The meaning of life

Over the last few days, I have been seriously thinking about life, and if it serves any purpose to be alive.

Life is unnatural. What I mean is that you have to change the default settings of nature to stay alive. Nobody loves toiling, but you have to toil to stay alive. You got to eat and do other unpleasant things (like gym) to stay healthy. You need regular medication to be alive. You got to cut your hair to look good. You have to wear shoes otherwise you hurt your feet. The default settings of humankind don't match the environment we live in. You ate ever fighting nature to stay alive. To stay with unpleasant and ugly people.

After some point, nature wins and you die. People mourn you and immortalise you in various ways, but you're gone. All your struggles and joys count no more, you carry nothing with you, just scars from an unforgiving life. And you leave offsprings to suffer through life before eventually loosing the battle to nature. And the cycle continues forever.

No wonder the bible says that the dead are better than the living. But better that these are those who never were.

Are there things that 'never were'?

I do like your thoughts.
Why if the god who is so loving and caring would he not reveal in an undoutable way that which awaits us after our demise?
If our destiny is determined and known even before we are born..that makes us robots.
Why give me free will then when i choose you punish me
I have 1000 why

Deep!

I think some of these things are too complex for the human mind to understand, methinks you just need to understand your current environment and what it demands, and try your best to get the cheat codes if time allows.

We were all created in God's image, we are all the same. Because we are so perfect, small trivial things separate us from each other. Typical day
We all sleep in some form of a bed
We all wake up almost at the same time and have breakfast which is mostly tea with an accompaniment I.e bread cake left over ugali.
Lunch time we all eat lunch, mostly some starch.
The only thing that quench our thirst is water
We retire in our humble aboards in the evening and have some form of end day meal
We all get pressed and when we go to the loo it is either urine or shit.

Our purpose here is to fulfil God's goodness. In the little roles we have been assigned to play. Find you Spiritual usefulness and you be at Peace with yourself.
