This book explains human development on the basis of easily-understood examples and simple models. It is intended to arouse thinking about your own life and to offer help as to how we can specifically change our lives. The author describes how we can achieve constant harmony and inner peace. The right choice and deliberate pursuing of our own, self-selected goals take on a key role in this so that we can achieve our own goals and not let ourselves be manipulated by others.
In principle, meaning of life is the same for everybody: 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.
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 saw an increasing number of people searching for keywords like the meaning of life, purpose of life, spirit of life, philosophy of life, etc. on our site. Therefore we thought it could be helpful to write some sort of overview or summary where you can find information about the meaning of life on this site.
About the meaning of life
The question about the meaning of life is probably as old as human beings. And it is a very fundamental question, too. You shouldn't expect anybody to answer this question in one simple sentence. You have to deal yourself with questions about the meaning of life and with spirituality. Over time you will then hopefully find your own answer to the meaning of life. What matters most for you is actually the meaning and purpose of your own life and not a very general meaning of life.
Often we reduce the role of children to reproduce the society, to keep the number of people at the desired level. Children need to learn our language, understand our behaviour, culture and rules, etc.
Who could transfer this knowledge better than professionals, people educated to teach exactly this? – If you look at it from this point of view, it would be most economical to give your children away for education after birth as soon as possible.
There is of course another point of view: What is the most important role of children?
The need for electricity has constantly risen world-wide over the last years. This is not only true for the so-called developing countries but also and in particular for all well-developed countries. In order to fulfil the demand, obviously additional power plants have to be built.
Which technology is best for generating electricity? This question certainly has to be answered on a case by case base. But it is very concerning that nuclear power plants more and more seem to be chosen as "the" technology of the future.
What drives us as human beings?
Why do we exist?
What is the purpose of life?
What do we strive for?
«Time for change» is about your life, your objectives and your decisions. We are convinced that basic human needs are the same everywhere and finally we all strive for the same thing:
We want to be 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-fulfilment, self-realization, peace of mind, for calmness or however we may wish to describe this condition of our personality, is indisputably the top goal in the case of virtually all models of human needs.
Have you already reached this goal of life? Or do you still have weaknesses which can disconcert you?
Are you actively and consciously working towards happiness, joy and perpetual harmony?
Have you clearly set out your objectives for living?
If not – this might just be the right time for change! This site offers thoughts and advice about personal growth, spiritual development and about the meaning of life. It’s also about ethically correct behaviour in the centre of daily life. «Time for change» is meant as a platform for sharing ideas and elucidations.
Get active! If we change ourselves, the world will change, too. But we must begin now, the sooner the better. It is time for change!
What does personal growth have to do with the meaning of life? – An overview
With this website and with our range of lectures and consultation activities we would like to impart information about life’s most important interrelationship. In particular how we ourselves can set and achieve sensible objectives for our lives.
In addition we offer techniques and help with which personal growth towards harmony and inner peace can be consciously controlled and efficiently arranged. Our greatest interest is the integration and the concrete application of these thoughts to our everyday lives, both our working and our private lives.
There are more and more temptations for substitute dealings, which for a brief moment in time give us the illusion that we have reached the above mentioned objectives. Personality development and spiritual growth to reach a higher consciousness are however inevitable if inner peace and happiness are to become a lasting experience. We ourselves with the help of our subconscious are our best teachers and our environment both in private and business life are our best trainers.
One of the most important keys to personal growth is to realize that we can and must set the goals for our life ourselves instead of letting others (e.g. advertisement, family, media, „friends”) decide upon our goals (self-determination).
We are personally responsible for all our decisions, for whatever we do or do not do because from self-determination follows self-responsibility. Only through our deeds can we develop a higher consciousness over time and thus reach the above mentioned goals of perpetual harmony and inner peace.
In order to exercise responsibility, we also express our view on current issues of politics and society e.g. cause, effects and potential solutions for global warming, phase-out of nuclear power, the need to increase energy efficiency and more.
We ourselves together with the information presented here are independent of any religions, associations, sects, political and economic organizations or similar.
Sooner or later the question arises as to why we «must» influence our subconscious in order to develop permanent harmony within ourselves. Why «must» we ourselves want this development so that it takes place? If this goal is somehow «somewhere» within us then why doesn’t this development automatically take place towards this goal without our having to do anything and without effort!
The answer to these objections can more or less be found in the goal itself: According to the basic rights of existence each living being has the equal right to live here, to develop and to carry out its tasks. Each can decide for himself toward which goal he wants to develop. No one forces us to live the basic rights of existence, or to strive for our own internal perpetual harmony. We can do what we want or not – however we must also live with the consequences of our decisions.
Sooner or later – and at the latest shortly before death – everyone will ponder about why we are here, what keeps life going on the earth, how life started, what happens after death, why a plant grows from a seed, whether there are other «inhabited» planets etc. Perhaps we will also concern ourselves with the future of the earth and pose the question of how the many and diverse problems on our planet can ever be solved.
In order – at least to a small extent – to be able to answer such questions, it is important to know what is the actual basis for our being. The answer to this question is astonishingly simple:
