If I write an answer, "= 100" on the screen, and ask you what the question is? You might give a universal response because several equation for endless possibilities can result in 100. But this particular 100 is the answer to a specific question which makes it unique from another 100. In fact, if the whole world is a class, it’s possible for 7 billion students to discover 7 billion questions that lead to 100.
Dear protégé, you are an Answer! But you must discover the specific question to which you’re applicable. You are a solution, you must discover the specific problem to which you’re applicable. Meaningfulness in life depends on finding the components that culminated in you. Until you find the composites and how operand relates with operator in your individual wiring, I’m afraid life may be meaningless.
Take a look at these emotional reactions – being concerned about an issue, getting angry at situations, being moved to tears, being inspired. What situation induces each of these emotion in you? Identify the stimuli. Which one has become a recurring pattern? Identify that situation that has always been eliciting one or a combination of those emotion in you.
Now, confirm if that situation and emotion get you to the point of imagination, where you envision yourself there turning things around. Can you confirm that? If not, check with another situation which has been capable of moving you, and generating video clips of ideal state of affairs due to your imaginary intervention. Are you there now? fine! Now take it further…
Write down what you have gotten so far. Remember, dear protégé, we are in the process of finding the questions to which you’re the answer so as to live meaningfully and enjoy fulfillment.
This is the most important aspect of this discussion. Now, classify the role you’ve been playing in that beautiful imagination of yours into types of problem you’re solving. Is it problems of hunger, safety, malnutrition, poverty, difficulty or complexity of getting things done, ignorance, sickness/disease, oppression, racism, disasters, mortality, or what have you? Then conceptualize the solution-providing role you’ve been playing into a field of endeavor depending on the needs or opportunities that exist within your environment.
Every society, no matter how developed has a need, and those needs are your opportunities. It may present in terms of sustainability or crucial development indices. You must explore until you take a position in which you should thrive.
The Creator may graciously make known to us the Answer that we are, but it is the responsibility of the creation to discover and deploy themselves in the peculiar questions of life. In the pursuit lies our destiny, the Answer is only a confirmation constant. I hope you see what I mean!
I will see you at the top!
