The human body needs just four things: food, sleep, water, and sex.
Ever had all four and yet felt unhappy? Felt as if life was supposed to be more than what you had, you were supposed to be more than what you were?
Yeah, every single person on this Earth felt it at one point or another.
From a certain point of view, life has only one purpose: reproduction.
From another point of view, life is all about survival. To ensure survival, it has to adapt to changes in the environment, thus is has to evolve.
Could it be that, ultimately, life’s purpose was to create an individual, not only capable of adapting to its environment, but also capable of altering it if it need be?
Man was never designed to merely survive or adapt to his circumstances.
Man was designed to thrive.
Hence, this gnawing sense that life is supposed to be more.
Of course, most people try really hard to ignore this. They want comfort. Security. Safety. They get a job, get married, have kids. They hate Mondays, wait for Friday, wait for summer.
Man was designed to reach for the stars.
Failure to do so kills you every single day before you die.
What am I really saying?
That’s what we truly need.
To become better, to make the world around us better.
That’s what it means to be human.
Of course, most people don’t do this, because it’s easier not to.
But you should, and you must, spread your wings and learn to fly.
You’ll fall a couple of times, and, most probably, no one will bother to pick you up, because everyone’s too busy watching TV.
Man was designed for greatness.
He has to pay the price, of course. To walk down a road paved with suffering and pain.
At the end of it?
