The meaning of life

So... I was sitting in my car today on the farm, a guitar in hand and rain falling down all

around. I started contemplating the meaning of things — as one sometimes does — and from the depths of somewhere, I realised what the meaning of life is.


Now, a lot of people won't agree with me, some might, some won't care... I honestly don't care :) I'm just sharing something from my brain. You might believe some stuff I do, you also might not. I believe there is some form of eternal life after this existence. What exactly that is, I have a life to try and figure that out.


So, what is the meaning of life?


The meaning of life is to live this life... That's simply it. It's not about doing some big spectacular thing, but if you want to do that, go for it.


What am I talking about? I'll lay my thoughts out.


If there is eternal life after this world, why not just be born into that? Well, because if you were born into eternal life, you wouldn't understand it or appreciate it. The only way you could truly understand and appreciate an eternal life, is to have experienced a fleeting life that comes to an end. So the meaning of life, is to experience life so that you have a full life in whatever the next step is.


Look, I'm spending my life trying to figure out meanings and universal truths, so this might change, but today was quite a powerful though for me and it's a step on my path.


How better to appreciate being an immortal being, than to experience mortality...


Obviously, don't be a dick, live a good life and help others when you can is important. You've got to live with yourself for eternity, so don't have bad stuff you've done in this life eat at you for, you know, forever...


That's my little bit for today. I hope you found something interesting here, if not, that's cool too.


Bye for now.
