Paganism & The Meaning Of Life

Because Paganism is so varied the answer to this question will vary too. However I am curious as to how you folks see this. What would you say is the Pagan meaning of life? I'm trying to look beyond the main religions into how life is/was perceived by the Pagans.

That is a reactionary feeling to oppression. But if you were free to go your own way.....what would be the meaning to your life?

The meaning of life is to process matter and energy.

I'm a Pantheist and that is basically what the purpose of life boils down to, as far as the big picture goes. Some think that's a cold sad thing, but when I look around me, being part of this process is pretty amazing, not cold or impersonal or sad. I'm serving the same purpose as the stars, trees, oceans, earthworms. I am neither more nor less. I love that!

I am part of the great cooperative even that is the Universe. Along the way I get to experience and enjoy and participate. It feels good to be a positive part of humanity, so I do that as well, but truly I don't think it matters to the Universe, but it matters to people, and people matter to me.

The meaning of life is to find the meaning in life.

To live, love and learn. To live life to the fullest, to learn to keep in tune with Nature, build a relationship with deity

Helping to preserve the planet and all life; hoping to restore a little of what has been lost/threatened. I place no special priority on Mankind.

I tend to agree and meaning comes with 'consciousness'.
