Ladies and Gentlemen, Uncle and Aunties, Boys and Girls, GrandPa and GrandMa, Good Afternoon ~ okay okay .. cut this crap .. HAHA .. well there is a question i would like to ask everyone of you, this may be a difficult question or can be an easy question, depends on YOU !
Here it GOES ! What is the meaning of life? What is the purpose you live in this earth?
What is life? What do you mean by what is life? Many people asked these questions and yet they cannot answer themselves. The search for the purpose of life has puzzled people for thousands of years. Contrary to what many popular books, movies, and seminars tell you, you won't discover your life's meaning by looking within yourself. You've probably tried it already, so there is no way you can tell yourself what you were created for!
Let's say, if i handed you an invention that you never even see before (for example: McLeod gauge), will you know how to use it or will you know that it is safe to touch it or anything? You don't even know its purpose, and what will you do? Of course, reading its instruction or manual to know what it is for OR find the creator that invented that invention!
For thousands of years, brilliant philosophers have discussed and speculated about the meaning of life. Phylosophy is an important subject and has it uses, but when it comes to determining the purpose of life, even the wisest philosophers are just guessing. Dr. Hugh Moorhead, a philosophy professor at Northeastern Illinois University, once wrote to 250 of the best-known philosophers, scientists, writers, and intellectuals in the world,asking them,"What is the meaning of life?" He then published their responses in a book. Some offered their best guesses, some admitted that they just made up a purpose of life, and others were honest enough to say they were clueless. In fact, a number of famous intellectuals asked Professor Moorhead to write them back and tell them if he discovered the purpose of life!
So, i would like to ask everyone again, What is the meaning of life? Please feel free to write down your opinion in the comments. I would like to see in everyone's view, you can write in poem, simple words or describing or etc... =) let us open our discussion in the comments, thx ~
