Review of personal growth as the meaning of life

As multifaceted as we human beings may be, once our existential needs are covered, we all finally strive for the same thing: We want to be perpetually happy and satisfied and we want to be able to live our lives without worries and cares. This search for harmony and inner peace, for self-realization, or however we like to describe this state, as our top objective in life, is practically the same in all the different methods of representing human needs. Not least the advertising industry also frequently attempts to make use of this striving for happiness and harmony.

From our experience we know that wherever we are or whatever we do certain rules prevail. On the roads these are the traffic regulations, in football the rules of play, in nature there are the natural laws. For those that respect these rules the corresponding activities or deeds are easier to accomplish than for those who violate these rules and therefore have to be reprimanded in one way or another.

We have got to know the most important rule on the earth which all the earth’s inhabitants must follow. This rule says: «Every being has an equal right to live here, to develop here and to carry out his tasks here». Because of their importance for everything on the earth we call this rule the basic rights of existence. On the basis of several examples and comparisons from our everyday life, we have seen that harmony and peace can only come into our lives if we respect this foundation of existence, if we try to respect the foundation of existence automatically in all the decisions we make.

The more resolutely and single-mindedly a person follows these rules in all his decisionmaking, the closer he gets to his goal of internal peace and harmony. From this point of view our life is nothing other than a training camp for the acquisition of the missing characteristics and abilities which we require for perpetually respecting the basic rights of existence, the most important rule in life.

Our subconscious helps us with subjective perception (glasses model), the activation of our objectives (tuning bowl model) and additional mechanisms permit us to interpret things such that we can efficiently train for the abovementioned goals. We develop our awareness and accept the full responsibility for our life (self-responsibility). This is our personal path to harmony and inner peace.

We have discussed these processes in detail and thereby we have emphasized again and again the importance of setting clear goals and of the deliberate monitoring of our success in achieving or approaching these goals in our lives. It is only in this way that we can be sure that we are pursuing our own goals and are not suddenly pursuing externally-set goals.

The objective of respecting the basic rights of existence represents for most human beings a far-reaching change in their system of personal values. It is only now – at this present time – that the preconditions are the optimum ones for making a change in our system of personal values. In the final analysis it is the responsibility of each individual personally to translate these ideas into action.

He who pursues as the topmost goal in his life the deliberate respecting of the basic rights of existence, also automatically makes his maximum possible contribution to the general wellbeing.

Finally I would like to wish you complete clarity and strength for your self-chosen path in life from the bottom of my heart. Never ever forget: You yourself can decide, no one can force you into anything.
