Is our goal in life to experience as many happy moments or can we call our lives as fulfilled if it was just as much suffering as friends present? Or do we have to have experienced much in life as possible so it was worth it to live at all. So could someone on a deserted island, living with his family, but everything had to be happy and good luck has happened to his life, has experienced, however, but never exciting, but say at the end of his life that his life has meaning or be happy but aimless life was just completely pointless?

The purpose of our existence is to recognize that we are not detached individuals, only their personal wishes and feelings are bound. We should recognize that ALL IS ONE AND ALL ASSOCIATED WITH EVERYTHING! The way we treat our environment with our fellow human beings, we send out vibrations and energies that act. Who can resist an open, friendly people gorgeous? It is one carried away and the day is bright and friendly! Of course it is not in our time IN, humorous and happy to go through life. Everywhere in the professional life we ??encounter stress, intrigue, ruthlessness, lies and bullying. Everything is always more to performance, success, built on image, everything has to be loud to be fast and make lots of money! On the wayside honesty, decency, tact, patience, kindness, loyalty, truthfulness, honesty, good fellowship and tolerance. Everyone has his own neighbor! But it is not what makes us happy! The psyche is broken and it makes many of us sick. We humans are social beings. We thirst for recognition, for praise, family warmth, love, respect, according to a dignified life, for happiness and joy. Only until we recognize what really matters in life what it is about really, and what we need most first, and then inserting a rethink! Is usually a blow in the form of disease, loss of a loved one, or the loss of an asset trigger a rethink. This rethinking of the meaning of our lives. We decide freely out for us, within our possibilities, taking into account our personal needs, share our lives with others, to make other people happy, to give to others, without expecting anything for themselves or to ask! Do we master this art of humanity, it will move in harmony and contentment in our hearts and we will see, eternal bliss could look like. Then we discovered the meaning of our existence and our way of life can be example for others! Increasingly deny that there is a Creator, because they can not believe that this so much injustice, cruelty and brutality on earth watching quietly. The fact that he admits that we are poisoning our planet systematically pollute, plunder, exterminate the animal world, clear-cutting forests, pollute the air we breathe, and so on. But the Creator has given us free will, his creation in such a deal to me, as we want. Who deals with the creation, in nature and their relationships deepened, must be reverent, so vast and impressive are the small miracles that we get to see. Therefore we are looking for someone who had created these wonders of the world, whether we call it God or give him another name-he is the creator of this universe. We should bow down before him reverently, to thank him and respect his work, whether we call it God or not.

Meaning of life would God give life. God's law to observe restrictions. God gives and takes and takes away when he wants whenever he wants. La Ilah illallah Muhammad Resulallah is the MEANING of each person, all others are lost. If you're praising God in this side by side in God does not forget.

I think most everyone feels that the meaning of life is to be happy or as happy as they can be. I also know that living a simple life is more fulfilling then one full of stress. In this society we live in we are always under some king of pressure or stress because of working, paying our bills and keeping up with things. But no matter how we choose to live, we always look to be happy.

I find the meaning of life is to experience as much to learn and help other people and thereby also be**n can be. Like for example if you have suffered much in the past, it falls an easier, with other people who are in need, to have compassion and to understand better. I think that everyone lives to make our world better and make some people, like the families from, or friends' lives more enjoyable.

"Fortunately, only the lucky" That says it all. If you're discouraged and annoyed, you can not see his happiness. It is wonderful that everyone decides for themselves, making or what he wants to be happy. One seeks to rule the world another contemplates his flower.

If one accepts that there is no higher purpose in life, one must look for the meaning in his life itself. I see this not as a burden but an opportunity! I find your description as possible to experience "many happy moments" (with consideration and respect for the needs of others) very aptly.
