The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: Meaning of Life

DEFINITIONS

Meaning of Life:

"What is the meaning of life?" is one of the most challenging questions any of us will ever confront. We can say that our Life's Purpose is "to grow, to become more than we are," but purpose and meaning may not be exactly the same thing. "Meaning" may be either personal or for all of us. Either way, it is probably best discovered for oneself. Meditate on it often.
