people have ponderd the meaning of life from

 

one of the many wrong outlooks

(this paragraph is kinda depressing)

just get good grades go to grad school find a good paying steady job  have kids make them do the same then get old and...wow thats depressing that that is all it boils down to to many people

 

to (warning this contains sarcasim BUUUT i think your smart enought to get that)

be reamemberd thats all that matters being a snowflake and letting the world know that you are better then everyone else because you invented the iphone 

wow thats a horrible outlook....

 

siri says

"chocolate"

 

 

to my outlook (no sarcasm and kinda sappy)

be happy and life life to th fullest but you cant do that unless you do things like talking on the internet and playing video games to make the exiteing exiteing its not about money nor do you NEED another person to fall in love with you while it helps SO MUCH you dont need to define yourslef by looks or how much is in your bank or weahter or not you made history its defined by how happy you where life is a  race  and you dont win by comeing in first you win by how you live it  

and while exiteing and exotic is good slowing down is good to ts like this 

if everyo moment is exiteing and amazing none are and you are missing out on calm and serene moments that to live a full life you need 

all things like race and stuff are cosmetic dont let them define who you are or influence how you thinkyour soul is all that matters 

and while being smart and getting your degree and stuff is importnt a lott of people define themselfs by the outlook above and when they have that when you have your degree when you have your well paying job when you haqve the cardboard cut outs then what?....

you do need those things well at least money and a degree to make said money but still keep a life side to it dont just go 100% MUST GET (INSERT THING HERE)

 

and that was life advice from a stranger who could be any age 

i could be a 6 year old or i could be in my 80s or i could be a ghost 

after all

well cats out of the bag ima go chase it brb

 

and many others that i would have to spend the rest of my life listing and i really dont want to 

 

 

but this is the most life defineing worth reading outlook out there it turely defines life

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/life?s=t

 

 

 

 

what you wanted the meaning and that sort of is if you ask a computer

Name: Chakra

Dragon's name: Daydream

Male or Female: Male

Personality: Calm, Soothing. 

Short Backstory (optional): I discovered a young Deathsong, abandoned by his kin. He was trapped in presumably some of his own "amber", but the more I think about it I imagine the others did it to him. I set him free, but I was scared of training him due to the Deathsong's reputation to eat other dragons... But I found out that he in particular didn't have any interest in other dragons. He prefered to heat wild boars, and deer and such, along with the occasional fish. I ttrained him and he is an excellent companion. When it's time to call the dragons back to the stables, he sings his song and the dragons all come flying back. Except for my Thunderdum of course; I have to send a dragon out to go get him.

(Made by Stiger23. thank you very much!)

I would say...

The meaning of life is to create a meaningful life for yourself. Nobody can tell you what that is; your purpose is to discover what will fulfill you.

I'm thinking about meaning of life during every math class.
Good grades-> Good college-> Good job-> Money= Better life and on the end nothing really matters because you will die. And everything that humans ever created/invented, no matter if we finally manage find out how universe was created,on the end it is going to waste of time because for about 3-4 billion years Sun is going to eat us... literally ( i think it's for 3 or 4 bill. years, i forgot and i'm way to lazy to check it) Only thing that could save us is moving to another solar system which i don't think will happen anytime soon (or at all). So stop wasting your time and go livet. (total number of people who read this will do as i said=0)

Meaning of life?

It depends on your beliefs. If there's no life after death, then block & Kowwa have it right. Personally, I follow Jesus, so I would say the meaning of life is living in a relationship with Him (if we were created to love & be loved by God, then that's the only thing that will fulfill us).

WARNING LONG SIG!!

 

OK... you have been warned...

 

Welcome to

This amazing painting is by Pixel!

 

Check out

starring in my fanfic,

 

The Adventures of Elsa Jade!

 

My name is Elsa Jade (otherwise known as SefarWarrior). The Adventures of Elsa Jade tells the stories of how I became a dragon tamer and met these dragons...

Chapter 1          Chapter 2          Chapter 3          Chapter 4 (part 1)          Chapter 4 (part 2)

Chapter 5          Chapter 6          Chapter 7          Chapter 8                        Chapter 9

Chapter 10        Chapter 11       Chapter 12        Chapter 13

The first dragon I tamed was a female Chilling Horror...

 (all 3 pics by goldenfury360 (aka Hyrith))

 

She chose me as her rider, and that's when I became a dragon trainer.

 

This is Fáfnir (adopted from nevealpar). He is young, energetic, and loves playing with furry animals. He has poison in his teeth and can shape shift into any horse. I met him on a secret island I discovered, and we became friends for life... after I almost died...

(above drawing by DuskDaybreak)

 

Meet Enigma and his little sister Stellar! Enigma is a highly intelligent dragon who loves music and solving riddles. Although he isn't normally very social, he loves Stellar and would do anything to protect her. Stellar is a feisty, lovable dragon who enjoys showing off her glowing spikes, drawing pictures, and dressing up (her tail isn't actually injured; the prosthetic is her Toothless costume) :)

Ingo, my Paranoid Sandskitter from NightmareRebuff

Peacock, my Windsong from goldenfury360 (aka Hyrith)

 

Luminara, adopted from no6nialovec12345
 

The next addition to my dragon friends was Faramir. I was helping Stellar practice her night flying, when we were attacked by a wild Boneknapper and had to crash land in the forest. Stellar was uninjured, but we could hear the dragon looking for us. We knew it would find us soon unless we found a place to hide. That was when Stellar seemed to sense something else in the forest. She gave a low purring growl - a plea for help, I thought - and gradually, through the dark mist of the forest, I saw another Night Fury approaching. He was dark green, and the dark green mist he created around himself was perfect camouflage. He led us to his secret lair, a forest cave hidden behind a waterfall, where we stayed hidden until it was safe. He and Stellar became such good friends that when it was time to leave, Stellar refused to go unless her new friend came with us. He and I were both happy to agree, and the three of us flew back home. I named him Faramir because of his hidden cave (which is now our secret hideout), and also because he was so brave and selfless.

Faramir & Stellar by DuskDaybreak

 

This is Nod, the Woodland Sprite I adopted from DuskDaybreak. He lives in Faramir's forest cave, where he can stay close to his natural habitat while I train him. He is lively, imaginative, and has a great sense of humor. Although he sometimes tends to be a little sarcastic, he usually is trying to be funny rather than insulting. He's very independent and loves exploring the forest. His reckless antics are a constant source of worry for the less impulsive Faramir.

This is because I have a Whispering Death named Thrawn. Because, let's be honest, if Thrawn were a dragon he'd probably be a Whispering Death. The dragon is a Dreamworks image; the pic of Thrawn is from the cover art of Outbound Flight by Timothy Zahn.

   Finding the purpose in life can be very hard, I don't fully know mine yet. It can take a very long time to find your purpose, and sometimes when you think you have found it you really haven't. Knowing what is not your purpose can help in finding it, what really helps is knowing that your purpose is already there from the beginning(So your not looking for nothing, because it was always there.)

 

   There is something that helps, I believe in a creator of the universe. And I believe that he will reveal my purpose to me in time, and slowly it is.

 

   There is something else you would want to consider in this life: fulfillment. Fulfillment is being content with yourself, even if only a little bit. find something that you feel fulfilled in, because that will help you keep going. I find children bring me the most fulfillment and even some purpose in life, weather it being playing with them or showing them awesome lego creations or even creating bonds with them. It really brings purpose to my life, even spending time here on the forum and chatting with you guys does too. So it may be different for you, but you don't have to wait for a purpose to find fulfillment.

 

   Think about Hiccup, he found fulfillment in blacksmithing and in drawing. Until he found a purpose with Toothless as his best friend.

The Meaning of Life

From My Little Pony News: My Little Pony is the Meaning of Life:

 

"Lady_Butterscotch at the MLP Arena has proven that My Little Pony is the Meaning of Life.

"1. New show airs on October 10th.
2. October 10th is 10/10/10.
3. When we remove the slash marks we get 101010.
4. 101010 is the number 42 in binary code.
5. As good nerds and geeks know, the number 42 is the meaning of life. Because Douglas Adams said so.
6. Therefore, because we have come to associate
10/10/10 -} 101010 -} 42 with MLPs, we can therefore assume that My Little Pony is the meaning of life."

    Worth reading :)

    Also...

    -----

    You were on your way home when you died.

    It was a car accident. Nothing particularly remarkable, but fatal nonetheless. You left behind a wife and two children. It was a painless death. The EMTs tried their best to save you, but to no avail. Your body was so utterly shattered you were better off, trust me.

    And that’s when you met me.

    “What… what happened?” You asked. “Where am I?”

    “You died,” I said, matter-of-factly. No point in mincing words.

    “There was a… a truck and it was skidding…”

    “Yup,” I said.

    “I… I died?”

    “Yup. But don’t feel bad about it. Everyone dies,” I said.

    You looked around. There was nothingness. Just you and me. “What is this place?” You asked. “Is this the afterlife?”

    “More or less,” I said.

    “Are you god?” You asked.

    “Yup,” I replied. “I’m God.”

    “My kids… my wife,” you said.

    “What about them?”

    “Will they be all right?”

    “That’s what I like to see,” I said. “You just died and your main concern is for your family. That’s good stuff right there.”

    You looked at me with fascination. To you, I didn’t look like God. I just looked like some man. Or possibly a woman. Some vague authority figure, maybe. More of a grammar school teacher than the almighty.

    “Don’t worry,” I said. “They’ll be fine. Your kids will remember you as perfect in every way. They didn’t have time to grow contempt for you. Your wife will cry on the outside, but will be secretly relieved. To be fair, your marriage was falling apart. If it’s any consolation, she’ll feel very guilty for feeling relieved.”

    “Oh,” you said. “So what happens now? Do I go to heaven or censored or something?”

    “Neither,” I said. “You’ll be reincarnated.”

    “Ah,” you said. “So the Hindus were right,”

    “All religions are right in their own way,” I said. “Walk with me.”

    You followed along as we strode through the void. “Where are we going?”

    “Nowhere in particular,” I said. “It’s just nice to walk while we talk.”

    “So what’s the point, then?” You asked. “When I get reborn, I’ll just be a blank slate, right? A baby. So all my experiences and everything I did in this life won’t matter.”

    “Not so!” I said. “You have within you all the knowledge and experiences of all your past lives. You just don’t remember them right now.”

    I stopped walking and took you by the shoulders. “Your soul is more magnificent, beautiful, and gigantic than you can possibly imagine. A human mind can only contain a tiny fraction of what you are. It’s like sticking your finger in a glass of water to see if it’s hot or cold. You put a tiny part of yourself into the vessel, and when you bring it back out, you’ve gained all the experiences it had.

    “You’ve been in a human for the last 48 years, so you haven’t stretched out yet and felt the rest of your immense consciousness. If we hung out here for long enough, you’d start remembering everything. But there’s no point to doing that between each life.”

    “How many times have I been reincarnated, then?”

    “Oh lots. Lots and lots. An in to lots of different lives.” I said. “This time around, you’ll be a Chinese peasant girl in 540 AD.”

    “Wait, what?” You stammered. “You’re sending me back in time?”

    “Well, I guess technically. Time, as you know it, only exists in your universe. Things are different where I come from.”

    “Where you come from?” You said.

    “Oh sure,” I explained “I come from somewhere. Somewhere else. And there are others like me. I know you’ll want to know what it’s like there, but honestly you wouldn’t understand.”

    “Oh,” you said, a little let down. “But wait. If I get reincarnated to other places in time, I could have interacted with myself at some point.”

    “Sure. Happens all the time. And with both lives only aware of their own lifespan you don’t even know it’s happening.”

    “So what’s the point of it all?”

    “Seriously?” I asked. “Seriously? You’re asking me for the meaning of life? Isn’t that a little stereotypical?”

    “Well it’s a reasonable question,” you persisted.

    I looked you in the eye. “The meaning of life, the reason I made this whole universe, is for you to mature.”

    “You mean mankind? You want us to mature?”

    “No, just you. I made this whole universe for you. With each new life you grow and mature and become a larger and greater intellect.”

    “Just me? What about everyone else?”

    “There is no one else,” I said. “In this universe, there’s just you and me.”

    You stared blankly at me. “But all the people on earth…”

    “All you. Different incarnations of you.”

    “Wait. I’m everyone!?”

    “Now you’re getting it,” I said, with a congratulatory slap on the back.

    “I’m every human being who ever lived?”

    “Or who will ever live, yes.”

    “I’m Abraham Lincoln?”

    “And you’re John Wilkes Booth, too,” I added.

    “I’m Hitler?” You said, appalled.

    “And you’re the millions he killed.”

    “I’m Jesus?”

    “And you’re everyone who followed him.”

    You fell silent.

    “Every time you victimized someone,” I said, “you were victimizing yourself. Every act of kindness you’ve done, you’ve done to yourself. Every happy and sad moment ever experienced by any human was, or will be, experienced by you.”

    You thought for a long time.

    “Why?” You asked me. “Why do all this?”

    “Because someday, you will become like me. Because that’s what you are. You’re one of my kind. You’re my child.”

    “Whoa,” you said, incredulous. “You mean I’m a god?”

    “No. Not yet. You’re a fetus. You’re still growing. Once you’ve lived every human life throughout all time, you will have grown enough to be born.”

    “So the whole universe,” you said, “it’s just…”

    “An egg.” I answered. “Now it’s time for you to move on to your next life.”

    And I sent you on your way.

    The definition of life is flawed, because how can life define itself?

    42. Which is coincidentally also the answer to the universe and everything.
