Well,my parents bring me to this world,I have no choice.When I was young,I often ask my mother why she give me life.It is because I can't find the meaning of life at that time,so I lossed in the day that won't change forever. But when I graduate from colledge and have to work to raise myself,I found It is difficult for me to make dream come true.Then I decide to learn more at school,prepare for the future,so that I can spent shorter time to make my dream come true.During the process I decide to continue my study,the meaning of life unfold in my head.I realised that no matter what you pursuit in your short life,as long as your dream don't hurt other people,the feeling of be satisfy with the course and the result. So earn money or eat delicious food may be not bad!You gain it by work hard,enjoy the course and the result.I don't think dream can be classified as meaning or meanless. That is my feeling about life.I don't know what kind of life do you want,but I'd like to communicate with you about this topic.By the way,some words can't express my thought exactly,no matter what place you don't agree or you don't understand for my poor English level,we chat through message.Happy mylotting!~

Hi Yunzhige I am appreciating you that you are searching for it. It is true that parent give us life. We have to work hard otherwise we can't exist in this compititive world. But in this busy world we forget something. What is the main purpose of life. Due to blessing of GOD only we again come to this world through our Parent. But when we came to this world we forget GOD, Isn't it? Isn't it our duty to give some time for him???????????

I live in this world to enjoy life. I am not going to spend my time thinking about the meaning of life. I think life has no meaning other than the meaning we give it. It is good that one day we die, living forever would be a terrible nightmare because living 70 or 80 years makes us think about the meanin gof life; we can imagine how much more we would worry about the meaning of life if we had to live forever.

Oh my Dear, 'Enjoyment' is a very very meaningful concept. Enjoyment is meant for getting pleasure. What you have enjoyed you must be getting pleasure. But think on it. The pleasure was momemntary. Still you are running after it only spending your life. You are not satisfied. Therefore expecting more and more pleasure by different means. Are you sure of living for a longer period ? No. The next moment may being an end to your life. Do not go by what others are doing. Ok. Others are enjoying their life. So what they are getting out of it. Following them what you will get. At the end you will see that your life was just a fun. To make it meaning ful you should at least think on it. Think of your self. You are not mear a body. You are different from it. So Start searching yourself. You can get yourself from within you. If you think yourself as body then its ok. You may enjoy yourself till you are living. A step forward towards searching yourslef will lead and pave your way towards enlightenment. Thousand ways are there to start. Life is not just to spend it like a animal. Animals ,birds and many other creatures of the nature are enjoying their life as they like. Are you not different from them ? If so then you should take a different approach to life. I am ready to discuss further only on your response. Thanks.

If you are talking about our purpose in life then no, eating, drinking and making merry is not our only aim. Rather our aim should be the salvation of our soul.

Thanks I thought life is gifted by God. So this is also our responsibility that we have to remember him. In our busy life some times we forget it what is our actual purpose of life. So please spend atlease 5 to 10 minitue from your life may be morning or evining or any time for God.

Hi there STS! I can say, personally, that I am living here in the world for my family. I believe that we are given the gift of life so that we will be able to see and experience the beauty of life and all of God's creations. We all have a purpose, responsibilities to be a good Christian and live like how God would like us to. We have lessons to learn, people to inspire , to love, to give, and a lot more. It is hard to say specifically what our life's purpose but i believe that everything else leads back to God.

It almost sounds like the age old question "What is the meaning of life?". I wished I could figure it out for myself, because I think it is different for all people. Some people are out there just coasting through life doing only what need be done. Then there are others like Donald Trump and Warren Buffet who are doing all that they can do. I have a friend who really wants to make a difference in this world. And even though we are the same age, and have been lifelong friends, I kind of think of her as a mentor. She is an amazing woman, I wished I could even slightly compare. Good luck to you in all of your ventures! And by the way, welcome to myLot!

Ok my dear friend. I am happy to see that you are on the way of searching the meaning of life. Actually objective of life is different from person to person. Man is not born just to live like an anmimal or bird or insects. Human life is for some other purpose. We are different from them. We can best utilise our mind . Only man possess a good brainial capacity to judge what is wrong and right, good and bad, prospective and destructive. But to locate the exact purpose and objective of life one should go ahead. So that we can make a difference in this world. It is clearly explained in " Bhagawat Gita" i.e the holly advises of Lord Krishna to the entire humanity. Thanks.

Hi sts, That's a good question for everyone and we may all have different answers. If you are asking that age old question which humans have asked since the beginning of time, no one has the answer. Some may think they do,some will even say they are sure of it, but that just isn't possible. I feel that I am here to interact with other people to learn from them and for them to learn from me. I am here to help others and to realize that I have something to contribute and maybe even to guess what comes after this life, what is the next great adventure.Blessings.

I believe each and every one of our lives is much more than the things you mention, the relationships we have within our families, the smiles we give, the help we give, the roles we play for different people that sorround us, even the interaction we have with strangers, how we touch other people's lives (hopefully more positively than negatively) are all much more important than the basics of earning money, food and other basic needs we have as individuals. No man is an island and we all stand together with others to make this world go round. Strive to do your best at all times and the rest will just fall into place..
