Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are going through very challenging times worldwide which will
surely deliver a great deal of suffering for most of us.
This is a time when we need to find hope and strength within ourselves to make it to the next stage. As such, I wanted to share with you some food for the soul and recommend you one of the greatest written works about mankind and our search for ourselves:
"Man's Search for Meaning" By Dr Viktor E. Frankl.
This book is the work of the Psychiatric Dr Viktor E. Frankl while he was a Jewish prisoner in different concentration camps during WW2. The main message he evokes is that as humans, we can find life meaning through our pain and suffering by making evident the importance of establishing one's purpose in this life.
Dr Frankl's work is still incredibly relevant in today's society and it might help all of us find a better meaning to ourselves and our society during this current pandemic, as well as help us utilise our current misfortunes as a source of personal strength.
You can find the book in its written form or in audiobook form. You can actually find the audiobook version free to listen in YouTube.
If a man found the key to the meaning of life during one of the worse hardships that modern mankind has ever seen, then his message is one to be taken with the utmost thoughtfulness, especially during times likes this one.
Thank you Dr Frankl.
