So here's a question that has probably been asked since the dawn of human cognition, but what IS the meaning of life? As a renowned cynic I don't personally think that any one person has any meaning in the spiritual sense. In the basic terms I guess the meaning of life can be described as the will to survive, to stay healthy and to keep the species going. I know that many people may have their own views on what the meaning of life is, so that is why I'm proposing this question to you all, as it is my belief that the meaning of life is not the meaning of one person, but the meaning of an entire species.

It's true that everyone have different view on what really is the meaning of life but for me I think the meaning of life is to fulfill your purpose in life, to be what you need to be and that's it.

What is the meaning of life? That question can never be answered incorrectly, because the answer is different for everyone. All of our minds look at this question and interpret it a different way. For you to look for the correct answer is a mission you can not complete. I believe the meaning of life is to explore ourselves and never understand why we are here. It is a question that should not be answered.

Even with spirituality aside, for me, the meaning of life is answered daily through the following verse: James 1:5 Each can try to define their meaning, but we all need to start somewhere. Where do you start? You can choose your own start, that verse just makes it easier for me.

the meaning of life is subjective. it is affected by individual perception, interpretation, and state of mind, among others. so finding the specific meaning is next to impossible unless you want to answer it yourself.

To reconcile self-consciousness with the consciousness of the world, every man is the end of the labor of the resulting meaning of life. Man puts the question, what is the meaning of life?''That felt urgent, even violent, six expressed the need for honest, full and open relationships with his peers. Exhaustion of this impulse is impossible otherwise than forand deep within himself, on the one hand, and on the other alive. No uncontrolled open, oily to life, no rigid closure itself can not separate access to so indulge. The meaning of life is still a matter of conscience ...

The meaning of life depends on the bearer of life. some people say that life is unfair and unjust. Some people say life is good. It really depends on your self on how you view your life. But for me life means a miracle of God. as of now I don't know the real purpose of life in this world. i simply keep moving on to know the answer.

Life is the education of God's children. There is a lot to learn that is why one lifetime will not be enough. In time you will do it all and be it all. You will acquire great wisdom and learn how to love unconditionally. So now you might ask. Why children? Just like every parent knows, God knows children make like Grand!!! One doesn't have to have children, however life is so much better with them. Have children???? Got to get them a well rounded education. Yes, you are right. We are all spiritual beings in our true nature. These physical bodies are no more than our transportation. The adventure continues!!

Well, the question is pretty vague to be answered accurately. If you're looking for a more specific and literal meaning, grab your Webster's dictionary and look it up. If you wanna know what MY meaning of life is, I'll probably say it's about having fun while also being responsible for yourself and your loved ones.
