The Immutable Laws of Living: The Inspirational Blueprint to Living Your Meaningful Life.
What defines a meaningful life is a question at the heart of Dr. Brad Miller’s interview with Dr. Lee Baucom author of The Immutable Laws of Living on Episode 020 of The Pathway to Promise podcast.
Dr. Baucom shares that he believes every person is destined to have an impact in this world, the question is whether our impact will be positive or negative and having a meaningful life is to have a purpose which gets us through the tough points in life to make a positive contribution to others.
Dr. Baucom shares with Dr. Brad his own struggles in overcoming significant health issues in his life and realizing that he now has bonus time in order to make a contribution to the greater good. Through his work in marriage and family counseling, Dr. Baucom developed a series of what he terms immutable laws of living which he unpacks on this episode of the Pathway to Promise.
Too often, Dr. Baucom contends we don’t accept the fact that life isn’t fair and we are waiting for life to be fair which doesn’t ever come. He makes the point, that we need to accept a life where it is and take advantage of our own special place in the world and move forward from where we’re at. To do otherwise is to be imprisoned by fear and scarcity. Whereas, shifting to an understanding of gratitude and abundance which comes from being generous to others can help us live a more meaningful life.
Dr. Baucom draws upon his spiritual faith as a source of power to give life meaning that there is something bigger than our own existence and to not draw on this power would be to reduce life to nothingness which certainly leads to a sense of meaninglessness.
Dr. Baucom tells Dr. Brad that there is power in human connection which anchors us to who we are and what we are all about. Relationships are always either growing or receding not staying stagnant; you can never really press the pause button on a relationship
Dr. Baucom teaches that accepting the law that life has challenges will help us grow as people. Life is not about happiness, happiness is a side effect of a meaningful life; whats more important is to designed one’s life to impact the world for the better.
Dr. Baucom goes into some depth about how people treat one another particular on the topic of forgiveness. Forgiveness helps people to be united to one another and not be stuck in a place of bitterness. Forgiveness is key to living a meaningful life.
Dr. Baucom also talks about the importance of understanding the power of one’s own death as a point of comparison; motivating us to act in a way to make our lives count every day. This also leads to meaningfulness.
