Well, I´ll try to brake down my personal version.
I do think that we are here to experience life, simple as that. As a child we know nothing, as we get older we accumulate knowledge. I think that is
what it´s all about. Maybe we do come from the same source, and "we" as a whole profit from these billions of single lives.
Then we would have to accept though, that hitler came from the same source as ghandi, that they were two sides of the same coin. And I personally
could go along with that.
The alternative theory is that there is no real meaning and death is just the end of life.
All things considered, I do believe that there is "something" after death, whatever that may be.
And, to close that loop again, I think that the true purpose of our individual lives is to combine these experiences in the afterlife.
I know it sounds a maybe a little weird, but I do not think that we are just an accident of evolution. I do believe in evolution of course, as I do
understand science. But I see consciousness as one of the goals of the universe, maybe it´s sole purpose.
One thing is for sure though. I have never seen a dying person on his or her death bed wonder about their houses, cars or bank accounts. In the end it
is always about human connection, about relationships. It is about spouses, children and family.
So THAT should teach us that the relationships we build in our lives are the ones that count, not the monetary success.
Although it can´t hurt to earn just a little bit
