The Meaning of Life

This question is so simple. Look it up in a dictionary. Life is to exist, to be alive, It is the reason people even wake up. God or (fate) could let people fall asleep and have that be the end. But its not that way. So go live. Fulfill your purpose. You may not know it but you are worth every second your alive. If you weren't around the world would be another step backward from happiness.

  • That gives me no reason to get out of bed or do any of the things that I think are good things to be doing. There seems to be no reason for doing the things that I do, either way I will continue to exist so why do I do what I do?

  • Doing what you are doing, gives you the ability to help the less fortunate. This will elevate your self-esteem and give your life purpose, which is what you appear to be looking for.

  • You have confused The Meaning of Life and the meaning of "life." You see, when one asks about the meaning of life, he or she is not mentioning, but using the word "life." In the same sense that one uses the word "apple" in "The apple I picked was delicious" but not in "Apple is a word," so is "life being used in your title, but not in your idea.
    Sorry friend. However, I will post a meaning of life soon. Come and comment on it. Agree or not, the very act of talking has meaning, does it not?

  • I object because the only proposed idea I can make out here is to live, but no reason is given as to why. Furthermore, every life, especially every human life, comes with a cost to its surroundings, which this proposal left unaddressed, in fact exclaiming to the contrary that a world without each of us individuals would be a step backwards.

  • That insight's pefrcet for what I need. Thanks!

  • That's an apt answer to an inteersnitg question

  • Those who are the most secure and happy with their own existences are sure of two important things; who they are to those who care for them, and what they can do to benefit those same people. I got this from a TED talk but I can't remember which one, someone please help if you remember who gave it... it was something from a Hawaii conference and focused on life's meaning and finding happiness.

    For this discussion I've taken the definitions of 'meaning' and 'purpose' to be similar enough to be interchangeable. :)
