The meaning of life

This is the one question Google doesn’t have a decent answer for. I know this because I Googled it a few years back only to discover numerous listings on Monty Python’s film from the 80’s. Is this the most accurate source we have for spiritual guidance concerning this topic? For some reason while sitting in a lonely cafe sipping coffee and eating rhubarb pie I once again I contemplated this quandary. Strangely enough I seemed to stumble across the answer. It actually came from a parallel I was drawing with the trail. Enjoy what it provides for you and leave it in better shape for the next person. Could the world be that simple?

When I got home I completed packing for my evening flight to Abu Dhabi. As I was about I leave the apartment the handle of my suitcase completely snapped off. The following is what transpired. I guess it’s true what they say: ‘it’s about the journey not the destination!’

Music: Radical Face, All is well (goodbye, goodbye)

It was a long flight but for the first in a long time I enjoyed a lengthy conversation with the person next to me. A German school teacher called Mr Wild. How does one get a name like that!? We chatted like old friends until I had to force myself into a sleep coma to be able to get up and go straight to work upon arrival, ergh! After 11 hours in the office I was done, and I’m now sitting eating room service ready to crash for a decent nights sleep.

  1. The “Meaning of Life”? That ought to stir up some interesting comments.. I happen to come from the school of thought that there is no meaning to life. It’s a freebie, Just do whatever you can to make it interesting and fulfilling and forget about all the spiritual stuff. Your philosophy is a good one. I would stick with that.

  2. Yes I think the journey is what is most important but we are certainly not leaving the planet in a state that is better than what we found it.

  3. Joh 3:17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
    Joh 3:18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

    Opposite point of view here…….the God you know and serve determines your destiny………….

  4. Personally I think Monty Python got it right in the movie “life of Brian”. Just look on the bright side of life. The meaning is in one’s attitude.

  5. I went through that after my Mum died and took up hiking to find the an answer which ended up being, there is someone greater than myself. Unless you are the Creator who made all that beauty and awesome nature then that is true for you. I want to know that someone because it is amazing universe. I don’t believe accidents make for all of it.

  6. Hello Rozanne,

    For your question on the “Meaning of Life” – – one of the most important and thought provoking books I have ever read on this topic is Victor Frankl’s “Man’s Search for Meaning”. It was a very moving book for me. I highly suggest it.

    I am continuing to love your posts – – keep writing, please.
