What Is The Meaning Of Life?

Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.” – Joseph Campbell.

When you discover yourself, you will also discover why you are here, how you could have all you want, know which road leads to a fulfilling and a happy life.

The meaning of life is found by seeking to control and direct your thoughts toward where your most beautiful dreams could be realized.

The realization of your most beautiful dreams is the attainment of the feeling of contentment. No longing for more because there wouldn’t be more to ask for.

At that point, you would realize that sufficiency is the awareness that your thoughts are your most priceless assets. Your thoughts are you and you are the answer to the question, “What’s the meaning of life?”

So life is who you think you are, why you think you’re here, what you think happiness is and where you think happiness could be found.

Life and happiness are within you and they are always your thoughts. So stop the search for the meaning for life.

Searching for the meaning of life is like working hard to catch the shadow of the substance you already have. It would lead to frustration and sadness. Albert Camus said,

You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.”


  1. This is deep stuff, and I’m trying to wrap my mind around it. Thank you for sharing. What does it mean to say that we each “have a meaning we bring to life?” Essence precedes existence?

    And why do each of us inherently have meaning, but our lives do not? Are you saying that life is not worthwhile, but our existence before this life and after it are valuable? I’m curious.

      Hello Michael,

      The worth of the life that each of us has depends on the meaning each of us gives to it.

      Individuals value same things and same people differently according to the dictates of their thoughts. Thoughts are influenced by beliefs and the product of beliefs; love.

      So, our thoughts are the answers to life’s frequently asked questions. False beliefs produce negative thoughts. The consequence of having negative thoughts is misunderstanding the meaning of life.

      On the hand positive thoughts yield the correct answers to questions about the meaning of life.

      In summary, those who are in control of their thoughts have a positive outlook on life. They are the ones that bring true meaning to the life they have.

      And they are also those that have accurate understanding of what existence is all about.


      1. Thank you for the detailed explanation.
