Just a Thought—Doubts Meaning

We struggle with the “meaning of things”, what they mean to us is how we behave, act, attack, love, desire, pray, die, give birth etc.  What something means is very important to our culture, race, nation, faith, afterlife etc.  We see this because without it, then what?  What do we live for and respond to but its meaning?  We believe it means something and we, thereby, hold on to it, secure and comfort our lives, but “meaning” is merely held captive by doubt.  Doubt that without it life looses purpose, direction and meaning.  How is that so without the image and ego first being eradicated from within?  Doubt has to be understood and observed for it to be non-existent or come to an end—there must be clarity to view and end to doubt.  What is doubt but a moment of hesitation, a thought telling us to reevaluate the situation, person, area, region, faith, god, village, animal etc.? There is doubt in hesitation which is an unrealized perception of fear which carries meaning.  We’ve all hesitated at someone’s features, clothing, race, faith, choice etc.  This is a subconscious response being played out on the conscious level, and cleverly disguised as well.  Most don’t look that close to see it rising from within or in others.  The egoic human being cannot function without a sense that a life fostered has direction, meaning and purpose.  Our present world order is testament.  But how is sorrow and conflict created?...With or without “meaning?”  JustaThought
