What is the meaning of life?

Please forgive my typing this reply to your question on this separate paper.  The truth is I have no skill at fitting your prepared form into the reach of my computer and I daren’t hand write since my arthritic fingers produce such an ugly script.

My response to your question is—

I believe that we shall, eventually, come to see that the sole object worth worship is the cosmic entirety, especially in those aspects of it which give us and sustain our lives here on planet Earth.

I believe that whatever God we honour will eventually be seen to be best served by developing our sense of the sacred in these his/her/its profoundest works and serving the deity through the love of them.  If we have dispensed with the notion of God then these works are mysterious and powerful enough to command a love and respect the equal of worship.

I see the Meaning of Life to be found in life’s challenge to us to recognize the fullness of the sacred available to us in all its glory without myth or legend.  At its simplest the Meaning of Life is Life.
