What is planted in each person's soul will sprout.

What do people value in life? How much of what gives people satisfaction in their lives is fundamental and shared across cultures, and how much is unique to a given society? To understand these and other issues, Pew Research Center posed an open-ended question about the meaning of life to nearly 19,000 adults across 17 advanced economies.
For this report, we conducted nationally representative Pew Research Center surveys of 16,254 adults from March 12 to May 26, 2021, in 16 advanced economies. All surveys were conducted over the phone with adults in Canada, Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan. Responses are weighted to be representative of the adult population in each public. Respondents in these publics were asked the following open-ended question: “We’re interested in exploring what it means to live a satisfying life. What aspects of your life do you currently find meaningful, fulfilling or satisfying?” Responses were transcribed by interviewers in the language in which the interviews were conducted.
In the United States, we surveyed 2,596 adults from Feb. 1 to 7, 2021. Everyone who took part in the U.S. survey is a member of the Center’s American Trends Panel (ATP), an online survey panel that is recruited through national, random sampling of residential addresses. This way nearly all adults have a chance of selection. The survey is weighted to be representative of the U.S. adult population by gender, race, ethnicity, partisan affiliation, education and other categories. In the U.S., respondents were asked a slightly longer version of the same question: “We’re interested in exploring what it means to live a satisfying life. Please take a moment to reflect on your life and what makes it feel worthwhile – then answer the question below as thoughtfully as you can. What about your life do you currently find meaningful, fulfilling or satisfying? What keeps you going and why?”

The topic of faith, religion and spirituality is also one where some societies notably differ. Outside of the U.S., religion is never one of the top 10 sources of meaning cited – and no more than 5% of any non-American public mention it. In the U.S., however, 15% mention religion or God as a source of meaning, making it the fifth most mentioned topic. For some, the emphasis on religion is about their personal relationship with Jesus: “I follow Jesus so my faith and hope is based on how he plays a role in my life. I don’t rely on any human to benefit my life.” Others note the benefits that come from being part of organized religion, such as camaraderie in a tough time: “My husband just died, so life is not very fulfilling right now. The support of family and friends, church, and his coworkers have helped me find meaning, as well as thinking about the good things we shared.” Evangelical Protestants in the U.S. are much more likely than mainline Protestants to mention faith as a source of meaning – 34% vs. 13%, respectively. Across all U.S. religious groups, those who attend religious services more often are much more likely to cite their religion in their answer than those who are less frequent attendees.

Camren as a Name//Let Us Unite
We all know that our fandom name was invented by Lauren in 2012/2013 and that it is the composition of Camila's and Lauren's names.
But, I don't know if Lauren knew at that time that Camren was a real name and today, I just found the meaning of that name.
And it is beautiful
Tumblr media
Let's unite.
That's what we did as a fandom. I don't know you folks, but I still thank Lauren that she changed the name from Laurmila to Camren even if she publicly hates it.
PD: There's an actress called Camren Bicondova, I still laugh about this and the fact that Lauren knew her because Camren was another Guess model before Camila took Lauren's place in that campaign.

I have come to realise it doesn't make much sense to ponder the meaning of life; that it is a question induced by melancholy; that an answer is not really what we are looking for. Does it not disappear the minute we find joy again? Who, when finally seized by a great desire to love, to dance, to work, still wonders: what is the meaning of life?

Saying that life is meaningless is like stepping into a wilderness and saying there is no shelter.
The fact that we have the ability and inclination to build shelter, to make meaning, is a message from the universe.
It says, "what you are will provide what you need."

What your rising sign (or ascendant) says about you
Tumblr media
Please note: your rising sign isn't enough to determine your whole personality, but it still says a lot! To truly understand one's chart we need to look at it as a whole - all of it's placements, aspects and so on.
Aries: some of the most expressive faces out there! Straight-forward and direct, your dynamism is unmatched by anybody. You come off as opinionated and confident, so much so some people could be intimidated by you. Strong mental energy, you likely enjoy debates. You like autonomy and desire independence.
Taurus: these natives (unless there are other opposite strong energies in the chart) love comfort. You avoid change, chaos and anything too loud. You come off as serene, kind and gentle, as well as sensual. Your strength is in your perseverance and consistency. You're well-liked.
Gemini: others perceive you as curious and talkative. You're quite the social butterfly, versatile and adaptable, multitasking comes as second nature to you. You and your thoughts are both quick and you could easily get impatient with others.
Cancer: you're the person most people turn to for advice. You know how to listen and can be a great empath. You're naturally intuitive and your gut instinct is never wrong. You're automatically well liked by most people you meet and are very generous and caring towards your loved ones. You instinctively know what others need.
Leo: talented and creative, you become the focus of any room and conversation without even trying. You have a strong desire to become ''somebody''. You're kind, fun and optimistic. You find the magic in any day. It's important you're comfortable showing the world who you truly are.
Virgo: you see the world in a rational way. You may suffer from self criticism from time to time. You're practical, like to be of help and feel ''busy'' or productive. You enjoy doing things for others and can be a very supportive and stable presence in the lives of your loved ones. You could be very picky about your food.
Libra: you're quite attractive, social and witty. Your thinking's sharp and you like to see both sides of the argument. You could be one that changes their mind quite easily. You're great with words but could be easily imposed upon. You're a lover of the arts and quite talented. A great sense of social justice.
Scorpio: quite intense, people are either fascinated or intimidated by you. No matter how bubbly you may be their first impression of you will always be ''mysterious and captivating''. You have a strong and confident presence and great intuition. Sensitive. You can get to the heart of things.
Sagittarius: easy going and open minded, you approach life with optimism and hope! You're often the life of the party and make the best jokes. You could be naturally spiritually inclined as well as very adventurous. You like to learn and can be very enthusiastic about life.
Capricorn: you're patient and capable of mastering careful tasks. You're very ambitious. Others likely see you as a capable leader and gravitate towards you. You likely had to grow up fast and may sometimes feel like life is meant to be hard for you. You come off as serious and reliable.
Aquarius: you're very aware of social dynamics and have a great drive for social causes. Great observation skills, unique ideas and a mastery at self expression make you a very interesting persona. Highly intellectual as well as intuitive. You may be somewhat rebellious, but you're concerned with the benefit of the group. You may come off as aloof sometimes.
Pisces: one of the strongest intuitions out there, you're highly gifted. May have prophetical dreams. Easily pick up on unseen energies and influences. A dreamy look. You may feel like no one knows who you truly are because you project a different version of yourself every time. Creative, strong imagination. Talented in any form of abstract artistic expression.

It’s true that some philosophers say that Nothing exists, except in dreams, that our words carry meaning like the hidden roots of stars, that ideas flake off the walls of our metaphors like old paint.

How Else Is Meaning Found?
How Else Is Meaning Found?
~ Commemorate The sacred places ~ Of beauty, memory and significance ~ How else is meaning found In odd corners of earth ~ But the human stories Enacted on that ground? ~ It is not chance That will elaborate ~ Each single human Mystery ~ But acts of intention Told ~ Remembered Shared as history. ~

Choice is the most powerful tool we have. Everything boils down to choice. We exist in a field of infinite possibilities. Every choice we make shuts an infinite number of doors and opens an infinite number of doors. At any point, we can change the direction of our lives by a simple choice. It is all in our hands, our hearts, and our minds.
