Are you a money mongrel...can't get enough? Or do you live a thrifty life style? Do you share your wealth with people less fortunate?

"What is the meaning of life? The answer is so simple that most overlook it or look to far into it that they miss it completely. In my opinion the answer is given in the question. LIFE, plain and simple. No matter what we do each day it all starts with Life. There are no holidays or special occasions, the sun rises and the sun sets everyday, each day the same as the last. Life is all that changes. Life is ours to live, no one else can live it for us. This is our LIFE!".

The decisions we make dictate the life we have.
Follow your dreams, for those that do not will only try to discourage others.

The meaning of life is whoever or whatever climbs to the top of the food chain wins!



(...just throwing that out there!!!! But there is a lot of credence to that in the real world.)

Be good.

As for material gain......



...agreed, except for the heavenly nod. So I guess it's "be good, learn, and teach." Have not had coffee yet, more to come.

Probably the most subjective question ever asked! Nice thread to start. I have had different answers for this question at different times of my life.

The meaning of life is:

To create new life.

To make ourselves feel as good and as comfortable as possible.

To create something that people will remember so the blip we leave behind will be as big as possible.

To suffer.

To love someone so hard that you want to live forever with them.

To be a hero.

To be the best at what you do.

Sometimes I feel like life doesn't mean shit. that we are just here because the stars aligned just right and or however you want to describe it and life was just created. But there is no meaning to it. Other times I think... Shit I'm here, I love that girl over there and she is the meaning of my life... Or like my family is the meaning... Or if I had children.

Why does there have to be meaning? Can't it just be? Sometimes things just are, and we are looking for something that isn't there and forgetting to just be.

Meanings are just labels we give to thing to tell them from one another. Life itself doesn't need a meaning, it only progresses in the only way it can. So, yeah, finding a meaning to it is, at most, impeding on its progress, if anything. So, I suppose life is meant to be lived, not questioned, if that makes sense.

And by saying that, I've officially made myself a hypocrite.

Ahh Georgey Boyo, nice sentiment. So, do we get out of the way? Do we keep plodding on even though it only ranks as a sympathy vote? "Old Bugger, what do you know?" Quite a lot you young prick. I guess as Felix noted, it depends on your stage.

The meaning of life is simple and Bob Dylan said it best: "It's just life and life only", Just for us to live with the defining moments we might find or might find us where we stand. And there really is no meaning just live it because from the moment we are born we begin to die, so why sit and look at all and try to find meaning to something that can't be easily explained. It would chew up what time we have here just to try and find the meaning of it, and in a lot of cases life is nasty brutish and short so why not just live it and not try to explain it and as Dylan said It's just life and life only

Life...it is a journey without meaning or purpose beyond what you make it. Will you be generous, selfish...will you fight for yourself or others?.

Life is a book, the greatest story never written! each page a new day, each chapter a new stage of the journey. There is no spoilers, there is no flipping ahead. We can only read to turn the page to find what happens next. Will your story be a short tragedy? an epic tale to be sung by the finest bards? be it Fate or Destiny that designs how many pages, how many chapters...how many books you'll live. We each will one day read the last page, we each will close the cover and reflect on how horrid, how magnificent, humorous, heroic....and so on that life was...we choose the path...we hold the pen...we write our stories...

where will yours take you?

Oh yeah...I knew the meaning of life definitely has something to do with writing stories...I think that's why I joined Lush in the first place, if I recall correctly...

Thanks F-dragon for confirming that...I feel much better already...Regaeman Man

Life is an absurdity it is a mystery, you need not search for meaning, you have just to live it, enjoy it ! Life should not be taken as a problem, once you start that way you are lost, once you think life is a problem it can never be solved, Life has no goal, if you have a goal you are against life, Life moves not like a business, it moves like poetry, life moves not from the head, it moves from the heart, it is a romance :)

the meaning of life is the pursuit of happiness, and to find what you love about life, what you love, who you love, places you love, etc.

Does there have to be a reason or meaning? Just enjoy the ride.

Just live your life with integrity and without envy, hate or greed and show your family and friends that you love them each and every day.

If ya can't beat 'em... pay someone to do it for you.

One could argue that the meaning of life is all about continuing the species (eg Human Beings) This perhaps makes some sense. So one could say that the meaning of life is to find Meaning in your life.

Every post here has mentioned ways to gain that meaning in our lives. Which to my mind equates to having a philosophy of life which is consistent with our values. We/you achieve this by having reasons to get out of bed in the morning, often "everyday" things such as , an elderly relative who relies on you, children, friends and family. Work colleagues, the after work activities we do such as coaching the under 7's ...in whatever that may be. so aon and so forth.

Combining many of the comments here so far would be a good way to gaining meaning.

Life is what we make it. Life is choice. Life depends on how we view things, are we seeing the glass half empty or half full?

Heaven and hell exists not on myths but here on earth, depending on how we want to live our life, do we want it to be heaven or hell, depends on our choice.

Without the pursuit of a better hereafter the only meaning of life is survival and enhancing one's own survival to the bitter end. If there is a hereafter then that changes drastically.
