The true meaning of Life..What is it? I ask myself this question every day and even though I haven't come up with a concrete answer as yet there are some things that I have come to understand about life that have made me more accepting of it. To be able to understand the reason why you have been placed on earth you have to believe that there is a higher being that has planned all this for a reason. I do not believe that our existence is a random occurrence with no meaning or relevance whatsoever. This would trivialize our entire existence, the family relationships that we share and the complex feelings of love that we nurture towards one another. Emotions cannot just spring out of nowhere, they have to have an initial seed that was planted in us by someone who understood them and it definitely was not some cells in the oceans that made us the complex and emotional creatures that we have become. ~~~~ Some experiences in life are traumatic and leave you ill or disabled or you might experience deaths of your near and dear ones which make life not worth living. This is when you have to put your faith in the higher being and just trust in Him. The more life tests and tries you, the more you accept that this journey is short lived. Think of it like this, we are in actual fact 'aliens' who have come from another place in this vast universe and when we die we will go back where we came from. That will be the real world where life will be eternal and without physical constraints. On this earth we are vulnerable as humans and it is by looking after this physical entity that we have been given that we can try and cope as best as we can. This means eating healthily, exercising our bodies and avoiding excesses that will make our bodies ill and diseased a lot faster than they would normally. ~~~~ What it all boils down to is, the meaning of life is what you tell yourself it is. Each one of us has a different purpose; some are more clear of this earlier on in life then others. Only you can give your life "true" meaning and value, others may help add to it and offer more inspiration but the ultimate decision is yours. Life is beautiful wherever you look; it is the way you look at it that gives it that beauty. Above all remember how temporary it all is, it could all end today or tomorrow, who knows? Why waste your life worrying about things that might not even happen. Live for today but live that day like it is your last.
