What is the meaning of life?

The purpose of life is to create.  Regardless of what a person believes or does not believe about God, everybody agrees that the Universe or Create is utterly remarkable.

 

The fundamental principle of Creation is creativity.  It creates non-stop in both material and non-material ways.  We, as Creatives are totally a part of this on-going process.

For me, the meaning of life is found in embracing creativity with which I, like all living things, is so richly endowed.  Life is never more rich and joyful than when I am “creating” in big ways or small—from creating art to gardening, from helping somebody in distress to encouraging a child to keep on exploring.
