The Meaning of Life

^z 1st March 2024 at 6:31am

What's the meaning of life? First answer this: what does "meaning" mean? (Regress! Regress!)

So cut the cord: what's not meaningful? Fame and wealth. Long life, lots of kids. Seeming clever, looking pretty, acting bold.

Key is connection — to others, to nature, to self. Meaning exists in the moment. You don't have to be remembered. You just have to be.
