Your worldview is the set of lenses through which you see the world around you. It can tell you a lot about what you are living for and why.

Key Points:

  • Life after death. Many people have different ideas about what happens when you die. 
  • Meaning and purpose. According to some, life has whatever meaning you give it. Others believe in their religious ideals and worship a higher power like nature, a god, or gods; they view this as their purpose.
  • God or no God? Some people believe that there is just one god. Some people believe that there are hundreds of thousands of gods. Some don’t even think there is any form of a god but are still religious, believing in a supernatural guiding principle like karma in Hinduism.

Quote This:

It is always good to explore the stuff you don’t agree with, to try and understand a different lifestyle or foreign worldview. I like to be challenged in that way, and always end up learning something I didn’t know. –Laura Linney
