I can't get over the meaninglessness of life. Everything we do is an invented meaning, is there any universal meaning in life?

If I told you what the meaning of life was, it wouldn’t be particularly meaningful to you. Because you need to experience the answer for yourself. So I can encourage you to look within, to open yourself up to a deeper experience of life, to nourish all of your dimensions of being, to flourish in heart, mind, spirit, body and soul. I might also offer a few tools - meditation, time in Nature, time alone, deeper friendships, encountering excellence, breaking out of your routine, letting go of pain and grief, and so on - but again, you would need to take responsibility yourself for employing them. But really, the primary means of overcoming that existential, often overwhelming sense that life is meaningless…is to just accept it. That is a beginning. After that, if you nurture every aspect of your being (see Integral Lifework Home), you might find a spark or two of meaning will ignite within your heart and mind.

My 2 cents.
