The Meaning of Life


We hear people say life is meaningless, life has no meaning. We also hear people searching for the meaning of life. So, is there a meaning to this existence called life? What is Life all about?

I guess we all have our own definition of what the meaning of life is. And life has as many meanings as the number of people being asked. Of course there will be those who say why should life has a meaning, why must life have a meaning.

Anyhow, I believe that the meaning of life can be found in Mother Nature, and in the life we live. If we were but to look a little closely, listen a little more carefully, think a bit more deeply, we will surely find the answers we seek.

They say, ‘When the Student is ready, the Teacher will appear.’ Perhaps when the time is right, the meaning of life will be revealed to you. Meanwhile, we must try to live life to the fullest. It is in living life to the fullest that you are most likely to find the meaning of Life.

Perhaps the more pertinent question for some of us would be ‘How does one live life to the fullest?’

I offer this: Ride with the Currents of Life, and do the best you can with what you have got. How’s that for a start?


We have what we seek, it is there all the time, and if we give it time, it will make itself known to us. - Thomas Merton

The earth has music for those who listen. - unknown

Hi, my name is Timothy Tang and I have just completed the book, "Real answers to The Meaning of Life and finding Happiness".

Many people feel that the interpretation to The Meaning of Life question is too subjective to have any definite objective answer but I have managed to formulate a real and objective answer to the ultimate question of human existence.

I have made a blog that introduces the book. Do check it out.
