I recently attended an incredibly impactful seminar. While there, I heard the following: “Face it, you are a meaning making machine,” “there is no inherent meaning in anything in life, only the meaning YOU gave to it.”
I must say I was puzzled – along with everyone else in the room. I didn’t quite get it at first. A meaning making machine? What does that mean? It wasn’t long until it clicked. Awe……I thought to myself. I am doing it right now, trying to make meaning of it. I can’t help it, it’s automatic.
