The Meaning of Life - Not just another dust in the wind theory.

Written by John Dyer

I grew up inrepparttar south inrepparttar 146372 1960's. Married when I was 18 and joinedrepparttar 146373 Army when I was 23. I traveled to Germany then back torepparttar 146374 states where I lived in Connecticut for a while and then Tennessee for 10 years. I am now living in Maine.

Of allrepparttar 146375 traveling I have done in my life I have heard people asking one question constantly. It doesn't matter if you are religious or not. We all want to know "What isrepparttar 146376 meaning of life?" I myself have asked that question a thousand times.

Socrates and Plato and a thousand other deep thinkers of their times have tried to define or explainrepparttar 146377 meaning of life. Each with his own perception and understanding and most times with a very complicated explanation.

It was not until I took up hiking inrepparttar 146378 mountains of Tennessee that I had plenty of time to ponderrepparttar 146379 complexities of this age old question. Being a Christian I was raised to believe certain things and to look at life in certain ways. But as I got older and began studying and searching for myself I began to realize that what I was taught as a child was not as complicated as some would have had me believe.

I always wondered why God would have put us here simply to suffer through this life. After all he does love us and of that I have no doubt. So why then? I studied and pondered and reflected in deep thought just like many have before me, and like them, to no avail.

Then one day while hikingrepparttar 146380 Appalachian Trail in Tennessee I came to a clearing overlooking a valley. It was a clear day withrepparttar 146381 sun shining bright. As I looked out acrossrepparttar 146382 valley I saw an eagle soaring onrepparttar 146383 wind. And as usualrepparttar 146384 thought crossed my mind that it would be really nice to be able to soar like that. Then I thought, do eagles look at us and wish they were like us?
