt anyone. "But what if others hurt me?" You might ask. Well, just let go of that resentment. Life, God, karma or whatever you believe in, will take care of doing justice if someone was unfair to you or tried to hurt you. Do not dim the light of your soul with feelings as dark as revenge. Learn to live in the present so that you can understand that the damage they tried to do to you belongs to the past.
Learn that to live there is no defined recipe
You can make thousands of plans, but as mentioned earlier in this article, they can crumble in a matter of seconds. Do not stress for that reason, it is part of the changing nature of life itself. Also, remember that it does not matter what the media, your family or social networks tell you. Only you know what it is that can make you really happy. So: Is there an absolute truth in life? You could say yes, and it's the one you choose. Your truth about what you are and what fills your soul. Never let someone tell you that you are living very fast or very slowly. Your own rhythm is perfect.
