IKIGAI - the Japanese way of managing your life

CC-by-sa ethify.org & rasos

Ikigai (生き甲斐, pronounced [ikiɡai]) is a Japanese concept meaning "a reason for being". Everyone, according to the Japanese, has an ikigai. Finding it requires a deep and often lengthy search of self. Such a search is regarded as being very important, since it is believed that discovery of one's ikigai brings satisfaction and meaning to life.

The term ikigai is composed of two Japanese words: iki (生き?), referring to life, and kai (甲斐?), which roughly means "the realisation of what one expects and hopes for".

In the culture of Okinawa, ikigai is thought of as "a reason to get up in the morning"; that is, a reason to enjoy life. In a TED Talk, Dan Buettner referenced ikigai as one of the reasons people in the area had such long lives.

Aktuell haben 3,356.375 Millionen Europäer und Europäerinnen die Initiative gegen die Transatlantischen Freihandelsabkommen TTIP und CETA unterschrieben. Die Europäische Initiative (EBI) fordert die Europäische Union und die Mitgliedstaaten dazu auf, die TTIP-Verhandlungen mit den USA zu stoppen, sowie das Umfassende Wirtschafts- und Handelsabkommen (CETA) mit Kanada nicht zu ratifizieren.

Die möglichen Auswirkungen und Folgen die das transatlantische Handels- und Investitionsabkommen hat, nämlich die Handlungshemmnisse zu beseitigen und somit dem „Chlorhühnchen“, „Genmais“ sowie „Gensoja“ freie Fahrt zu bereiten, sind mittlerweile bekannt.
