What is the meaning of life?

The 1st step in comprehension is to awaken from this deluded 'dream-like' state of ME, MYSELF + I by intuitively recognizing that the totality of consciousness [including what's called YOU] is merely a 'dependent-origination'. In actuality, WE'RE all [as individuals] just a loosely aggregated cluster of ever flickering 'causes & conditions' and when they dissipate [or END] into the 'no-thing-ness' out of which they arose -- so do WE. It's tré cool, because once OUR 'shared' state of fundamental BEing is fully perceived as pure flux by virtue of inter-conditionality (ie. emptiness) -- 'concern for others as manifested through selfless compassionate behavior' (a.k.a. "the meaning of life") pervades effortlessly. Because 'pain is pain' and despite the appearance of separateness to the contrary: In REALITY, there's absolutely no difference in alleviating one's own suffering vs. that of others' ... Se comprende?
