Answers to The Most Important Questions of Life and Existence from a Spiritual Perspective

Most people unfortunately never struggle to think about or find answers for the following basic questions of existence and the origin, nature and destiny of life. The answers to these questions will consciously or unconsciously condition, empower or limit almost everything in that individual's life.

Albert Einstein said that the most basic question of life was; "is the universe safe." From your answer to that question you would then structure all of your values and behaviors. Einstein had a good starting question and perspective, but there is a lot more to the many basic questions of existence that every person must manage and resolve to some degree who wishes a life full of meaning and well being.

Answering the most important questions of existence is not just a one time affair and your done. Answering the most important questions of existence is a life-long task where your initial answers over time will evolve and continually deepen and broaden.

To answer the most basic questions of existence as completely and accurately as possible it is first essential to answer these questions from two distinct perspectives. These two distinct perspectives are:

a.) Ultimate Reality known through objective science, (as we do in Religion 2.0 and Evolution Spirituality,) and then

b.) Ultimate Reality known through either subjective individual spiritual experience, and/or the truth validation of some spiritual experience or belief by a spiritual community of the competent or, the near universal reoccurrence of some principle or truth reality discovered independently within the core of most religions.

These two perspectives are essential to allow humanity to find both a common rational ground and to allow for metaphorical meaning making and interpretation essential to healthy living in relation to the most basic questions of existence. After answering the basic questions of existence from both perspectives ideally there should be a high congruence between the deepest core answers found with both of these perspectives. This is because the Ultimate Reality of subjective religious and spiritual experience, which is normally credited to be the originator and/or sustainer of the evolving universe, is theoretically either reflective or essentially the same Ultimate Reality of the objective physical universe that we know through science.

Ultimate Reality should theoretically and ultimately appear highly congruent to itself when viewed from both complimentary core objective and subjective perspectives whether these perspectives are found within the deep patterns of the evolutionary universe or within the deep wisdom of humanity’s spiritual heritage. When both of these perspectives are integrated and aligned there should be far more complementary similarities and congruence than glaring incongruities.

The Answers to Life's Most Important Questions from an Objective Scientific Perspective.

Once you have completed your answers to these questions from an objective scientific perspective and understanding Ultimate Reality as being defined as o­nly the totality and wholeness of the evolving physical universe you can then compare those answers to the answers that you will do when you answer the same questions below using your subjective spiritual experience and understanding of Ultimate Reality.

The Most Important Questions of Existence and Life from a Spiritual Perspective

In the second part of getting answers to the most important questions of life all that we are concerned with is Ultimate Reality known through:

a.) either subjective individual religious experience, or
b.) the truth validation of some religious dogma or belief by a religious community of the competent or,
c.) the near universal reoccurrence of some principle or truth reality discovered independently within the core of most religions.

Here is where you get to answer the following questions below with the meanings and metaphors derived exclusively from what you have personally spiritually experienced, from what you know a religious community of the competent has found to be deep truth or, from what you have learned to be the near universal reoccurrence of some principle or truth reality discovered independently within the core of most religions.

The following are the most important life questions that relate or our origin, nature and destiny to have accurate answers that will empower a happy and effective life in the world as it is. Any time spent deepening and broadening your current answers to these questions below is time that will be rewarded abundantly! These most important questions in life below are presented in sections of similar content and focus.

When answering the questions below use any definition of Ultimate Reality from a spiritual perspective. For a comprehensive listing of those spiritual perspectives, click here.
