What is the meaning of life?

In the beginning, God created the Earth, and He looked upon it in His cosmic loneliness... And then God created every living creature out of dust, and one was man.  
"What is the purpose of all this?" man asked.
"Everything must have a purpose?" 
"Certainly," said man.
"Then I leave it to you to think about it." 

And here I am, thinking about the biggest question. However you phrase it - What is the meaning of life? What is my purpose? Who Am I? What is true?

People take that the meaning of life involves some kind of joke, if you asked them, they respond with nervous laugh and an attempt to change the subject. To some, this question is threatening, too unnerving to dare to say anything sincere or serious and so laughter seems the only safe response.

We simply do not know what is the meaning of all this. We don't know why we are here and what is our purpose. There are various theories but all of them are just hearsay.

Nature seems to be a purposeless and meaningless machine. Did we pay for our new mental freedom by sacrificing the meaning of our existence? Partially knowledgeable man stands alone, uprooted in an icy universe, lost in the chain of generations which arose from nothing, and become nothing. What is the purpose of it all? Is this the desired purpose of understanding, the last great answer to all questions asked of nature? Man has “experimented” himself out of a Godly order, away from an inner feeling of security. . . . He has made a taboo of the question of the meaning of human life—its portal has been nailed shut with planks. He no more dares to touch it, because he fears to find the dismal answer that our life has no meaning at all.- Carsten Bresch

The life has no meaning unless you want to fool yourself. All creation boils down to two things: Awareness and appearance.

Awareness is unchangeable so it is true, appearance is ever changing and it is just belief, not true. Consciousness is also content of awareness and albeit very close to it, unfortunately it is temporary, so it is not true.

Awareness or so called, God, the Absolute, Parabrahman, basically has no name. It is "not this, not that". It is perfection. And there is a problem. Imagine that we live in perfect universe on a perfect planet... what will we do? Look at... Water flowing? Grass growing? Planet spinning? How about shaping the rocks and wind shaping the mountains? How about looking at ocean and waves?

How long could you watch a nature?

You'd turn into a drooling idiot before lunch.

Boredom is the problem God trying to solve and the perfection of existence isn't solving it and there is no possibility of imperfection to spice things up. God is itself the perfection.

So, that's the setup. Perception, despite not existing, must perform the vital but impossible function of amusing the Awareness. This is impossible because the Awareness is not capable of being finite and imperfect. Chaos is not possible, flaws and errors are not possible, irrationality and inadequacy are not possible. Nonsense is not possible. The whole Universe created from the Awareness is perfect, there is no problem.... And that is the problem.

So lets there be something when there is nothing. And thus was born the illusion of appearance! And thus was born the illusion of time, energy, matter, space, causality, duality and life. With life, the illusion of man and his ignorance came around.
