The Meaning of Life

I have just read an interesting article entitled "Think doctors know best? Think medical science is on your side? Think again!".

Is it not amazing that we now live in a world where the so-called "specialists" know what is best for us all, but they do not apply their own methology and do not provide solutions which are not motivated by financial gain. They unfortunately range from idiots to the ignorant to those who apply what our world teaches people; you are worth what you earn. What is the purpose of university then? Is it to teach people knowledge or to teach them how to "be successful" and make money. What is even more terrible about this is that one finds so many rich people who are extremely unhappy, but insist on their children going to university to study so that one day they can also make lots of money; but why? If you are not happy with money why will your children be? Might I also point out the fact, sir, that which makes you high (your excuse for happiness) is not being rich, but striving to make more money. You never get where you want to be in life since you have turned it into a race after nothing; what you want is always just out of reach because that is what you really want. You are unable to live for the now.

Follow some of your own methology, which you were "taught" in university and scientifically test this theory. I think you will find that your happiest moments in life were those where you switched off from the outside world and were just in the moment. Those were profound moments in your life; from the birth of your child to the greatest moments with your wife that you can never have back again. So, did those moments involve money or your mind? If your answer is your mind then what have you gained from owning the latest Mercedes or biggest house bought with unnecessary medical procedures.

One day your children will want you to teach them wisdom. What will you teach them?
