Man's Search for Meaning...Wow...


So I have finished two books since last week "A Song Flung up to Heaven" by Maya Angelou and "Man's Search For Meaning" by Viktor E. Frankl. Man's Search for Meaning is now in my top 5 books of all time. It has reinforced some beliefs I have had all along and opened my mind to new ones. I have never been one to search for the cookie cutter tell me exactly what is the purpose of life type of question rather I have taken from each experience a new lesson revealed about my self and thought this would take me to a higher plane of existence. What really touched me is being exposed to the holocaust stories reflecting each of the theories presented. Most especially when one decides to give up thus ensuring what has been their fear all along, I am not cut from this cloth. I understand why a little better now having basically experienced my own personal slavery/holocaust for the better part of 18 years I had to believe in something Greater to not only survive but thrive. Since I did not know Love as a child I had to believe that there was an Omnipotent Love that existed in which I was being protected. I also understand that when I made the statement "Everything in my life is worth it's weight in Gold even my thoughts and words." I meant that with every fiber of my being because without that belief and guide my life would be a polar opposite of what it is today.

I AM
