As humans, we constantly try to define our meaning and existence on planet Earth. What is this? Why are we here? What’s my purpose? I don’t know about you, but I constantly find myself asking these questions.

The curiosity inside me to know what life is about can be overwhelming at times…

Every now and then, I tend to experience a rollercoaster of emotions. Some days I feel grateful for my existence, and others I feel like everything is meaningless.

Whenever I find myself stuck in the “Everything is meaningless” phase, I try to snap out of it by watching thought provoking videos.

The following are some of my favorite videos. I hope they will expand your mind. Good luck!
