Life Activity

Life Activity is the combination of living and personal meaning, which eventually forms belief patterns in an individual, according to the specific set of circumstances, events and situations that are experienced.

The resulting meaning is a combination of objective and subjective meaning, forming a relationship between a phenomenon and subject, while being highly contextual in nature due to the many variables involved.

Meaning: Global And Situational

  • Global (or ultimate) meaning talks about the intrinsic meaning of life as it is, and is a functional way of understanding the world around us. It works on the notion that ‘ignorance is bliss’.
  • Situational meaning is more dynamic and can be applied to every moment in our lives, looking at it as a separate, meaningful event.

Small meaning is the everyday details that make us experience a moment, like seeing one’s daughter smile.

If the moment is filled with something complete within itself, like a sunset or a flower, then it becomes suchness meaning.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
