Some people ask what the meaning of life is.
Some people ask how they are going to make it through the day and they are referring to different things when they ask that.
Some people ask how they can better themselves.
Some people ask how they can better treat their fellow humans.
Some people want a philosophical answer, others want practical advice and still others want to hear it straight from the mouth of God.
Some people say there are philosophical underpinnings to these questions, others say it has to do with our psychology which is a result of our genes or our culture and upbringinging or some combo of those ingredients, others still say this is our soul crying out for a connection with its source.
Just pointing that out.
