The search for meaning in life can take us to strange places. What is the strangest place it has taken you? Let us know! Click here to post your own answer
The search for meaning has taken me from outback Australia, to the tops of mountains, to the depths of my mind, to the pyramids, to divorce and further. Probably the strangest place, for me, was a cave in the Mexican jungle.
For some reason, I felt that finding my meaning could be found in dark deep holes and have since explored caves around the world, (physically as well as figuratively as caving also involves exploring your own mind, in particular your fears of darkness and confined spaces.)

While in Mexico, to get out of one cave that I had explored was by ascending a slender thread of nylon rope. The only problem was that the rope was being cut by a sharp piece of rock as I moved up it. As I looked up at the fraying rope, being cut thinner than my little finger, and then at the jagged rocky floor 90 feet below I had a spiritual experience.
Later I learned that the chemicals in adrenaline helped provide me with the energy to climb the muddy wall and pass the half-cut rope and survive. But were the chemicals also responsible for making me feel there was more to life, that I was somehow connected to something bigger?
Another similar experience was after the September 11 attacks in New York City. I was supposed to be at a function at the top of one of the World Trade Center twin towers that day, but ended up remaining at work across the road, witnessing the horrendous events of what some people can do to others.
These, and subsequent, spiritual experiences could not be easily be explained by chemistry.
Rather, I began to question, to research more. This, coupled with an apparently advanced ability for abstract reasoning, helped me discover answers.
In short, the answers are not some thing physical somewhere. They, as we all sense, are something more intangible.
Over ensuing blogs I will reveal what I have discovered in my search for meaning and the answers I have been fortunate to realize – and hope that it also helps you find your own answers and meaning.
