What is the meaning of life?

Melissa (@melzmac) 8 years, 11 months ago

Here it is… the question, “What is the meaning of life?” I have been thinking a lot recently about who I am, and where I am going in my life. Sometimes i feel like others are holding me back, ie. the government, parents, society etc. I know i want to make a difference and do something with my life, rather than just go to school, college, work, make money and live in this corrupt society we live it, but what really is our purpose for being here? What do you think you were meant to do with your life?

@melzmac, I think the meaning of our lives is what we make it. This is why free-will exists, the ball is in our court, life is whatever we make of it. For me personally, I think it comes down to happiness, peace and love.

I think the purpose is to come to a point of security within the unknown by having complete faith in yourself to do anything you choose

Haven’t read the whole thread so I might sound stupid but Kurt Vonnegut said in Sirens of Titan that the meaning of life is to love whoever is around to be loved. I mean, no one really knows the meaning. But that seems like a pretty beautiful way to go about living if you ask me.

@divinediscretion, I don’t think there is a universal meaning, just whatever meaning you give it.

@ballsackturtles23, Sure, it’s whatever you give it and it’s different for everyone, but loving people helps. Positive energy and whatnot makes it easier to give life meaning. Loving people is just an example of that I guess.

@melzmac, Who said there is a meaning? There is not. You just ascribe one to it.

@melzmac, Hi, I believe the meaning of life is for the universe.” We” are mere body’s with a computer on top. Our true self however is a piece of the universe . We are connected to and a piece of god, the vibrating energy of everything. We are love. Truth. All knowing. So our meaning of life is this awakening. Finding this enlightenment. we are the universe in physical thinking body’s and our enlightenment is the meaning of life.

I think this answer lies within ourselves. i read a good answer to this question. Instead of asking the meaning of life, ask “what is life, to me” or “what gives my life meaning”

@melzmac, what you should instead be asking is: “how can my life find meaning?”
