What is the Meaning of Life? A Simple Answer to a Tricky Question

By Amarram

To be sure, greater people than me have given excellent answers to this question. On wikipedia you'll find a long article on that subject. On top of that, you can get a more or less elaborate answer from virtually anyone you ask. In the end, all of us have to find our own answer in the course of our life...

But why not give it a try and take the question literally? As if "life" was a foreign word someone asks me to explain? And maybe that's what it is all about: to talk about what I see with someone else, to be in a relationship and look at the world through one more pair of (inner) eyes.


  1. What does human 'life' mean to God?

  2. Every person's life expresses a different connotation of 'life'.

  3. As a Christian, I would answer that He loves us humans as much as a father sacrificing his only son. Hard to imagine how great such love must be!
