Choose a life with meaning

Research output: Book/ReportOther

Abstract

Our modern world is a diverse and fascinating place. But it is also a complex and challenging one, full of consumerism, materialism, and virtual ‘realities’.
Some say we, as a human family, are in a spiritual crisis. Many are pointing to the curious finding that depression and suicide rates have increased worldwide since the end of World War II, despite the fact that most Western countries have at least doubled their spending power.
Why is that? We don’t know for sure. But the research is clear on one thing: as long as our basic needs are met, more money does not make us substantially happier. To feel truly happy and healthy on all levels—physically, emotionally and psychologically—we need a sense of meaning and purpose in our lives.
