Seeking Meaning

Additional Joseph Campbell books

I am still seeking employment or self-employment that will fulfill my desire to use my skills and education to help the environment, people, and animals.  This morning I searched on the internet for “seeking the meaning of life”.  I came across a website “Peace Legacy” that quotes Joseph Campbell, “Life has no meaning.  Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life.  It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.”

“You are the answer” that is a lot to think about.  In all the self-help books, life coaches, seminars, etc.  it is all about looking within.  What do you want?  What are you passionate about?  Even though I have read numerous of those self-help books and read websites of “life coaches”, it does not seem to make a dent or help me in anyway.

I know that I have to get out of my own way, that I must face whatever fears I have and move forward.  Yes I have read that and heard that and I have reached out to align with people that I think are interested in forming some type of alliance.  Nothing has happened.

Are people afraid to make a new connection?  Are they afraid someone might push them to take action?  What ever the reason it makes me wonder what I am doing wrong?  I think when I approach people that we can get some action going that could result in a positive direction for all of us but maybe I am too hopeful.  I try not to be pushy, I listen to their views and after some more talking and listening I think okay let’s move on and get things going.  Instead it is like slow motion, one step at a time.  I am the impatient one I want things to happen now.   My mother always said to me, “Be patient.”  Okay I’m waiting…..
