What is the meaning of life?

I want to start this book with the question that every person asks himself at some point:

What is the meaning of life?

This is how I answered this question for myself:

“The meaning of life is a to live a life full of meaning.”

One might ask: “What is that supposed to mean?” So, let’s discuss what does it mean to live a good life coming up with five theses that helped me to formulate my definition.

A meaningful life is…

- a life of overcoming challenges and undergoing personal evolution along the way;

- is a good story to tell;

- a life filled with meaningful relationships;

- a life of virtue;

- a life of service to Earth and to all living beings on it.

This is the way I see it. Later, we will be diving deep into the discussion of the meaning and all its implications, but these five are a good start. You could use these 5 theses to meditate on your own definition of a meaningful life.
