Understanding life is one thing, asking questions and expecting answers is another. We can assume all we want that there is a purpose, a meaning, an answer. I believe there is, but why?


That is the question. Why is there Life? The meaning to the purpose to the question.

Why is there Life?

I don’t want science to tell me of the randomness, the probabilities, the unique and unlikely circumstance of it happening. I want to know why.

Here is a thought. Is the answer too big? Or perhaps the thought is too small? Can we fathom the question, or understand the meaning? Or are we simply answering ourselves? Questions keep spinning until…we stop asking. Our minds not equipped for the infinity of the questions. It keeps going, infinitely circling in our minds, until we forgot what we asked.

What did we ask again?

Oh yes,


Such a small word, such a large possibility. Perhaps one day it will be not a matter of why, or how… it simply will be,

A question

  1. Hello Enreal,

    I was just thinking along these lines today too.

    I think that there is life so that “you” can enjoy it.

    “You” means many things, including the you who invented this world in the first place, as well as many levels of imaginary yous.

    But isn’t asking such questions a way of adding one more layer of abstraction to the experience? Apparently that is what “Yous wanted. 🙂

  2. This is stunning enreal and reading it made me think of something that had “appeared” in my journal in another conversation with myself:

    Why am I here? – To tell a story!
    What story is that? – Yours!
    What is my story? – The reason you are here!

  3. This is my favourite of all questions. There are times when I dont ask it now(they are rare). Somewhere I remembered my elder’s voice saying “life is what you make it” and then I thought if that is true, maybe thats why I am here – Experience, Learn, Make My Life, Manifest my Thought and all of that happens only if I allow myself to BE without riddling myself with analysis…
