Ever wondered about life? What is the meaning of life to you? There is is no correct answer for this question. Although there is no answer discovered, it is something of our opinion. We decide what the meaning of life is. I have not yet found an answer to this question. Have you? What is the meaning of life? Does this familiar question frighten you if you think about it. This question is the deepest and most bizarre question ever discovered. What is the meaning of life? It's your choice!

A very good answer but as you can see, us living beings (humans mostly) are not doing a very good job are we? It's a pity that the earth dying because of us.

I believe the meaning of life is mucher simpler than one might think. Consider the idea that you are a being, a consciousness, all alone in the universe because, well...because you are the universe and all it is made up of. Would it feel... empty? Consider the idea that you could split yourself into thousands upon billions upon a gazillion pieces, to experience this existence differently. Would you do it? Or would you remain alone. Is loneliness inherently a human/animal quality? Or could it exist on other planes? Maybe the meaning of life is just that...to experience life as a separate being to keep things fresh and new. Maybe we are all small pieces of God, like cells, that experience living for the plain and simple purpose of experiencing.

Hi, I agree with the above person that life is all about helping each other and spreading love and peace. As a human we have tremendous capability to create some thing new. So we have to make use of that capability and creat something which will beenfit the generations which are yet to come. Unfortunately most of us are doing just the opposite. Cheers, Tutul

there would always be that point in our lives that we come to ask about what is the real meaning and reason of us being alive. honestly, i bet i have the answer to this question. i believe that when you come to realize what is your purpose of living then you will know what's the meaning of your life. how does this work? it's simple. take for instance, if as a baker you know your purpose is to bake delectable breads or cakes. then your actions will eventually flow according to what's your purpose. you will then start to build and equip yourself with skills that would make you a better baker and then later aim to be the best of who you can be given such purpose. such purpose creates in you the reference point from which directs you to where and how you would start your life. how can you know the meaning of your life if you don't even know where and how to start it with. knowing your purpose gives you an idea of what is the meaning of your life. it shapes your life. your purpose allows you to create a map with routes from which you would travel and journey as a pilgrim which would provide you the opportunities to witness the beauty and wellness of life. the question shouldn't start upon the meaning of life but rather it should start upon your life's purpose.
