FIND OUT WHAT YOUR LIFE PURPOSE IS IN THIS ARTICLE!!!

First of all there is a big difference in knowing the purpose of your life in it’s entirety and knowing what the purpose of your life is in the here and now. The answer to the first purpose can be a philosophical one but the answer to the second is a practical here and now answer.

You may feel that the purpose or goal of your whole life is to help others, to lead a moral life, to make a lot of money, to change the world for the better, to obey a religious text, to survive, etc.

In the here and now your purpose or goal is to work at a job, eat and drink, have fun, lead a married life, live off of welfare, survive financially, work or study to become a hair dresser, electrician, lawyer, doctor, politician, etc.

If your purpose in life helps the needs or wants of other humans and makes them feel happy and secure then chances are that you also will benefit financially, socially, and maybe even spiritually. If your purpose in life is to make yourself happy at the expense of others then that is a possible purpose but not a very laudable selfish one.

What you are doing now is a purpose or goal and what you would like to do or love to do is sometimes a future goal or purpose. Since our life is in constant change for the most part your specific purposes or goals in life change as you age. General purposes such as living a moral life, socially interacting well, trying to conserve wilderness and wildlife, trying to make the world more peaceful, etc. are purposes which you may have an entire lifetime and dedicate some of your time, effort, and money trying to make the general purposes come true in the long duration.

Do you bemoan the fact that your life seems to have no purpose and the very thought depresses you? Think in terms of short range purposes or goals and long range purposes or goals and you will find that your life has plenty of purpose and that you can come up with more purposes or goals if you so desire! You’re not physically dead yet although you may feel mentally dead. For the mentally dead start reading some useful information and make that one of the here and now purposes in your life for a better life in the long duration!

You may be unhappy with your present job or career, unhappy with yourself, unhappy with your friends, unhappy with your marriage, unhappy with your lonely life, etc. If that is the case then train for or land a better job or career, improve yourself with useful selfeducation, find better friends to associate with, get a divorce, volunteer to do community service, etc.

If your life doesn’t seem to have good purposes or goals then change your purposes or goals. Yes, change is difficult and takes courage, dedication, and persistence so don’t be too surprised if you chose the easy way out and choose to continue your “purposeless” life or more accurately your old bad habits! Yes, a major key to happiness is changing to new and better habits and reducing or eliminating your old bad habits. It’s that simple yet hard to do. Best wishes. Uldis

WAYS YOU CAN DIFFER WITH YOUR FUTURE SPOUSE!!!

Before marriage it is always important to make sure that your views on morality are the same or that you trust each other, don’t lie, and believe in a monogamous relationship during marriage. Other things which are very important are your spending habits and whether you want to raise children. Agreeing on these major points is necessary for a good compatible marriage but there are other areas where commonality is not so important and may even be an antidote for a boring marital life. If you differ in these 8 general areas then it is no great reason for being overly concerned and it can result in a rather interesting marriage and not a dull one.

Different hobbies and interests are acceptable and with time and the sharing of experiences you may even become more interested in those differing hobbies and interests yourself. I had a scientific background and a great interest in technology, tools, and science and my wife was an artist interested in crafts, knitting, sewing, and dress making which I considered at first to basically be a waste of time, not a money maker, and basically boring trivia.

Over the years I made aesthetic evaluations based primarily upon how close to reality and nature the artistic items were. I was surprised that with time my tastes and spouse’s tastes became more alike and I developed a good sense of color, texture, etc. and became much better at evaluating artistic expressions and was surprised how often she asked me for advice, I gladly offered it, and we often agreed.

Different political beliefs are possible because one spouse will basically think that government should get involved in helping out humans in need and the other spouse may basically feel that humans should behave more responsibly and government help should only be used as a last resort. Let’s face it, establishment Republicans and Democrats basically believe in growing government and passing laws often favoring the rich and special interests even though they may claim publically that they are representing and addressing the needs of minorities, the poor, and middle class.

Sexual turn-ons may slightly differ in spouses and some may seem rather unusual and kinky. With time and having sex the same basic way very often you may eventually try doing some of that kinky stuff as a change of pace and find out that it is not that bad after all and perhaps perfectly acceptable. After all, pleasing one another sexually can be important even though some of the desired variations may take a little effort and perhaps unpleasant sacrifice to fulfill.

It is not unusual for taste in movies, music, and TV to be different with women often liking love stories, family films, and romance a lot while men often prefer action films and sports related subject matter.

Different cultural, religious, and ethnic backgrounds can sometimes challenge a relationship if there is no common morality but often these differences can be accepted and even appreciated with the passage of time. Most conflicts which will arise can be ironed out if dogmatic relatives do not get too involved and start interfering in the marriage and trying to run it in one direction only or a direction which is opposed to the beliefs and practices of one spouse exclusively.

Of course if you are a dogmatic Muslim, Jehovah Witness, or Orthodox Jew then a different religion for a spouse will not work. Most religions are relatively flexible with liberal and conservative wings and a shared basic morality which is don’t lie, don’t steal, and don’t commit adultery if married.

Introvert and extrovert spouses can often make a go of it where the introverted spouse leaves most of the socializing to the other spouse and focuses mainly on family responsibilities and not social ones. I am an introvert without a close friend and let my wife take care of social connections. It has worked well this way for over 25 years. I am much more selective in the humans that I associate with than my wife who maintains minimal contact with about a hundred humans who have crossed her life but even here she only has a handful of a few good friends and her sister whom she stays in frequent contact with.

Cleanliness and orderliness can be an abnormal obsession with some humans who may incessantly nag if something is not clean or orderly. If the house isn’t cleaned on a regular basis, the dishes are not always washed, the laundry is not always done, etc. you can still lead a relatively clean and orderly life as long as you are not nagged about it on a regular basis.

A sense of adventure and desire to travel may differ in spouses and is usually a costly enterprise since traveling to distant places and meeting different humans is often time consuming and expensive. If you don’t like adventure then you can let your spouse do the adventuresome stuff alone or with other like minded humans.

As long as you are not going into debt financing the travel and adventure, it is not something which will ruin a marriage.

WHAT IS A SECULAR MORALIST?

what-is-morality-definition-characteristics_176416

It is human nature and the nature of language to want to classify humans into groups not realizing that there is often much overlap. Sometimes just labeling someone religious, an agnostic, or an atheist is very misleading and tends to create destructive conflicts which alienate one group from another.

I as a secular moralist intensely believe that a secular moral code should be taught in secular government schools worldwide.

Why? So that young impressionable minds are indoctrinated in how to best intuitively and peacefully interact with their fellow humans.

Further explanation: Offspring who eventually should become responsible adults should not always be in turmoil asking themselves-Is what I am going to do or say next morally right or wrong? There should be largely impulsive beliefs which courageously guide our interactions with others and optimize the probability for friendly interactions which have the potential for creating some close friendships. Our interactions with other humans should have the potential to create trusting and respectful relationships with a majority of moral human friends, especially the close ones in our circle of friends which can vary in size depending on how social we wish to be.

I intensely believe that ethical principles and suggested rules of behavior when interacting with other humans should be a direct logical outgrowth from the secular moral code and not the other way around.

Why? Relativistic situation ethics has immoral tendencies which often leads to the end justifies the means kind of thinking. You have a goal(s) in life and almost anything that you do to try and reach that goal(s) can be justified as being acceptable. This too often leads to more of an acceptance of sociopathic behavior which uses lying and deception to achieve great wealth or power. When caught in the wrong doing the punishment is often not more than a slap on the wrist even though there is moral outrage.

I intensely believe that a just society should reward the moral humans much more than the immoral ones and this should be reflected in just laws which optimize the probability that the immoral humans will be punished adequately and their existence will be relatively small in society.

Why? Immorality creates destructive chaos in society and the trusting bond and respect between humans and between humans and their leaders breaks down resulting in failed relationships and an inevitable tyranny designed to establish some semblance of order and security based on fear of death and the threat of severe punishment. Live among mostly moral humans and there is more predictable behavior and security and a sense that you are not imminently going to be the victim of some violent, lying, deceptive predator.

Here is the “modern” secular moral code which I fervently believe in:

Except in emergency situations-don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder!!!!!!

I have written extensively on themes which are an outgrowth of this secular moral code and I leave it up to you to follow up if you choose. I will only briefly touch upon two which are rather unique views of morality.

Don’t destroy biodiversity is the most important which addresses the need to conserve and even expand our wilderness areas for the long duration benefit of humanity. When irresponsible use of technology alters our environment and food supply and makes it unhealthy for human consumption, wilderness will be the safety net for new generations of healthy time tested food.

Don’t be inefficient addresses the great desirability of living sustainable lives and recycling as much human garbage and waste as possible. It also addresses the problem of overconsuming humans polluting their environment with inefficient behavior doing too many trivial and unnecessary things in life or wasting their time on relatively meaningless or purposeless activity. This moral principle also addresses human excess-too much talking, too much spending, too much drinking and eating, too much entertainment, too much arguing, too much bad or useless education, etc. etc.

Ideally what I really need is disciples and followers or humans who might be able to improve upon the secular moral code, fill in the details, advertise it worldwide, and form nuclear communities within nations which hopefully will prosper and entice many more followers worldwide.

I am too old to become a physical leader of secular moral humans but if you want to try and pursue such a lofty ambition then I would welcome it with open arms.

ONE WORLD RELIGION AND/OR ONE SECULAR MORAL CODE!!!!!!

unite

It may not be obvious but for the world to be more unified and to interact in a relatively peaceful way it must have one set of human moral principles which most try to live by. All religions and their followers can update their services to reflect a new universal moral code but more realistic would be to begin teaching this unified secular moral code in elementary schools throughout the world.

The moral principles are- except in emergency situations-don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder!!!!!!!

Call them the six commandments if you want and you can fill in the details with real world examples to make it understandable to the general public. Both religious and secular counselors can fill in the details in their own personalized way with examples from their own and friend’s personal lives.

Science will never prove the validity of this secular moral code because the principles can’t be validated in the laboratory with rigorous testing and proof. Yes, a certain amount of faith in the code is required but it is far superior to the chaotic relativistic situation ethics advocated by pseudo scientific psychologists.

A considerable amount of certainty in human relationships is vital if trust is to be maintained between the leadership and the led, among leaders, among the general public, and among families. A unified moral code taught to all as an ideal is something which humans can trust and believe in and follow impulsively once they are indoctrinated in early childhood.

Highly recommended rules of behavior is one way of looking at it and the more unified the behavior the more peaceful will be the human interactions throughout a lifetime worldwide. Humans need a morality which they can believe in and one which is free of myths, deceptions, outright lies and is as close to the real truth as possible!!!!!!

It is not enough to rule the world with a monopoly on the money supply. There must be a common morality practiced between the leaders, between the leaders and the led, and between the led and the led which unifies all humans and does not separate them into warring factions out to dominate one another in never ending human and gender strife!!!

SHARIA LAW: BACK TO THE DARK AGES FOR WOMEN!!!

shariah-law-picture

The majority of Muslims worldwide would favor Sharia law if they could get it established nationwide. Women get the worst treatment under it so most western women should be appalled and horrified by any suggestion that we should implement some of the strict archaic rules in the west. Sharia law is religious fanaticism exemplified and although I am not a Muslim hater and never will be I was shocked to read how it realistically oppresses women and how intolerant it is of other religious and secular beliefs.

ISIS wants to impose Sharia law on the whole world. Still think that you can reason with these homicidal maniacs?

Here is a link which will lead you on a path of awareness about the subject if you choose to follow it.

THE TRUTH ABOUT REFORM+

reformation-logo1

Reformation: n. making changes to a human(s) and/or to a (law(s) and/or rule(s)) to eliminate what is bad in a human(s) and/or in an organization(s) and thus trying to remove (a deviant behavior(s) and/or an abuse(s)) and/or an injustice(s)

The protestant reformation was an attempt to update or correct the injustices of the catholic church and resulted in a new form of religion. Religious reformations have also taken place in the Jewish faith and there are many offshoots such as the Mormons and the Unitarians.

Humans also undergo reformations in the form of rehabilitation, therapy, and education and these are all attempts at changing human behavior.

What society desperately needs is political reform to address the problem of so many special interest laws which are creating incredible volumes of bureaucratic red tape which is very inefficient and costing much overhead expense. The tax system needs reform desperately but no one has the courage or the political will to simplify it and make it much more just and efficient.

Society needs moral reform with a secular moral code to guide the majority of non religious citizens and a secular moral code which can even be taught in Communist China or worldwide in any nation which has a secular population.

Education and the welfare system desperately needs reform to address the problems of 21st century technological changes.

The psychiatric profession and medical profession in general desperately needs reform and a return to the basics of healthy  organic eating and drinking without the use of so many artificial pills which mask but don’t cure many of the illnesses in society.

Politics, economics, society, education, language, and even theoretical physics desperately needs reformation and my evergreen truth books and blogs address all the necessary changes which need to be made to make this world a more just place for humanity and the wilderness.

I am an advocate of reformation in almost everything that is of importance for healthy just human survival along with wilderness survival or the survival of biodiversity.

Read my works and become a member of the worldwide movement to reform this world before it plunges deeper in its destruction of this precious earth so that future generations will benefit from our behavior and not be devastated by its future polluting and destructive consequences.

Optimistic change is possible but there isn’t much time left to stew in present immoral human behavior which is rapidly destroying many parts of the world, especially biodiversity, which is the safety net we will need when the domestic food supply becomes too unhealthy for human consumption due to bad technological interference.
