| | The meaning of Life, in general
I have come to the following conclusion:
The meaning of life is creative self-expression.
As I have not the wisdom what to make of this, I'm using Steve Pavlina's 'rational intelligence' method for creating purpose, which basically means I project this context of reality onto myself and get out a clear purpose.
Since my context of reality is seeing life as a medium for creative self-expression, then when I project this context onto myself, the result is very simple — I’m a participant in the process of creation and self-expression.
To creatively express myself, however, I must understand the answer to the question "who am I" before I know what to express. For how can I express myself if I am not clear about this Self? I suspect this issue is at the heart of everyone's purpose. Also, I suspect that many people will realize that their current life purpose is off precisely because it is focused on ways to enhance one's understanding of the Self or are paths to enhance creative self-expression. If my suspicion is true, then such purposes will still be pursued, but will be subordinated to more effective creative self-expression.
