The meaning of life

I am not worthy to tackle this subject. To battle ‘The meaning of life’. A culmination of hope and a persistence to overcome that which we cannot face. With no prior warning we are thrust into life. No understanding of that by which we are bound. We often cannot find true happiness imbedded within our mind. We are unable to comprehend that we in fact all alien beings, it contradicts that which we see all about us. Oneness is a contradiction of individuality. There is no ‘meaning of life’ per se, life just happens to be that way. The ‘meaning of life’ for you is most probably that which you might wish to be. But we are all different fish in an ocean of millions, all with a different wish. The ‘meaning of life’ is as complex as life itself. I’ll let someone more worthy than I contemplate this subject. Someone who can adequately express in words this most challenging concept. The meaning of life - until then, remains a mystery.

Hmm... it is a hard subject to comprehend! I sometimes realize that when we attach expectations and judgments to everything that happens, then it becomes hard to understand the meaning of life. When we observe everything as is, then to me everything looks just right. I try my best to stay aware of that every moment which is hard at many times... -Smita

I think it is very important for every person to answer just such a question if they hope to have some success in life. For me it is only to do actions that are meaningful. To get up each day and be a positive force no matter the slings and arrows I may face. Have a great day friend.
