In my search for reasoning to my being and existence, I have also learned that life is about 3 simple principles; creation, experience & love. By living by these 3 basic principles, you can help cultivate within you, your true potential as a living breathing being. If we are meant to walk in the steps of 'God', then do you not agree that these principles are exactly what 'God' is about?
We should live to create. Experience these creations and then no matter the out come, to love what we have created & experienced. The experiences are what helps us learn and grow so that other creations will be improved. This can be for creating music or art to creating friendships and relationships. Many of us are not aware that we create every day of our lives. Even if this person is not creative in a artistic sense does not mean they are not creating. We create everyday constantly.
Start taking the time to think about what you create daily and the experiences. Not only will you be able to have a better understanding of this insane place, but you will soon learn to see things from the perspectives of others and how they may have experienced different situations. Sometimes when I see an event, I will imagine what it must be like for those who experienced the event. I actually try to picture this event happening to me in the first person perspective. It really helps bring you down to earth and makes you feel grateful for what you may take for granted.
