Meaning is a topic that we have a lot of to talk about for so many reasons. To pick a random and rather abstract one, “meaning is the sum of all the meaning I have experienced in my life”. Meaning is the sum of what I’ve done, and the sum of what I will do. The sum of my whole life. Meaning is what makes me who I am.
Meaning is what’s on the screen that makes me who I am. Meaning is what I see in my mind. Meaning is what I feel when I look in a mirror. Meaning is who I am. Meaning is what I love.
All of these reasons are interrelated, but I think that even if we ignore them all, we still need to cover some of the ways that meaning is important to us. We are not just a bunch of individual little pieces of our own lives, we are a whole story. Meaning is the sum of our many experiences, and the sum of our relationships. Meaning is the sum of whatever it is we experience in life right now. Meaning is what brings us together.
Just how we know we’re on autopilot when we’re not on autopilot is a matter of mind, and whether or not that’s the case, it’s a matter of mind-blowing. Meaning is what brings us together in a way that is enjoyable, fun, and exciting. Our focus needs to be on doing what we’re supposed to be doing. We’ve been doing so for a long time. Everything we’ve done is going to be a good thing.
So, if life is a matter of mind, meaning is a matter of mind-blowing.
Most of us are so used to being on autopilot that we don’t even recognize the autopilot. It is a way to get ourselves ready for when we don’t have to think, and so is often a way to avoid thinking about things we don’t want to think about. It is a way to avoid thinking about things that are painful and unpleasant (like death). It is also a way to avoid thinking about the things that bring us together.
The autopilot, which is the state in which we are all on autopilot, means we can be so caught up in our own thoughts and emotions that it is easy to forget we are on autopilot. This is why I wrote this book. It is a process I use to help myself and other people on autopilot to consciously recognize and change their autopilot.
The book isn’t clear enough yet on what is meant by autopilot. I know that it is meant to inspire me and help me, but I can’t think of anything that can, even if I have to, to help me.
I think the word “autopilot” is used a lot in this book. It is to help me to recognize and change my autopilot, and in turn help others to also recognize and change theirs. I think of autopilot as the state where we are so caught up in our own thoughts and emotions that it is easy to forget we are on autopilot. Autopilot is the state in which we are so caught up in our thoughts and emotions that we cannot control them.
I don’t know how to even begin to explain how this book is going to be of any use to you because I don’t think you’ve ever been on autopilot. You are not autopilot. You are in the space between. You are in the middle of a journey. You are not just going through the motions, you have more thoughts and beliefs and plans than you’d ever have time to even think about.
