I have heard said that having a list of things to do and people to meet of at least a length of 100 items is great way to achieve these goals. It also important to look at your list often.

Also there is a concern with striking them off the list as they are accomplished. It is thought best to leave them add a check mark at the end and put the date of the attainment.

Making the list makes you realize whether or not you are just going through life or if you really know your purpose.

Good luck to you.

Thanks for your input.
I consider the list more of a fun way, for seeing what some of my wishes may be, and if I've completed a "task", I'll just strike it, because it's over. Doesn't mean that I won't do it again (and again...;-)), just that I've done it once, so I'm happy.
And these are not things I absolutely must do in my life. Most of the most important things I've already accomplished (I would die happy on the spot), just a reminder for the future.

I'd like to thank grampa chum for some ideas, though on lukeprog's thread ;-)

"Have a meaningful conversation with a beggar."

I once talked for two hours to a militant black-Muslim street preacher. The conversation ended with him naming me Satan because I wouldn't convert despite being, by all evidence, a reasonable and sympathetic young man. :-)

Wow :-))))
Well, if it's meaningful AND funny, I wouldn't have a problem with it either ;-)

WB, are you male or female?

I'm male.

Wow, you have already accomplished some impressive goals (ok, everyone can go to Disneyland, but losing the fear of death and disvovering the meaning of life is not that easy, I guess).
I used your list to establish my own (not yet published here), if you don't mind.
How did you manage to feel one with the universe, by the way, with no drugs involved?

Thanks for the compliments. I was actually inspired by lukeprog's great list.
Losing the fear of death isn't that hard, because imo actual death is an illusion that doesn't exist. Death means not seeing the beauty of the world, being detached from oneself, etc. so it only exists in your head.
As for the meaning of life, I think it's the same for every human being. It's simply put Love. Love to all beings, love to yourself, love to life. We sometimes forget this as we grow up, but every child knows this already, so you basically have to (re)connect to yourself to feel it.
You maybe know the saying: The essence of salt is its saltiness, the essence of sugar its sweetness, the essence of human beings is to love. That's all we're capable of, and why we came to be in the first place. Experiencing the love in everything that exists.
As for drugs, I have nothing against them in particular, but I believe that you can experience EVERY state a drug puts you in, by yourself without drugs. So drugs just show you what experiences you are capable of.

Wow, you are making faster progress than I am.

Well, that depends on how you look at it ;-)
