42. But seriously although perhaps that is in its self an important point about the nature of the question, it is indeed a pretty big question to answer and perhaps it is fairly subjective and the kind of thing we may all answer extremely differently, itís something that may well be different for all of us for some it may be family for others their religion/faith, perhaps to many of us there isnít much of one at all, although whether thatís a good thing is another issue, but itís an interesting question and one man has wrestled with since we have had a hole up our butts.
Maybe itís not the kind of question that is possible to answer and personally I donít know if I have figured out a ďmeaningĒ, perhaps meaning is the wrong term but maybe I feel I am getting somewhere closer to learning lessons which in its self could also be the answer, perhaps itís all about learning and growth, but as to what it is we are meant to learn to many may well be another way to answer the question, perhaps for some it may be something that includes many different things, maybe it is impossible to give it a one word sound bite answer or maybe for others it is that simple. Excuse my ramblings I am just pondering all these things as I write, I suppose if I had to give it a one word answer which is possibly the way many would want you to answer the question then I might say balance, from what I have seen of life without balance things often go to sh*t, but thatís just if I had to give a one word answer, although love would be another good answer, or if you wanted to give it a number answer like in the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy how about 1, as in all coming together as 1.
Although I am still not sure if I could give it a one word answer, I would still probably want to include quite a lot of different things, part of me thinks it canít really be answered by any one thing.
Anyway like I say itís the kind of thing you can answer pretty much any way you want to, there isnít really any right or wrong answer, I am sure the merit of our answers speak for themselves, so I am just curious however you want to answer it, what is the meaning of life for you?
All the best and keep pondering
