    What is the meaning of life? Why are we here?

    Humans are here to multiply and multiply and to keep multiplying until every natural resource is consumed.  Then the only way we can survive is to spread to another area and start all over again.

    "Why are we here? Because we are here. Roll the bones, roll the bones." these lyrics are from a song by the band Rush and to me it is saying, "what really matters is that since we are here let us make the most of it!" I personally believe that God created us and we are here to serve him, and yet I have not always have believed that. I have studied several different philosophies though out my life and have finally returned to Christianity.

    The meaning of life, as I see it, is not easy to describe and clearly defined. It is for each of us to reach its conclusion. As for me, I believe that it is, in its search, and not in an answer to it. In other words, the search is what keeps us all going and not in reaching a final conclusion to the meaning of our lives and those around us. I so also believe that we were purposely created and meant to reign as stewards over the earth. When we don't do our jobs, The Head Man, lets us all know. Our lives are what we all make of them. If we want to succeed, we must accomplish this in our actions that we take and in having a positive goal for us to be successful. We all evolved, as did all life on this planet. The only difference is the fact that we were purposely engineered by a creating force, we call God, and to have superior intelligence, so that we can manage all that is within our responsibilities. This provides for our future generations, our children and their children, to have as a legacy and future existence. We are indebted to our inheritors. As is all things, each person's opinions are their on about everything, right or wrong.

    I could speculate on certain views that I have and state them with confidence but in all reality that question is unanswerable until the end

    Hopefully, we are here to leave the planet in a better condition than we found it. Also, to learn and improve upon the good we found.  Most of all is to learn from those who came before you.

    We exists with the breath we take in as Qi flows within.

    Once we take our last breath of Qi, it ends our lives.

    I do believe our existence in this world is to learn the right path in helping one another as well co-exist together. It is learning the true meaning of life so we will be living in spiritual world.

    Until the day we understand the true meaning of life, we will be reborn again and again to live through lives.

    I am still in search of the true meaning of life. It is yet to be discovered. So if anyone can find the true meaning of life then we all can live in the spiritual world of peace.

    Life means some years given us by God to realise what really it is. It is like a journey, everyone has to reach destination. When their station comes they alight or they leave the world.
    Shakespeare says "Life is like a stage, where all men and women are actor and actress. We come in world to perform our role, and after performing, we leave."
    So life is a stage, a journey or we can say something that can not be defined in words. It can only be felt. Its meanings are different different for people.
    We are here to perform our duty, to see and realise the beautiful word, to see twits, to see happiness and sorrow as well, to see the changing faces, to realise how people and situation changes with the passage of time.
    If anyone realises the main purpose of life, he gets rid free from this physical world and become a part of universe.

    Homo sapiens life was meant as a method for the sleeping immortal, children of God to have enough consciousness to plan their escape from the spiritual poison of the forbidden fruit.

    Sleeping spirit can accomplish just about as much as we humans can accomplish in our own dreams. Just don't try to balance your checkbook or derive calculus answers in your dreams.

    Once we've attained spiritual reawakening -- what the Nazarene teacher called being "born again" -- we no longer have need of these temporary, Homo sapiens vessels.

    I don't think there is one answer to what the meaning of life is, there probably never will be an answer. We're here because we have evolved to what we now are, we're not here to serve anyone or anything, nor are we here to be served... just be good and enjoy!!

    The meaning of life is different for every person. Not one is the same. We are here because we are no one can answer that question.
