Feeling Lost In Life

Being consistently patient is a difficult task for many people, because we often seek immediate results and new opportunities for fun and adventures times. Whenever you find yourself leading a repetitive life, you scratch your head even harder, hoping to find more meaning in life.

You may find yourself searching for meaning by meditating, consuming psychedelic drugs such as DMT, psilocybin or LSD, attending church or performing intensive internet searches; some people even join cults. There is nothing wrong with searching for meaning, but you should do it in a natural manner.

By natural, this means that you should not be forcing yourself to search for meaning. Whenever you are forcing yourself, it’s usually out of boredom, non-satisfaction with life or feeling empty inside. These scenarios do not usually lead to new meanings; you often end up back at square one.

Naturally searching for meaning is when you are leading a productive and satisfactory life: you are enjoying your job; are happy with yourself; have friends to socialize with; are close to your family, etc. When you find yourself searching for more meaning during these times, you will often find it naturally without actually looking for it.

This occurs because you are not actually directing your attention to finding new meaning; you are too busy enjoying your life. As with many things in life, we often receive a new opportunity or meet a new person when we least expect it. If you learn to accept this fact, it will become much easier for you to discover new meaningful ideas, without experiencing a frustrating and disappointing journey.
