Meaning of Life

What's the Meaning of Life?

This is a question I remember my fellow high school pals and I would discuss over a pot or two of coffee at the local Denny's.  We were sure we had the world figured out and our parents were ignorant and completely out of touch of...well everything.  But I remember specifically asking over and over again "What is the meaning of life?"

I remember thinking that life would be better after 30.  I knew deep down that my life would begin then.  I was leading a sad, lonely childhood within a large family with people constantly circulating my field of vision.  I find it amazing that I could feel so lonely, even though I was never alone.  But, this loneliness is what kept that question in mind.  What is the meaning of life?  Or better yet, what is the meaning of my life.

Now, fast forward to the present and I have begun to unravel the meaning of my life.  I started this search shortly after my divorce at age 35.  And, yes.  My life did begin in my 30's.  I started meditating and by doing so I began to see the depth of my being and a glimpse of what my life meaning was.

We often think that we all collectively have a meaning.  Like it is ALL of our meaning to be happy, and live a life of joy.  While this is true, farther down inside of us is a pocket of truth only accessible to us.   Our meaning is the gold at the end of the rainbow.  Our truth is specific to us, and it is our job in this lifetime to access this pot of gold.

We each and everyone of us have a gift to share with the world.  Yet too often we don't take the time or energy to seek this part of us out.  Then you look around and wonder why is there so much unhappiness?  Why are addictions on the rise?  What's up with all the shootings, wars and bombings?

If we were to each stop for a minute and asked ourselves how can I better myself instead of getting pissed off with the world and being stuck in the why- then we would see true change in the world.

I know I'm not the only one realizing this truth.  The Dalai Lama has spent his life teaching the world about peace and non-violence.  He speaks of  loving ourselves and others.  That is where true change comes from.   Look at the amazing work that Gandhi did, and all from the perspective of inner peace and love.  One of my favorite quotes by Gandhi is, "Be the change you want to see in the world."  It starts with you. 

When I found my meaning I saw VERY clearly that my love for myself had been the catalyst for all that I have become.  My reach has spread to many and my love is exponential.  All because I put myself first and fell in love with all of me.

That is the meaning of life my friends.  It's all about love.  And it needs to start with you first.  The world does revolve around you.  It's true.  But unlike my high school self who saw the world being wrapped my little finger,  I now know that I am the center and my fingers are wrapped lovingly around all who exist.

That's the power of you.  You too can embrace the world with love and make a difference with all you encounter.  All you need to do is take that love, place it in your heart, and begin to remember how amazing you really are.  Then your meaning of why you came on this earth will be realized.  One loving step at a time.
