    What Is Life?

    Since my childhood, I had this day dreaming thing and sometimes i would end up dreaming every goal achieved in life and then even when I would accomplish everything, there would be an emptiness, every time. I have grown up, I have seen different phases of life. And I'm still...

    Think about this; if the universe had no life, there might as well be no universe at all. How would you know? There would be no one around to determine whether on not it exists.  Take the old saying: If a tree falls and no one is around to here it, does it make a sound. Yes...

    Another Possible Answer

    From Big Bang, to Entropy, and back again, One heartbeat in the energy of the Universe, Love manifest in physical matter.   From Conception, to re-Unification, and on again, One heartbeat in the energy of the Spirit, Love manifest in living matter.

    A Possible Meaning of Life...

    I read the other day that the meaning/purpose of life is a school for the soul, where we each have planned what we need to learn to become a better person.  Thru adversity we can test the strength of our soul.  Also, so that God can experience life thru us.  If you...

    Your Meaning Expresses Your Sense Of Self

    When I was young, I used to believe that there was an absolute meaning, and I could figure it out if I studied enough about religion and other people, and I could find the exact, right course for my life. I thought that somehow, meaning came from outside of me, and it was a...

    I'm going through a transitional phase in my

    life. Everything is changing, if only it was for the better, but unfortunately it's not. I feel like I'm regressing instead of progressing. I can't stand life anymore, hope is escaping me bit by bit. I have these obscure thoughts, I keep thinking of the meaning of life. I feel...

    Meaning of Life?

    I find it funny when people ask that question. I regard it as a category mistake. It's like asking if Tuesday is blue. It doesn't make any sense. To me life has no meaning except what you project onto it. Life only has a subjective meaning and to each of us it is totally...

    That Can't Be It...

    Why do some people tell us that the meaning of life is to get married and have children? Does our only purpose consist of passing on our genetic code? That would imply that people who don't happen to have kids are losers somehow, and I can't believe that.
