Ever heard that phrase before? You hear it all the time on movies and in books. Someone searching out the meaning of life, or in other words, the purpose of life. So what are your takes on it? What IS the purpose of life? What's the point of birth and death? Are we just here and gone again by chance, or is there a bigger plan?
Mom to Keira (6), Garrett (5), Libby (3), and William (8-29-12) "I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it."

I've thought about that as well, around the same time I was coming to terms with my own mortality (this past fall).
The conclusion I came to is - it doesn't matter. If we're part of something bigger, we probably won't ever know, because we're just small bits of energy being changed over and over, and rarely do individual soldiers get to see the outcome of the war (figuritively speaking); if there's nothing, if there's no meaning, we just are because of conditions that were right - then I guess we won't know that either, because we'll move on to our next existance when this body your in now extinguishes itself.
I very firmly believe in cause and effect (in mind and body), in that there's an equal reaction for every action (thank you Mr. Newton), so it matters much more to me how I act now rather than why I am acting at all. You know?
To know God and His children (all other people in the world), love them, have a relationship with them, serve them with thanks for the gift of grace we have received, and to experience all the good things God put in life for us to enjoy.
