All you need is love
The Beatles knew what was up.
When it comes down to it, there’s nothing more important than love. It’s what humanity has spent the last however many hundreds of thousands of years developing as an evolutionary advancement.
It’s what guides the best actions.
Its absence is what guides the worst.
I think there’s something to be said for spending your life in a way that is meant to maximise the love that you can give and accept and feel.
Life lacks meaning without you
Life only has meaning insomuch as you give it meaning through your choices, what you care about, and what you do with it. You. You. You.
The more you think about it, the more profound this statement is. Life only has meaning if you give it meaning. If you give up on life, you have determined that life is meaningless. If you live for something, you dedicate your life to it.
Your life derives meaning from what you do.
And far from being a self-centered “all is naught” perspective, it’s empowering to know that life is what you make of it — for good or bad. It’s on you, so make your life count.
Give your life a deep well of meaning!
There is no true meaning
Of life or anything else for that matter.
Meaning is all made-up, including whatever meaning you are making up for whatever it is that I am expressing.
Or perhaps you would prefer:
Life is Empty and Meaningless
But be careful not to imbue this expression with meaning, because:
It is Empty and Meaningless that Life is Empty and Meaningless
Credit toand their transformational program called the for this expression.
Rather bizarrely this utter lack of meaning gives an opportunity to create meaning that empowers you and others, should that be something that interests you. Or you can do something like go sit on a mountain to see if you can contemplate the true meaning of life. Whatever. The world will turn on its axis whatever we do.

To discover your Divine Essence
The most ancient, authentic revelation, the Vedas, claim that all is permeated by Brahman, the Supreme Being. It means, Brahman is the essence in us, too. Life is meant to discover this. This is not blind belief. It can be verified through proper analysis and finally by experience, apart from the fact that science also came to the conclusion that all is one energy.
The Indian tradition gives many tips how to live one’s life so this realization can dawn. The Bhagavad Gita is only one, but an important guide in this direction.
We are born to die
That is the meaning of life.
Realise the depth of this sentence, it can really change your life.
Generally people looks at the negative aspects of this statement but it can be extremely positive if interpreted in right way.

Do your own fucking thing
Seriously, you’re on this Earth, what, 75-80 years? If you’re lucky? You wanna spend half of it living somebody else’s life and dreams? That’s truly selfless of you, but the stupid kind.
Instead, take a moment and think about what you really want to do. How you want to change the world. What you want to be remembered for. How best to utilize your God-given skills in the real world. Don’t worry if it’s a road less traveled.
Feel stuck in the career choice you’ve unwillingly taken? Well, how’s this: there was a 70-year old man in my Algorithm class. He says he should have been less worried and more curious earlier in life. “But it’s never too late!” he beamed, going back to his computer screen.
Life is what you make of it. You have only a short time here, so… don’t do they, do you

There is no meaning
There is no way for you to know that you’re alive or that there is death unless you were told about it.
Which means that you wouldn’t know that there is a beginning and an end – unless someone told you.
Whether anyone told you or not, there is absolutely no possibility of ever experiencing the end. The death. There isn’t a sensation in your body, or your mind, that can experience at that time.
Life isn’t my life or your life. Life is life as it exists. The same life is in a mosquito, a tree, and everything in nature. Same life.
Does it have meaning?
Does it serve a purpose?
Death serves a purpose. Yes. When a plant dies, you and I eat it. It gives continuity to life. When an animal dies, it gives continuity to life for ten others. When you die, some being feeds on you, or you merge into the soil, in some way your death ensures continuity of life.
What purpose does life serve?
We imagine all sorts of purposes it serves? That’s just our fears of ending. We have tremendous fears of endings – ending of life, ending of jobs, of incomes, of relationships, of God, of beliefs.
Our fears of endings invents concepts, ideas that we think can make us immortal – a higher purpose that can live forever, a house we built that can become ancestral, a company that might live forever…. Blah blah blah.
All this is delusion.
I am not giving you a pessimistic view here. This is what is:
The ending ensures that life (not mine or yours) and its beauty lives on.
The nature lives, flowers, grows so it can die to continue life.
We human beings unfortunately have separated ourselves from nature, believing that we are some higher beings and everything exists for me. And so me must have a higher purpose. This belief is passed on from one generation to another.
The only way for life to continue is death.
So the only way to really understand life is to die to our beliefs. And now see what is. Isn’t it?

To ask this question betrays the assumption that life must have some objective meaning in itself. One should be aware that there simply may not be a definite answer to this question.
Most people are quite content to keep busy in life until their eventual death, never asking these kinds of questions, relying on or hoping that the previous generation has figured out these things. There is nothing wrong with this, as there may not be a ‘meaning’ in any real sense.
I am personally not content to assume the accuracy of information passed on to me without question. Although, I have to admit, that the world would be pretty chaotic if most people didn’t assume the general validity of the previous generation’s claims of what was important to understand about life, religiously culturally, etc.
Life is complicated in every direction, there is no simple answer to this question. As an existentialist, I have an answer that I find intellectually and morally satisfying:
“Pursue reality, honestly and kindly.”
I hope this was helpful,
According to me, the meaning of life is
Move forward, Never stop, Explore.
What I mean by this is in life never look back, always keep moving forward. You have to learn from the past & make your future bright. As they say never stop learning, there is no age for doing new things.
There is a saying that,
Running water never grows stale.
So never stop. Keep up with everything & everyone. Be thankful for everything you have & every lesson you have learned.
& Yes the main thing in life( For me) is Exploring! Never stop exploring, try new things, visit new destinations & unknown places, travel to unknown locations, meet new people, thank everyone, enjoy every second of your journey & respect every culture.
That’s life for me in Five words.
Hope you got your answer.
Stop questioning and experience it!
Seriously, I don’t know if there is meaning in life.
In my personal experience life is just moving on all the time, one situation follows the next one and you are kind of an observer trying to experience the moments in the most pleasant way.
As you cannot answer the question if there is meaning or not, I started to detach myself from the whole question and rather try to have a certain peace within and joyfulness that is coming from experiencing life itself.
I had many ideas of what life will be when I was younger and I was giving happiness many labels. This and that has to happen. This and that is part of a meaningful life.
I feel that I grew up and that I am closer to reality today, seeing that the only thing I really want and need is a deep feeling to be alive and to be embedded into a world that cares about me. That there is an energy that is answering my needs internally and externally and that I can communicate with this life energy and hand my imaginations to it.
Seeing life responding to what you need and who you are in a positive way is what makes life pleasant for me, but is this meaning? In my opinion not. It is just a way to co-create your life experience so it fits to you.
In the end when you ask for meaning it just means that your inner and outer world is not yet in total alignment with who you really are. Because in this alignment, when it happens, the need for meaning disappears and joyfulness appears.
