Our mind journey over life

All of us have various cravings when we were young. Maybe they are sexual craving, traveling to wonderful places, eating delicious food, impressing people you care, having a romance with beautiful women, earning respect from other people, etc. These cravings were driving us to be excellent or work hard. Over time, these cravings may be satisfied to different degree. Gradually we are losing our driving forces or motivations because our cravings are satisfied or satisfied to some extent. Then from time to time, we may feel life is so boring and we don't know how to drive away this boredom because we have used up our cravings which acted as life driving forces. Then we feel life is meaningless and we live like a zombie and we live so passively. We don't want to actively do anything or change anything. We passively rely on outer factors to drive us or push us to perform. Then occasionally we may think what we are living for? We don't know what are we living for, we just know death is fearful and we can't die, at least we can't proactively let us die. So we live soullessly. We become insensitive and we let life push us around. What is your comment?

@stevenya,
I think this may be true for 5% of the population, but it certainly doesn't relate to all of us.

@stevenya,
yes and because of that we have children so that we can live our hopes once more. In youth there is of course more passion because everything is still new and we only begin to practice our ability to change our fate. Also this is why some older people who were secular turn to religion. The key is to continue to be curious.

@stevenya,
so your saying that life becomes more and more “meaningless” as our lives become more and more fulfilled, because as we achieve our ambitions and desires, we lose the goals that once motivated us to live passionately and actively.
The solution to this problem it would seem is to continue to set yourself goals. People can become trapped in passivity, and begin to exist in a life totally comprised of habits, which then perpetuate feelings of boredom and meaninglessness. As someone else has said, our children provide us with purpose, but for those people who don’t have children, then they must set themselves a goal.
