  • It isn't 42 and you don't need sandals and beard to understand that there are 4 things that make life meaningful

  • Firstly, helping others

  • The most meaningless life would be to have to roll a boulder up a mountain repeatedly

  • Because what makes life meaningful is doing something useful for other people

  • We often think that the nicest thing is to be served

  • But that is nothing next to the joy of serving others

  • Fixing their heart

  • Teaching them trigonometry

  • Helping them to burp

  • The meaning of life is service

  • It's also to make something that's better than we normally are

  • We're all a bit of a mess, anxious, furious, forgetful

  • so there's meaning in creating something superior

  • The train set that's more organized than we are

  • The garden that's pretty in a way we aren't always

  • The book that says what we normally can't

  • Finding out our stuffs work is also meaningful

  • Gravity, a foreign language, computer code

  • and best of all, who we are

  • what drives us,

  • and what we should aim for

  • Lastly, meaning comes from connections with others

  • The opposite of superficial chat is when you show the vulnerable, scared parts of you to another person

  • The best way to kick-start a meaningful conversation just ask, "What are you really afraid of?"

  • So that's the meaning of life

It isn't 42 and you don't need sandals and beard to understand that there are 4 things that make life meaningful
