I often hear from readers about how much resonance they feel when they find the Meaning Movement. When people subscribe I send an email welcoming them and asking what they’re looking for. The responses say a lot. Here are a few recent excerpts:
- “This is a great idea!”
- “The Meaning Movement feels like an answer to prayer.”
- “This whole thing you’ve got going is awesome.”
- “I don’t normally reply to these sort of emails, but your writing has struck a chord with me.”
- “When I checked out your blog… I fell in love.”
What I’m struck by is how hungry so many of us are for meaning and how tired we are of doing work solely for the money. The manifesto covers this in brief, but there’s a hunger for work to be more than just a cog in an industrialist machine.
We want this to mean something. We want to give our lives to making an impact, to creating positive change, to doing more than just making ends meet. So many of us are on a quest to find our purpose, or find a deeper expression of it.
As much as I want to be the most novel blogger on the planet and hope my writing is fresh and new in many ways, I want to talk about others who are doing similar work. Why? Because in many ways we’re all on the same team. We’re trying to make a difference. We’re trying to sound a wake up call and start a revolution.
Or at least I am.
