your life painful and apparently meaningless?
• Do you feel stuck in joyless,
repetitious, grey drabness?
• Have you achieved much, but now you long for
• Or do you just want to know the answer the really BIG question:
... What is the meaning of life?
Either way, I've got good news: I will tell you what the meaning of life is and
when I tell you this (and a bit more) you have an excellent chance of using the
info to improve your life.
Who am I to Talk?
Here I am, talking about a philosophical
question that is one of the all time biggies. Is it really possible
that a guy like me can possibly know anything about that?
answer is: Yes, I do, because I have experienced the meaning of
life, and you can, too. That's the whole point.
experience something for yourself, firsthand, the experience in
itself is proof enough. You don't need philosophers, religious
interpreters or any other kind of authority figure to tell you
anything. You KNOW.
But a little bit of knowledge and
intellectual understanding will make things a lot easier, and so I
am going to give you that, first.
Now, when you are searching
for the meaning of life, there are basically two different
directions you may be coming from. One is pleasant ('There must be
more!' or: 'It has to make sense!') and the other is unpleasant
(depression and meaninglessness). Depending on which of the two

more. You want it to come together somehow, to make sense. 'There
must be more', you think.
And so there is.
you are interested in philosophy. If so, then the meaning of life is
probably high on your list of questions looking for an answer. Most
likely the same applies if you are interested in spirituality, self
improvement and personal development.

How to Experience the Meaning of Life
Maybe you just want to experience meaning for yourself. You can do
You are probably not going to find it easy to do,
though. Why? Because it seems to contradict an awful lot of the
things that you have been taught - and a lot of deeply ingrained
habits that you have had for most of your life.
But you CAN
do it; you CAN experience the meaning of life.
I do recommend
that you read 'What Is the Meaning of Life?' [LINK upcoming] first,
