Reading philosophy and self-development is just one part. Taking time to vividly map out your own central values you think or feel that you should live by, and designing practical, reliable “compass” — featured with everything you need when your and others’ values contradict, when you feel out of place, or when you feel lost — to navigate the entirety of your life, that’s what really serves guidance to your own, personal meaningful life.
Hi, Anshari. What a great article.
I agree with you, the scope on questions of both truth and meaning under the banner of religion are often misunderstood. People who were born as Muslim (or other religions) mostly just take religion as pure dogmatism.
I believe that true "believers" use their mind to verify the information, then choose the best path for them, these people are strengthened through the verification process and just like you said, it may lead them to find their own personal meaningful life.
