Bring to light your cherished principles, values, hopes and dreams into a personal plan for authentic living. This is the counter concept to "the purpose-driven life." There is an art to making meaning that isn't taught in any school, church, boardroom or home.
Get weekly lessons that help you turn your passion into action and your principles into a life plan you can sustain. Learn how to fill your days with meaning, stop procrastinating, and bring new richness to everything you do.
Join Eric Maisel, family therapist, creativity coach and bestselling author, as he spells out the art of making meaning. Life is as worthwhile as you make it. Banish meaninglessness by working some existential magic! If the atheist, rationalist, secular-humanist, skeptical, free-thinking, or existential tradition appeals to you, you will especially appreciate Maisel’s insights.
Learn how to invest meaning, where to put it, how to withdraw it, and what returns you should expect from this practice. Picture one of your typically busy days, where a lot gets done with no sense of accomplishment. Now picture that day transformed, artfully redesigned so that you experience islands of meaning in a sea of hurry.

Spirituality for the free-thinker
The music is a bit cheesy, but the message is very interesting. Discussions about "meaning" are often dominated by speakers who profess faith in supernatural entities. Dr. Maisel's perspective is refreshing; he outlines a way to lead a morally satisfying life without accepting truths that can't possibly be known (i.e., whether gods exist). If the idea of "meaning" with gods upsets you, check out episode 8 before you dismiss or criticize the podcast.
This podcast is fantastic. It shows you that finding yourself is an illusion and creating yourself is the reality. I agree that this isn't a very spiritual option, but spiritual options are just another way of deluding yourself. Making meaning is what we do instinctually and it's nice to have someone point that out to us. Very well done.
There is no way to find true meaning and fullfillment in life without the guidance of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. If you are honest with yourself you will know it is true. Please do not wander down this path and realize it was the wrong one when it's too late. God bless you...I hope He touches your lives as He has mine so that your eyes can be opened.
