I'm with chodamunky. I don't need a meaning to live; I'm just happy to be alive. :grin: It is truly amazing.

I appologize beforehand for the flame but...

Likwid, that is quite possibly the stupidest philosophy I've heard... how is suffering learning??

If your beloved wife dies in a freak car crash that's learning? Learning what, how sad you can be?

And lets say you enjoy... playing bass guitar before this happens, how does your wife dieing allow you to extract more joy from playing bass guitar afterwords?

I dont have a meaning in my life. it just sorta keeps going... Sometimes I sleep and it stops for a little while...Interesting how a blip of oblivion can re-energize a person for another 15 hours of wakefullness....eh..

The meaning of my life right now is to seek answers to every question i can come up with. To broaden my horizons.

"im sick of people who idealize buddhism and dont know anything about its institutions. "

no one can tell me that the "I want nothing" mentality and China's fascist, communist government aren't related...

buddhism is better than christianity when it comes to being used as a method of social control by governments.

but that doesn't mean that the true interpretations of buddhist wisdom aren't viable. I just wish guatama and lao tzu hadn't been so vague...

if you haven't figured out that suffering is learning then you must not be very far down the spiritual path.  think of it as endurance training.  you put your muscles through stress and hard work, and they learn how to be stronger :smile:

"If your beloved wife dies in a freak car crash that's learning?"

Surely - its learning how to deal with the freak-accident death of a beloved wife.

I'm not saying I agree with his original post completely, but I do see how suffering is learning.... basically because I see just about everything as learning.

THE MEANING OF LIFE IS TO DIE. lol pretty twisted thinking :smile:

well, the way i see it, the reason that nobody has been able to answer this question is the fact that life in general has no meaning. people can give purpose to their own life, and that may have meaning to them, but in the end, whatever they did will be lost. people may think this is kind of a bleak outlook, but i disagree. i have no desire for life to have a meaning. if i want my life to have one, it will. if i don't, that's fine with me...

i didnt mean that...

the "meaning" of life could be the "culmination" of all meme-exchanges through life-forms.
