Musings

“What’s the meaning of life?”  That can be answered by exploring our tendencies and creating our own meaning. 

If we do this correctly, we experience fulfillment and the question doesn’t matter.

  1. You’re right! Meaning is absolutely self-created, a solely human phenomena. And if we take responsibility for the creation of our meaning, we are empowered, energized, equipped to live. Sartre, I think, would have agreed.

  2. Agreed. The meaning of life is not the same for everyone. It is an individual revelation-become-understanding that is unique to that individual no matter the similarities to others.
    I would contend that it is not a completely self-created/self-determined phenomenon, however. Despite the idea that the discovery of the meaning of life is a unique thing, I would argue that it is to a significant degree relativistic. The context of that relativism is reality and, more specifically, the reality of the individual.
    To discover the meaning of life takes both self-exploration (one’s tendencies) and an understanding of the world around the individual and how he/she relates to that world. I use “world” to be all inclusive of the person’s reality which includes all things – people, stuff, location, etc.
    And again, I agree. Once discovered, the question is all but forgotten due to the sense of fulfillment. The question is no longer necessary because of the answer… go figure 😉

  3. In my opinion, we have meaning, purpose and reason. These three are related but shifted in time. Meaning seems like a definition, where reason appears a justification, but what is purpose? Intention is drive, and we use it to live. I’d go for purpose, and that is easier to answer. Yes, meaning is a self arrived definition, reason is an analysis, and purpose is what we aim to do. We strive to live a happy and productive life. Meaning is why.
