The Doctor is (not) In

Updated: Jan 8, 2018


Existential crises can strike at anytime. Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? Are there inherent moral consequences to our actions? Why is there suffering and injustice in the world? Why do evil people thrive and good people suffer? You’ll be happy to know that I have all the answers to these questions, and they will be slowly revealed in the entries of this blog.


Yeah.


Actually, I don’t have a doctor of philosophy, just an art degree and a Master’s in Family Therapy. So while that does qualify me to do certain things, dishing out answers about the meaning of life isn’t one of them. But there are a few things I do know, and I hold on to those pretty strongly. I’m a reluctant humanist, which means no matter what horrible things people do to each other in the world, I still tend to believe human souls are inclined towards goodness, growth and healing. I’m also a sucker for the still, small voice inside that can help us through challenges and existential crises once we train ourselves to listen to it.

Not a full answer to the meaning of life questions, but then again, I’m just starting this blog. So by my ten thousandth post I will definitely have it figured out, and I’ll probably do a big giveaway or something.
