The Meaning Book
I started writing The Meaning Book in 2015, without knowing I was writing it.
It was just something I enjoyed doing. The words came out, I was just there.
It also helped me through a difficult time in my life. A dark time emotionally. Getting over a break-up with a woman I cared about deeply.
While writing it, a lighter side of life started revealing itself to me.
Through writing it and going through all of those deeper and darker feelings, I started realizing that the dark and the light are quite similar. And everything else in-between those two.
Even more so, these are the cycles of life. We are meant to experience the so-called “good” and “bad” things in life. Or light and dark if You will.
Every time You are experiencing something You perceive negative, someone out there is experiencing something more positive. And a third person is experiencing something entirely neutral. Maybe their life is standing still.
At times the roles are reversed.
Life is not meant to be only either-or. There is everything to life.
This book is about finding meaning in all of those moments. Death, life, loss, gains. The whole spectrum.
It’s about seeing those things as they are. Not as we want them to be.
It’s about accepting where You are, accepting death and life the same. Because in many ways they are so intimately connected, it’s hard to tell the difference.
My hope for this book is that it will show that there is light in the darkness. As well as darkness in light. I hope it will help You accept life as it is.
But a word of warning. It will not save You. Only You have the power to save Yourself. This book will hopefully guide You in the right direction.
