“I don’t believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.”
Many (most?) people strive endlessly to fathom the “meaning” of life through introspection, exploration of religions and belief systems, joining others’ philosophies who seem to “get it”, etc. And yet most never seem to find the answers they seek. My observation is that the people most at peace and truly satisfied and happy with their lives are those that focus less on meaning and more on fully experiencing their daily lives. Those other activities have value, of course, but they don’t satisfy our human needs unless we open ourselves up to truly experiencing all aspects of our lives – even the most mundane. Open yourself to experience your life!
