“The Mother of Ikigai Psychology”
The "Reason for Being" is always the question. You might find the answer and might not. Find your Ikigai and live the balanced life; that should be the answer.
Now, i am almost a half century years old, living my ikigai; bonding all the philosophy readings and studying i have done, to pass it to you.
"The feeling that one is alive here and now".
"The individual awareness that drives him or her to survive".
"The sense of being alive now; an individual's consciousness as a motive to live".
"The work of the mind which integrated an "Object of Ikigai" and "Feeling of Ikigai".
"The self-actualization, the meaning of life"
"The Seikatsuso ( everyday life) which is finding meaning in life in your day to day living".
The 3 Factors of self-related level associated with having Ikigai:

"It is important to feel that you have control over your life and that you have a sense that your life is moving forward. A sense that we’re in control, and that our future is positive".
