      Life for all is different we live to die its what we do in the middle that shapes the future for others, every action has a reaction we have to learn as we go.

      Life is without meaning. It is merely a gift of a blank canvas for you to paint your view. Others can only look upon your picture and project their meaning onto it, but only the painter knows intimately what is portrayed. Paint with purpose and use as many colors as you can always adding layers and texture. Though it's a painting that will never be finished it should be a lasting reminder of the beauty that is the painter! Live! Embrace every moment of joy and sorrow, pain and laughter, every emotion a different color, a different texture, and every life a different painting yet all made with the same paints.

        Ah, Poppa Blues, you beat me to it.  Making meaning is a very human thing to do.  The universe does not necessarily have a plan, especially one that only directly effects lowly homo sapiens.  We're just another organism among many - our intelligence, as much as we'd like it to, does not privilege us in the context of everything that is. 

        Meaning is so arbitrary, but many require it because the alternative is so bleak.  I'm personally trying to find comfort in the fact that I don't matter.  Contrary to what many believe, that outlook can actually be quite liberating.

          It is not that you don't matter, because you DO matter. It's other people's views/judgements that shouldn't matter.

          Your acceptance among others isn't necessary for living life.

          Your acceptance among others is to find true happiness with onself.

            theageofcakeposted 7 years ago in reply to this

            What I meant by "I don't matter" is not that I am deprived of the acceptance of others.  It is simply that the whole notion of thinking of yourself as particularly meaningful in the universe is something of a childish concept to me.

            I can create meaning for myself, and be happy with my own identity, but I acknowledge that doing so is artificially constructed for my own comfort.  The universe doesn't care if I live or die or find happiness while I'm a part of it.  Human emotions are trivial in the big everything.

            I could also say that everybody else does not matter, but I don't want to be argumentative, and on some level can respect why most people would not want to confront that.

            So I appreciate your consolation, but I didn't mean to perpetuate a tone of "poor me!"  I was simply stating what I believed to be a reasonable evaluation of my role as a human being.

      The meaning of life is live. Pretty simple I think.  You don't have to do anything really either which makes life a pretty easy task. 

      Everything in between is what life does before it dies. 

      So the meaning of our existence is to live, do and die. big_smile

      I believe the meaning of life rests within the Glory of our Creator.  As mirror images of His glory, we are to love Him with all our mind, body, spirit and love our neighbor as we love ourselves.

      It is uninterrupted reciprocation between the Creator and the Created.  This is love; without it, everything is meaning...less.

      Peace,

    The Meaning Of Life is simple, atil.

  16. Cagsil profile image61
    Cagsilposted 7 years ago

    The meaning of life?

    That would depend on who you talk to.

    Religious leaders and religious based groups WANT and EXPECT you to accept they know and understand "true" life.

    How ever, this is false.

    Jesus Christ, not a preacher, but a teacher, only wants YOU to accept your human consciousness, as your guide in your life and to accept your conscience as your tool for morality, and to cherish/value other people's lives, as well, as your own.

    By accepting the above- You obtain any goal set by you for yourself. You have no need to seek external guidance, to gain eternal life, you only have to accept your life.

    Your life's meaning:

    Purpose: to be set by YOU and no one else.

    *rule one: protect/perserve life at all costs.

    *rule two: live by your conscience morality, to do good work by helping humankind to live.(any immoral action- only destroys life)

    *rule three: always maintain the highest self-responsible level you can.

    There is no other meaning.

      1. Cagsil profile image61
        Cagsilposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        Are you serious?

        If you choose no purpose, then you'll be no different than the animals already roaming the Earth. You will become guided by others, and used for their own purposes and not yours. Therefore, you will have wasted for your entire life on nothing.

        If you're satisfied with that- seek medical help now, before you die.

        If you choose not to be moral, by creating immoral acts, you are to become a life/value destroyer, and will more than likely hated by many, which at some point will end your life.

        If you chose not to be self-responsible for your own actions, eventually, your conscience will destroy your life, you'll end up hating life and then there is good chance...if you have the courage and are not a coward, will be "suicide", because you won't be able to live with yourself.


        Any other questions.

            Who wrote these rules? No one wrote them, there built-in to your human consciousness and conscience.

            How are you so sure that a serial killer hates his life? What he feels or his emotions are not moral or immoral, but their action to DESTROY life, cannot be allowed to happen because of the value of life.

      To be a servant to humankind? True! Always help protect life.

      To be transparent? True! Always be honest yourself and others.

      To be selfless? FALSE! To be selfless for a long period of time can be detrimental to one's own existence and goes against the nature of humankind.

      To lay your life down? True! Only in the essence of protecting one's own existence(defend) and protecting of others.

      To be love? Or did you mean to be LOVED? To be loved, one needs to be at peace with oneself, to love self first, then you'll learn to love/value humanity.

      As you can see, I agree with most of what you said and none of what I said is in reference to any religious belief.

      It's proven facts about life and the proper way to live life.

              I find your reply interesting.

              Therefore, I must respond.

              I feel you've completely made my case, but you don't realize you've done that.

              I find that tid-bit ironic.

              But, since you were so kind to do so, I only feel it is necessary, to help you understand, how you did that.

              And, I do so by acknowledging science, human nature and human consciousness/awareness, and human conscience.

              With that said- if you are not sure what any of those are, then I suggest you read up or take a refreshers course.

              How ever, I will break it down:

              What is Human Nature?(goes for every human being on the planet!)

              Answer:
              To satify one's own healthy needs and to set one's own standards...to live without being obligated to fill someone else's needs or to follow someone else's standards. But in freedom, a person's actions must be rational and responsible to be beneficial. Irrational or mystical actions will always diminish a person's well being and happiness.

              So, if you do not accordingly, you defy your own existence to be who you are, which contradicts the main REASON for your human consciousness and/or conscience.

              Human Consciousness: to be self-aware, the ability to know oneself is alive.

              Human Conscience: is a guide for moral/good and/or immoral/bad actions.

              When you answer to any other authority or give up your free will to control your own life, either through religion or mystical roots, you deny your own ability to live, as you were intended.

              GOD supposedly want you to go against Life? Please say it isn't so.

              Yet you follow.

              Now, that's insanity!

        So you have met the needs of others and your's will be provided so that you can in turn give even more.

    2. Cagsil profile image61
      Cagsilposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Hey flightkeeper,

      Here is an easy answer: Life- is a journey defined by oneself's human consciousness/awareness and conscience, that defines oneself's purpose, then uses free will thinking to design a plan and the steps involved, and when the plan is finished, set actions into motion.

      You answer to no one. You are guided by your human consciousness and conscience. No other assistance is required.

      You can rationalize anything you see, taste, smell, touch and hear.

      You can NOT rationalize anything that is unimaginable. You might be able to imagine a "GOD" in your, but that is a fictional picture in your mind, because you've never seen him/her.

      Therefore, you accept what you can rationalize and all other matters are to be dismissed. Because, if you don't, then your subconscious will suffer, you age more quickly, your body deteriors and you eventually die.

      If you take anything away from religion- take this- Life Is Eternal and Heaven does exist. But, it's not what you think.

      Life is Eternal- Yes, Human Being potential eventually leads to Immortalility.

      Heaven is Earth!

      Another to remember- Jesus Christ was a Human Being. He did not teach religion. Yet, his scriptures are in religious text.

      The 'church' absorbed his teachings, and he followers, after they Murdered him.

      He did not die for anyone's sins. He died because he refuse to preach religion, to perpetuate the hoax, religious leaders were controlling slaves with.

          I offer advice on Life, because I spent the last 20+ years researching Life. I can also debunk any "GOD" misconceptions.

          I started my research by comparing science and philosophy against religious doctrines and text scriptures. The history time-line and where exactly humankind advancement was during that time.

          What I found was astounding, to say the least.

    Perhaps the meaning of life is different to all. Are we speaking of the meaning of a person's life to themselves, other people's lives to one person, or our reason for existing?
