What do you do when you reach an end to you search for knowledge?
I know that this is something very hard to swallow for those of you content with a relativist point of view (the "there is no truth" gang, among others), but I am truly an individual who has found all the answers (or at least all the answers that matter).

If you have trouble believing that, it still makes no difference to my case. Whether or not I'm the real deal or just a schizophrenic, the fact stays as a fact that what I'll describe to you is exactly how I feel ... and there is seemingly no way out.

so please help me out here with ideas.

I am not depressed. On the contrary, I feel very sympathetic, very thankful for what life has given me. For all this understanding that I have, I feel calm and peaceful, and powerful. My self-confidence is also over the roof.

But I'm worried about this feeling of meaninglessness that has set in my life. I cannot convince myself to do anything anymore, since everything seems empty to me. Only the most basic necessities and the most logical needs of household life can move me. For everything else I cannot move a finger towards doing the involved tasks. Nothing rocks my boat anymore; nothing fascinates, motivates or enthusiasms me. I laugh about everything, but I also feel that I could cry about everything.

I feel like I'm back to the beginning, and with no energy left to start over. I do have physical and mental energy to do common things, but most of it is in a motionless, paralyzed state, as if my body has been storing it for the future.

My situation would be ironic if it wasn't sad. What is beginning to annoy me is that I am also having trouble keeping my word and helping out people. Sometimes I will take so long to do something for a friend that they just give up on me.

I mean, "helping others" should be a pretty convincing argument to anyone. I never thought that it could be topped by my onsetting apathy... but I was wrong. Even the idea of helping has lost meaning to me. Who should be the first to receive my help? Where do I begin exactly? What do I gain? What do they gain? All of these questions start flooding my head and soon I no longer know what to do.

Those of you who have reached a high level of spirituality know that life ultimately has no guidelines or intrinsic meaning / purpose , except for the one that you create. This is a marvelous realization -- that you are indeed the god of your life -- and yet here I am totally out of ideas. I have absolutely no idea of what to do with my "freedom."

Over the years I have considered many scenarios / strategies, hundreds of them to be frank, and not a single one has worked. I tried over and over again to come up with some kind of self-made Oracle that I could look into and suddenly know what to do , despite of my own wishes. But you can only lie to yourself for so long...

For a while I was also afraid that the only solution would involve forgetting or destroying part of my knowledge, which -- now I believe -- is not only illogical, but probably impossible.

So here I am. I am much similar to the Marvel character called 'the Sentry ', arguably the most powerful of Earth's superheroes (Hulk and Thor fans often differ), but due to crippling mental problems he is totally ineffectual in real battles.

I am unable to participate anymore, to interact with people, to take their dreams as my own, etc. And I don't think it's a matter of me being unable to see thru their points of view. Trust me, I have eliminated / outed every single point that ever passed thru my head. Absolutely none of the many beliefs, affirmations and quotes that people cling to make any sense to me anymore. Catchphrases and clever sayings used to work a few days, sometimes weeks, but nowadays they only last seconds. Whatever is your "point" about life, I'm confident that I can destroy it with only 3 sentences.

Nothing that I ever learned in theory seems to work in practice. Practice is a closed system...and everything we do is completely spontaneous / out of control. I simply cannot force this creature, this "body" that I associate with, to do the things that I desire. Hell, I'm not even sure if I exist.

There is no such thing as control, only illusion. You don't exist -- you only think that you do.

It's like an invisible forcefield. I cannot even force my body to move a finger toward doing anything useful. I have tried physically fighting this force before. I remember when I used all of my strength to move myself to the office to work on one of my projects, but my body paralyzed and my mind went blank. Then I collapsed on the floor exhausted.

And the worst is that I cannot lie to it either. I've tried luring my body with sex and food before , but the process was often interrupted halfway because somehow the 'FORCE' KNEW my game.

And there is more...

In order to convince yourself to do something , there must exist some kind of problem that you are able to see. But I see no problem with the cosmos. Everywhere I look, it seems just the way it should be. Nothing to fix, nothing to prove. I see no forces to oppose and no challenges to conquer...except perhaps this one: how do I fill this great big void that I am now the king of?

Nihilism or enlightenment? You decide. I cannot say for sure because I don't believe in Nihilism either, and enlightenment has been disappointing to me lately.

I need your help, because this star, this person, is suffering a premature death. I have lost my identity and I don't know what to do anymore.

Thank you for reading.

why do you feel meaningless? is it because you feel like you lost your purpose after finding out what you needed to know?
Keep exploring. it's all a journey. find out about new things that fancy your interest. seeking outside motivation is not the answer, it's like seeking outside happiness. it has to come from within. find something that excites you and run with it. good luck, OP.

I didn't necessarily lose my purpose. I do have a purpose, yet it doesn't move me any longer. I need a stronger, higher, everlasting one.

You advice is good, but it has many loose ends. Allow me to list you a few:

1) What if I don't have the energy to perform the search in the first place?
2) I don't know what to look for, therefore I don't know where to start
3) If I don't know what to look for, how will I recognize it when I find it?
4) I'm afraid there are no "new" things left that fancy my interest. I've lost all my hope. When I feel interested by something, it usually only lasts a few seconds.
5) I have no more time / patience to lose. This "search" has already lasted for several years of my life, and there is no sign that it'll ever end. I need guarantees. Unless the answer is coming in the next 5 minutes, I have no interest in starting any search. It's a miracle that I'm even on this forum as I 'm also unmotivated to use computers.

If your search for knowledge led you to apathy, then you found the wrong answer.
When you see the world as it is you can move your finger and make huge changes.
If you cannot see changes to be made (if for no purpose other than entertainment) you are lost.

Talk to strangers, you will find a connection, don't try to fix those closest to you who have made the choice...impossible for you to fix. Teach the children, those still young in their development.

Make new friends, find a new Family.

I do not believe that 'I am god of my life'. I wouldn't be asking for your help if I believed that exclusively. First of all, pay attention to the text: I said that YOU (yes, you) are the god of your life. I never said anything about my own personal belief.

What I believe is much more complex than what you're thinking. See this thread for reference: Thread: You are God

Anything that can be philosophized about life can be split in two arenas: theory and practice.

If the knowledge that "I am God" was useful , it would have solved my motivational problem by now. But it didn't. Why? Because "I am God" is just a silly statement, albeit truthful. There are people trapped in victim mentality and there are people who can see their destinies unfolding by their own creation, even though sometimes it's an unconscious process. I am creating my own reality, but knowing this alone isn't useful because there are several levels for this "being" that is you or me. We have multiple personalities, so in the end the most accurate answer is that you are god and you aren't at the same time. So you see, in practice this stuff of god-realization is much more complex. When I realized my godlike responsibility years ago, it solved many theoretical issues I had, but it didn't solve the problem presented in this thread.

Besides I have always asked help for a higher intelligence despite my knowledge. As you can see I'm now even asking for YOUR help. Being God doesn't mean you aren't plagued by problems (of your own creation), because reality is ultimately paradoxical. God's existence is paradoxical.

Re: What do you do when you reach an end to you search for knowledge?
I feel you OP. The end = meeting God.

smile... first of all.

After what you have sought, believe me... others will be sent to you for answers.

Universe is a give and take, you took a leap of clarity and it filled you tremendously.

Life probably feels mundane now because you have sought philosophy, history, genetics, paradigms, kinetics, heretics,mathematics, substances, etc....
all of that stuff..

after a while you start to live the spiral... it all goes back to the same place..
the chamber of memory stored through out and beyond what "is."

Its a privilege i guess. Now teach! you were planted seeds to harvest and grow in others...
yay.


now do it. and through that there is death and rebirth.

same cycle over and over...
for instance before my seeds were extracted something told me
" protect your mind, be ready."


soo yeah sometimes i go crazy and act worldly and emotional because of the feeling of emptiness but its not even that, its over whelming anxiety of fulfillment but not knowing what to do with it or all the pointless negative self talks about what to question in order to feel "normal" again. THATS not the point, point is, keep going. embrace the next symbol or sign or miracle... follow the road. you can't lose it, because you are it.

keep that drive.

STAY IN MOTION.
who cares if its nihilism or enlightenment, be righteous that you're not a zombie empty hole that will probably take 50 years to understand its self through trial and error with no ability to cope.

you got this !!

'its' use is the same as your use, getting to know each other indefinitely.

WITHOUT reading past the first paragraph, I 'guess' your old and are NOT living with family, relatives. I am in same boat, but found MY purpose in family ( Hope you have one ) and future events, coming THIS YEAR, if I and GLP are correct.

Try to concentrate on ALL you can do to prepare for the time they have to face these same life threatening events with NO preparation and DO SOMETHING to save them, regardless of their negativity/support.

IF you should be older, and have more insight, let it guide you to productive investments in the future. Who knows ? They might even be grateful !

Re: What do you do when you reach an end to you search for knowledge?
The OP has already stated that he believes he is the god of his own life and he believes this view comes from spiritual wisdom.

Is it any wonder he expresses his misery?

I wish he were not so "wise".

As I said, OP. You are too wise to accept help that helps. It is foolishness to the "wise".

So be "wise", OP... And be miserable. Lots of company where you are at.... Sadly.

Talk to strangers, you will find a connection, don't try to fix those closest to you who have made the choice...impossible for you to fix. Teach the children, those still young in their development.

Make new friends, find a new Family.

You will be amazed!

Already considered that. The "Meeting new people" strategy. While there is great value to that (sometimes people will give you answers without them being aware), it's an unusable pattern. What if I'm sitting in my home alone at 4 in the morning and I need to obtain inspiration / motivation to do something? Everyone is sleeping and chatrooms are filled with sex-crazed people. Also, you have no control of WHEN and WHAT people will tickle your fancy with something inspirational. I don't want to be inspired to do what THEY want. I want to be inspired to do what I want. You have absolutely no control over your destiny if you are bound to look for inspiration always outside of yourself under certain times and only with certain people. IT makes no sense. You need a strategy that works quickly and all the time and depends only on you.

Also I have a hard time connecting to people simply because they are usually not at a high level. they're trapped in petty dramas, dreams and survival mentality.

Also, I do not wish to TALK any longer. I have already found the answers I needed and I feel no need to "discuss" them as they are pretty much cemented in my brain already. What I wish to do now is ACT.
