When we give up all fictional stories, we will see reality with much greater clarity than before. You will see the truth about yourself and the world, and you will see that nothing can make you miserable.
Forget about the meaning of life.
Questions about meaning have no sense, as the answers are always based on fictional stories - stories that are not real.
Ask this question instead: “how to get out of suffering?”
Suffering is the only real thing. Meaning is not real.
Give up all fictional stories.
Only then will you see reality more clearly and realize who you are.
