This question has been asked for millenia. If we truly had the answer to this question, we'd know where we came from, and where we are going. We would know our goal, and we would know when we arrived at that goal.

However, there are those who have an opinion...


“Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.” Joseph Campbell


“To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end of life.”


“When you learn to appreciate everything around you, that is when you have found the true meaning of life. But when you have learned to love another with all your heart, that is when you have finally understood and start to actually fulfill the purpose of your existence.” Jamine Isabel E. Uy


“As soon as you look at the world through an ideology you are finished. No reality fits an ideology. Life is beyond that. … That is why people are always searching for a meaning to life… Meaning is only found when you go beyond meaning. Life only makes sense when you perceive it as mystery and it makes no sense to the conceptualizing mind.” Anthony de Mello



“The Ultimate Answer to Life, The Universe and Everything is...42!” Douglas Adams

To learn about the physical universe until we understand that:-

1. Love is the basis for everything (Quote - "Love one and other as I have loved you")
2. Your soul/energy matrix is boundless and has & will exist beyond our concept of time. (Reincarnation/Resurrection)
3. Do as you would be done by. (self explanatory)

IMHO.

Love together with wisdom to end the cycle of birth and death.


"Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. 4 "But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time ; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase."

Daniel 12:3-4


IMO .

The fact that you guys have different opinions says something...

Noone really knows nor can it be proven or else everyone would agree on what the meaning of life is..

ATS and the Oakland Raiders when it's cold.

ATS and the NY Mets during the summer.

Hang with family all year round, enjoy being with your loved ones and try everyday to be a better person by learning from your mistakes.
We are here. There doesn't have to be a meaning. If we concentrate too much on a meaning, we're likely to miss out on what we're supposed to be doing; living.

MAYBE to LEARN how to better conduct yourself in the HEAVENS (whatever you see them as) with other CREATOR CREATIONS that had to go thru similar evolution processes.

What is the meaning of life? "BE FRUITFUL and MULTIPLY"...and "DOMINATE"; as God commanded Adam. That IS the reason for our existence. Jesus also said: "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth......but rather store up treasures in heaven." How does a person store up treasures in heaven? Abraham taught us that. FAITH + WORKS = Treasures in Heaven.

People don't understand the meaning of God's word...because they read God's WORD....like it's a novel. Nah....peoples......it's a guideline for the MEANING OF LIFE!

B.I.B.L.E. means Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth. It's earth's instruction manual. No wonder why people don't know how to use their equipment PROPERLY. Ya gotta read the MANUAL!
Most people just open their BIBLE, like it's a newly bought piece of technology. They leave the manual inside the box...and throw the box away. Then, they ask: "How do you use this thing?" Like....duuuuuuuuuuuuuh

to LOVE.

to be compassionate and forgiving, kind-hearted, supportive and loving.

to understand that life cannot be lived without suffering.

our time here on Earth is a learning experience and we are here to remember what we already know.



Life cannot grow without challenges; and pains, miseries, sufferings bring challenges. You cannot become aware without suffering. Suffering evokes awareness in you. - Osho

And yet the 'experience' of life still exists, which means it must have some sort of meaning. Everything has meaning.....

What is the meaning of life?


The meaning of life is different for every person.Ask 100 people and you'll get 100 different answers.
For some is to gain knowledge and learn as much as possible,for others it's to help others,while to many is just to survive another day.

In my humble opinion there is no right or wrong answer ro this question.

How could we give a vital response to ‘what is the meaning of life’ with out basically knowing how to elucidate our less-than-ideally-behaved, seemingly-imperfect human problem? I came across an article here which will give really good answer to our selfish and aggressive self. Read the following and share your thoughts

To experience life and learn valuable life lessons. To make mistakes and learn from them. See what works and what doesn't so you don't repeat the ones that aren't beneficial to anyone.

I don't think we are meant to know these things (yet). Life would be pretty boring if you knew the outcome to every situation.

It makes it that much more interesting not knowing what is coming next.
