What is the meaning of life? This is a question I have pondered over for a very long time. As it so often happens, while day dreaming in the shower, it slapped me in the face. I was asking the wrong question!! The question I should be asking is what is the meaning of existence? And the answer is simple, Life. Life is the raison d’etre. Its meaning is itself, it is the reason for existence, it perpetuates itself. Every living thing spends its life replicating itself. It is life longing for itself. We are but one expression of life and our purpose is to live and reproduce. In living and reproducing, we get to experience much along the way to death, where the process starts all over again for a different expression of life.
