Our More Great Challenge

You can’t remove everything one man less something: the last of the freedoms, the choose his attitude in any circumstance and choose your own path. Viktor Emil Frankl, neurologist and Austrian psychiatrist, founder of logotherapy, survived in several Nazi concentration camps. From that experience, he wrote the book the man in search of meaning. In this very revealing book, a masterpiece of psychology, Victor Franklnos reveals the essential that is not only for the happiness and self-realization, but also for the survival of human beings, even in the worst conditions imaginable, a sense for life itself. For assistance, try visiting Dr. John Mcdougall. A life with sense drives us to overcome any circumstance, for most adverse to be (as the author demonstrates through the stories of his experience in the concentration camps nazis, where people were subjected to the most inhumane living conditions that can conceive). It also shows, on the basis of his work as a psychiatrist, that a sense of their own existence helps even the mentally ill to cure themselves, as alleged in his psychiatric creed: no sick spirit.

The human spirit is the most powerful on Earth Force, since it can affect and modify not only the mind and body of who owns it, but also their own destiny and of those who surround him. Taking into account these statements, we can infer that, as human beings-a spirit so powerful weapon, no situation that we can not overcome or obstacle that could prevent us from achieving our dreams. The big problem today is the lack of dreams (or the conviction of being able to achieve them – faith), fruit of an existential emptiness based mainly on the lack of a sense of life. It is therefore vital that, to back us and meet our goals, we first find a meaning to our existence that we mobilize to the depths of our being.

Frankl describes 3 ways or means of finding that sense: 1) performing a mission that transcends the very existence. Leave a legacy. (2) Welcoming gifts of life. For example: by the internal disturbance caused by the beauty of a work of art, nature or love. (3) By suffering.

The latter serves to find a meaning for life only if it is absolutely unavoidable, since otherwise it would be just masochism. In this case, as human beings, have the unique ability to make, through the acceptance of pain, that this makes sense and we serve to grow inwardly and find a reason to go on living. A very common case is that of the people who lost a loved one because of an incurable disease such as cancer, and finds a way to overcome founding a Center for research to combat this disease. These people have not only found a way to overcome the pain of the loss, but they have gone beyond creating something bigger than themselves. Is clear that we can turn to 3 media to find our sense of life: for example, I can work to achieve the Mission of creating an oranizacion for the care of the environment (1), and strengthen through the respect that I have for nature and love for my children, whom I want to leave them a better future (2). At the same time he would be willing to deal with all the suffering necessary to make that dream a reality (3). In conclusion, I invite you to reflect on this concept so important and so elusive today, in that the tedium and boredom take away our passion be somebody in life and transcend our own problems.

All we need is that inner fire that moves us and gives us the conviction of knowing that we can really make anything that we propose in life. It is just a matter of finding a purpose, a meaning. That is our biggest challenge.
