Andrey Maksimov: "A man is on a leash, and the leash is in the hands of God"

Andrey Maksimov: "A man is on a leash, and the leash is in the hands of God"

In an issue on the YouTube channel "Own Philosophy", writer and TV presenter Andrei Maksimov shared his thoughts on what a vocation is in a person's life, gave a description of a modern school, answered questions about the meaning of life, happiness and whether a person is the master of his fate.

“I have a system of helping parents find a vocation together with their child.

Calling and calling are related words. A vocation is what a person was called to earth for. Every person has a vocation.

Another question is that no one in our country is engaged in helping a child find a vocation.

There is no such word in school, in school there is a word "career guidance". And vocational guidance is about what professions the state needs. And the vocation is about why you came to this world.

If a person found his calling, he became 50% happier, because calling is half of happiness. Half of happiness is love, half of happiness is a vocation.

And health is a bonus. There are sick happy people, and there are healthy unhappy people.

Therefore, if a person understands that a vocation is happiness and tries to find a vocation, then he is on the right path and his life will be more intelligible.

But, unfortunately, very few people do this, because no one tells them about it.

My vocation, it seems to me, is to talk. I don't own any weapon anymore. Writing is the same conversation, only on paper.

Very often a person does not find his purpose, because he is not looking for it.

First, a person undergoes a course of a young soldier in hard labor, this hard labor we call, by a misunderstanding, a school.

The school is not a school, the school does not teach anything, and it is not the institution it is meant to be.

Then the person goes to the institute and the choice of the institute determines a lot.

Very often a person goes to college to get a profession that will give more money, more fame or something else.

Everyone understands that it is not necessary to marry for convenience. It's pointless. And for some reason they choose to work according to the calculation. But this is the same nonsensical story.

To what extent is a person master of his own destiny? It seems to me that a person is on a leash, and the leash is in the hands of God.

The main property of a believer is humility. Humility is a property of very strong people. This is an understanding, not just a repetition of this phrase, but a feeling and understanding: whatever God does, everything is for the better.

It seems to me that the way a person defines the meaning of life determines this life. And any person does it.

Another thing is that someone articulates it, and someone does not.

It seems to me that the meaning of life is to have fun, but in Russian, “pleasure” is a very vulgar word.

For example, my son works in the Moscow Youth Theater, and when I come to watch his performances, I enjoy it.

Of course, you have to enjoy the work you do.

Of course, you need to enjoy communicating with people.

Of course, you need to enjoy life with the person with whom you live.

If all this does not happen, it is not clear why then you are doing this.

Happiness is associated with fulfilling desires and even finding desires. A happy person is a person who knows what he wants and accomplishes what he wants. I am definitely a happy person".
