The Bigger Picture

After my last blog post, someone suggested that being a member of an exclusive club of some sort would adequately meet the need to feel connected. However, I don’t think that is true. I believe that the deeper human need is to feel part of the whole, not part of a part of the whole! I believe there is a human longing to experience a connection to humanity.

Feeling part of an exclusive club of some sort gives us a pseudo feeling of connection, which is much better than feeling isolated, but it does not meet the deeper need of feeling part of a meaningful whole. Feeling that humanity functions in some mysterious way as a unit, gives us a deep sense of meaning and safety in life.

For this reason, it is most helpful for each person to figure out what the “bigger picture” is for their life, and how that fits into humanity’s bigger picture. What are you here to do? What is in you to do? When you figure that out, you will be significantly closer to understanding what life is all about, and what your part in it is.
