I agree with these good points.Existence wrote:Embracing my mortality, understanding it is as much a part of life as is living has freed me from times limits. Knowing there is nothing I can do to prevent my dying relieves me of filling my life with distractions. It has allowed me to view my existence as a journey, free from expectation and without destination, but rather an opportunity to learn, to become conscious of my existence and to appreciate that I live.
However, I find your point on 'life's pointlessness', pointless and unnecessary (where possible).By embracing life's pointlessness it freed me form life's pursuits. It returned me to myself. It caused me to realize that the meaning of life for me, is found in the knowledge gained while living and not in the end result.
I think it would be more effective to understand and accept life as a cycle of emergence(birth) and inevitable death.
From there, we make our whole conscious-life-cycle as meaningful (optimistic) as possible.
There is no need to deliberate on any pointlessness (pessimistic) of life or after life.
Nevertheless, I am aware and it is unfortunate for some that their brain neural structures and neuro-transmitters impose on them a sense that life is pointless and meaningless. Where possible, such a sense of meaningless should be avoided by using our will or other means.
