I've got so and so many years to spend my life.
Do I work at mcdonalds?
Do I make music or sketches?
Do I make boardgames, or computer games?
Do I watch a lot of tv?
Do I talk to people about basically unimportant things?

All of that has little lasting value in my mind.

Would you trade your worldly hours and pleasures in exchange for a small chance at an eternal life?

Some people do this via religion. But, it seems like a bad gamble. What are the odds that these gods even care or help humans at all? We're gamblers. Sometimes unrealistic gamblers. I don't want to be like that, but I don't want to be a materialist either.

I've been asking myself questions like that lately.
I used to be polytheistic, mildly, that was part of my belief, but I recently went to atheism, not anti-spirituality, but the idea that there is no such thing as an all powerful being. Therefor all gods are not gods. A solid law of all realities is that what ever ultra-intelligences is there, it is unable to talk to us or even see us. It's most likely a minor creature.

I don't want to have a meaningless life.

Do you realize we are floating in space & you have the most beautiful face? Lighten up buddy, don't let the world beat you down. Never live life as a self appointed victim, that will resonate into the best possible circumstance.

Then dont be meaningless.

I often feel empty and alone, but i remember that i am a manifestation of the ONE and i kick myself back up. Nobody is going to give you meaning but YOU.
So get off your lazy ass and produce it, let it ooze out of every pore of your being, smash your fist into those who lack it or are weaker so that they feed upon yours.
Why do you think you even worry about meaning in the first place?

Set a goal. This gives you meaning.
The goal should be realistic, achievable, and honest, not based on hyperbole, fantasy.

Your goal should be personal, not what others do, or think you should do, or think is worth doing and/or not doing.

Prepare for a degree of disappointment because no matter what the real and the ideal are never in sync. The degree your goals are realistic and honest determines the degree of disappointment.

Then settle for the outcome, and move on.
