Many people search blindly for the meaning of life. What they don't seem to understand is that life does not have meaning through mere existence or acquisition or fun. The meaning of life is inherent in the conections we make to others through honor and obligation.
A possible christian perspective:
Many people search blindly for the meaning of life. What they don't seem to understand is that life does not have meaning through mere existence or acquisition or fun. The meaning of life is inherent in the conections we make to others and God through honor and obligation.
I really liked this because it was a great example to me of how the secular world isn't necessarily a bad world, and this shows how close it can come to truth. To real truth.

A children's rhyme.
and dogs in loops
causing a fret
but don't regret
children are happy
the trees are sappy
causing a mess
who'd make a guess
munching on burgers
back to your station
to sink a ship
with magic whip
O what a delight
it is to take flight
to be a child
and be set wild.
Come with me if you want,
beyond this world and into the next.
We shall see things
you couldn't imagine
everything you desire
will be brought to you.
Look to the right, waterfalls
to the left, two suns
everything is under your control
fireflies lighting your paths
a lion conversing with you
as you walk to the great city.
Possibly there is a great empire here
one that you command and rule
the empire that you rule is in peace
tranquility found in every corner.
Look out your window and see
people scurry, birds glide, waves crash
the smell of flowers wafting inside
a golden haze from the setting suns
your servant glides past you
the taste of fruit entices.
As the sun sets you discover
that this was how life is meant to be
life was not about getting possessions
neither was it to be filled with malice
now let us sit down and decide
what the true purpose of life is.
What is the pension of a pigeon
or the salary of a swallow
who causes the sun to rise or fall
or the moon to cast nightingale?
Do you watch how water falls
onto a rock and casts off
over the heights of high cliffs.
Yet it is then forgotten
as it becomes the sea
it is the same with love
grand and once beautiful
it is forgotten in a quarrel
it's purpose is in Gods mind alone.
The waters power seen
and its beauty perceived
yet we quarrel over it
forgetting the ways of God
as we slander our way on
onward and into history.
History often repeats itself
we forget this each occurrence
yet from time to time
we look upon the beauty again
coming back to it's purpose
being astounded by it's figure.
People again causing questions
looking back on the legitimacy of God
debates again formed n the subject
ideas and "facts" formed, "theory" idealism
tolerance exhibited, embittered enemies
wars and fights, then all is forgotten.
Perhaps we stand only on an idea,
maybe a hope or ideal is in store
however if it all proves true
then the victory is ours forever
this destiny fulfilled and destiny
it rises in believers to perfection.
Those people who once stood in shame
are then revealed to be sons of God
they will smell of roses and fruit
they will walk with justice and love
they will be true and light hearted
their eyes will glow and show true joy.
At the end of time
they will be the victors
at the end of time
they will be glorified.
