Finding Meaning In Life – If It’s Not Found Positively, It’ll Be Found Negatively

Listen to this interview using the Flash player below:

Dr. Kalman Kaplan, Professor of Clinical Psychology and Psychiatry, and Co-Author of A Psychology of Hope: A Biblical Response to Tragedy and Suicide talks about the crisis of purposelessness with Dr. Michael Laitman.

Here’s an extract from the conversation:

Dr. Kalman Kaplan: If you’re disconnected from what you do, nothing gives you pleasure. When you’re involved in what you do, the smallest thing will give you pleasure. If you’re behind what you do, life has a purpose. You don’t have enough time to do everything you want to do.

Dr. Michael Laitman: But I think that in the end, the solution [ed. to the crisis of purposelessness] is in human relations. If the general atmosphere were positive, it would affect each of us and would give us a sensation of life, warmth, strength, and energy to live. It all depends on this black cloud that’s coming down on the world. And this is a problem. If we strengthen our good relations, we will certainly not see such incidents as suicide, depression, and all that.

For people between the ages of 15 and 44, suicide is the fourth leading cause of death and the sixth leading cause of disability and infirmity worldwide. Also, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, “Combined 2004 and 2005 data indicate that 8.88 percent of youths aged 12 to 17 and 7.65 percent of adults aged 18 or older experienced at least one major depressive episode (MDE) in the past year.”

Millions of people the world over, and especially the younger generation, are committing suicide or suffering from suicidal tendencies, depression, drug addiction and violence because they’re hopeless. They have real questions and they need real answers, and there is no one to provide them with answers except us — the parents.

In his book “Man’s Search for Meaning,” Viktor Frankl quotes Friedrich Nietzsche as saying that “He who has a strong enough why can bear almost any how.” more…
