Ego can never have a genuine relation to anything really.
How can it, when practically, Ego´s essence is built on defense and attack?
It is – and defines itself through – limit.
It constantly raises and hides behind thick walls.
Subsequently, you can´t possibly find Meaning at an egotic level.
WHERE EGO ENDS, TRUE RELATION STARTS.

I will re-post this as it really makes sense:

What is this thing called Future?… It is hope, fear, expectation, doubt, uncertainty, frustration… In short, future is ideal and fear of ideal. Will it happen, will it not…?”, ”what happens next?”, “what´s the next step, how shall I proceed with this or that?”
I won´t induce in philosophical speculation, I just wonder: What if future didn´t exist? What would happen if we took a healthy choice and eliminate “future” at least for a while…?
The consequence of this would be unimaginable: If there is no future there would be no ideal
either. No ideal – no fear.
Yes, future means basically projection, doens´t it?…No future – no fear – no projection. What is projection? Projection means that we give ourselves away. We give our force away, our hopes, vitality, strength and fears to something uncertain basically. What if we took home all projections, projecting them on this very moment…? For sure, we would retrieve ourselves in this very second…- we would start being real, being exactly how we are.
WE HAVE INVENTED THE FUTURE BECAUSE WE FEAR THIS MOMENT! Our fear to find out what or who we are, has become “future”. There is no future! Future is fear!
When we let go of the fear, future and projection, we begin to perceive Now in unfathomable ways – this present moment will start reveal a beauty, mystery and richness beyond measure. Every single thing will mean something. You will start having a right relation both to yourself and with things around you. You start perceiving YOUR INTRINSIC MEANING. Your immediate perception of your specific meaning is your greatest asset, your richness. You will find peace. Clarity. You will do less but achieve more.
Have you ever wondered why people are so greedy and poor inside always going around complaining?…Because their life usually is devoid of sense. They irretrievably look for meaning and fulfillment in the future… But Meaning never resides in the future…Only fear does…
We never live in the future, we live now, don´t we…? Only Now knows the secret of Our Meaning. Meaning means Fulfillment.

Loss of meaning is the worst disease on the individual and collective basis.
Loss of meaning is worse than death.
Subsequently, to try to come to grips and uncover YOUR SPECIFIC MEANING AND PURPOSE is the most vital task you are facing.
Sense is not something you will find tomorrow or whenever, it is the urgency of this very moment. Doing something inertially, without really knowing why is totally inappropriate and inane; you cannot know what sanity and inner fulfillment are about, before you come to terms with your personal call in this life.
You will never have Peace unless you fulfill the meaning and destination of your Now!
So instead of engaging in plenty of superfluous actions, try to find out what makes your heart sing, what makes you feel real, vibrant and alive!

You may read this in my “About” section. I found Steve´s words so incredibly meaningful so here is what he says along with my response to him:
“A WordPress search on the word “joy” is what brought me to your blog and I enjoyed the post on joy that you published on 7/3/12. It is the following statement on your “About” page that will keep me following your work.
“This blog is not about interesting concepts… it is about participation…togetherness…finding new solutions, inspiration to live a richer life.”
I am all in for all of these! I will continue to follow your blog and participate whenever meaningful. Thank you for what you are doing.”
I am very grateful for your kind feed back, literally, it means a lot, metaphorically, it is invaluable for two reasons:
For the first, if Joy was the pointer to Mirrors of Encounters, well, it means that I am following the right track.
For the second, I was kind of insecure when it comes to this particular post, as I loved it, but due to its “simpleness”, I didn´t know whether it made sense to someone else.
Hope not to let you down, as many times I write about things we find rather awkward to look at and accept. We also have to dare looking deeply into the realms of the insidious and the obscure, before Joy – the light of all lights – can unleash itself in all its resplendence.
My main pursuit in life is Meaning, Stringency is my favorite key word. Sometimes I manage to create synthesis, sometimes not.
It is here where participation is so valuable, cause sincere and straight dialogue put us back on the right track.
Thank you again for your words!

A successful recruitment means digging deep and finding what gives people their life meaning. It is helping that person explore their choices in life so they can make better decisions.
By encouraging people to be truthful about their dreams and goals in life, I empowered them to change direction so they would be moving toward something that had true meaning for them.
